This week's Pets of the Week at Baltimore Humane Society are Randy and Peaches. Here's what they each have to say--
Hello. My name is Randy and I am a Pit Bull Mix who was at another shelter and then in a foster home for awhile before coming to BHS. I am very sweet and enjoy being around people -- especially if they give me belly rubs. I have a tendency to slobber a lot so a helpful hint from me to you is to carry a little towel when you're with me. If you look at my face, don't be alarmed about all of the scars -- we don't really know what happened to me, It’s possible I was abused or used for fighting/bait. I like to play with tennis balls and unstuffed animals, but I am very dog selective so it would be best for me to be in a home where I am the only dog -- more attention and love for me. If you come to BHS to see me, please ask one of the staff members to get me out of the cage for you because I don't really show well in the cage. I hope to see you soon.
Hi there, I'm Peaches and I'm a Seal Point Californian bunny! I originally came to BHS from another county’s Animal Control, where I was seized from a hoarding situation. I’m looking to start a new life now, one where I'm cared for properly and have a nice home to share. I'm a good bunny, although I could use some socialization and may not be the best choice for homes with small children. Think I'm the bunny for you? Come on out to the shelter to see me and fill out an application!
The adoption fee for Randy is $165 because she’s sponsored and $50 for Peaches. Plus both get a free bag of starter food!
