  • Pet of the week - Smiley Cyrus

    Smiley Cyrus is in the kennel!

    I’m a medium-sized spayed female feist mix. I came to the shelter as a stray and my owners never came to claim me. I smile on command and when I’m saying hi.

    The shelter staff believes I am 3-4 years old. I like dogs. However, cats are not my cup of tea.

    I’m spayed and up-to-date on my vaccinations so I am ready for my next home.
