Meet the Post-Dispatch Pets of the Week!

Zoey-A564624 logo

Hi, my name is Zoey and my ID Number is A564624!

Although she is in her golden years, nine-year-old Boxer and English Bulldog mix, Zoey, is still a puppy at heart! Even as a senior, this lovely lady still loves to play. Zoey likes to stay active by going on walks or rolling on the floor with her favorite squeaky toy. Aside from exercise and playtime, Zoey loves to snuggle up close for kisses, hugs, and belly rubs. Zoey loves people of all ages so she is hoping to find a family who will spoil her for the rest of her doggy days!

Marsha-A683663 logo

Hi, my name is Marsha and my ID Number is A683663!

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! Like her namesake television character, one-and-a-half-year-old guinea pig, Marsha, loves getting all the attention. This little lady enjoys nestling under her grass bedding but would prefer to cuddle up close with you. She enjoys playing hide and seek, popping up to say hello when human friends are near her window. While outside her enclosure, Marsha likes to be gently handled and held so it’s important her new family learn how to properly support her while out and about. If she appears a bit skittish at first, spend some time softly stroking her fur during feeding and she will soon become your best buddy!

To adopt, apply in person at HSMO’s Macklind Ave. headquarters in St. Louis City. Click here for hours and directions.

Buck-A670975 logo

Hi, my name is Buck and my ID Number is A670975!

Buck has a certain spark that brings a smile to everyone he meets! This five-year-old German Shepherd mix is looking for an active home that celebrates his outgoing personality. He would love to accompany his new human friends on long walks or adventurous hikes through the woods. Buck is a happy guy who can’t wait to start anew with a family he can love and who will love him right back. Come meet him on Macklind Ave. today!

Hi! My name is Picard and my ID Number is A683079!

Seven-year-old Labrador Retriever, Picard, is ready to go full speed ahead to his forever home! Picard may be a senior but his age doesn’t slow him down in the slightest. This handsome guy still enjoys a nice walk and playtime with his human friends. He was rescued by HSMO’s Animal Cruelty Task Force from a substandard breeder so he is looking for a new crew who will provide a safe and loving home through his golden years. Jump into your spacecraft or beam on up to HSMO’s Macklind Ave. location and meet your new best bud!

Turbo-A681259

Hi, my name is Turbo and my ID Number is A681259!

Three-year-old Chihuahua, Turbo, is tiny but mighty who would be the perfect companion in a home where he can be the top dog! Young kids are not up Turbo’s alley – he wants all of your love to himself! He is happiest when his human friends are giving him pets from head to tail. Turbo would love a family who will give him all the chew toys his heart desires, and the forever home he deserves.
