Photographer Lisa Cornwell is one of the countless volunteers who help make a difference for homeless pets. While many of us are looking forward to celebrating the Fourth of July, these pets are decked out in red, white and blue and hoping to be home for the festivities. A long weekend is a perfect time to adopt a pet.
From Lisa: “I run a small photography business and do the profile pictures as well as the dress-up holiday photos for the adoptable animals at Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society. I took most of these just last week to feature some of our adoptables for the Fourth of July.”
Chester is a large Shar-Pei Mix of only 1 ½ Years. Chester is shy with new people and is a rather laid back, quiet personality. He is extremely loyal once he becomes attached to someone.
Chester is very hesitant around children, so they are not recommended. He has not gotten along with any dogs at HS so any other dog in the home would need to meet with Chester before adoption.
Chester being an only dog in a home without cats would be ideal. Chester has been at GGCHS for 23 weeks.
Patches is a 1-year-old male Heeler mix. Patches are smart, social and very playful. He seems to get along good with all people but only certain dogs. Patches has not yet been cat tested. He has only been with GGCHS for two weeks.
Catnip is one ½-year-old Female Calico and White cat. She is a beautiful sweet cat that seems to get along with everyone. Catnip is now being featured at our local Pet Sense. She has been with GGCHS for six weeks.
Tigger is a female 15-year-old long hair Tabby Cat. Though she is a senior with some hair loss, she is still a beautiful girl who has a ton of love to give. Tigger is very laid back and enjoys curling up with the other cats for a long nap. She would love a calm home with lots of Temptation treats (her favorite) & a/or several cat friend (s). Tigger has been at GGCHS for over a year.
Blackie is a 3 ½-year-old male Tuxedo cat. He is incredibly sweet and laid back but wants to be wherever the action is. Blackie loves both other cats and dogs. He will seek out attention from all in a room and doesn’t shy away from children. His ideal home would have a couch where he can curl up with his person or people and is also a huge fan of Temptation treats. Blackie has been with GGCHS for 1 ½ years so almost half his life.
Both Blackie and Tigger spent the last 4th of July in the shelter; it would be wonderful if they could celebrate this year in a real home.
If you have pets (newly adopted or long time residents, please be sure to keep them safe during the 4th of July!)
