"Donkey" could be yours on "Fury Friend Friday" from PCHS
(Glenwood, MN)--The Pope County Humane Society has another fun buddy up for adoption on "Fury Friend Friday." This time it is "Donkey" up for adoption. I’m cuddly and curious. I love being involved in whatever you’re doing. I’m like your shadow! I do great with kids. Because of my playful nature, I would get along with other similar cats, but would probably annoy a calmer cat. While I haven’t met any dogs, the staff think I would likely do well with dogs based on my personality. I came to PCHS with my siblings (my brother Pig is the only sibling of mine who has not been adopted) when we were about 6 weeks old, on May 11th. We’ve been patiently waiting for our furever homes.
