Adoptable Pet of the Week: Pig Pen

Share This!

Pig Pen at Animal Protection Society of Durham

This sweet and snuggly 11-month-old currently stays in a wonderful foster home. He got his name because when he arrived at the shelter, he was a bit of a mess, and staff thought of the affectionate character in the “Peanuts” cartoon. Like the character, he is amiable, but he’s not messy at all and wears his black velvet coat beautifully.

Adoption fees for cats and kittens are typically $95, but for the month of February, all APS cats are $50 for its Meet Your Match promotion! That fee includes a basic wellness exam, parasite check, heartworm test and deworming, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, and start off with one month of free pet insurance.

Thanks to our sponsors, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive a complimentary first wellness visit from Park Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care and a free full day of camp at Camp Bow Wow.
