Autumn and Glory (Mitchell County Animal Rescue)

I am going to feature animals from our local shelters here at least once a week. These are great cats and dogs who simply want a home to call their own; a place where they can feel safe and loved. Adopting a shelter animal is the best way to get a pet.

Today, we have Autumn and Glory. They reside at the shelter run by Mitchell County Animal Rescue (MCAR).

Autumn is an 8-year-old Golden Retriever. She was surrendered after being with her family for 7 years. Their reason: because she didn't like chickens. So, Autumn cannot be around chickens. Not that hard. She is fine around everything else. She also knows how to sit and stay and she is just the absolute perfect dog for any family. Even though she is 8 years old she is still VERY active and loves to run around and play ball. She also loves to be brushed. Considering her age, Autumn's chances are not real good. Most people come in to shelters looking for puppies or younger dogs. But, if the right person would come along, this girl still has a lot of years and a lot of love to give.

And here we have Glory. Glory has been at the shelter for a while and is getting pretty bored in her cage. She is a very talkative girl who doesn't have that much interest for other cats, but the shelter staff thinks she would be fine in a home with others. She does not try to attack them or anything, just gives a warning sound if they get to close. Glory is a Domestic Medium Hair and is around 2 years old. She loves to be petted and held. This girl really deserves a second chance, and her time is running low with kitten season fast approaching.

Mitchell County Animal Rescue can be reached at (828) 765-6952. They also have a page on Petfinder.

And in the immortal words of Bob Barker: "Please, help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered."
