Habersham County’s animal shelter is full of loveable, adoptable animals just waiting to find their homes for the holidays.
This week, Now Habersham is featuring Bandits the cat and Patton the dog, two animals who were rescued by Habersham County Animal Care and Control from dangerous situations. While they might have come from bad places, these two animals love people and would be happy to be part of someone’s forever family.
Bandits, a male senior cat, was rescued from a hoarding case in Clarkesville. He may be old, but he’s far from grumpy.
“Being held is the highlight of my day,” Bandits says. “I love to cuddle and give kisses. The place I’d be happiest is with a laid-back person— or a family— that would like to have a snuggle buddy while they watch TV.”
Bandits is very affectionate, and would really like to be adopted by someone who likes to cuddle. He’d also like a home where he can get his paws on some good, filling meals.
“I hear there’s a holiday coming up where all people do is eat turkey, and that’s the kind of holiday I’d love to celebrate,” he says. “I’m a little thin, and chowing down on some turkey in a nice, warm house full of sleepy people would be the best way to spend the day.”
Patton, a young male pit bull mix, was found a stray in Cornelia. You’d think Patton might be a little nervous around humans after being on the streets— but he’s just the opposite.
“I can’t wait to find my home,” Patton says. “I love people, and I am so ready to get to have a family of my very own.”
Patton loves attention, whether that’s listening to you speak, playtime, scratches or cuddles, he can’t wait to be part of it. He says that he’s excited for all those things to be part of his life, and he hopes that day is just around the corner.
“I’ve never known what home is like, having a safe place to go at the end of the day, and it’s going to be so exciting when I have one,” he says. “I’ll be right here at the shelter, waiting for my forever family to pick me up and take me there.”
