Adopt-A-Pet: Hello, new friend!

Who doesn’t love memorable first impressions? When you meet someone and you click immediately, you just know it’s the start of something wonderful. But it’s not just humans that treasure those moments, there are homeless animals awaiting that moment when they know loneliness is behind them.

The Habersham County Animal Shelter has two social butterflies who are waiting to meet the people that will become their fur-ever families, could you be part of it?

Meet Fuzz Aldrin

Fuzz Aldrin may be named after a man who walked on the moon, but what he really wants is to walk into a loving home.

Mr. Aldrin is an adult male cat waiting to find his forever home with a sweet face and an even sweeter purr-sonality. Fuzz loves to make friends, give cuddles, snuggles, kisses and get chin scratches.

“I can’t wait to meet my new family,” Aldrin says. “Having someone to cuddle with all day, someone who can scratch all my favorite spots and that I can keep warm, it sounds so perfect it almost doesn’t seem real!”

But it is real, and it’s something that could be on the way soon. Fuzz Aldrin is available for adoption and is more than ready to be in a home of his own.

“I’d want my future family to know that I can’t wait to snuggle up with them,” he says. “Any human that loves kitties and lazy days is going to love me.”

Meet Maple

Miss Maple is an adult female terrier mix who would be pleased as punch to meet you!

This southern belle is as social as can be and is hoping to trot around with her human to meet new people, pups, and take in all of the south’s natural charms on walks.

“It’d be sweeter than honey to be with a family of my own,” Maple says. “I love to meet new people, and thinking of meeting the person, or the people, that get to be my forever family makes my heart flutter.”

Maple has been waiting patiently to be adopted, coming to the shelter in December and waiting for over a month.

“Patience is a virtue, and I’ve been very patient,” Maple says. “I know waiting is the hardest part, and once the waiting is over, it’ll be the happiest day of my life!”
