Livingston County Animal Shelter Adoption of the Week: Big Al, Skippy, Tango

It’s raining cats and dogs here at the Livingston County Animal Shelter! Meet a few of our animals ready for adoption.

Big Al and Skippy: These two fellas were surrendered to the shelter together due to the health condition of the previous owner. Big Al (gray and black tabby) and Skippy (orange tabby) are both 11 years old and have lived as indoor/outdoor cats. We would love to see them find a home together but it is not a requirement for adoption.

Tango: This sweet and goofy one-year old boy thinks he is a lap dog, but, in reality, weighs in at 78 pounds. Tango likes to play outside, always finding some limb to carry around and chew on, but will crash for a good nap after some exercise. He is house-trained and enjoys kids, although it is uncertain how he is with cats or other dogs. Tango will need someone who has experience with large dogs. He would benefit greatly from training as he still needs some work with leash walking and getting comfortable with new people. Tango is not crazy about being in a kennel and has loved hanging out in the office with staff.
