  • Jasmine is Pet of the Week

    Jasmine is a 2-year-old Rat Terrier mix that is looking for a new home.

    She will need a little help with housebreaking, but she is a fast learner and will make a great pet for anyone looking for a pet to curl up with on the couch.  She may not do well with small children as she does not care for being grabbed at or her face being touched too much. Jasmine is spayed and current on all of her shots, this makes her adoption fee only $25.
