Pets of the Week-
Dog – Jay Z
My name is Jay-Z, and I am on a nationwide search for my Beyonce! My two favorite things in life are humans and playing! My favorite place to go at WCAC is the play yard where I run around like a mad man chasing frisbees! When I am done, I become a big lap dog and drape myself over you for hugs and kisses! If you adopt me, I might even rap a few sick beats for you.
Cat – Honey Bear (above)
My name is Honey Bear, and I am a big ol’ lump of love looking for a honey of my own. My favorite thing to do is to take naps in the sunshine! I am a pretty chill dude, looking for someone who wouldn’t mind a couch companion and giving me a few chin scratches now and then! I am 12 years old, and I do well with other cats, children, and dogs!
