Pet of the Week

Mr. Jones 

Mr. Jones and me, tell each other....OK, this handsome guy may not be the topic of a chart topping 90's song, but, we certainly think he's a rock star! With his scruffy coat, big paws, and heart melting big brown eyes, it will be a hard stretch to meet someone who doesn't instantly fall in love with this hunk. Mr. Jones arrived with a song in his heart and a wish to find his forever home. Just spend a little time with him and you'll quickly find yourself singing a happy tune and wanting to take this Irish Wolfhound home! If Mr. Jones sounds like the perfect fit for your home, meet him at our adoption center today or call 859 873 5491 for more information.
