Pets of the Week: Sylvester loves attention. Diablo is a happy soul

JACKSON, MI — The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, has many pets available for adoption.

Here are two.

Sylvester is a tuxedo cat, mostly black with white markings. He is 5 years old and has a medium length coat.

Sylvester arrived as a wanderer who was sickly, but he is better now and is looking for a forever home. When you open the door to his cage, he is there to welcome you. He loves attention and has an excellent purr motor.

Diablo is a 2 year old black and white stray who may be a Retriever, Pointer or American Staffordshire mix. Diablo is a happy soul with a lot of personality.

Diablo is a friendly guy and gets along with almost everyone except cats. He likes to play catch, go for walks and spend time with his human. He is attentive and wants to please.

An encounter with a dog is mandatory. A guided chat room tour is available to test the reaction. The dog adoption fee is $150 for medium and large dogs and $250 for puppies and small dogs, which includes vaccinations, microchipping and neutering.

Cat adoption fees are $60 for one cat, $80 for two, which includes applicable tests, vaccines, and neutering.
