Meet Newt, today's Pet of the Week from Tri-County Humane Society.

Newt is a neutered four year old mixed breed puppers. He can be shy but will warm up after treats (and he's not very picky about treats). Newt is very snuggly and loves to be around his people. He's friendly with other dogs, but it's not known how he is with cats or small children. Per usual protocol, slow and proper introductions to new family members is recommended.

Book Buddies Reading Program

Pets love to be read to. If you have a kiddo (age 5-15 years preferred) in your household who would LOVE to read to a shelter resident, then the Book Buddies program is for you (them)! Pets don't care about mispronounced words, and it's beneficial for both the kiddo (who gets practice reading aloud) and the resident, as shelter life can be stressful.

Everyday items that our pets love more than their expensive toys

We spend a fortune on brand new toys for our pets. Chances are that they will completely destroy those at some point. But before that destruction happens, there are some normal, everyday items that we have in our homes that our pets would rather play with. The best thing...these "toys" are usually way less expensive.
