OUTER BANKS SPCA PET OF THE WEEK is GANDALF!
$25 OFF HIS ADOPTION FEE IS SPONSORED!
Gandalf needs YOU to make his dreams come true! He was found as a shy stray in Kill Devil Hills and was thought to have been on his own for awhile. He enjoys the company of his human friends and loves to have his head scratched and belly rubbed. He would do best in a home as the only pet, and would love to be your indoor/outdoor cat companion. He is approximately five years old, and is neutered, micro-chipped, and updated on all vaccinations. Gandalf was diagnosed as having skin cancer, which is certainly not contagious and has yet to affect his overall health in any way. He did test negative for FIV/FELV, and is otherwise very healthy and active. Gandalf is sponsored for half of his adoption fee. All that is missing is a family in which to call his very own. Could it possibly be you? Stop by the shelter today to meet this special boy, or please call 252-475-5620 for more information!
