Pets of the Week
Meet Wiley, a handsome 7-year-old fur man who prefers not to be crated and who is house trained. He is quite the love bug and likes to rub against his favorite person just like a cat. Wiley participates in playgroups running around the yard with his kennel buddies. This 54-pound Alaskan Husky/Hound Mix will play all day if you let him! He is a mellow guy who adores being around his favorite people. Could it be your family? Stop by for a visit today! Orphaned since June 5, 2015, his adoption fee is $100. Call 863-646-7722.
