AWL pet of the week
Rose the rabbit came to us pregnant. She did a wonderful job raising her babies so they could be adopted. Now that Rose has been spayed, she too is ready to be adopted. Rose is a sweet bunny who always uses her litter box, so cleaning her cage daily is a breeze. -- The Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County is located at 3519 Drance St., Port Charlotte. The shelter is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. To view adoptable pets, visit www.awlshelter.org. All animals are microchipped, spayed or neutered and are current with their shots prior to adoption, including rabies.
