I’M PET OF THE WEEK AND MY ADOPTION FEE 50% OFF THIS WEEK!
Hey, my name is Nena (… it rhymes with Dana….) which means “baby girl” or “sweetheart.” Yeah, I got that sweet thing going on. I love to meet new people! I went to an adoption event at a pet store and they wanted to hire me as their full-time store greeter. I said I would do it, but they would have to pay me in turkey jerky, long walks along the beach, and a nice, thick orthopedic bed. As an older-than-average student of the human condition, I need lots of soft spots to snooze between being petted and told how pretty I am. Here at the shelter, I enjoy going to play yard every morning. I’m known for my head fakes, butt bumps and spin moves. After breakfast and a morning nap, I am ready for walks with my volunteer friends. One of them said, “Nena is perfect, “just yesterday! Not bragging, just letting you know what the word on Verona St is. I would love to be your sweetheart, so hurry down to Rochester Animal Services, 184 Verona Street. A baby girl with this much to offer won’t be here for long <3
THE PLAY YARD
If you would love to adopt a rescue dog, but are hesitant to come into the shelter to see them, you can come to watch a play group at The Play Yard at Rochester Animal Services.
