PETS OF THE WEEK

MEET MARA AND ALEX at COASTAL PET RESCUE

Each week, we will highlight pets available for adoption from local rescue organizations. In December, we are featuring Coastal Pet Rescue.

Alex

AGE: 10 Months 

COLORS: Male Tabby

WEIGHT: X-Small ( < 10 lbs.)

If you’re looking for an affectionate kitten, Alex could be your guy.

This Pisces kitty (born Feb. 22) started off rather timid and shy, but has really come out of his shell to be quite the little lover! He often rubs your legs, waiting for you to give him pets and head scritches. Which is easy to oblige since he is SUPER soft.

He has become quite playful (the more toys the better) and continues to play with his roommates, often snuggling with one or two of them after sharing a big meal. If you have a kitten around the same age needing a friend, Alex would be a good contender. He has grown up with kitties and would love a friend to pal around with.

When being introduced to his new home, he’ll need a little bit of time, patience and a whole lot of love to get settled in and know that he’s finally found his forever home.

 

Mara

AGE: 10 Years 

COLORS: Black/Brown/White Female Hound Mix

WEIGHT: Large (50 – 75 lbs)

Mara came to us at the age of ~10, so we don’t know what her previous life was like before us. She gets along great with male dogs but can be very selective of the female company she keeps, if any.

While she was in foster, this sweet golden girl learned some new tricks, like sitting politely to wait for dinner. She is a quick learner and very treat (and food) motivated.

She can be somewhat territorial, so she does bark but has gotten much better about it. She walks on the leash—no pulling at all—and is completely house-trained.

She loves people and is happy to snuggle on the couch or just hang out. She isn’t overly energetic and is pretty chill for the most part. She’ll lay on her blanket next to the bed, but also likes to snuggle and lay with you on the couch, or in bed.

And did we mention her smile? She will greet you with a smile and an enthusiastic tail wag.
