This week’s Zack and Jim’s Pet of the Week is Alyah!
Alyah is not a finicky dog, but this lovely, affectionate girl can’t wait to bid her kennel abode so long and move into a home of her own.
This gentle beauty is looking forward to leaving the shelter to live an easier life. She dreams of spending the upcoming cooler nights as a couch potato, binge watching whatever happens to be trending on Netflix.
It shouldn’t be too difficult for someone to grant her wish.
Alyah adores everyone she meets and has potential to become a true Velcro dog. She would love to curl up next to her person, and she won’t complain if they wants to scratch her head or rub her belly.
Now, Alyah isn’t all about the sofa. No, she doesn’t mind going outside for a while, and she’s cool with taking leisurely, fall stroll.
Alyah has been at the shelter since 9/11/18, and she is second on the urgent list. Besides the Waco shelter housing dozens of fantastic dogs needing homes, Alyah has been overlooked because she’s quiet and calm in her kennel. Her darker color also camouflages, and prospective adopters walk past without noticing her.
It’s time to change Alyah’s circumstances and introduce this cutie with an adorable cocked ear to Waco. Alyah is a 4-year-old, female, Catahoula mix. She’s small to medium size, weighing about 45 lbs. Her adoption fee is sponsored, making her free to adopt to an approved adopter.
Alyah and her fellow shelter dogs need your help today. Last week, the Waco shelter began their Monday with 159 dogs. They ended the week seizing 13 dogs from a hoarding situation. By yesterday morning they had added 24 more dogs than the Monday before, plus they took in an additional 30 intakes last night.
Needless to say the Waco shelter is overflowing with amazing dogs who need homes ASAP! Choices are endless. The Humane Society of Central Texas and the City of Waco shelter is pleading with the community, asking everyone to drop by and adopt or foster
You can find dogs in every shape, size, color and age. If you’re wanting a bubbly and fun personality, or prefer a calm and reserved demeaner, both are available as is everything in between.
Take a drive to 2032 Circle Rd. and meet your new best friend! Alyah is waiting for you!
