Pets of the week: A playful German Shepherd and a cute little kitten

·2 min read

Jun. 26—Kaiser is an 83-pound German Shepherd who is 9 years old. He found himself at Animal Allies after being transferred from a different shelter. Kaiser is a friendly, playful and outgoing guy. He would love a home where he can get lots of play time before snuggling up at night. His favorite game at the shelter has been keep-away. He loves to be outside, but be aware that when you take him for walks, he might be the one walking you! He can be a talker if he wants attention, so make sure you are ready to listen.

Garcia Bear, like the band Grateful Dead, likes to jam by climbing a cat tree, wrestling with his sisters, or just entertaining himself with toys. He especially likes people because he was a bottle-fed baby after he was orphaned. Garcia Bear is a friendly male kitten with black fuzzy hair and a handsome little white spot on his chest. He'd love to join a home that has a cat already, or bring a sibling when he's adopted. Helping PAWS Pet Rescue, Inc., 715-513-6106,
