How did you become a scholarship pet? 

I was taken to a Los Angeles County Shelter twice before I was 4 months old because I am really shy (but really active).  When Operation Adopt came to Tennessee they decided that I should come too!

Tell us about yourself?

My ideal home would be one without a lot of activity but where I can also get out for plenty of walks.  I would like a patient family who loves my quirks and will let me return love at my own pace – but I promise I will. I have gotten lots of individual attention and plenty of room to play as a scholarship pet and it has helped so much!  I am still pretty shy, but I’ve learned that being held is quite nice.

How can you meet me?

The very first step is filling out an adoption application.   (Please make sure you get a confirmation that your application has been submitted.)  After your application is received, it’s reviewed and if we may be a match, you’ll be invited to come meet me!

Anything else?

All scholarship pets are spayed/neutered, current on age appropriate vaccinations and microchipped before going to their new home because that’s the responsible way to keep us all safe. Oh and another great thing is that all scholarship pets get 30% off boarding for lifetime at Friendsville Animal Center, LLC.

Is there an adoption fee?

Yes.  While we receive free room and board at Friendsville Animal Center, the adoption fees help to provide food and any medical care we may need during our stay (and pays it forward to other scholarship pets that find their way here).  Here is some information about the adoption fees.
