Say hi to Banjo and Gigi. They are this week’s featured pets.

This week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society include a dog that loves kids and an elderly cat that needs a quiet home.


First up is Banjo, a three-year-old male Pit Bull Terrier mix.


“He is a very sweet boy that loves attention,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He walks very well on a leash and is great with kids.”


Banjo is also house and crate-trained, neutered and microchipped.


“He likes to ride in the car and does good when left alone,” Serena said. “But he is not good with other dogs and needs a secure fence.”

Gigi

Gigi is a 13-year-old female cat.


“Her owner passed away so she came to us,” Serena said. “She is sweet and loves to sit on your lap. She will do best in a quiet home.”


If you would like to meet Banjo, Gigi or the other 63 dogs and 17 cats that need homes, visit the animal shelter at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
