ADOPT A PET: Meet Gertrude

ROME, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a cool purr or a comforting meow adopt a kitten from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a “companion” for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

According to the Rome-Floyd County Humane Society, Gertrude is an adult, female Tortoiseshell/Calico mix. According to the Humane Society, she is a very beautiful and sweet indoor cat. She tested negative for FIV and FeLuk. She is accustomed to dry cat food but she occasionally wants canned foods. Her shots are up-to-date and she is house trained.
