The Animal Shelter Society of Muskingum County is featuring a special feline for their pet of the week.

Lizzy, a short hair domestic cat with a beautiful black coat and green eyes is up for adoption. Shelter workers say that the four- year- old has lived there since February and is ready for a good home.

" She’s a very nice cat as you can see she likes to be held and cuddled and we have a special adoption rate on her just $15. She is sponsored by local attorney, Sherri Ryan, " said Director, Jody Murray.

Lizzy is microchipped , spayed and up to date with shots. If you would like to purchase her or another animal there are a variety of adoption events taking place for pet lovers to attend.

" We have some adoption events with PetSmart Friday evening from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. we’ll have a variety of cats and dogs there and then we have Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m."

Also on Saturday at the south branch of North Valley Bank, the animal shelter will have some pets up for adoption from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Murray encourages everyone to come out and see what they have to offer.
