Calico AIf you think I am pretty you should also come and see my three friends who recently came into animal control. There are two more calicoes like me and a black little miss with white whiskers and white feet. We are all females and some of us are polydactyls, which means we have more than 5 toes. Legend says polydactyls are extra lucky. We are all very pretty, most of us have long hair and we calicoes are the faded kind – soft greys, tans and white. Please come in and see us all. We know you will fall in love with at least one of us. Our docket #’s are 11899 and 11900, at the St. Joseph County Animal Control Shelter located at 652 E. Main St., Centreville, MI. Animal Control is open Monday – Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The first Saturday of each month AC is open for adoptions from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. Their phone number is 269-467-6475. Please visit the Animal Rescue Fund website at to see more adoptable pets. ARF will pay for the spay/neuter of an adopted Pet of the Week, at the Humane Society in Kalamazoo. If the owner wants to go to a local vet, the same amount will be given to that vet. Up-Cycled Pets needs reliable foster homes so some pets can learn more about living in a safe home before adoption. Go to for more information about how to help this group. Last week’s Pet of the Week, Sweet Pea, is still waiting for a new home, too. Come in and see us. Also, a rabies shot is available free of charge through the Kalamazoo Humane Society by contacting Animal Rescue Fund (269-718-3775). There are 10 shots available on a first come, first served basis. No substitutions are available. The Kalamazoo Human Society is the only location for the offer.
