Janesville Gazette Pet of the Week

Twice a month, The Janesville Gazette features some of our adoptable pets as well as a spotlighted Pet of the Week. Our latest featured Pet of the Week is Yella Fella!

Hello, my name is Yella Fella! My beautifully long "yellow" coat is temporarily short. I came to the shelter with severe matting and had to be shaved so it can grow back healthy! I'm looking for patience in a human companion. I may be an introvert, but once I become more comfortable, I'll open right up! Lots of people around here say I'm shy and it's true, I prefer some space. Do I sound like a good fit? Stop by the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin and meet with me!
