Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

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 Cinnamon!

Update: Cinnamon has found his forever home! 

If you're looking to add some flavor to your life, why not try some Cinnamon? Just a pinch is the perfect amount. Cinnamon is pretty independent for the most part and will not be overwhelming.  He likes to sniff around, do his business and relax in the sun. He will let you know when he wants pet though! Cinnamon LOVES butt scratches and will cry a little if you stop even for a second! Would you like to meet Cinnamon? Call The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin at 608-752-5622 to schedule your meet and greet!
