Meet Simba! He’s the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pet of the Week!

Simba is a loving and adventurous 8-month-old Cattle Dog mix. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was very shy and fearful. Simba is still nervous in new situations but has been gaining so much confidence in a wonderful foster home! This experienced foster family even took him on a trip and he did great! He met several kids ranging in age from babies to 6-years-old and got to hang out with Mosley (his foster dog older brother) on this adventure. During the Home for the Holidays Adoption Promo Simba’s fees are pay what you can!
