Pet of the Week: Rocky

Meet Rocky! He’s the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pets of the Week!

Rocky has been at the Shelter longer than any of our other adoptable cats. Luckily, a wonderful foster home agreed to take him in, so he gets to be out of the kennel while he waits for his family! Rocky is a 4-year-old male domestic shorthair mix. His foster mom says, “He loves to fetch and cuddle his humans, he really loves getting attention from people and even enjoys being brushed!

Would you consider adopting Rocky? AND since he’s our pet of the week, his adoption fees are half off!
