Pet of the Week: Toby

Meet Toby! He is the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pet of the Week!

Toby is a 7 year old male Domestic Shorthair mix who is on the search for his forever home. He ended up at the shelter when his owner passed away earlier this year, it was a hard adjustment for Toby, but he is now in a wonderful foster home who has nothing but positive things to say about him. Toby will let you give him belly rubs, loves to play with toys, and is overall the perfect house guest in their home! He is FIV positive so will need to be an indoor only cat, but many cats with FIV still live a long and normal life! 

All adoptable animals receive the following services prior to adoption:

  • Spay or Neuter
  • Age-appropriate boosters
  • De-wormer
  • Vaccines
  • Microchip

Because Toby is the Pet of the Week, her adoption fees are 50% off (Adoption fees vary by age and animal). Visit the Ark Valley Humane Society’s website to learn more.

The Ark Valley Humane Society is open and available by appointment only, make sure to call 719-395-2737 and schedule an appointment before coming to the shelter! If you or someone you know is in need of pet food, we have community pet food available! Just call us to arrange a contactless pick up!
