ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Gizmo is a handsome, 7 year old Alaskan husky who is looking for a loving retirement home. He is a proven leader in a distance sled dog team and now is starting to feel the miles. Gizmo is still in great shape for a recreational team, he’s just feeling a little stiff these days. He would love to sleep inside where it’s warm if possible, to help him feel young. Gizmo is a little shy at first, but loves attention from friends! He is very playful with other dogs and likes to check in with people, which will be helpful as he learns how to behave indoors. Animal Control News No items found.
