ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Cute snout, tallllll ears, compact bod, and sweet smile! If USPS handled canine delivery, Elly would be the whole package! Elly was surrendered to the shelter with her pal Kita, who has since found her forever home. Elly is watching her tracking ticket eagerly, she’s more than ready for arrival (at her new home) too! Elly has lived with both dogs and cats in the past, and likes adults very much, although she is always sensible, remembering her mom’s advice, and is cautious of strangers at first. Please no kids under 12 years- Elly thinks that they are far too scary to live with. If you’re ready for a new companion, come get Elly home by plane, train, or automobile!
