Featured Pet: Lydia

Today’s pet of the week is big and beautiful! Lydia may be a big girl at nearly 100lbs, but don't let her size scare you! She's had a rough start to life, so she's actually the big scaredy-cat and prefers to take things slow when meeting new people. She has gotten along with senior dogs in the past, but she'd definitely prefer to be your only baby--furry or otherwise!

Being in the shelter is a really stressful environment for Lydia, so she'd love to get out of her kennel and find a quiet home to call her own. She's hoping with a loving owner who will let her settle in at her own pace, help her feel safe, and build up her confidence! If you'd like to adopt Lydia, visit
