Pluto, dog with adorable ears and personality, needs a great home
Pluto is 2 years old and he’s been at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control’s shelter since early March, more than 140 days.
His sweet and playful nature coupled with this adorable, floppy ears, make him memorable. He’s considered a “staff favorite.”
“I would say he would be the best summer adventure buddy,” Melanie Perazzo said.
Pluto’s ears flop from side to side.
“He loves the water, he loves playing fetch,” Perazzo said.
Pluto loves dogs and people. His personality blossoms when you spend a few minutes with him.
Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control is overcrowded and there's a great need for adoptions. If you can't adopt, you can consider fostering a pet, or donating items that will make the pets more comfortable through the shelter's Amazon Wish List.
Currently, the shelter is offering a number of incentives to families who adopt. Adoptions, microchips, vaccines and tags are at a greatly reduced fee.
PBCACC said each adoption will ensure the pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have county license tags. Adopters also receive a free Health Care Certificate that offers a free exam for their pet from participating veterinarians, with a savings up to $500, and a bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food.
Look through the adoptable pets online here. The foster and adoption application is completed in person, no appointment is needed.
