Pet of the Week

July 31, 2013 

Meet Pierce! This adorable little guy is only 3 months old and quite the little character. He is sweet and affectionate – but turn him loose with a toy, and he dives into play mode. He is neutered, micro chipped, vaccinated and has tested negative for feline leukemia/aids. This precious ball of purrs would be a great addition to any family. Could yours be the one for him?

You can visit Pierce and his friends at the Columbia Animal Shelter, located at 127 Humane Lane, off Shop Road. For more information, please call (803) 776-7387.

Please remember that all of our pets need loving homes. To view other animals available for adoption, visit
