Suncoast Humane Society’s Pets of the Week...

DOG: This loving and gentle soul is Buddy. He enjoys the simple things in life: a comfy couch, a soft dog bed or maybe even your bed if you would allow it.  He enjoys boat rides where he can feel the wind in his face and going for walks in the park. Buddy knows basic commands and can give you a nice paw shake if you ask him.
CAT: This is Lucky and he is a one of kind!  He is quite vocal when he wants attention, which is often. Lucky is definitely a lap cat, and he enjoys nuzzling his head into yours while being pet. He doesn't mind being brushed and enjoys being held like a baby. All Lucky needs is a friend to call  his own. Will you be the "lucky" one to love him every day?
EARS Is in urgent need of fosters and volunteers!
