This week’s Galveston County Animal Resource Center pets of the week are Maple and Ash.

Maple (A022949) is a domestic short hair kitty with a shimmering coat of blue. She has a small white “locket” on her chest and pretty hazel eyes. Maple is a little over 2 years old, spayed and friendly. Maple has been keeping company with her red stuffy buddy, but she would like to get acquainted with a nice family and go home with them.

Ash (A023290) is a Labrador mix, estimated to be between 1 and 2 years old. This boy came to us with his sibling, Dani, who has been adopted. Ash says it’s his turn to find a loving “furever” home. Ash was the shy brother, but he loved to get attention from his two-legged friends. He’s good with other dogs, children and he loves the pool.
