This week’s Galveston County Animal Resource Center pets of the week are PJ and Copper.

PJ (A026045) is a domestic short hair with a black and white coat. He’s about 8 years old and a survivor of life on the streets. His hazel eyes sometimes look sad and hint at many adventures — good and bad.

Being footloose and fancy free was fun for a while — now PJ is looking for a home where he will be safe, have soft beds to nap on and a full food bowl. A toy or two would be appreciated. Come meet PJ and see if he’s the right kitty to be your new companion.

Meet Copper (A025648), a 6-year-old German Shepherd. He entered on Jan. 11 and is still waiting on his “fur-ever” family. He’s heart-worm positive but doesn’t let that slow him down.

He would really love to have all your attention, so a single dog household would be his favorite. I mean, who likes sharing their toys anyway? Can anyone take Copper and give him a new life?

PJ and Copper will be available Tuesday through Saturday for $20 each. Pet of the week adoptions include spay or neuter, rabies vaccination and microchip.
