Bingo

  • Breed: Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix
  • Age: 6 years
  • Color: Black/White
  • Sex: Male

Bingo was surrendered to us after his owner passed away, leaving him a little unsure of the world. He’s a dog that desperately misses the comforts of a home, and has not acclimated to the loud and chaotic shelter environment, as many dogs don’t. He’s described as a “big baby” when he shakes in his kennel, until we leash him up for a walk, and his personality comes out! Then we see his happy, wagging tail and adorable antics. Despite his intimidating size and appearance, he would be the first dog in the shelter to come snuggle up next to you. Because of his uncertainty of the world after such big changes in his life, Bingo would thrive as an only dog! However, he does well with some other pups, but prefers females and more submissive/calm dogs. Bingo has been cat friendly here, and mostly chooses to ignore felines completely. Bingo would be fine with children 12 and older, but does not like children or adults that move quickly to take toys or food away from him. He can be protective over his things when he feels uncomfortable, but once he trusts you, his walls come down and he doesn’t feel the need to defend his possessions. Bingo is just a dog that needs the comfort of a home, a fluffy bed, and a new forever human to feel safe again! Submit your application today at catawbahumane.org. If Bingo can find his furever family by close of business on Saturday his adoption fee will be waived, thanks to our sponsor The Natural Dog (Hickory).

Halo

  • Breed: Domestic Medium Hair
  • Age: 1 year
  • Color: Tabby
  • Sex: Female

When you visit the cat room, the first thing you’ll hear us say is “watch out for Halo!” This simply means, Halo WILL be all over you, begging for attention – and might even try and leave with you! Halo is a cat that’s absolutely hilarious to watch. She’s full of fun energy, chasing laser pointers and toy mice around the cat room, sprinting from one side to the other and taking advantage of her time out. But after a good romp, Halo is content to perch on your shoulder, lay on your chest, or be anywhere close to you for affection. She’s one of the most personable cats, and when we say “watch out for Halo,” we also mean she might end up trying to use your pants as a ladder until she can make it up to your arms to be held or your shoulder for a sit. She is also unique, as she only has one eye – simply a birth defect or injury early on in life that doesn’t slow her down one bit. Halo is not only sweet with people, but does great with other cats, dogs, and even older kids (who won’t be too alarmed by her over-affections). All around, Halo is an amazingly sweet cat and we aren’t sure while she’s still searching for her forever home. Submit your application today at catawbahumane.org. If Halo can find her furever family by close of business on Saturday her adoption fee will be waived, thanks to our sponsor The Natural Dog (Hickory).
