Adopt us – Effingham animal shelter

Buzz is a 4-month-old, cross-eyed kitten that’s available for adoption from the Effingham County animal shelter.

“His eyes will melt your heart,” said Amy Hamilton, kennel coordinator. “He’s a sweet little cat. He’s just got a goofy look to him.”

Also up for adoption this week is Emma, a 2-year-old setter-shepherd mix that was surrendered by her owner because she jumped up on his car.

She seems shy and rather traumatized by being left at the shelter.

“She’s afraid, but she warms up quickly,” said Shelter Director Lorna Shelton.

Shelton said she makes eye contact well and would be great at obedience training.

The fee to adopt animals is $50 for dogs and $40 for cats, which includes shots.

People who adopt from the shelter must agree to have them spayed or neutered within 30 days, or be subject to a $200 fine. The shelter follows up to make sure that people abide by the law.
