Looking for a new pet? Check out Nashville’s News 2’s “Pet of the Week” segment every Tuesday on News 2 This Morning. Below are this week’s featured pets:

ID: A125488
Name: Donald
Breed: pitbull mix
Gender: Neutered male
Age: 2 yrs

I am Donald and I’m running for the greatest job in the United States — head pet of your household. My platform includes making sure you get plenty of exercise by going on a daily run. I love everybody and take great interest in other dogs. I’m a strong candidate so anyone interested in joining my party had better hold on tight to the leash.If elected, I promise to work on training and household manners. I’m definitely up for the job; if you could come to a rally at MACC to meet me and shake my paw, I think I would win your vote. In the interest of full disclosure, I do have heartworms, but the nice folks here are giving me my meds; a MACC adoption counselor can give you all the information you need to help me defeat this enemy and get me 100% ready to serve. I am Donald, and I approve this message.

ID: A122928
Name: Cy
Breed: pitbull mix
Gender: Neutered male
Age: 2 yrs

Hey y’all my name is Cy. I have been at the shelter for over 120 days now. I would really like to find a family soon and learn what it is like to have forever family. I am a really sweet guy and enjoy lazing around or playing in the yard. My favorite toy would have to be anything with a squeaker in it. I just can’t figure out where the noise comes from but man is it fun to try and figure it out. After I finish playing with toys I like to sit next to volunteers and enjoy a good pet and cuddle session. If you would like to add an incredible new addition to your family come on down to the shelter and meet me soon. The shelter staff wants me to find a home so they have waived my adoption fee to any great family willing to give me the love I deserve.

ID: A125915
Name: Lily Ann
Breed: Basenji
Gender: Spayed female
Age: 6 yrs

My name is Lily Ann, and I’m six years old. I’m a Basenji; you may have heard that Basenji’s don’t bark, but I’m here to tell you that that is not always true. I can be quite vocal so I’m probably not suited to apartment living; the neighbors may have something to say about that. But I am very suited to be around people and dogs, although it would be a good idea for me to meet any dog(s) you may already have just to be sure. Cats? Unless they enjoy a good game of “chase,” we probably would not get along. My ideal family would be very active; I have a lot of energy and love to play but I’m crate-trained and I understand humans have to do things like go to work and other places we dogs can’t always go. I’m very friendly but also protective of my people; hey, I know who feeds and takes care of me! Let’s get together and see if we can be friends.

ID: A125626
Name: Kimba
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Gender: Neutered male
Age: 4 yrs.

Kimba came into the shelter with a terrible case of ear mites.  The shelter staff took great care of me and now I’m ear mite free.   He is careful about making new friends but once he settles in this guy loves to have your attention. He will make a great companion for someone who is looking for a quiet, handsome buddy.

ID: A125884
Name: Cali
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Gender: Spayed female
Age: 6 mos.

Hi! I’m Cali and I’m one of the sweetest cats you’ll ever meet! I’m only 6 months old and full of kitten energy! I enjoy spending my days playing with my toys, exploring, and looking out the windows. I would do well with other cats in the home as I have lived with them before. If you would like to adopt a pretty calico like myself come on down to the shelter and meet me today!


Anyone interested in adopting one of these pets is urged to contact Metro Animal Care and Control at 615-862-7928.
