Bladen Online’s Pet of the Week is Akira, a 1- to 2-year-old female Domestic Short Hair.
She is very friendly, but can be shy at times. She needs a family that will give her the extra tender loving care that she deserves, says Shelter Manager Karen Suggs.
Akira has been looking for a special someone to give her a loving home. Could it be you?
