(KGTV) — Say hello to our Pets of the Week: Nefertiti and Pecan

Nefertiti and Pecan:
These two kitties are both very sweet girls but very different.

Nefertiti is a long hair diluted calico who absolutely loves people and purrs nonstop and is happy getting pets all day long. She’s 6 years old.

Pecan is an adorable 12-month-old girl who also looks fantastic in her tuxedo coloring. She likes to take her time meeting new friends but has the most gentle demeanor.

Can't decide, adopt them both with the Helen Woodward Animal Center BOGO deal: when you adopt one feline the adoption fee for the second will be waived!

Lolli and Pop are two sweet kitties looking to brighten your life! Both Lolli and Pop are 6-month-old domestic short hair blends. Lolli is more of the observer of the two. She likes to sit back, relax and enjoy life’s simple pleasures, like a comfy bed. Meanwhile, Pop lives true to his name. He’s an enthusiastic boy with a heart of gold. They both weigh about 7 lbs. and while they don’t have to go to a forever home together, they sure do enjoy each other’s company.

Their adoption fee is $119 each but right now, when you adopt two felines, the second adoption fee is waived.

Radar #687886
- American Pit Bull Terrier
- Male
- 3 years old
- 52.3 lbs
- Adoption Fee: $0

Radar is a lively dog with love on the brain! This sweet face was flown all the way from Louisiana to avoid Hurricane Laura! It didn't take long for us to learn that Radar LOVES tennis balls. He spends most of his day carrying one around in his mouth, and so far we haven't seen him miss a catch! Like many dogs from the nation's humid southern states, Radar is positive for heartworms. During his treatment, it's important that he doesn't engage in strenuous exercise. Radar isn't able to chase after the ball the way he would like to, but he still enjoys a mellow game of toss and catch! He's a sweet affectionate guy who is looking for a human to cuddle, explore and play toss with.

- Adoption Fee: $100

This pretty little thing is looking for a gentle human to call her own.
