Marion County Animal Services offers Pets of the Week

Marion County Animal Services has a wide variety of dogs in search of their new forever homes.

Wiggles, Dulce and Fenway are available for adoption at Marion County Animal Services.

The three that have been selected as the newest Pets of the Week are:

  • Wiggles (A231699) is a mixed breed that is 21 months old. She likes to explore and wants to see the world with a free-spirited best friend by her side. Her willingness to try new things, like taking a dip in the pool, would make for a great traveling companion.
  • Dulce (A238530) is a one-year-old Chocolate Lab mix. You’ve got to see this handsome boy’s face in-person. His striking eyes and his confident personality will win anyone over in mere minutes. Dulce is very affectionate and would make a great friend!
  • Fenway (A241153) is a 1½ year old female mixed breed. She is very calm and would pair well with most families. We can envision her being front and center in someone’s family photos for years to come. Don’t miss out on this gem!

Contact Marion County Animal Services at (352) 671-8700 for more information or visit the shelter Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. or Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. See all the potential pets available for adoption by clicking HERE.
