Pet of the Week 1/9 – Ryder

Meet Ryder, a 6 year-old domestic shorthair cat and our Animal Friends Pet of the Week!

Ryder came to Animal Friends as part of a Humane Investigations case. When he first arrived, he was very shy, fearful and spent most of his time hiding. He is still learning to be comfortable around new people, but thanks to their staff and volunteer’s continued dedication, he has been making great progress!

Ryder is an incredibly intelligent boy who loves to play with teaser toys – which is a great way to build a bond with him! Ryder is also one of “Yana’s Special Felines”, which means that his requested adoption donation is underwritten, and his new family will receive a starter kit of supplies and other support based on his unique needs.

Our Pet of the Week is brought to you this week by Paw Patrol Live, showing at the Benedum Center on January 21st and 22nd!
