September 27, 2014:  Pet of the Week: BettyDeb Kern, Humane Society of Huron Valley, along with Dean Erskine – Sweet, mellow Betty came to us when her person passed away and no one else in the family could take care of her. Betty misses her former guardian very much. It’s hard for an older gal to find another human to love and be loved by. She was not at all comfortable at HSHV, so she has been living in one of our wonderful foster homes since February. It’s high time Betty found her forever home. She needs a gentle person to match her gentle personality. No young children, please. Betty’s foster mom reports: “Betty likes to steal my seat on the couch when I’m not looking. I’ll go get a snack in the kitchen, and when I come back a minute later, she’ll be sprawled out in my spot, looking innocent. Betty’s favorite things are getting petted in the morning and playing with peacock feathers (other types of feathers just won’t do!).” Betty is doing exceptionally well in foster and has not only found confidence in a quiet home but is also learning to be a bit of an imp. Listen to this week’s interview at the link below for more info about Betty and other animals waiting for their forever homes who are available from the Humane Society of Huron Valley.
