(WFRV) – Shaina from the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Green Bay campus visited Local 5 Live with details on Barkin’ Beer Fest that benefits thousands of homeless pets in the area and we meet Lucy, a sweet, shy kitty looking for her forever home.

LUCY:

This shy but sweet feline is 13 years old. She likes quiet days and a secluded spot to call her own. Once she’s comfortable, Lucy will happily sit with you and enjoy some chin scratches. When she’s feeling playful, Lucy loves wand toys and watching birds on TV. Due to her shy nature, Lucy would be happiest in a home with children over 8 years old and will need to be slowly introduced to any other resident animals. Like all cats at WHS, she is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped, plus you get to name your own adoption fee! Her adopter will also receive a certificate for a free vet exam. She is currently staying in a foster home and looks forward to meeting you! To schedule a meeting, email her foster family directly at foster4dc@yahoo.com. To view all the animals currently available at the Wisconsin Humane Society, please visit www.wihumane.org/adopt.
