Adopt-A-Pet: Meet Shadow and Daisy Duke!

Meet Shadow and Daisy Duke! They're both looking for the perfect family.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — This week's Adopt-A-Pet features two sweet pets looking for their forever families. 

This is Shadow and he's just 1-years-old. Shadow is a medium sized mixed breed who got his name because he loves to follow his favorite people around. He loves broccoli and carrots and loves to please (for a treat of course!)

Then there's Daisy Duke! Daisy Duke is an 11-year-old short-haired black cat. She's been waiting for her fur-ever home since August 2019. She's blind and has been for most of her life but that doesn't stop her.

She loves sleeping in covered beds most of the day but likes to come out when you call her. Once she gets to know you, she'll love to talk!
