Adoptable Dog of the Week: Kelly is a Real Cutie

She's just one of the pets up for adoption at the county's downtown center.

This week's adoptable dog is Kelly, a black and white Boston Terrier mix who is full of personality.

Kelly, a one-year-old spayed female, is playful and outgoing. Kelly walks well on a leash and loves attention and food. Her girlish figure has earned her the nickname of Tootsie Roll. She has been with Manatee County Animal Services since March 25. You can visit Kelly at the county's downtown adoption center today, during the adoption event. Don't miss today's adoption event where you can get free food and a great companion in Palmetto from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Most dogs and cats are available for a $35 adoption fee. Some animals are available for the $10 license fee. The downtown adoption center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
