We have three pets worth checking out this week if you are currently interested in adopting a dog or a cat for your home.

This week we are featuring a loving cat, and two dogs, including one that came from Texas a couple of weeks ago. One of these adoptable pets might be the right one for you.

Morgan, the One-Eyed Husky

Huskies are beautiful dogs and Morgan is no exception. He is a 3-year=old male that was part of the group of dogs that recently came to Grand Junction from Texas. Morgan only has one eye because of an old injury.  He's a little slow to warm up, but, once he does, he is very sweet and loves to cuddle and hang out with his humans. Morgan seems to do well with other dogs.

Jon Bone Jovi is Smart and Handsome

Jon Bone Jovi ( I think we call him Jovi for short) is a 2-year-old Australian Shepherd mix who is smart and handsome - just like his namesake. He knows how to sit and shake, and walks well on a leash.  He came to Roice-Hurst from Mesa County Animal Services. Jovi would probably be best as an only dog, but you can always arrange a meet and greet to see if he would get along with your other pets.

Cinders Needs A New Family

Cinders is a 5-year-old loving female cat. Unfortunately, her family had to move and couldn't take her with them. She's a little shy at first but is coming out of her shell more every day. Now, she confidently asks to be petted.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
