PET OF THE WEEK: Mercedes

Mercedes is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina.

Mercedes is an extremely loving, super sweet 7 year old Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix.

She is very snuggly, outgoing and enjoys spending time with everyone she meets.

Mercedes came to HSEC with her housemate, Zyon, and although they love hanging out together, they are able to be adopted separately.

Thanks to a generous grant, Mercedes adoption fee has been waived for the Senior for Seniors program.

If you're a senior citizen age 60 or above, you can adopt a senior animal and have their adoption fee waived.

The adoption center is open Friday - Sunday from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. You can also visit the society's website, www.hsecarolina.org.

The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina brings adoptable animals every Wednesday at 6:25 a.m. on WITN News at Sunrise.
