GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - WITN's Pet of the Week is Thelma, a 3.5 year old husky mix.
At just 3.5 yeas old, HSEC volunteer Nelson Harrington says Thelma has had four different owners by no fault of her own.
Harrington said on WITN News at Sunrise Wednesday that unprepared college students and a moving situation led to Thelma and her sister, Louise, being surrendered to the shelter multiple times.
Thelma's sister, Louise, has already been adopted and now just Thelma waits for her forever home.
Volunteers say that she "is obviously a looker, but she has a personality to go along with it! Thelma is very energetic and would be great with an active family. She is incredibly loyal when she bonds with you, so it would be best that she is the only fur baby in the home."
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.
The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina is also looking for new fosters right now. Fosters can take cats and dogs in for days or weeks at a time, which helps them get adopted over the long term because the foster parent can get to know them and their personalities and match them with the perfect home.
Volunteers are also needed to help with the off site HSEC cat adoption stands at PetSmart and PetCo. Volunteers work shifts every day the cats are out there.
Anyone looking to volunteer in any capacity can sign up online at HSECarolina.org/volunteer.
