Gimme Shelter (1/6/16)

He also gets along well with other animals and children. During the month of January, Orange County Animal Services is reducing all pet adoption fees to $20.16 in celebration of the New Year. Stop by the shelter at 2769 Conroy Road (or visit online at if you're interested in Bear or one of the many other dogs or cats waiting for a home.
