Freckles and The Progress Review encourage potential pet owners who are loving and responsible to consider adopting a pet from the Cedar Bend Humane Society.

Meet Chester. Chester is a Rat Terrier who we believe is around 5 years old. His coat may be tri-colored, but his heart is pure gold! Chester can be timid at first, but once he warms up to you, he’s a real sweetheart. He loves to play ball and fetch. Chester can get a bit jumpy and nervous around new people and animals, so we recommend a home without small children for Chester. Here at the shelter, he does well with other animals, but if you have a dog at home already, Chester would like to meet it before going home with you.
