This will be the first of a weekly look at great pets that are up for adoption at the Petsmart Pet Adoption Center in Midland. Our first animal is 'Boomer'.

Boomer is a beautiful male hound dog that was given up for adoption by his family because they had to move into a smaller apartment. He has a sweet disposition and is very at home around children. He loves being around people and is very sad at the moment since he has no home to call his own. He's looking for a good family that will love him and that he can give his love back to.

Today there are millions of lovable, healthy cats & dogs for adoption that desperately need homes. Due to overpopulation, approximately 4 million homeless pets are euthanized every year– that's about 11,000 pets every day. For this reason, PetSmart has chosen not to sell dogs or cats. We joined forces with PetSmart Charities, a nonprofit organization, to help save the lives of pets through adoptions. Many homeless pets are purebred, so if you're looking for a particular breed, or even a puppy or a kitten, our adoption program can help you find your next best friend.

If you are interested in giving 'Boomer' a home, go by the PetSmart Adoption Center off Loop 250 and Midland Dr. in Midland.
