Micky and Miles are bonded brothers looking for new home

Published Sep 10, 2017 at 9:00am

Hello Winston:

We are Micky and Miles, and we are at the shelter because we were owner surrendered. We are a very close and bonded pair of 3-month-old brothers. We do everything together — eat, sleep and play! 

We are mellow and a bit shy at first until we get to know someone. We would love to be adopted together — we’ve noticed in your column that there are many big hearted people out there who do adopt siblings or those who just cannot be separated, so we are hoping there’s a chance for us as well!

Thank you for giving us a chance to share the spotlight and thank you a thousand times over, for all that you do for the shelter animals. You are the best!

Sincerely, Micky and Miles 

Dear Micky and Miles:

Yes, it seems lately there have been a lot of ‘double adoptions’ at the shelter so here’s hoping we can add one more set to the list. Good luck guys!

Your friend,
