ADOPTED! 12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Linus

(WMC-TV) – Have you thought this season about opening up your heart and your home to a sweet animal in need?

This year, we introduce to you "The 12 Strays of Christmas".

Action News 5 is partnering with the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County to share with you 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22. And each pet featured in the "12 Strays of Christmas" comes with a very special adoption fee of just $12.

Meet Linus

Linus is a 12-year-old male tabby cat. He is reserved at first to check and see if you are the real deal, or whether you just pay attention to the cats that come right up and ask for attention. Once you prove yourself, you will have a friend for life.

Linus is cool, calm, and collected. He loves to be pet and held. He is a very sweet cat, looking for a permanent place to calm home.

If you are interested in making Linus the newest member of your family, contact the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County at 901-937-3900.

The $12 adoption fee for Linus includes the following:

  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Age appropriate vaccines
  • De-worming treatments
  • Heartworm testing (dogs only)
  • FIV/Leukemia testing (cats only)
  • Microchip for permanent identification
  • Humane Society ID tag
  • Follow up calls with our Adoption Counselors to make sure your new pet is adjusting well
  • A goodie bag with coupons and some toys
