Adopt a pet: Time to get a springtime buddy

Tropicana is a beautiful gold and white, medium-size female who was left at the dog park and picked up by an animal control officer. Her people never came for her, so she is now available to a lucky family. She is estimated to be about 3 years old and is very calm and sweet, but still playful. To learn more about Tropicana, call 405-216-7615 or meet her at the Edmond Animal Welfare Shelter, 2424 Old Timbers Drive. [PHOTO PROVIDED]
