CARTERVILLE (WSIL) -- If one of your resolutions is to have a new companion this year, we may have the perfect buddy for you in this edition of Pets of the Week.
Bandit is a one-year-old male Pitbull-mix who weighs about 62 pounds and is great with other dogs. Bandit does not care too much about cats but would love to spend his days with kids by his side. He is hoping to have a new home this month. He is neutered and up for adoption at the Humane Society of Southern Illinois in Murphysboro.
Lacey is a cute Tortoiseshell cat who was abandoned and left to fend for herself. She is about 2-years old, and she promises to love her new family forever. You can get to know her at the Perry County Humane Society.
Mother Gothel is a long-haired beauty who is 4-years-old and loves attention. If you have a lot of love and attention to give back to a cat, she's at Finding Forever Animal Rescue in Marion.
Ruby is a precious female dog who sometimes gets a little nervous but warms up after some time. She likes to run and play but gets lonely at night at the Wayne County Humane Society. Her adoption is sponsored, so if you want to give her a chance, call the shelter in Fairfield.
