Pet of the Week: Skippy
By West Kentucky Star Staff
METROPOLIS, IL - Hi. My name is Skippy and I’m a 6 year old neutered male Shih Tzu. I came to Project Hope in the winter after my owner could no longer care for me. Unfortunately, I was heartworm positive, but I have recently had my treatment, and I'm in my 30 day recovery period.

I can be a little bit grouchy at times so I need a patient and understanding home. I'd love to have a foster home to spend this time until I'm adopted. I am best suited in a home without children.

For more info on me or on completing an adoption form, please call Project Hope at 618-524-8939, Tuesday-Saturday, 1-5 p.m., or visit in person at 1698 W. 10th St. in Metropolis, Illinois, during the same business hours. You may also request an adoption form by emailing them at .
