You can call our Hancock County SPCA "Pet Of The Week" by many names, just as long as you don't call him late for dinner. Even better, he'd love it if you called him yours, as he wants nothing more than to go home with you!

Mariah Donovan, Communications Coordinator at the Hancock County SPCA, says this handsome boy isn't just a pretty face, but a great laid-back personality, too,

"The camera loves this fella, and you should too! You can call him Dolche AKA Night Rider AKA Dolche Nightrider. He’s a man of many names. This lazy, loveable guy likes to lounge, chill, and relax in all of his spare time. You can either find him hanging out on a window sill or napping really well in a cozy space."

Donavan says Dolche gets on very well with other furry friends but does take a minute to warm up to humans. But once he trusts you, well, then any apprehension he may have had becomes a thing of the past.

"He spends his shelter days in the community room and gets along fine with other kitties. We’ve even caught him snuggled up and napping with some of his companions! He is still skittish around people but when he trusts you, he loves to be loved! Dolche would prefer a slower introduction where he’s given the time and space to warm up to you. Once you gain his trust, he will be your best companion. Come meet Dolche at the SPCA of Hancock County Wednesday - Saturday from 12 to 4!"
