Herkimer County Humane Society

Look at that face and those beautiful ears. It's easy to tell where she gets her name! Batgirl is Cindy's Underdog of the week, and she needs a home of her own.

This sweet girl is at the Herkimer County Humane Society because her owner could no longer care for her due to health issues. She's around 2 years old, gets along with cats and dogs, and is housebroken. Batgirl is in a foster home and is doing very well. She will be at the shelter Thursday through Sunday from 12 till 4. Please share this beautiful girl.  The Herkimer County Humane Society tells us she was very, very loved. and she loves pepperoni.
