Pet of the Week

Frankie is a cat in need of a good home. For more information, contact the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County at 410-778-3648 or

Introducing the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County's Pet of the Week and very own "Heavyweight Champion (of Snuggles)," Frankie. 

Clocking in at 19 pounds, Frankie is easily the chunkiest cat at ACSKC. Staff there is not sure if his previous owner gave him a ton of treats, or if he has a secret affinity for lasagna, but either way he has really packed on the pounds.

The one thing Frankie may like more than food is people. Frankie is all about ear rubs and chin scratches. He would be the “purrfect” companion for Netflix binge-watching, especially the "Great British Baking Show." Frankie would definitely prefer a home where he is the only cat, that way there are more table scraps for him. 

Frankie is really hoping to have a home for the holidays, especially if it’s for Thanksgiving.

Fill out an application at and visit him anytime from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 10720 Augustine Herman Highway outside Chestertown.
