TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) --  Meet our Pet of the Week, Batman!

This year-old whippet mix came to the shelter as a stray in April, and he quickly became a staff favorite!

Batman is great with dogs and loves to play, even if he's a bit shy at first.

Batman is heartworm positive, but volunteers at the shelter donated $150 toward his treatment, plus there's financial help available through the Animal Shelter Foundation. He's already been neutered.

You can catch our Pet of the Week every Tuesday morning at 6:30 on WTXL Sunrise.

This weekend also marks the "Furassic Park" event, where all adoption fees are waived. That's Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. For more information, check out the Tallahassee Animal Service Center on Facebook.
