Thinking of an Easter bunny for someone you know this Easter? Think twice! Rabbits are too often acquired on a whim and end up surrendered to shelters nation-wide; they are the third most surrendered pet to North American shelters. If you want more information on rabbits as pets, visit us or log onto http://www.rabbit.org to get the information you need to make an informed decision. The WHS saw a 56% increase in the number of rabbits admitted between 2003 to 2007! If you’re unsure about being able to commit to a living creature who can live up to 10 years, this year say Make Mine Chocolate™!
Macho is an incredible cat who was found stray on Church Avenue in November- for some reason, this handsome fellow keeps getting passed over for adoption. Macho is about 3 years old, very friendly and sociable as most Tom cats are and when he purrs has a very loud ‘motor’! This big guy is negative for FIV and FeLV, blood diseases cats can get from going outdoors. Macho is a staff favorite and a hit with the teens at our Roots & Shoots educational program- he will make a great addition to almost any family. Adopt as a longtimer for $39.50!
Bo is a complete sweetheart who simply doesn’t fare well in the hectic shelter environment- this boy is used to the comforts of home & family! Bo, a Flat Coated Retriever mix, is one of those really smart and sensitive dogs we receive all-too-often who become stressed and anxious here. He needs to be adopted soon for his own mental health. When out of his kennel/room, Bo is a very low-key, laid back and well mannered doggy who has great manners and listens well- does he sound like someone you’re looking for? As he can be a timid boy, we suggest he’s best for kids 12yrs+; we know he’ll make a terrific companion for his new family.
