Pets of the Week June 11, 2012

His name is Canyon and the depth of his Dachshund appeal defies description — the gleam of his black and brown coat is rivaled only by the playful gleam in his eye, and when he runs to you his jubilant spirit reaches you even before his beautifully-built young body. Canyon was turned in by his owner; we don’t know why; at 2 1/2 years-young he’s amiable, outgoing, energetic and responsive; he loves other dogs, adores children and will gaze into your eyes dreamily when you hold him like a baby, only to smile and strut his glorious stuff when you put him down. Canyon’s currently a model citizen at our Camp Good Dog; radiantly happy amidst a noisy crowd of kids and canines, eager to learn and cooperate. He enjoys a leash, is working on his housetraining, and is destined to become your perfectly darling family dog. He’s already neutered and ready to go home. Come hold Canyon close to you today and hear his boyish heart echo in response; “I’ll love you forever,” it will say, “Ever, ever, ever, ever.”

She comes at a run when you call her name — alert, affectionate, and as supremely attentive to your needs as she was to her carefully-raised kittens’. But then being the consummate homemaker comes naturally to our immaculate 4-year-old “Kat;” when she’s in the mood to redecorate she’ll even drag her immense water bowl across her cage, without spilling a single drop. For all her efficiency there’s nothing cold about her — Kat knows that a good friend needs a nice warm head butt every few seconds and she dispenses them generously. Kat was found stray and now takes nothing for granted; her life’s work is to make you feel loved and she succeeds in fine fashion, a forever-small black and white advocate who will dote on you and your kids with endless fascination. Kat has no use for dogs and cares little for other cats, her box is neater than a pin, she’s happy both inside and out and she’s ready to become the backbone of your family, as long as you’re willing to receive her fervent Kat caresses. Come see how much fun a vibrant purr backed by unconditional devotion can be.

Their purpose is to give sanctuary to abandoned, abused, and neglected animals, provide education to the public on responsible and humane pet ownership, encourage the public to spay and neuter their pets by providing low cost surgery, and encourage adoptions of those animals placed in their care.

Their adoption center is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm est.
