Fall is starting to appear; you only have to take a look around you to see the beginnings of our beautiful autumn leaf magnificance! There's something wonderful about the crispness in the air, and the smell of leaf piles that will soon begin to appear. For me, Fall is also the time when I begin to appreciate snuggling up with my furry friends. If you don't have a "snuggle-buddy" of your own, you may want to think about finding a fur person to cuddle you through the upcoming winter months.
This week's featured pet is Nyca, known at the shelter as a "big teddy bear." She is undeniably affectionate, adores petting, and loves to have her ears scratched. She doesn't have any preferences for what kind of person she prefers - she will gladly wag her tail for anyone who gives her attention. She's a sweet and sassy girl who knows she is a real "hot dog." Nyca would be a great addition to your household and will give you affection and loyalty in return for a happy home.
If you come to see Nyca, you may also want to stop by some of our long-time residents at the NCSPCA. These pooches are anxious to have their own homes and have a great deal to offer. They're hoping that someone will notice them soon and give them a chance! Princess, a Staffordshire Terrier, was brought to the shelter as part of an animal abuse\Neglect case over a year ago. Virgil is a crusty old beagle mix who is hoping to find a place to retire. Indigo is a hound-mix who loves to play with toys. She is a little anxious of strangers but once she knows you, she will be your friend for life. If you are interested in possibly adopting one of these dogs, but aren't sure if you feel your home will be a match, talk to the shelter staff about fostering these or other dogs who need some TLC - you will be glad you did!
