Whether you have a question about your pup's bad behavior or how to treat hairballs in cats, the Internet has some valuable resources to provide answers to everyday pet concerns. While these resources are no substitute for a trip to the veterinarian, they are full of helpful information, and certainly worth a look. The NCSPCA recommends the following websites:The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals -http://aspca.org; The Humane Society of the United States - www.hsus.org; Best Friends Animal Society - http://bestfriends.org/; and Petfinders - http://www.petfinder.com/index.html. Petfinders works with the NCSPCA, as well as other animal shelters, to provide an updated listing of animals for adoption. You can visit Petfinders at any time to learn more about our animals!
Our featured pet this week is Scooter, a baby Bluetick Coonhound/mix who loves to give puppy kisses. He has a brown and black face with a white stripe down the middle of his nose, and brown sprinkles on his muzzle that look as if he has freckles! Scooter is an extraverted fellow who wants to meet and greet everyone he passes on his walk, regardless of their age. He enjoys the company everyone - including other dogs. His behavior on a leash is exemplary, and he is gentle enough that a child can easily take him for a walk. If you are looking for a puppy who is not too hyper, Scooter is the pup for you.
You can visit Scooter, as well as our many other pets seeking forever homes, at our facilities on 23 Lakeshore Avenue in Westport. We are open Tuesday through Friday, noon - 4 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Sundays by appointment. Feel free to stop by and make a new friend!
