It's official! The North Country SPCA's new shelter is complete and we are proud to announce that we will be opening at our new location on Route 9N, East of Elizabethtown, within the next few weeks. Keep your eyes on our weekly column for updates. The new, state-of-the-art shelter has space for up to 65 cats and 25 dogs, including "cat colony" rooms where up to 10 frisky felines can frolic together, as well as individual "condos" where mother cats can nurse in peace. We are sure our furry friends will welcome their new, larger dwelling spaces with large, glass windows instead of cramped wire cages. We would like to thank all of the community members who, through donations and fundraising efforts, help make this dream a reality!
Our featured pet this week is Twinkle, a beautiful young Domestic Shorthair-mix Tabby who has exquisite markings and huge, emerald eyes. Twinkle and her brother were found as strays, but they must have been someone's beloved pets at one time, as they absolutely love people and cannot get enough attention. Twinkle gets along well with other cats and truly has a "sparkling" personality that will make you smile. She even enjoys the company of a friendly dog or two! If you are looking for a younger cat who still has some kitten in them and promises to truly be a "forever friend," Twinkle is the feline for you. Why not stop by and meet her today?
