The NCSPCA is excited to announce our official Grand Opening this Saturday, July 20, from noon to 6 p.m., at our new location, 7700 Route 9N in Elizabethtown. New York State Sen. Betty Little and the North Country SPCA Board and staff will mark the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. The ceremony will be preceded and followed by a day of celebration featuring free adoptions and family-friendly activities. Kids will enjoy face painting, games, story-time and entertainment by Merriloons the Clown. Grown-ups will enjoy browsing goods from local Adirondack vendors, as well as agility and obedience demonstrations from top dog trainers. There will also be fun and games for four-legged members of the family in the brand-new dog play yard and on the SPCA’s new trail system. All events are open to the public. What a great opportunity to visit the new Francis Miller Adoption Center and celebrate!
Our featured pet this week is Cinnamon, a Domestic Shorthair-mix with a thick, orange tabby coat. Cinnamon and his buddy Whiskers were dropped off at a local farm as strays. The farm’s owner took them to the vet, had them neutered, and invited them inside her home. Unfortunately, her dog did not get along well with cats and did not adjust to the newcomers, so she was unable to keep them. These furry buddies are now are here waiting for a place to call their own. Cinnamon is a very large, pleasantly plump fellow with classic tabby markings. He loves to cuddle, and would be a great companion for someone who needs a super lap warmer. Cinnamon gets along great with other cats and is about 5 years old. His companion, Whiskers, has tuxedo markings and is a little shy at first, but will reward you with purrs once he gets to know you. Please stop by and meet these sweet boys!
