Our new shelter has been positively buzzing with activity during the past week. Both long-time shelter resident Mazy and our own mini-panther Dee Dee have been adopted! They are both excited to be celebrating the coming of Spring and warmer weather in their new forever homes. Our Facebook page, facebook.com/NorthCountrySPCA, tells all about their heartwarming adoption stories. If you visit our page, you will also learn about Hooch, a purebred, Dogue de Bourdeaux, who arrived at the shelter recently with a terrible eye infection, so thin that we could nearly count his ribs. This gorgeous and personable pup is swiftly making a full recovery and hopes that his adoption story will be the next you will read on our Facebook page. If you have an adoption story of your own, or other pet-related thoughts you would like to share, please feel free to add your comments to our site!
Our featured pet this week is Leyla, a Dilute Tortoiseshell-mix kitten who was found with her sister, Lea, in an abandoned house where they were left to fend for themselves. These two little beauties were initially very shy and unsure of what to think about our shelter staff, but they have quickly warmed up and love to entertain you with their kittenish antics. They are about 9 weeks old and full of energy and whimsy - they enjoy nothing better than clowning around for an audience! If you are thinking of adding a kitten to your family, Leyla may just be the feline for you - or, better, yet, why not adopt them both and double your fun?
