Oh, Cooper! Just take a look at that face! This darling boy is playful, outgoing, friendly and a true cuddlebug. He loves to meet people while he is going on walks or shopping downtown, or when people stop by and say “Hi!” at his kennel door.
And that’s because Cooper is a beagle, and beagles like nothing better than to follow their noses. So . . . it would be best for Cooper if his new home had a fenced-in yard or if, when he’s outside, he could be on a run. He is the perfect size to fit nicely on everyone’s lap. We love him, and you will too.
Our sweet, shy Stormy is starting to get comfortable here, but she would so like to be in a real home. She has come down from the shelves where she liked to perch when she first arrived here, and she’s even starting to play and chase the cat toys. Play is brand-new to her, and she tends to be very exuberant, so watch out for and understand when she plays a little rough. She loves to have people move a string around so she can chase it, and she’ll let you pat her, just not for very long. She would do best in a home with no small children.
Did you know that you can visit the cats in their cat rooms? They live in these rooms, and they love to get visits when people come in. Each room has toys, scratching posts, blankets and lots of shelves for the cats to sleep on. You can visit all the cat rooms, and you can brush a cat or two if you’re so inclined. We’ll even show you where we keep the cat treats so you can make friends with all the cats. Feel free to stop by and visit with our fantastic felines.
Do you get the newspaper delivered to your door? Don’t know what to do with the plastic sleeve it comes in? Well, you’re in luck, as we’d be very happy to take them off your hands and put them on ours, as they are great for picking up after the dogs when we take them out to do their business. The dogs aren’t fussy, so they don’t care if you drop off yellow ones or green ones—just as long as there aren’t a lot of holes in the bag. Our foyer is always open and you can leave them in there. The dogs and staff at P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center thank you.
It looks as though spring has decided to stay, despite those 6 inches of snow the other day, which were probably just an afterthought. And spring is for getting out in it. Why don’t you think about taking a dog for a walk? They’ve been bottled up in their kennels just as long as you have in your house, and they would simply adore to be out in the free, fresh air. And no one makes a better companion than an eager dog. So if you want to walk a dog or groom a cat, stop by the shelter at 146 Camden St. in Rockport. We’re open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 236-8702 and our website, www.pawsadoption.org, is always open.
Wish List: Peanut butter and durable chew toys like Kongs and Nyla bones.
And thank you, as always, for your caring and support.
