We have a special shelter volunteer edition this week. During the holiday season most of us revel in the warmth of our homes with family and friends and that includes pets, if we’re lucky. Many will think of adopting a cute kitten but a more purrfect gift would be an older cat or one that’s been at a shelter way too long. The most precious thing we can give is love. I know many cats who love nothing better than to be home for the holidays.
The New Rochelle Humane Society where I volunteer is offering REDUCED ADOPTION FEES for the entire month of December for any pet staying at the shelter for over 4 months or any pet that is aged 7 years and older.
I’m rooting for Coretta the tuxie queen of the Sunshine Room who was adopted recently but quickly returned. She’s been known to take a swipe at me and others and needs patience to adjust to a new home. All shelter cats are stressed and easily over-stimulated (some more than others) which can easily result in unwanted nips. A gradual introduction period even if there are no other pets in the home is key.
Adoption hours: Open seven days a week: 10am to 4pm; except Thursdays, 2pm to 8pm. Have a question? Call
914.632.2925 or stop by 70 Portman Rd. in New Rochelle, NY. for a tour and speak to one of the adoption counselors.
AND each day in December they will be featuring a different “Lonely Heart” at the New Rochelle Humane Society Facebook page and Website New RochelleHumaneSociety.
As always, sharing is not only caring but that one click could save a life.
