Pets of the Week

Staff Reports • Updated Mar 14, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Silver is considered a precious ore. That’s a perfect description of New Leash on Life’s Silver – precious. She came to New Leash on Life with her pup, Nickle, from animal control and can’t wait to find her fur-ever home. Silver is always excited to meet new friends and loves to tell her story to anyone who will listen. Nickle is spayed, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. Come and meet her and talk to the staff about reduced adoption fees, thanks to a grant from the Petco Foundation.  Anyone who wants a dog that will give a lifetime’s worth of snuggles and love, Silver is the girl. All she wants is a chance.  

All New Leash on Life dogs must be adopted to families willing to have their pets be allowed inside – especially at night. No dog is allowed to be put on a “tie out” or chain outside and should be walked on a leash when not in a fenced yard.

Mable is a gorgeous 9-year-old front-declawed longhaired calico that weighs almost 9 pounds. A lot of people don’t like change. When the world kept turning, Mable needed it to stay the same. She has now been through even more changes since having to leave her home, and she would really like a quiet home where she can live. Mable does take a while to adjust and will need someone willing and able to give her the time she needs. She is litter box trained, spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated.  Come meet her and talk to the staff about reduced adoption fees thanks to a grant from the Petco Foundation. Also talk to the staff about our sleepover program with approved application.  

All cats must be indoor only and shall not be declawed.

At Country K-9 Rescue, meet Claudie. She loves water. She was scared when first found, but her foster has worked with Claudie to learn to trust and enjoy human companionship again. Claudie was already spayed, so she had been a pet before. She had her shots updated and is tested leukemia negative now also. She has an obsession with water, and anyone may even find her checking out the bathroom shower right after it has been in use. Claudie is good with the dogs in her foster home. For information on Claudie, contact the foster, Claudia, at 615-423-2724.

Also at Country K-9 Rescue, say hello to Hazel. The golden-eyed beauty is about 3 years old and is a pretty brindle pittie mix. Hazel was rudely put out of a car recently and found her way to the rescue. She was spayed, is current on shots and heartworm negative. She is strong but seems to have good manners with other dogs – she loves people. Although she didn’t enjoy the ride that dumped her out, she does enjoy car rides and does nicely in a car crate. Want to say hello in person? Contact the kennel at 615-444-8011.

One of the goals at Country K-9 Rescue is to reduce unwanted litters by promoting spay and neuter of area cats and dogs. Anyone who needs spay and neuter assistance or information on area programs is welcome to contact Country K-9 Rescue at fixwilson@yahoo.com, or call 877-449-5395 and one of the volunteers will go over available help.

It’s almost kitten season again – a time when many feral or free-roaming cats produce more feral and free-roaming kittens. The litters rarely do well on their own, and if they survive, they just continue to add to the stray pet problem. Anyone who knows of free-roaming cats in need of spay or neuter, call 877-449-5395.  Country K-9 Rescue volunteers can loan traps and arrange spay or neuter.  The problem won’t go away and will only get worse unless there’s help from the people who know of the situations. Help the shelter end the cycle of homeless pets.

At the Mt. Juliet Animal Shelter, Logan is part of a family of wild cats brought to the shelter shortly after their birth. The mom is still shy and scared of human interaction, but the three kittens are quickly adjusting. Logan is about 9 months old. She is the friendliest of the kittens. She loves to have a good back scratch and will beg for treats. Volunteers are so happy she has adjusted because now they can find her a forever home. She is extremely calm and mild mannered but will need someone who understands her hesitancies while she continues to build her trust.

Her adoption fee is only $25. She will need to be spayed before going to a forever home, which is an additional cost.

Call 615-773-5533 to make an appointment or come during open hours Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. to meet this sweet girl.
