Pets of the Week

Staff Reports • Updated Feb 27, 2018 at 5:00 PM

Anyone looking for the finer things in life? Armani is ready to give the best of the best – love. She is the cutest white-and-brown, mixed bag of sweetness that was born in June. This darling little lady came to New Leash on Life extremely underweight and scared. As she has emerged from her shell, and volunteers can see through her eyes into her heart and know she is looking for that fur-ever family to help her feel safe. 

They’re working on helping her gain weight before they can spay her, but anyone who is interested may come meet Armani at the adoption center and adopt her into a home for $75. She will be spayed, micro-chipped and current on vaccines prior to adoption. 

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 in yard. 

When Sebastian first came to New Leash on Life from a hoarding situation, he was not in the best health. But with the love, care and medical attention he received after coming to the adoption center, he looks great now. Sebastian has a permanent eye ulcer, however, it doesn’t seem to bother his vision, and the vet said surgery wasn’t required. This handsome fellow is a 6-year-old grey-and-white domestic shorthair that weighs a little more than 10 pounds. Because he didn’t get a lot of individual attention at his previous situation, this sweet boy went to a foster home where he learned how to play – a little rough at times – and socialize with other animals. With people, he is like a shadow. He wants to make sure he is close to them no matter where they go. If it’s bedtime, he is all in for a comfy blanket and a warm spot on the bed. He would love to meet anyone and show them how far he has come. Anyone can adopt Sebastian into his or her home for $50. 

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

At Country K-9 Rescue, nothing’s happier than a dog named Biscuit. Just saying the word would make anyone smile. This Biscuit is about 2 ½ years old, a female yellow lab mix with a happy, friendly manner. Biscuit came to Country K-9 Rescue with a litter of puppies. They have adopted, and now it’s Biscuit’s time to find her new family. She is healthy, heartworm negative, current on shots, wormed and will be spayed and micro-chipped before adoption. She gets along well with other dogs and meets everyone with a wagging tail. For more information on this honey biscuit of a dog, contact the kennel at 615-444-8011. 

Also at Country K-9 Rescue, the “E” word – exercise – is one New Year’s resolution that may already be broken. Well, here’s a solution to the resolution – Elle. Elle is a young mountain cur-pit mix about 8 months old. She is an active, happy pup looking for an active, happy adopter. She uses a doggie door at the kennel and keeps her kennel area clean. Elle loves playtime with other dogs and meets people with a wagging tail. A fenced yard and active adopter family would be the perfect fit for this brindle beauty. She is healthy, spayed, current on shots, wormed and micro-chipped. For more information on Elle, 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 or neuter assistance or information on area programs may contact Country K-9 Rescue at [email protected] or 877-449-5395, and a volunteer will go over available help.

Visit countryk9.petfinder.com or find Country K-9 Rescue on Facebook to see other available rescued pets. All pets are fully vetted and healthy, and dogs are micro-chipped. 

And it’s 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 the rescue’s toll free number at 877-449-5395. Volunteers can loan traps and arrange spay or neuter. Anyone in a position to offer a feral or free-roaming cat a barn or outside home with shelter, the rescue also has some healthy, fixed cats that would love to have a job at a place. The problem won’t go away and will only get worse unless the rescue gets help from the people who know of these situations. Please help the volunteers end the cycle of homeless pets.
