These furry friends are looking for their forever home.
Pick a Pet: Chief, Penelope and Austin
Chief Chief has the saddest eyes that will melt your heart. Chief is 4 1/2 years old and was previously at a high kill shelter in New York City. He was adopted by someone local to Utica, but unfortunately, their landlord would not allow them to keep Chief, and that’s how he ended up at the shelter. He has already been at the shelter for 10 months and he hates being there. Chief is definitely safe there, but he deserves a loving home to call his own. He has been bounced around and he has gone through a lot. His eyes tell a story. Chief is a big boy, but he is a lovable sweetheart. He loves people and the staff adores him. He has been able to play nicely with some dogs at the shelter, but in reading about his past it seems as though he may not want to share a living space with another dog. Chief will need a home with no cats. Let’s find Chief his forever home. He is neutered, current on vaccines, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $120. Stop in to meet Chief today. Apply here to adopt: www.anitas-sshs.org/adopt/apply/Dog. Anita’s Stevens-Swan Humane Society, 5664 Horatio St., Utica, 315-738-4357, www.anitas-sshs.org.
Penelope Penelope is the longest resident of the cat colony at the Humane Society of Rome. She has been there for five months. She is a sweetheart with a touch of spice. She’s a one year old long haired tiger with a big personality. She would do best in a home where she is the only pet as she pretty much likes to be able to do her own thing. Also, a quiet home with no small children would be best. She needs patience for her affectionate side to shine through. Give her a chance.To visit Penelope, stop by the Humane Society of Rome, 6247 Lamphear Road, call 315-336-7070 or go to www.humanesocietyrome.com.
AUSTIN Austin, 6, can be slow to warm up to new people, but that doesn't mean he doesn’t want to. He loves squeaker toys, and will trot around with them in his mouth. He is still getting the hang of leash walking, but he’s very smart and is learning quickly. He is looking for an active family who wouldn't mind taking him for jogs or hikes. He would also be just as happy with chasing sticks, balls, toys, and even you, around the yard. He will bring lots of love and laughter into your life for many years to come. If you would like to meet her, stop by Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association, 7138 Sutherland Drive, Canastota, or give them a call at 315-697-2796.
