In last week’s column, we talked about a number of pets that arrived at the shelter owing to violent events in the lives of their entrepreneurs. This 7 days I have great information to share.
If you remember, I outlined that three of the puppies had been coming in as a result of significant damage to their operator in a domestic violence case. All three have been positioned in new residences in just a couple of times.
Of the other 3 puppies whose lives have been upended by gun violence, a person was taken in by a family member and one particular went to a single of our rescue associates, where by she will undergo wanted eye surgical procedures and be rehomed right after her recovery.
“Garth” is the remaining target of situations. He still wants a house. He is sweet and handsome as the working day is lengthy. We’re hoping that his charm and very good appears will steal someone’s heart really soon.
On another bright note, the shelter adopted out 160 animals in July! Together with our normal cats and canines, we rehomed guinea pigs, guinea hens, parakeets, lovebirds, rabbits, chickens, ducks and turkeys. We’ve had fairly a assorted inhabitants go through our doors this summer time.
On the other aspect of that tale, the shelter took in just about 400 animals in July, so unnecessary to say, we are however in desperate need of residences for our pets. The moment an animal goes out the door it would seem like two more appear in.
Correct now, we have about 350 cats and canines searching for a household of their possess, unfortunately, August and September are generally peaceful months for adoptions.
Smaller puppies and puppies have been traveling out of below, sometimes they are adopted within hours of likely up for adoption. We have also experienced terrific accomplishment with kittens this 12 months, both by adoption or transfers to other shelters and rescue teams.
But then, there are animals like ‘Hufflepuff”, a pet that has been listed here for 150 times, and Downy, a saucy young tabby cat who just lately marked her 100th working day as our visitor. They are both equally sort of basic, no exclusive markings or coloring that may well make them stand out from the group. It is rough looking at them get handed more than time and all over again.
It would be great to depart from the norm and be equipped to boast major adoption quantities in August. If you’re open up to introducing a new 4-legged member to the household, be sure to appear by or examine out our adoptable animals on line at sjras.org.
