Our July pets of the month are sparklers!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
This month our highlighted dogs are two young gentlemen, Ace and Ringo. Ace was born in September 2012 along with six siblings in a field between Mega and the gym. His mom and the puppies were rescued through a joint effort by SAMM and the SPA when the pups were one week old. All of the dogs, except Ace and his sister Pepper, have been adopted.
Although he was the runt of the litter, Ace is now a beautiful, medium-sized black and tan nine month old that loves to play, chase balls, and go for walks. He is very affectionate, friendly, and would be a terrific family pet (as would Pepper)!
Ringo, now six and a half months old, has been in the SPA since March and is growing! He has changed from a skinny, clumsy little guy into a stocky, strong, intelligent and handsome boy, with white fur and orange spots. He adores playing with his cage-mate, Mina, and has a blast running with the other young ones in his playgroup. He also soaks up the love. This is the kind of dog that makes an ideal companion for older kids or adults who are energetic and enjoy physical activity.
Monet and Regina are our featured cats. Monet came to us as a three-week-old kitten accompanied by his littermates and his mom, Maddie. Now, he’s the last of his family still here. He’s a handsome orange and white creamsicle of a boy, adventurous, playful, and loving. About four months old, he believes he’s more mature than any of our other kittens, escaping into the adult area whenever he has a chance, to prove what a big boy he’s become. He still looks pretty small to us, although we know his personality is huge.
Regina was abandoned with her two siblings when they were five-week-old kittens. After much care and nurturing, they all developed into healthy, happy kittens. Now Regina is the only one remaining and we are surprised she’s been overlooked. At four months old, she has beautiful black and white coloring and an equally beautiful personality, both loving and serene.
