Your pet can be a calendar star
We here at the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) are already thinking about 2011 and are hoping you will want to feature your pet in our new RCHS Pet Calendar.
The new style is a wall calendar featuring a pet of the month along with other options for you to show the world that you have the best pet ever. Our 2011 wall calendar is a great way to honor your current pet(s) or to remember a pet who was special to you.
To learn more about how to participate please contact the RCHS business office at 483-9171 or visit www.rchsvt.org. We hope you will participate and support the work of RCHS.
Five year old. Spayed Female. Labrador Retriever. 66 lbs.
I am a sweet and social girl who loves being with people. I enjoy playing, walking on leash, and I know SIT. I was surrendered to RCHS because of illness in my family and was brought here on June 10. I have lived with another dog before and would probably also be fine with cats and children aged 5 and over. If you visit me you will notice not only how sweet I am and how I lean into you for petting, but also how I have some hair loss on my hindquarters-this may be a food allergy or environmental allergy that you would have to work with a veterinarian to treat.
13 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Dilute Calico. 7 lbs.
I came to the shelter as a stray and no one has come to take me home. Can you believe it? I am a very vocal lady with a lot to say if someone will listen. I am affectionate and am looking for a forever home. My new family will need to make sure that I don't get out and start strolling around the neighborhood and get lost again.
Two year old. Spayed Female. German Shepherd mix. 40 lbs.
I am an energetic, enthusiastic, and smart dog who is eager to please. I LOVE my toys and really hope that my new family likes to shop for me. I hear there are some really good squeaker toys out there. I was surrendered to RCHS because of issues in my adoptive family that had nothing to do with me and I was brought here on June 16.
I do need some obedience training, including leash walking but I already know SIT, DOWN, SHAKE, and FETCH. The staff here walks me with an EZ Walker Harness which really helps. My former family had a 2-year-old visiting grandson and I was very tolerant of the little guy but for my real family I think the kids should be 5 and up because I can get pretty excited when I play. I also need an active family who spends a lot of time outdoors-I'm too smart to just hang around the house.
I am perfectly happy as an only dog and I am choosy about what dogs I get along with, preferably submissive, easy going dogs, so introductions will be very important.
2 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Orange and White. 11 lbs.
I came to the shelter with my sibling Lolly Pop as a stray. As much as we would like to go to a forever home together we understand that it may not be possible. I tend to take long naps in a nice warm spot as the afternoon approaches. If you are looking for someone to talk with, curl up with to watch a little TV or read a book - I am the one for you. Don't be fooled by my laid back disposition I still have a lot of energy so toys are a must in my new home.
