Despite the occasional dusting of snow, we are now well into Spring, and hopefully we will see some May flowers blossoming soon! Unfortunately, in addition to spring being the time of greening lawns balmier days, it is also the time of year when many new, unwanted litters are born to pets who have not been spayed or neutered. There is no more urgent time for a trip to the veterinarian to ensure your pet will not continue the cycle of unwanted puppies and kittens in need of homes. Each year the NCSPCA is inundated with these adorable, furry faces... in addition to the many adult cats and dogs who are already hoping to find families. Unfortunately, there just aren't enough homes for every one of them. Some of these baby animals will spend their entire "childhood" at the shelter without a home of their own. It's up to each of us to be responsible and to make sure our pets are spayed or neutered.
Our featured pet this week is Tiger Woods, a Tabby Domestic Shorthair/mix cat who has a patch of white on the bottom of his chin that looks as if he dipped into a bowl of milk. Tiger Woods is an example of a cat who arrived at the shelter as a very young kitten, and spent much of his kittenhood here without the opportunity to run and play freely. Tiger Woods arrived at the shelter with his mother and siblings, who have since been adopted. This shy little guy has grown up to be playful and affectionate when he is allowed the time to warm up to you. If you give him the opportunity to get to know you, he will endear himself to you with his sweet, soulful gaze and gentleness. Why not come out to visit him and introduce yourself today?
