Briggs - North Country SPCA
The new Francis Miller Shelter at 7700 Route 9N in Elizabethtown is up and running! Visit our Facebook page to see photos of moving day and the smiling faces and wagging tails of our many happy residents. You can almost hear the purring from the cats settling into their new plush bedding. We are currently only open by appointment as our animals settle into their new "digs", but plan to be open again for regular hours in the near future. If you are interested in adopting, please call our new phone number, 873-5000. We would like to express our gratitude to all the generous donors and community members whose efforts made our dream a reality.
Our featured pet this week is Briggs, a Great Pyrenees/Spaniel Mix who arrived at the shelter after his owner passed away. He has a thick, cream-colored coat and a sweet, intelligent face with thoughtful brown eyes. Briggs is living proof of the saying that some things just get better with age! This senior dog is about 8-10 years old, but still has plenty of energy for his age. He has excellent manners, is housetrained, loves to go for long walks, and gets along well with other dogs. If you are seeking a larger, gentle dog who doesn't need a lot of activity or excitement, Briggs is the canine for you.
