After a tremendous response to our “Home for the Holidays” adoption special, January has been a quiet month at the NCSPCA. With the holiday festivities at an end, there is no better time to curl up by the fire with a good book or your favorite television show, sharing the companionship and comfort of a furry friend. We still have many wonderful dogs and cats of all ages, breeds, and personalities who are hoping to find a place in someone’s home - and their heart.
Our featured pet this week is diminutive Angel, a Whippet/Jack Russell Terrier-mix who was abandoned and left to fend for herself. When she arrived at the shelter, she was infested with fleas and horribly malnourished with horribly decayed teeth. A visit to the vet and the care of our shelter staff have taken care of these problems, and she is feeling much better. When Angel looks at you with her big, soulful eyes and wags her thin tail you can see just how grateful she is to have even her basic needs tended - she would absolutely blossom in a home with a retired couple or a stay-at-home mom who has time to shower this appreciative girl with love. She is very neat and clean in her kennel and has perfect leash manners. This little girl (she weighs 18 pounds) truly deserves a second chance - could you be the one to give her one?
