The shelter staff and our furry friends at the North Country SPCA are getting excited about our upcoming open house this Saturday, Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Francis Miller Adoption Center. We can promise lots of smiles, purrs and wagging tails for our visitors, as well as opportunities for free adoptions, face painting for the kids, food, games and a sampling of crafts and local goods for sale. You can even enter our Golf Ball Drop contest for a chance to win $25,000.
You can learn more about those events by visiting our Facebook page or contacting our staff at 518-873-5000. You can also visit our website at ncspca.org.
Our featured pet this week is Keith, a Pomeranian and Cocker Spaniel-mix who came in with his brother, Toby. Keith is a shy little guy who is frightened of strangers, but once he gets to know you, he is the most lovable fellow around. Keith has a playful, affectionate personality and would love to be part of a home where he can curl up on your couch or in his own doggie bed. Keith is about eight months old and has a beautiful, thick chocolate coat. He weighs about 20 pounds - the perfect size to join you in your travels! Shelter staff are working with this sweet pup to develop good manners. With a little patience, TLC and some training, this little guy will make the perfect companion. If you have room in your home and your heart, why not consider adopting both Keith and Toby for double the love? Please stop by and meet this “pocket pooch.”
