Pets of the Week (December 7, 2011)

Miko wants a home

Miko is a gor­geous Lab­rador re­triev­er/ter­ri­er mix who was found as a stray on the streets of Phil­adelphia. He is avail­able for ad­op­tion at the An­im­al Care and Con­trol shel­ter, 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Ave. The dog is a friendly, lov­able big boy who would love to find a home be­fore Christ­mas. He gets along with oth­er dogs, and though he showed some in­terest in cats, wasn’t ag­gress­ive, just curi­ous.

Miko weighs about 70 pounds and can be strong on the leash, but with some train­ing will quickly learn how to walk like a gen­tle­man.

Miko’s coat is su­per soft and will provide years of great cud­dling with this sweet, eager-to-please boy. ••

Hop to the Bunny

Bunny is a fe­male dwarf rab­bit in need of a home.

The rab­bit is avail­able for ad­op­tion at the Wo­men’s Hu­mane So­ci­ety, at 3839 Rich­lieu Road, Ben­s­alem. Her tag num­ber is H366521.

Ad­op­tion hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tues­days, Thursdays, Fri­days and Sat­urdays and 1 to 7 p.m. on Wed­nes­days. Light­ning, a cat who ap­peared in a re­cent edi­tion of the Times, has been ad­op­ted.

Call 215-750-3100 or vis­it www.whs­pets.org ••

Far­rah is an an­gel

Far­rah is a gor­geous gray/white long-haired fe­male cat avail­able for ad­op­tion at the North­east An­im­al Res­cue.

She loves cat­nip and play­ing with toys. She would do best as an only cat. She is up to date on shots and spayed, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line im­mun­ode­fi­ciency and leuk­emia vir­uses.

Any­one in­ter­ested in ad­opt­ing Far­rah can vis­it the North­east An­im­al Res­cue, loc­ated in­side the PetS­mart at 11000 Roosevelt Blvd., or fill out an ap­plic­a­tion at nar.res­cuegroups.org ••

Dex­ter needs se­cur­ity

Dex­ter is a 5-year-old or­ange tabby that was aban­doned. The poor boy lived out­side for three months un­til be­ing res­cued. Dex­ter gets along with oth­er cats after a prop­er in­tro­duc­tion and would be OK with chil­dren, but he has not been ex­posed to dogs yet. 

Dex­ter is neutered, vac­cin­ated, felv and fiv neg­at­ive and mi­cro-chipped. He’s in foster care via For­got­ten Cats. FC provides ster­il­iz­a­tion as­sist­ance for home­less fe­lines.
