Give him a Bear hug
Bear is a medium-sized, 1- to 2-year-old male Staffordshire mix who is staying at Philadelphia’s Animal Care and Control, at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave.
The dog used to have a home, but his owners had to move and he was not able to go along.
Bear is deaf, and shelter volunteers can teach the adopters the appropriate hand signals and what they will need to know to properly take care of him.
The dog walks great on a leash and is already neutered.
Adoption hours are weekdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ••
Barnabas needs your help
Barnabas and his siblings were 14-day-old orphaned kittens when they arrived on Northeast Animal Rescue’s doorstep for help.
Now 3 months old, Barnabas and his siblings have defied the odds and have grown up healthy and strong.
However, upon an exam prior to his neuter surgery, Barnabas was found to have an injury to his genitalia, with a stenotic urethra. After a consultation with a veterinary surgeon, NAR learned that Barnabas will need a corrective surgery called a perineal urethrostomy.
NAR is asking for the public’s help to offset the cost of this life-saving procedure, so that Barnabas can overcome another hurdle in his fight to live the life he deserves.
