Start­Frag­ment

Hey, Mo

Mo is an af­fec­tion­ate cat who likes to purr. She has been with North­east An­im­al Res­cue since last Septem­ber, when she was res­cued after tak­ing a ride in the en­gine com­part­ment of a car for sev­er­al miles.

The cat’s name is short for “Mo­tor Oil,” since she was filthy with en­gine grease, ema­ci­ated and full of scabs and hair loss from fleas when she emerged from the en­gine com­part­ment.

Since then, she has gained weight, her scabs have healed and her fur has grown in beau­ti­fully. She loves at­ten­tion and wants noth­ing more than a home of her own. She is great with chil­dren and may do well in a home with a mel­low or laid-back dog.

Mo, who is 21 months old, is spayed and cur­rent on vac­cin­a­tions, and she has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line im­mun­ode­fi­ciency and leuk­emia vir­uses.

To ad­opt Mo, fill out an ap­plic­a­tion at ht­tp://nar.res­cuegroups.org/an­im­als/de­tail?An­im­al­ID=3130567 or vis­it PetS­mart at 11000 Roosevelt Blvd. ••

Play­time for Jamz

Jamz is an ad­or­able 9-month-old, 40-pound Lab­rador/ter­ri­er mix who loves to play.

The dog was found on a train plat­form and is avail­able for ad­op­tion at Phil­adelphia’s An­im­al Care and Con­trol, at 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Ave. The tag num­ber is 15123117.

Jamz knows the “sit” and “down” com­mands, and would love to live with an­oth­er dog and would be fine with a cat in the house. The dog would like to meet any small kids be­fore be­ing ad­op­ted.

Ad­op­tion hours are week­days from 1 to 8 p.m. and week­ends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Any­one in­ter­ested in fos­ter­ing a pet can e-mail ns­mith@pspca.org or jsweeney@pspca.org ••

Pearl’s look­ing for love

Pearl is a small fe­male cat who was neg­lected in a house with too many pets.

The 18-month-old blue tuxedo cat is tim­id, but very gentle and sweet. She is avail­able for ad­op­tion through For­got­ten Cats and is look­ing for someone to love and cher­ish her.

Pearl is spayed and vac­cin­ated, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line leuk­emia and im­mun­ode­fi­ciency vir­uses.

To ap­ply to ad­opt Pearl, vis­it www.pet­find­er.com/shel­ters/PA586.html or go to the PetS­mart at 901 Old York Road in Jen­k­in­town. ••
