Give Bully a pul­pit

Bully is a sweet, round-headed, 5-year-old Amer­ic­an Stafford­shire ter­ri­er who is avail­able for ad­op­tion at Phil­adelphia’s An­im­al Care and Con­trol, at 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Ave. His tag num­ber is A16363307.

The dog weighs 50 pounds and is built like a teapot — short and stout. He’ll need to meet oth­er dogs in a fam­ily be­fore be­ing ad­op­ted be­cause of his pushy play style.

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

That’s Amore

Amore is a 1- to 2-year-old tabby who was found starving and wan­der­ing at a flea mar­ket.

The cat lit­er­ally jumped in­to the arms of a For­got­ten Cats vo­lun­teer. He is lov­ing and well be­haved and great with oth­er pets and chil­dren. He would make an ex­cep­tion­al lap cat or cuddle kitty.

Amore is neutered and vac­cin­ated, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line leuk­emia and im­mun­ode­fi­ciency vir­uses. He is in foster care via For­got­ten Cats.

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

Mor­gan’s a sur­viv­or

North­east An­im­al Res­cue in May came across a lit­ter of new­born kit­tens in a dog house, with no mom to be found.

The or­gan­iz­a­tion took the kit­tens in­to foster care and bottle-fed them. Sadly, Mor­gan was the only sur­viv­or, but she’s a fight­er and is do­ing well. She’s play­ful and en­er­get­ic and ready for a per­man­ent home.

Mor­gan is spayed, mi­cro­chipped and cur­rent on vac­cin­a­tions, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line im­mun­ode­fi­ciency and leuk­emia vir­uses.

To ad­opt Mor­gan, fill out an ap­plic­a­tion at ht­tp://nar.res­cuegroups.org/an­im­als/de­tail?An­im­al­ID=4749953 ••
