Norton’s ready to come home

Norton is a 1- to 2-year-old ter­ri­er mix who is at Phil­adelphia’s An­im­al Care and Con­trol, at 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Ave. His tag num­ber is A20369309.

The dog is brown and white with floppy ears and has an ad­or­able speckled nose. He is me­di­um sized, weigh­ing about 53 pounds. He seems to be house­trained and listens well to ba­sic com­mands.

Norton gets ex­cited to go for walks but settles down nicely once he is out. He walks well on a leash and en­joys sit­ting to re­lax af­ter­ward.

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

Macy’s your girl

Macy is a lovely gal who was found brav­ing the cold winter city streets.

Now in foster care with North­east An­im­al Res­cue, the 3-year-old cat wants to be the cen­ter of at­ten­tion in a per­man­ent home. She does not get along with oth­er an­im­als, so she will need to be the only pet in the home.

Macy loves people and en­joys be­ing held, brushed and fussed over. She is spayed, mi­cro­chipped and cur­rent on vac­cin­a­tions, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line im­mun­ode­fi­ciency and leuk­emia vir­uses.
