Pista­chio loves to play all day

Pista­chio is a 1- to 2-year-old me­di­um-sized dog who weighs around 40 pounds.

The ter­ri­er/box­er/pit bull mix is at Phil­adelphia’s An­im­al Care and Con­trol, at 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Ave. His tag num­ber is A17549700.

The dog, who was giv­en up when his own­ers moved, knows how to sit and takes treats very nicely. He en­joys run­ning and play­ing.

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

Benny is a sweet­heart

Benny is a cute little or­ange kit­ten who lost an eye due to an in­fec­tion but loves to play and get at­ten­tion.

He is in foster care via For­got­ten Cats. He gets along with oth­er cats. He is vac­cin­ated and neutered, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line leuk­emia and im­mun­ode­fi­ciency vir­uses.

Mon­kee and Nut­ter are twice as nice

Mon­kee and Nut­ter are act­ive purring ma­chines who love to play with any toy that makes noise.

The broth­er and sis­ter, who are 6 months old, are in the care of North­east An­im­al Res­cue. They had severe eye in­fec­tions, but have been suc­cess­fully treated, though they will al­ways have im­paired vis­ion.

The dy­nam­ic duo en­joys life, in­clud­ing chas­ing each oth­er and sleep­ing on the couch. It would be best if they are ad­op­ted to­geth­er.

Mon­kee is spayed, and Nut­ter is neutered. They are mi­cro­chipped and cur­rent on vac­cin­a­tions, and have tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line im­mun­ode­fi­ciency and leuk­emia vir­uses.
