Pets of the Week: July 16, 2014

Sweetie wants to snuggle with you

Sweetie is a beau­ti­ful, brindle-colored, 45-pound, 1- to 2-year-old ter­ri­er mix who is at Phil­adelphia’s An­im­al Care and Con­trol, at 111 W. Hunt­ing Park Ave. Her tag num­ber is A21976794.

The dog loves people and ap­pre­ci­ates af­fec­tion. This is her second time at the shel­ter, and she is really hop­ing to find a per­man­ent home. She was ad­op­ted in March, but her own­er had to move to a place that did not al­low dogs, and he was very up­set to have to sur­render her.

Sweetie is very in­tel­li­gent and listens well. She seems to be house­trained and is ex­tremely tal­en­ted at fetch. She loves to go for rides. She knows the com­mands “sit” and “drop it” and takes treats very gently. She does not get along with oth­er dogs.

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

Pre­cious Pete

Pete is an af­fec­tion­ate 4-year-old cat who was res­cued after he was spot­ted liv­ing out­side for at least a week. He is in foster care via North­east An­im­al Res­cue.

The cat is friendly and play­ful. He loves head scratches and be­ing brushed. He’s already neutered and front de­clawed.

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