Re­mem­ber pets are for life, not just Christ­mas

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

LABRADOR mix Tess has such a beau­ti­ful na­ture that the Dogs’ Refuge Home use her as a “test­ing dog” to see if other dogs for adop­tion are so­cia­ble. The one-year-old girl would ide­ally go to a fam­ily who have lots of time to spend with her at the beach and park, mak­ing new friends. Although she is a lit­tle ex­citable and strong on the lead, Tess would re­spond well to more in-depth train­ing. Kit­ten sea­son at the Cat Haven means they have more minia­ture fluff-balls than usual, but that does not mean they make a good gift for Christ­mas. Black beauty Boo­p­ity and cal­ico Penny are just two of more than 50 kit­tens avail­able for adop­tion, with many more in foster care. Cat wel­fare of­fi­cer Elisha Blackie said peo­ple want­ing to adopt a kit­ten should think their decision through care­fully. Watch Tess, Boo­p­ity and Penny’s video de­buts on the WesternSuburb­sWeekly Face­book page.
