Pups galore being offered to loving homes
It’s a pupalooza weekend. The SPCA animal centre in Sudbury is making 10 pups from the same litter available for adoption tomorrow.
Eight of the cuties, who just got fixed this week, are scheduled to audition for a new home at the PetSmart on Marcus Drive, in the Silver Hills complex, on Saturday.
The other two, both females, will be offered through the SPCA on a foster-to-adopt basis until such time as they are spayed.
The 10 husky-shepherd babes arrived on Oct. 19 with their mother as part of a delivery from remote Northern communities. Five other pups from a different litter were also in care at the SPCA but all found homes earlier this week.
“Over 30 animals came in on the last transfer and we kept 15 dogs altogether here, so it’s been a busy few weeks around here,” said SPCA manager Jen Hughes.
The pups are being offered to takers as part of a National Adoption Weekend through PetSmart stores.
The adoption blitzes are held four times per year by PetSmart Charities, in collaboration with animal welfare organizations like the SPCA.
“When you attend, you’ll find dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and small pets all in need of a lifelong, loving home,” according to the PetSmart website.
“The amazing organizations we work with ensure each pet is spayed and neutered prior to adoption, giving you added peace of mind as you search for your new best friend.”
