Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week!
Petfinder.com has designated this week (September 17- 25) as "Adopt-A-Less_Adoptable-Pet" Week. My mom has a soft spot in her heart for Petfinder.com, that's where she found me! My litter mates and I were dumped at a Georgia kill-shelter, all of us suffering from Parvo. Parvo is very expensive to treat, so things didn't look very good for us. Thankfully, 11th Hour Rescue, from Hopatcong, NJ rescued us. They brought us here to New Jersey and had all of us treated and cared for, thanks to their wonderful volunteers and contributers. We now share our home with three senior kitties *whispering, now they're 19 years young!*, all adopted as "mature" adults (9+ years) and with two (mostly black) kittens found on our street during the Christmas holidays. We love them all (just don't tell my doggy pals at the lounge, 'kay?). It breaks our hearts to see so many pets needing to enjoy the comfort and love of their forever families. I'd like to introduce you to a couple of special pets featured at 11th Hour, the first is Mason, a Shepherd/Hound mix. Here is his story:
