A Paws for Pets — Who’s up for adoption? Dog Edition

By Noelle Mandeville, York Adopt A Pet

We have so many wonderful dogs to choose from at York Adopt A Pet. I just want to tell you a little bit about them. We are open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 3 p.m., or can meet by appointment. In addition, we are always in need of volunteers so if you want to come help out with either cats or dogs, let us know!

Viola is a 1 ½-year-old spayed female pit bull who is beautiful! She was adopted out but did not end up getting along with the chickens so she is now back in our care. She loves people and would probably do best being an only dog or meeting the other pets in the home first. She’s a very friendly girl who just wants a home to call her own.

Buckley is an almost-2-year-old neutered German short hair retriever cross. He will have been with us a year in January. He is active so we are looking for a family who has a fenced in area where he can run off his energy. He sits before going outside and keeps his kennel very clean. He’s very treat motivated and is learning his leash manners.

Vulpix and Eevee — these sisters are going to be celebrating a birthday Oct. 23 at York Adopt A Pet. They would love to find a home to settle into and a family to spend time with. They are strong girls who pull on the leash. They love playing with toys, act like typical sisters and sometimes get annoyed when having to share with each other. What a birthday gift it would be if they received an adoption application!

Millie is an almost-2-year-old black lab cross. Her owner was moving and unable to take her along. She enjoys spending time with the volunteers and is great friends with Buckley. It would be best if she goes to a home without cats but does well with other dogs. If you are looking for a companion, she will be sure to steal your heart and maybe your couch if you will let her.

I could tell you so much more but I highly encourage you to stop by the shelter or come spend time volunteering at York Adopt A Pet and who knows maybe you will end up taking home a new family member. They all are wishing and waiting for a family please let’s make that dream come true.
