October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month
October is Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month. We have a number of young and young-at-heart dogs that are waiting for a new home. Come on in for a visit and fetch a best friend for life. Adopt a shelter dog or a shelter cat; you’ll both be grateful that you did. How about our pet picks of the week Buka and Gorgeous George. Buka is a handsome, 5-year-old pit bull terrier. This big lug is definitely a lover, wanting to be your constant companion. He thrives on attention. Buka is a well-behaved, housebroken dog that knows basic commands. He is fine with feline companions and gets along with most dogs, especially small ones. He wasn't treated well in a previous home and deserves to be the center of attention and spoiled in his new home. If you're looking for an attentive, playful companion then come in and meet Buka.
Need a little love and luck in your life? Meet Gorgeous George, a very loving, striking 3-year-old calico cat. Calico cats, those having a fur pattern of white, black and orange, are almost always female and are considered by many to be lucky. Even luckier, because of their rarity, are male calicos also called money cats. Is Gorgeous George lucky? Absolutely. You'd be lucky to have this affectionate, gregarious feline companion as a member of your family and he'd be lucky to have a permanent, safe, indoor only, loving home to call his own.
How has your pet made a difference in your life? We want to know why your pet is special to you, and to find out, we are offering a raffle called “Pets Make A Difference”. Entering is free and open to all. You need only a photo of you and your pet, and the answer to the question: “Why does my pet make a difference in my life?” Winners will receive one of three fabulous prizes: a one-year family membership from Penobscot Bay YMCA, a $500 gift card from Maritime Energy, or a romantic overnight stay for two at Point Lookout Resort. Winners will be announced in mid-November. Displays and entry forms can be found at Rockland Hannaford, Townline Maritime Farms in Rockland, Union Agway, Damariscotta Bank and Trust in Warren, Highlands Coffee House in Thomaston, and of course, at the shelter.
