PAWS: October is Adopt-a-Dog month
October is National Adopt-a-Dog month, and we have a flock of lovely dogs for you to choose from. Stop by between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday to meet Ted, Skwiggles, Frida, Maggie and Codey. There’s not space here to show all of them to you, but let’s start with Ted and Skwiggles.
Ted is an extremely handsome 3-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever who wants — and deserves — nothing more than his own family. A classic Lab whose greatest pleasure is pleasing his family, he loves walks, his toys and other animals. He’s smart as a whip and is probably anxious to learn a trick or two from a loving friend. Don’t dawdle, because by the time you get here some other lucky person may have gotten a great dog.
Skwiggles is a wiggler and a happy-go-lucky kind of gal. This outgoing, enthusiastic young lady is almost a year old, so she has a lot of energy and would make someone a great running partner. She’s a pit bull, with all the great qualities of that breed: loving, faithful, responsive and obedient (well, most of the time, but sometimes her exuberance carries her away, and she might carry you with her). Come by and take her for a walk or a run in the leaves. You’ll love her as much as we do.
We are in great need of dog toys for our lively group of four-legged friends. They love anything, from rope toys to Kongs and even non-stuffed toys. If you can’t adopt a dog this month, help us enrich their lives by bringing some toys and paying them some attention. We guarantee that you will be thrilled to see how happy these little things make our sweet boys and girls.
Don’t forget to stop by the shelter for your tickets to the Brass Quintet concert, $20 for adults and $10 for children. The Midcoast Brass Quintet will perform a benefit concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at Chestnut Street Baptist Church in Camden. The program is delightfully diverse, with classical works by Franz Joseph Haydn, Gabriel Fauré, J.J. Mouret, Joseph-Hector Fiocco, Johann Sebastian Bach and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (of “Pyotr and the Wolf” fame, of course), to name just a few—and, on the popular and jazz side, Fats Waller, Lew Pollack and Henry Filmore.
Don’t forget to take a look at our new website at pawsadoption.org. We are looking for feedback, so let us know what you like and what you don’t.
On our wish list: dish detergent, bleach, paper towels, canned cat and dog food and, of course, volunteers to help us play with the animals.
Please stop in and see us and all our beautiful babes at 146 Camden St. in Rockport. We’re open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and pawsadoption.org is never closed! And thank you, as always, for your caring and support.
