    Barn Buddies available from animal shelter

    Our pet pick of the week is actually a group of cats at the shelter we call Barn Buddies. These are cats that are not suitable to be house pets for a variety of reasons. There are the obvious ones, the feral cats whose wild nature and unsociability make them undesirable companion animals. Or the cats who think the bathroom sink is an acceptable alternative to a litter box. We also have cats who are shy or fearful …

    Loyal companion seeks loving home

    Our pet pick of the week is Studley, a very handsome 1-year-old pit/Lab mix. Yes, he’s a pit mix but think Petey from Our Gang aka Little Rascals rather than the media hype surrounding pit bulls today. Studley is a friendly dog good with kids, cats and other dogs. You can usually find Studley romping around the play yard with his fellow canine shelter buddies. He is a happy, energetic dog who is good on a leash …

    Dog is my co-pilot

    Our pet pick of the week is Boomer, a sweet, lovable, little-bit-on-the-plump-side 3-year-old redbone coonhound. Boomer enjoys family life.

    Submissions needed for Humane Society’s pet calendar

    Our pet pick of the week is Henry, an adorable 2-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix who was found wandering the streets of Rockland. To our surprise, no one came to claim him at the shelter. Henry is a happy boy with a big personality who will benefit from some basic training.
