Miami, FL – Two loving puppies need new homes immediately!

Meg and Peg two lively, energetic Labrador Retriever puppies looking for a home(s). They’re currently 2 months old. When full grown, they will each be between 40-50 lbs. They’re both very engaging, love to play with toys, and enjoy running around together. Meg and Peg love people and are friendly with everyone they meet, and they’d love to meet a special someone who wants to love them forever. Long walks, runs, or fetching sessions will keep them happy and fit. If you are an active person looking for a sports buddy (or two), take Meg and Peg out for a spin; They may be your perfect companions. Meg and Peg do not have to be adopted together, but they would certainly like it if someone were able. While looking at their picture makes it hard to imaging seperating them, if you are able to adopt one, please do not hesitate. It would be devastating if both were euthanized because nobody was willing to separate them.

I was forwarded an email from someone that works at the Miami-Dade shelter. She really cares for these two babies and would really like for them to find loving homes and the lives they deserve. Please help her and these loving dogs if you are able.

Meg and Peg are located at the Miami-Dade Animal Services facility, located at 7401 NW 74th Street, Miami, FL.

Meg’s shelter ID is A1110079. Peg’s shelter ID is A1110080.

National Black Cat Day!

November 17th marks the second annual National Black Cat Day in Italy. It is not only in the U.S. that black cats are seen as signs of evil curses and bad luck. The Italian Association in Defense of Animals and the Environment organized National Black Cat Day to try to spread the truth about black cats and rto educe the number of black cats killed in Italy each year. An estimated 60,000 black cats are killed in Italy each year. Many are also kidnapped and/or abandoned.

Of course, black cats have it bad in America as well. The Journal of Applied Animal Welfare found that in shelters, black cats are half as likely to get adopted as are tabby cats and two-thrids less likely to be adopted than white cats. Many rescue organizations and shelters even have to probihit the adoption of black cats during October due to the nasty treatment many unfortunately receive.

But, I am here to tell you that black cats and wonderful and should be celebrated. I have known several black cats in my day and not one of them brought with them evil curses or years of bad luck! In fact, it seems it is the cats themselves that have the bad luck, on behalf of human behavior.

So, here are the top ten reasons why everyone should adopt a black cat:

    10. You’ll save money on their Halloween costumes.
    9. You can always find them in the snow.
    8. Holding a black cat is very slimming.
    7. Black cats will match any decor.
    6. A link brush isn’t required for a black-tie affair.5. When you love a black cat, luck is on your side.

    4. Black cats are like onyx, a beautiful gem!

    3. Hey, they don’t care what color you are!

    2.They are least likely to be adopted.

    1. Love knows no color.

Philadephia, PA – URGENT! Young Shepherd pup needs foster/adopt/rescue ASAP!

A young female Shepherd mix dog, estimated to be between 6 months-1 year, is in immediate need of a foster family or forever home! She was abandoned and then surrendered to PAWS animal shelter in Philadelphia, PA on Tuesday, Nov. 11. She is very friendly, but the shelter can only keep animals for a VERY limited amount of time. She is still available, but the shelter does not know how long they can keep her. This means she could probably be euthanized at any time. Unfortunately, the shelter doesn’t even have a picture of this dog up on their site, meaning there is even a smaller chance of this dog finding a home. This is simply because they have so many dogs that they cannot post them all. I have been told by a shelter worker that asked me to post this dog that she is very beautiful, and her coloring is brown with some black.

The dog’s shelter ID is # A06369487.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering this dog, please call PAWS at 267-385-3800.
