If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Tired of all this spring snow? This bonded pair is the perfect solution! August is the kitten (she’s an only child, approximately 8 months old) and Summer is her devoted Mommy. These beautiful ladies are looking for a home together where they can bring all the warmth you need! August is playful and affectionate, and loves to sing for her supper! She has learned some important kitten lessons, like not jumping in with you in the bubble bath, but hopes to find a forever home where you and Summer can continue to raise her right together! Summer is sweet and gentle but a bit more wary than her daughter and is missing a part of her tail, but that doesn’t stop her from being friendly, or a great laserbeam chaser! She is still a youngster herself, at about 18 months old, and yet likes to keep up on current events… Learn more about and apply to adopt August and Summer here and here.

Meet Tiger! A Dachshund mix, Tiger is about 1 1/2 years old, and weighs just 30 adorable pounds! This cute little brindle boy was rescued with his brother, Bandit, who already found his forever home. Tiger was the more timid of the two, and needed some time to build his confidence level up and learn how to be an inside dog and part of a family. He has been in his foster home since December, and because of his committed and patient foster dad, Gary, he’s really come out of his shell to become a more confident dog. He still loves to be around people, but he’s also gaining some independence and instead of staying right by Gary’s side all the time, he will now hang out in other areas of home, often scoping out the best spot to sunbathe. Tiger has learned the love of family, and is now friendly and interested in people. He runs to the door to greet Gary’s parents, enjoys play sessions with Benji, the family dog, and patiently rolls over to get belly rubs from the family’s 4-year-old niece who visits regularly. Tiger will fit best in a calm home, with another dog to help bolster his confidence and be his playmate and companion. He’s very sweet and affectionate, and just needs the love a good family to fully blossom. Apply today here.
