Your Afternoon Animal Fix – AdoPtville

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.

“Buska is a pretty 7-year-old lady who was brought to the shelter when her owner was too ill to care for her. Having suffered abuse from a prior owner as a kitten, Buska can be very nervous in new surroundings, but she does well once she warms up, and loves to play with toys, get petted, and hand out head butts! Buska is gentle and sweet, and would do best in a calm, quiet home, with an experienced cat owner and no small children. She is up to date on all vaccines, and has tested negative for FIV and FELV. With gentle and consistent care, we know Buska can be a lifelong loving companion – can she be yours? Find out more about adopting Buska here or email [email protected]

“Tess is a senior lady whose loyalty to her original owner lasted 12 years – sadly, her owner is now in need of constant care in a memory care facility, so resilient Miss Tess is in need of a new forever home. This 15-lb. Jack Russell mix has lived in all kinds of circumstances, including in a car for a while, but is adjusting beautifully to living in a stable home, and is very laidback and snuggly. Tess also loves exploring her neighborhood on lots of walks, and as a proper lady, knows to ignore barking dogs! She is afraid of crates but is not at all destructive, and her foster family is working hard on perfecting her housetraining – with her prior owner’s history, Tess didn’t have a consistent schedule, but she’s catching on quickly! She is in good health and has no mobility issues, and is very affectionate and connected with her people! Please consider giving this trouper a chance at the pampered golden years she deserves. Find out more about adopting Tess here.”

Volunteer Author’s Note – While these adoptable pets are from different rescue organizations, both ended up in need of homes when their owners were no longer able to care for them.  Whether due to illness, circumstances beyond control, or even death, it’s a wise idea to have a backup plan to protect your pet(s).  Please see this link from the Humane Society of the United States,, which provides information on planning.  You can also create a Pet Protection Plan at LegalZoom,, which provides written instructions in case you are unable to communicate your wishes.
