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.
Meet handsome and gentle super senior, Beto! This distinguished gent was found as a stray, and once his rescuer brought him inside, she realized what a wonderful and friendly guy he is! Beto is very sociable and loving, and loves to chat with his humans and provide up close and personal purring services – he even smiles, see? Because he was found outside we are guessing his age to be about 9 or 10 years old. After weathering life outside, Beto had some dental issues and was too thin, but he’s now gaining weight and feeling much better! He is incredibly social and loves his humans, and has not exhibited fear of dogs when at the vet, but is not interested in or friendly with other cats. Beto loves canned food, and will do best in an affectionate home where he can share all the love he has to give now that he’s safe! To find out more about adopting Beto, email [email protected]
Freddie is a pup who was also rescued from outdoor life; in his case, a veterinary employee in South Carolina noticed him chained to a pole and convinced his owners to let him come live inside! Freddie’s amazing fosters are helping him to gain weight and confidence as he heals from neglect and mistreatment. But luckily, Freddie is resilient! He’s a snuggle bug who loves to sit on laps and sleep in bed with you if allowed (but his crate’s cool too). Freddie is estimated to be about 2-3 years old, and is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix, who will weigh about 60-65 lbs. once fully healthy. His foster mom notes that he LOVES to go for walks, and doesn’t mind cold or rain (welcome to DC, Freddie!). He’s good with cats, but as Freddie lived alone for too long, he still needs to build pup-to-pup social skills, so will be best as an only dog for now. But Freddie’s a smart guy who learns fast. He is a true lovebug who will make someone a fantastic companion! Find out more about adopting Fabulous Freddie here.
