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.

My name’s Buster, and I mean business – the business of being a total snuggle bug, that is! Buster has a serious expression, because he takes his role as your companion very seriously, so much so that he’s worn his tuxedo for the job! Buster is a very laid-back and chill cat, who gets along with other cats, and would probably do well with a cat-friendly dog. He loves and seeks out human affection, and gets along well with his foster siblings. At five years old, Buster is playful but also very well-behaved. He is FIV positive, which means he needs daily medication in his food, but many FIV+ cats live very long lives, and Buster still has LOTS of love to give!

Meet handsome Midnight, a mini dachshund mix who was given up after his owner passed away. Midnight was clearly very loved by his owner, to the point of being quite overweight! He is on a health program, and only has one more pound to lose. Midnight is estimated to be 9-11 years old. Due to the weight issue he has some heart issues that are being addressed with inexpensive medications and he is improving! Midnight is fully housetrained, enjoys slow strolls and gets along well with other dogs and cats. His favorite activity is to snuggle up on your lap (or lap-adjacent J). Midnight is a loving boy looking for a home and people to call his own, and to help him continue to have the best health possible. He promises to repay that kindness with love, snuggles, devotion, snuggles, and snuggles! Find out more about this adorable gent here.

Volunteer Note:  As a reminder, spaying / neutering, and vaccinating your pets is critically important for their health and safety.  Many local organizations offer low- or lower-cost veterinary care.  Below are a few resources:
