Adopt Aurora: An Awesome Pitbull Mix

Meet Aurora.  She is an awesome pitbull mix and is available for adoption.

Aurora is about three-years-old.  She weighs about 40 pounds, so she is smaller than most pitbulls.  She came to Independent Animal Rescue in December.

This dog feeds off the energy around her.  She will be quiet when you are quiet and will be energized when your energy level goes up.

From the Independent Animal Rescue:

“She might not do well with kids under 5 as she gets excited when they are, and sometimes knocks them over and covers them with kisses. She loves playing ball and walks. Aurora is very food and praise motivated, so is a good learner.  She sits on command, and is learning paw. She is crate trained and working on leash manners. Because she pulls on a leash when distracted by deer or other animals, we use an “easy walk” harness which seems to have solved the walk tugs.”

Aurora is also great with other dogs.

From their website animalrescue.net:

Our mission is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We shall strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We will serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth.

Toby: An Adopt-A-Pet Success

Every Tuesday morning, WCHL airs a segment called Adopt-A-Pet.

Adopt-A-Pet

Ron Stutts with Toby

We feature an animal looking for a home from local adoption agencies like Independent Animal RescueOrange County Animal Services, and Paws4Ever.

This week, Ron Stutts featured a cat named Toby.

Toby is not up for adoption, he is an Adopt-A-Pet success story.

We featured Toby (then known as Marlo) back in June.  We learned that the tabby is blind.

Carla Shuford heard the segment got in touch with her friend, Charlene Hayes.

Charlene has cared for blind cats her entire life.  At the time, she was preparing to spend six months in Mexico.  So, she adopted Toby and immediately went down to Mexico.

They have returned.

Toby now works at Charles House as a therapy cat.  As a cat trained to walk on a leash, he is particularly unique.

Over 100 unpaid volunteers work for Independent Animal Rescue.

From their website animalrescue.net:

Our mission is to rescue and provide safe and responsible care for homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We shall strive to help all animals in need through our service programs. We will serve our communities through promotion of spay or neuter for all companion animals, and the education of children and adults in the humane care, respect and responsibility for animals on this earth.

Adopt Peanut: A Wonderful Chihuahua

Peanut is looking for a home.  You can adopt Peanut at Orange County Animal Services.

When he came to the shelter, the medical staff noticed that he walked a little funny.  A doctor diagnosed Peanut with luxating pelvis.  Many dogs are able to compensate very well with luxating patellas and never need further treatment.  There are some dogs, however, who require surgery to deepen the groove and keep the patella in place.  It is important not to let Peanut get overweight as this would add more stress on the joints.

Adopt Patty: The Mighty Kitten

Orange County Animal Services is looking for somebody who wants to adopt Patty.

Patty is a mighty kitten who will melt your heart.

She came into the WCHL and Chapelboro office Tuesday morning.  She was cute and quiet.  Sarah from Orange County Animal Services told us about her bad leg.  She said that Patty can only use three of her legs.

Then, she sat Patty down.

The mighty kitten with only three legs took off across the office.  She does not let a bad leg hold her back.

Patty is about 3 months old, according to Animal Services.  She is a Tabby, short-hair (but, her hair is a bit longer than many short-hairs).  She has gray and white hair, white boots, and green eyes.  You can hold her with one hand and she will let you.

Orange County Animal Services is looking for somebody to adopt Patty, today.  Last week, Sarah brought in Leah, a sweet terrier.  Leah was adopted almost immediately.

Adopt Patty today at Orange County Animal Services.  She is in Cat Adoption Room 1.
