Pets for the week of April 10, 2011

Sunny – SSS seeking LRH

Sweet Snuggly Senior seeking Loving Retirement Home.

I’m a beautiful red-blonde Pomeranian mix who is a sweet talker when I’m not getting enough love to suit me. I do have a low-grade heart murmur my new home will need to track with their regular veterinarian. I will do best in a low-key household. I’m looking for a great retirement home to lounge away my golden years, and a family that will give me the love that I deserve.

Daisy- BSR seeking FRH

Beautiful Speckled Rabbit seeking Free-Range Home.

I’m a very friendly white-and-brown-speckled girl looking for a free-range friendly rabbit home. I love to have my long luxurious ears stroked, and I get along great with kids. I am spayed and microchipped, and can be easily litter box trained, just like a cat! (ask Gastineau Humane Society how!) I’m 6 years old, and looking for a home to call my very own.

Bridget – FECP seeking ALH

Friendly Energetic Cock-a-poo seeking Active Loving Human

I’m a 4-year-old lover-girl with lots of love to share. Despite my small stature, I’m a very agile counter-surfer, so you will need good cupboards and a dog-proof trash can to keep me safe from temptation. Other than my over obsession with food, I’m a lovely girl who gets along with other animals, and I would probably enjoy the company of dog-friendly kids. I need a home that will give me lots of exercise, a strict diet to lose a few pounds, and a lot of love.

Amy – EPG seeking LHC

Energetic Playful Girl seeking Loving Human Companion

I am a 10-month-old energetic, beautiful black feline looking for a forever home to call my very own. I enjoy playing with toys, watching people, and napping in my hidey-hole. I’m a sweet kitty who loves people, but I enjoy my quiet time too. Do you have a spare hidey-hole in your home for me?

To meet these pets, visit the Gastineau Humane Society, 2 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information call 789-2060.

Guy About Town: Help for a town made of people

Hey, all! I hope you’ve been having a healthy, enjoyable January despite the meteorological mood swings. Like seriously, it’s like it can’t decide whether it wants to try to rip the door off my house or knock on it gingerly and sell me cookies. I have the fortune, however, of not having windows in my office. See, I don’t have to watch the tumultuous perpetual gray on the one hand, and on the other I don’t have to feel bad about being inside when it’s sunny. I just turn on my Costa Rica webcam and put my shades and Pet Sounds album on and party with those spreadsheets all day long.
