The holidays are over and the presents unwrapped. Many pets, ours included, got bouncy balls, fluffy squeak toys, and yummies they couldn’t wait to get into their tummies. And a lot of pets got the best gift of all: a home for the holidays..
Take Gracie, pictured here. She’s a Papillion, a breed known as butterfly spaniels because their ears look like spread butterfly wings. A few years ago she was adopted. Yes! She was actually put up for adoption. Now, she enjoys agility, nose work, and is a joy to her family.
And this is Casanova, happily greeting folks at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center. His new family is in the parking lot, getting the car around to bring him to his forever home in time for the holidays.
The same story with a happy ending is true for many dogs and cats.
But for those who have not managed to have a home for the holidays, there are still dreams of a happy new year.
And Chanticleer, a happy little guy who came to St. Hubert’s as a stray.
Plus these little guys – all looking to start the New Year with a family to love.
If you have room in your heart and home, pay a visit to your local animal shelter. You’ll find dogs, cats, birds, and pocket pets — love in all shapes and sizes.
