Spotlight on Adoption!

I’ve been struggling recently when it comes to thinking of ideas for this blog.  I started it with the purpose of documenting the health struggles that my furbabies were going through; as a way for me to get my feelings out of my head.  However, since at the moment my kiddos are thankfully healthy, I haven’t had much to write about!  That got me to thinking – why not write about other animals who need help?  I spend so much time just “window shopping” on Petfinder, I may as well start sharing some of my favorite pets that are looking for homes.  Ready to adopt your next furry bundle of joy?   Read on!

This adoptable friend Maxine is one of THOSE cats. You know the kind. The kind that simply exudes sweetness and love. The kind that everyone who meets her is immediately smitten with.

maxmaxinemaxine_origMaxine has been at The K.A.T Shelter in Hilton, NY since 2006.  2006!  That’s over a decade spent in a shelter without a family of her own.  As you can see from these pictures, beautiful and super friendly snowy white Maxine totally enjoys spending time with her human pals.  Maxine requires daily eye cleaning, as with most white cats, she has a runny eye condition.  Maxine is about 14 years old, and she’s still dreaming of a home of her own where she can spend her senior years resting on a lap.  This ladycat is spayed, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV.  Won’t you come meet her today? You (and Maxine) will be glad you did!

Even though he was in the middle of posing for his selfies, this handsome big boy, Tuck, wanted to be sure to wish everybody a happy Easter. Such a thoughtful pup!
Tuck is about 8 years old. He’s still a little shy with new people but is really beginning to come out of his shell with all the love and attention he’s getting from the Ayres Animal Shelter staff and volunteers.  They have no doubt that he will positively blossom in a quiet forever home.  Tuck is neutered and current on his vaccinations.  He needs a home with no other dogs, cats, children.  Email the shelter to find out more information about him today!

Check out this super beautiful girl Liz Taylor!
. Doesn’t she look like she’s beckoning you to give her some love and attention? That’s because she is! You see, Liz Taylor
is one of the friendliest, gentlest (and adoptable!) cats ever.
Liz Taylor’s adoption fee has been sponsored by a generous supporter of Pet Adoption Network!  Liz was thoughtful enough to write her own bio for their website —
“Hello fans.  I know you can’t get enough of me.  I am so beautiful.  Today I am featuring  one of my newest pieces of jewelry.  Isn’t it lovely?  You might be able to have your own private interview with me, all you have to do is e-mail PAN and I will do whatever I can to make your wishes come true.”
To find out more information about her, just email the shelter –

Wait until you get a look at the pup who I saved for last. That sweetheart is the gentle, lap loving friend, Elsa. Unlike the Disney Princess by the same name, this little lady doesn’t have a bit of cold in her heart. She’s made of 100% warmth, love and goodness.
Elsa is about 3 years old and full of spunk.  She is spayed and current on her vaccinations.  Elsa would prefer to be the only dog in the house, but she has lived with other pets in the past, and she LOVES kids!  Elsa has so much love to give to whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Is it you?
You can apply to adopt Elsa on their website –

I could post pictures of animals who need homes for hours and hours on end, but figured I’d keep this one pretty short.  What do you guys think?  Is this something you’d like to see more of?  Also, don’t forget…if you see any pup or kitty on here who you think would make a great fit for you or someone you know, apply to adopt them today!  Open your heart and your home…you won’t regret it.
Happy Easter <3
