Every Life Matters

Featured Cat

His picture says it all-Lionel loves a big, cushy bed! Whenever a warm spot is available to lay in, Lionel’s there! He doesn’t care if there’s other kittens or he’s by himself, if he can be comfortable, he wants in. Lionel can typically be found curled up somewhere. When he wakes, he loves being carried around and softly pet. He adores being with people and never shies away. When he’s feeling playful, Lionel likes to carry crinkle balls in his mouth and bat them across the floor. He would do well in a home with one of his siblings, but would be content on his own. Lionel’s only request is to find a family that will take care of his the rest of his life!

Please email, DFriendsOfTheShelter@yahoo.com with any questions! If you would like to meet Lionel please fill out an adoption application that can be found at: www.pawsforfriends.com. Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon!

THIS ADOPTION COMES WITH 30 DAYS OF PRE-PAID PET HEALTH INSURANCE COURTESY OF FRIENDS OF THE SHELTER, INC. OUR ORGANIZATION USES 24PETWATCH MICROCHIP LOST PET RECOVERY NETWORK, WHICH INCLUDES FREE REGISTRATION INTO THE 24PETWATCH PET RECOVERY DATABASE.

$40 Adoption Special-November-December 2014 #2

 

Featured Dog

We met PJ when he was brought in by the Urbana police. He doesn’t just bark but sounds like he’s trying to pronounce words, not sure if it’s English?  People attempting to enter the medical clinic in Urbana were afraid of him but we believe he was trying to tell people he needed help, thank goodness he got it!  PJ was reluctant to get into the vehicle for transporting him to the shelter until the officer tempted him with his own lunch, yes, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Can you guess how he got the name PJ?

PJ suffers from hip dysplasia and spondylosis.  The pain and discomfort from his condition is being successfully managed with medication.  His has responded to treatment for a skin infection without complaining, and now has a gorgeous red coat. A vet exam also revealed that many of PJ’s teeth are broken off, likely from trying to escape his enclosure wherever he was being housed and not being fed or with access to water.

Even after being treated so poorly PJ wants nothing more than to be showered with attention by people!  He is a true testament of a forgiving creature.  Until he is adopted we need your help to cover his pain medication and vet expenses.  If you can help PJ please go to the SPONSOR ME button, any amount will help and is very appreciated. Thank you!
