Morristown, VT – For the first time since the pandemic, the North Country Animal League is opening its pet adoption center to the public.
“It’s been a long road for us and our adoptions, so we’re thrilled to have people here seeing the animals interact with them and we know that’s how they’ll find homes faster,” said the general manager, Tracy Goldine. “We currently have about 15 cats ready to find their new homes and we also have a full kennel of dogs, so probably about 15-17 dogs right now looking for homes, dogs and puppies”
“So we have three frisky kittens, Artie, Kurt and Blaine, these three are four-month-old siblings, lots of very playful and also very cuddly personalities,” said Lusana Masrur, director of development and sensitization.
For those who have never had a kitten, Masrur offered the following advice. “Kittens are really easy, surprisingly, yes, they play, they have a lot of energy, but they are very good at learning to use the litter box, they come out of the womb full of personality.”
Another cat, Princess, is five years old and was stray. “As you can see, she has a very nice temperament and is very calm. We have dogs walking at the moment and she’s watching them rather relaxing, happy to be here between people.
Last but not least, the puppies. “These little idiots are brownies and snoopers, they were found wandering and now they’re settling down, just ready to brighten up someone’s life.”
The shelter reopens Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, click here.
