Choose a Pet: Check Out These Local Animals Looking for a Home
Teddy Teddy is an 11 month old medium sized lab mix. It weighs around 52 pounds and probably won’t gain much weight, if at all. Teddy was recently reported when his owner could no longer keep him. He really needs someone who has time to spend with him. Teddy would like to find a family with an active lifestyle since he is still young and energetic. He was tested with a large dog and was very playful. He would do better in a home without cats because they are too much fun to hunt! To adopt, go to www.anitas-sshs.org/adopt/apply/Dog. Anita’s Stevens-Swan Humane Society, 5664 Horatio St., Utica, 315-738-4357, www.anitas-sshs.org.
Muttley Muttley is a 4 year old mixed breed, who would love to be the only pet in the house. Do you like a good workout? Then Muttley is the dog for you. This loving boy is so excited for his rides that a stronger handler would be the best match for him. One of Muttley’s favorite activities is getting brushed outside on a sunny day. He would love nothing more than to spend his summer lounging next to you in the sun. If you’d like to meet him, stop by the shelter, Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association, 7138 Sutherland Drive, Canastota, or call them at 315-697-2796.

Stop at the shelter and meet him to see if there is a match. Humane Society of Rome, 6247 Lamphear Road, Rome, 315-336-7070, www.humanesocietyrome.com.
