The Vineyard Gazette – Martha’s Vineyard News
Maxine’s adoption is on hold, so now we need an angel for another elderly lady, Lily. She is a 16 year old tortoiseshell cat. She has a lovely personality and is sweet, even responding when called. Her temperament is calm and she is also very affectionate. Someone please give this girl a home for her last years.
We also need an angel for an older male Jack Russell terrier. Petey is 15 and deaf, but he’s a good boy with a lot of life in him. He also has a brown eye patch, hence his name. His only downside is that he shouldn’t live with cats, but otherwise he’s a great little dog. He has no place in a shelter.
Other residents in need of housing include: Faith, our 22 year old cat; Humpty and Dumpty the guinea pig sisters; Fred, a male guinea pig; and Ophelia, an adorable hamster. Any of these animals would love to find a forever home.
The Rabies Clinic is back and will be held March 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the West Tisbury Public Safety Building at 425 State Road. The fee is $25, cash or check. Dogs must be kept on a leash and cats must be in carriers. Hope to see you there.
