Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Shelters across the country are bracing themselves for the increase of stray animals that escape the safety of their homes in fear of fireworks.  While July 4th may be a time for BBQ’s, fireworks and homemade ice cream, it is less thrilling for the family pet. Loud booms and the smell of acrid smoke is often enough to instill panic in some animals, who will do anything to escape the noise and perceived threat.  Area pet lovers are encouraged to take some precautions in advance of the big day and the Front Street Animal Shelter is offering simple, easy and affordable solutions to keep our four legged friends safe.

A beautiful boxer mix is looking for a home! Avee is about two-years-old and while she is active and ready for anything, she is also well behaved and a great listener (especially when treats are involved!) Avee is wired to run, which is not only her favorite activity, but something that she needs to do often to let out her young energy.

SPCA Pet(s) of the Week- The Three Amigos!

SPCA Pet(s) of the Week- The Three Amigos!

This photo of three (six-year-old) Chihuahuas is enough to get your attention! These three brothers (Duke, Mudd Budd & Buddha) have lived together for their whole lives. Though they are not a mandatory dual adoption, we are looking for a home that can possibly take in all three. They are very sweet and affectionate, but also shy, so we are pretty sure that an adult home without small children will suit them best.
