Ready to adopt a new best friend? For five weeks, we will showcase adoptable pets from different regions across the United States and Canada. On each #BestFriendFriday our goal is to find homes for the pets featured and to raise awareness about some great shelters in North America. Take a look through this week’s pets and share with friends or family that may be looking for a new cuddle buddy or hiking partner. If you’re interested in adopting any of these pets or looking at other adoptable animals, please reach out to the shelter or rescue. Happy #BestFriendFriday!
All of these pets are ready to be adopted and find a forever home! If you’re interested in adopting any of this week’s pets make sure to ask the adoption team about Trupanion‘s special adoption offer.
Location: Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue
Bio: Meet Karmin, a sweet, mostly-blind Yorkie who is patiently waiting for her forever retirement home. Karmin is a senior gal who gets around pretty well with little guidance. She loves her squeaky toys and just wants to sit on the sofa next to you, or on your lap. She’s pee pad trained and would be perfect for a human who is retired or works from home.
Karmin is spayed, up to date with vaccines, and has been heartworm tested and microchipped. She would love to go home with a new family, so check out Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue for more information on this sweet girl!
Location: Tri-County Animal Rescue
Bio: Bart is very playful and extremely smart. He just wants to please everyone he meets! Bart is loving and affectionate but prefers grown-ups to children. He gets along well with other dogs, but sometimes forgets his size and can play a little rough. This Vizsla mix was rescued from a high-kill shelter and needs an owner that will work with him and has the patience to train him. This handsome boy is housebroken and is ready to find his forever home!
Location: Virginia Beach SPCA
Bio: “Hello, my name is Cooper! I arrived at the Virginia Beach SPCA in June of 2016 because my family was worried when they found me snuggling with the baby in the crib. I am a really friendly guy and I actually do quite well with children! I also have experience living with dogs and don’t mind them one bit. Since being here at the shelter, I have been around other cats and what do you know, I like them too! I am a very sweet boy and don’t ask for much – just lots of love! I was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection by the shelter veterinarians, so I am on a special food to help prevent future infections. Urinary tract infections are actually quite common in cats and can be cleared up with antibiotics and preventative food like mine! I would really like a home of my own – I hope you will pick me!”
