Lose a dog in Monroe Twp, NJ?

Lost Dog, originally uploaded by eblackwell.

This little guy was found in our town. He’s scared and would like to go home. Is he yours?

A vet will check tomorrow to see if he has a chip. Meanwhile, if he’s your dog, please contact me through the blog or contact the Oasis Animal Sanctuary. We’ll get this little sweetie back to you!


Good Adoption Day at Petco today!

We have applications for 3 kittens!  And at least 2 more possibilities.  It’s the best Adoption Day I’ve had since I started doing the Deptford Petco event.

Every once in a while, you come across a dog or cat that makes you think, “If I was getting….”.  Today, I met the kitten for me, if I could get a kitten.

At first, I was liking little Jasmine.

Look at how cute she is!  And purr… she has a purr 3 times her size!  She’s playful, but easy going at the same time. I’m so glad my friend Vic is going to adopt her!

Then I met little Venture, named for the fact that she’s the first in her family to venture out to checking things out.

I first fell for her marking, but then her spirit, friendliness, and heart just made me fall in love with her.  If I could adopt her, I would.  She’d be Elphie’s play buddy; I can picture them playing together.  I’d rename her Emma, after Emma Peel of The Avengers.  I think it fits her well.

It got to be where I hated people looking to adopt her, like she was mine.  But I know that can’t be, so I’d smile and talk about what a great kitten she is.

We joked she has that brown spot like a Phantom of the Opera mask, and the hind leg on that same size has that same color, the only paw that does.

She’s a real sweetie.

Her whole family is, and they’re all available for adoption, including her mom, a real sweetie named Callie, short for Caliope.

If you’re looking for a kitten or sweetie kitty, check out Venture, CallieWebster, Quinn, Datsun and Higgins.  Or any of our pets at Oasis Animal Shelter that need a home!  That link will show you our animals; this link will take you to the Oasis main web site.

If you are near Turnersville, NJ tonight…

…the Friendlys on the Black Horse Pike is having a charity night to benefit my animal shelter, Oasis. You don`t have to do anything special; just go to Friendlys between 5 and 8pm, and order like you would any other time. That`s it! No extra charges and no one in your face about the charity. But! Friendlys donates 15% of the total sales made in those 3 hours to our shelter! So you`re helping us out even by having some ice cream. (The shelter will have brochures in the lobby in case anyone wants any more information.) Thank you for your support!
