The thing about me is that I’m mostly beagle, which means I’ve got a nose that loves to follow a scent. It gets me and my fellow beagles into trouble sometimes. That and our loud, distinctive voice. We’re hounds and we love to cut loose with excitement when we hit a trail. Also, we don’t listen to anyone calling us when we’re following the scent of a deer or rabbit. It’s just our nature. But being chained up isn’t much of a solution, I can tell you that.
Hi, we’re Pollux and Castor, better known as the Gemini twins. Not that we’re identical, but we are certainly heavenly. We talk in the plural, because, well, we’re like royalty. But nice royalty–the kind you’d invite in for a cup of coffee. We have impeccable house manners (We’ve been living with a writer. She’s a slob, but we are very particular about how we conduct ourselves. We could give her some tips on housekeeping!)
Our story is kind of sad, but we’re hoping for a happy ending. Our mom was a full-blooded Siamese, but when she got pregnant, her owner didn’t want her anymore. So they drove her down this long, twisty road in the middle of a wildlife management area and tossed her out. Starving and hungry, she went to the only house around. She wasn’t there more than a week before she had us, along with two other brothers. The nice lady who owned the house fed us everyday, but she is very sick. She kept trying to help us by setting up traps; we were too smart for that. Our mom taught us to be wary of humans, because they had hurt her so much.
But the sick lady tried so hard every day, that she finally got us tame enough to put in a carrier so someone could help us, and here we are, looking for a permanent home. We’ve had our rabies shots and been neutered. And we were wormed, which was an awful experience. Just awful. But we’re feeling much better and in just a week have gained a whole lot of weight. We were pretty wormy, I guess you could say.
If you’ll give us a permanent home, then Miss Carolyn can go back and get our brothers. While we know we may be separated, we’d sure love to stay together. We play well, but we aren’t destructive in the house. We’re loving and we purr like crazy when you hold us. And we get along with other cats. We don’t mind dogs as long as they don’t scare us too much. And just think, how many people can say they have a Zodiac sign living in their home.
Please call 251-649-9456 if you’re interested in giving us a permanent home. We’re getting the rest of our vaccinations this week, so we are ready to move in and bring all our love to your house.
RESCUED FROM A SLITHERY SNAKE Once upon a time, way back in the swamp, there was a mama cat who found herself in the family way. She tried very hard to find a loving home to have her babies in, but the swamp was too dangerous. Every time she set out to hunt for a better place to have her babies, she was met by a moccasin snake or she heard the rustle of an alligator swishing through the mud. And then the time came for us to be born and she could do nothing but have us.
Lucky for us, though, someone heard our cries and caught us. Now, we’re living in a foster situation but we each need a permanent home. Mom has been caught and spayed, but we need help. We had a rough beginning, but we are loving kitties, and we appreciate love and attention.
Please help us find a permanent home. We know how bad life can be, and we’d be grateful for a home where snakes don’t try to eat us and someone will love us. Please call Sherry at 251-391-0959
FREE PUPPY I wish I could tell you my name, but I don’t have one. I’m only a few weeks old, barely old enough to be away from my mother. But I was left on the side of the road and happened to wander into a yard where a nice lady gave me some food. But she can’t keep me. She doesn’t want to name me because she knows I have to find a permanent home. Just take a look at me. I’m willing to give you my entire heart. For a little bit of care and food, you can have all the love I have to give.
Please help me find a permanent home. If you’re interested in a healthy young pup, give Missy Howell a call at 680-1033.
Juliet, Juliet! Where forth art thou?”
My name is Romeo and I’m a two-year-old Golden Retriever. Some would think my name Romeo is a misnomer, because I’ve actually had a little surgical procedure called neutering, but let me explain. Romeo was a lover, and lover can be defined by temperament as well as action. And if that’s the definition, I sure do qualify. I have all the love in the world. Unconditional. All I need is a human family to give it to.
I ended up at Lost Without You in a hard way. I don’t understand what I did or why the men were so cruel to me, but they threw me over the fence. I landed hard, and it scared the Hance family a lot. They thought my back was broken. Poor Sherry was so upset, but let me say that her tears healed me. I’d never had a human who cared what happened to me before that, and Sherry really cared. She took me to the vet and discovered that my back was merely bruised. I’m okay.
I have a secret to tell you. I really love kids. I do. If I could just have my own little human…well, let’s just say life would be perfect then. And I also like other canine playmates. In fact, I like almost everyone and everything. Because I’ve been mistreated most of my life, I tend to get a little excited when someone takes the time to play with me, but I’ll get over that. I promise. Once I’m sure that I have a permanent home where someone will pet me and play with me, I’ll be the best dog ever.
I’ve had all my vaccinations. And I’m a good boy. Give me a try. Call Sherry at ‘Lost Without You’ Animal Rescue, Theodore, Alabama,251-391-0959. Open your heart and your home and you’ll get more love than you ever thought possible
