The Peterborough Humane Society has eight healthy, happy and busy potcake puppies that are now available for adoption.
These adorable pups from the Bahamas have been in the care of the Peterborough Humane Society for the past six weeks and are now ready to go to their forever homes. Puppies are not often available, so this is a wonderful opportunity for the community and the team at the PHS to enjoy the wonder of cute, wiggly puppies.
There has been much interest in these puppies—Embrace, Destra, Happy, Welcome, Beta, Alpha, Delta and Friend. The cost to adopt a puppy is $500. They have received their Rabies vaccine, are spayed or neutered, and have been microchipped.
The puppies are a variety of mixed breeds but will all grow to become medium sized dogs.
An application must be presented to the team at the shelter (385 Lansdowne Street East) in person between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Thursday, January 31st. (Note: No applications over the phone or email will be accepted.)
All applications will be reviewed by their Operations Manager to ensure that they find these beautiful pups their new forever home!
The Peterborough Humane Society advocates for the welfare of animals by improving their lives, alleviating suffering, rescuing, providing shelter, healing, facilitating adoption and reducing pet overpopulation.
UPDATED (April 14th): The 15 dogs rescued from the Korean Meat Farms through the great work of Humane Society International have arrived at Peterborough Humane Society and are currently being vetted by a team of highly trained volunteers led by Veterinarian Dr. Bruce Robertson.
Before being put up for adoption, the dogs will be settling into the shelter over the weekend so that they can properly be assessed and full medical assessments can be completed to ensure that they are ready for placement in their new forever home.
No dogs will be available for adoption this weekend, and PHS will be making an announcement when they are. An adoption application will be required for each interested family, ensuring that people who are considering an adoption of these lovely animals are aware of the implications of their breed and the special needs they will have due to their living status up until a month or so ago.
“This is a small example of the great work that our Peterborough team can do, especially once we are in our new facility and will have increased potential to provide the best in animal welfare both locally and globally,” says Shawn Morey, Executive Director of the Peterborough Humane Society.
