Eagle-eyed followers of the ScPA Facebook page will have spotted the addition of photo albums of 5 puppies yesterday. This is the “shoes” litter. These puppies were not found straying, but were rather brought in by their owner for rehoming. Her dog had had an “unwanted encounter” with the neighbours male, and rather than give the pups away free to whomever wanted them, she decided to do the right thing and brig them to the ScPA, thus ensuring that they will all be identified and (in due course) neutered. Not only that, she has sterilised her female and paid for the neighbour’s male to be castrated.
Plus of course the fact that the pups were brought in by their owner means that there is no pound time. Yes, these pups can be adopted immediately! And that is exactly what happened to one of them today. 24 hours after arriving, little Sandale has left for a new home!
Wonderful news for her, of course, and we hope that her siblings don’t have long to wait either. In case you are interested, there is one brown female and one male, and two black and white males. All will be of medium size and naturally all are adorable!
Then just before the ScPA closed for the day (and for the week), we had another adoption. After just over three months Enny left for a new home. This young dog has received several visits from a family from Castelnaudary, and today they came back once again with their other dog to see how the two would get on. This was followed by a trip to the cat house, and then it was time for Enny to leave for her new home.
Enny will share her new life with another dog and a cat, as you will have guessed and with all the new activity her time at the refuge will soon be forgotten.
That is great news on which to end what started off as a pretty quiet week. Many thanks to today’s adopters, and we hope that next week sees many more people coming to offer a home to one of the many beautiful dogs of the ScPA.
