Adopt a friend

Tyler Murphy

Last week the Evening Sun posted two animals from the SPCA that were available for adoption in the paper’s Community section.

A few days later they both were adopted. Larry, the long haired and heavy house cat, and Madison, the shepherd puppy with large lovable paws, are both in new homes.

It makes me take a second to think about how much of an impact publishing can have. The puppy was a heart breaker no doubt about it but Larry was at the shelter for weeks and then a few days after the add ran he found a family.

All we need to do now is suspend all other news printing for a day and fill the paper with pictures of the 76 Pomeranians (and one bulldog) that were taken into custody by the shelter.

The shelter has nearly a full house and not just because of the abused Pomeranians but even without them the dog and cat kennels are filled with animals yearning for an owner. Keep an eye on the Community page for more available animals before the week is out.

Thanks you to who adopted Larry and Madison, I’m sure the SPCA appreciates it.
