For the first full week in August, we are featuring a pair of playful, prancing, positively precious Pomeranians! Just like all the great comedy duos, this pair has the short, round one and the absurdly tall, gangly one Sammy, the more rotund of the two, is a black, 8 year old, neutered male, and his best buddy Rusty, tall and rust colored, is a 7 year old, neutered male, came to us when their owner passed away. It took several days for these sweet boys to get over the shock of it all, but when they did, they proved to be bouncing bundles of fun! Sammy and Rusty love to play, know how to sit for a cookie, love to go for walks, and absolutely love other dogs! These handsome fellows may take a little longer to warm up to strangers, but when they do they dazzle and charm everyone they meet. If you are looking for a pair of middle aged, small breed dogs, and don’t mind the upkeep of two times the Pomeranian coat, please ask to meet the Dynamic Duo of Sammy and Rusty!
The fee to adopt Sammy and Rusty together is only $55.00, which includes a vet visit (generously supplied by our local veterinarians), microchip, flea treatment, wormer and vaccinations, two free training sessions with Dog E University’s Tammy Boysun, and a free bag of dog food courtesy of the Feed Corral, and all animals are spayed and neutered prior to adoption.
Please come and visit all the animals at your Lincoln County Animal Shelter, located at 510 NE Harney St. in Newport (just east of the Fairgrounds). Hours are: Tuesday through Saturday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Also, if you can help us restock our pet food pantry for our Meals on Wheels and Food Bank programs, that will really help. We need wet cat food and we distribute hundreds of pounds of pet food each month to those in need. For additional information on our available animals, or on volunteering, please call the Shelter during business hours at 265-6610 & press option 6.
