Help Clear the Shelters! Fat Cat, You-You and Maya Need Homes.
It’s #ClearTheShelters time with WAVY TV 10 and 97.3 The Eagle! Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center has joined this campaign again in hopes we might… wait for it… CLEAR THE SHELTER! All cat and small animal adoption fees are waived now through Sept. 19th and all dog adoption fees are 1/2 off.
They have LOTS of small animals available right now including gerbils, hamsters and rabbits.
I met two bonded cats, Fat Cat and You-You, who are about 15 years old and would love to find a home together.
They are sweet girls who came right up to me wanting lots of love. They purred the whole time and clearly just love people and each other.
They both need to lose a little weight and are on a special diet, which is easy to get from sources like the pet store or Chewy.com with a prescription from a vet. Other than that, they are very spry for their age (I couldn’t believe they are 15!) They followed me everywhere I went looking for some love.
I also met Maya, a 3 years old female lab mix.
Maya is housetrained and pretty low energy. Said to be good with all dogs both big and small. She does needs an adult home due to her pain and tolerance. The pain referenced is her back knees with a history of prior CCL Injuries.
In the shelter she has been on her best behavior and allowed all reasonable handling. At 106 pounds, she needs to lose some weight to help her cope with her knee issues, and if her new family can, seek a specialist to see if ortho surgery can help her quality of life long term. She also has some skin issues and they might be allergy related/chronic so work with your vet to manage her symptoms.
She is a very sweet quite girl who seems so sad to be at the shelter. Call the shelter at 757-385-4444 or go to their FB page to make an appointment to meet her.
