New Year Begins on Sour Note for Pets in Need

New Year Begins on Sour Note for Pets in Need

There is an old cliche: No good deed goes unpunished. When area residents try to do the right thing by helping a lost, injured or distressed animal, that old cliche can become all too true.

In recent months, several dogs and cats have been helped by Good Samaritans who reached out instinctively to help. For them, the priority is to handle the immediate need, and worry about the rest later.

Several area animals are in need of broader assistance from the public, however. They were taken in off busy streets, found wandering and lost in the neighborhood, injured in accidents or are simply excess baggage for an uncaring family.

Area Shelter Looking for Homes for Cats

And 'furr'ever homes for a host of cats and dogs, but in particular eight ktitens.

The Warner Robins branch of the Macon Purrs N Paws organization, told the Tri-County Monitor this weekend that they were running what they call a "red bow" special on adoptions on these special kittens from now until December 24.

According to officials with the organization, "They've been with us for quite sometime, and really deserve a loving home of their own. We'd love all of them to have their own special family by Christmas morning."

The cats are currently in foster homes than brought to Pet Smart during the week for adoption days.

 Warner Robins GA -- The missiles guarding the front lawn of the Museum of Aviation are receiving a new paint job.  The two missiles, a Matador and a Mace, were developed after World War II as “pilotless bombers” and sent overseas to West Germany, Korea and Taiwan.  The Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins Air Force Base had worldwide logistics management responsibility for the missiles throughout their service life.

Sonny is a sweet boy born to a feral mama during a bad storm. Rescuer has been handling the kittens since they were very young so they are quite used to people.

Little Dog with Big Heart Available at Humane Society of Houston County

Little Dog with Big Heart Available at Humane Society of Houston County

Our Foster dog is a tiny black and white Chihuahua named Marty that comes from the Humane Society of Houston County in Warner Robins Georgia. Marty is waiting patiently on the perfect "fur"ever home!

He is the cutest little six year old, six pound boy with a huge personality.  Marty's teeth were in poor condition when he came to the Humane Society, and after a dental treatment  he was only able to keep four of them.  This does not bother him in the least, and he does great with the teeth he has left.  He eats dry dog food with no problem and loves to chew on his soft toys.  Because he only has four teeth, it is a requirement of his adoption that he has his teeth cleaned once a year.  It is necessary to keep his remaining teeth healthy, as these are all he has.
