Here is what his friends at Little Buddies Adoption and Humane Society have to say about him:

Because of allergies, his previous family with whom he lived for his entire life up to now, had to give him up. Cuddles is nine years old. Those looking for a pair of cats might want to consider Cuddles’ wonderful brother, Fred.

Luna Petunia

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

Meet Luna Petunia, a happy, fun-loving dog looking for an active home.

Here is what his friends at Boxer Rescue and Adoption Inc. have to say about her:

I’m just the silly little girl that my first family called Luna Petunia. I’m happy and full of vinegar! I’m about six months old and am very, very active. I want a family to keep me busy, because a tired puppy is a very good dog.

I love to run and play with my rescue mom’s Boxers. My tail is always wagging and wagging, and I am a joyful dog, but I do need training. I am crate trained, am good about taking treats nicely and my favorite dog walker says I’m very, very busy . . . seeing all the sights and sniffing all the neat things along my walk. No matter what, I won’t get into the doggie pool. That looks like fun . . . for some other dog!

If you’d like to meet me, email [email protected] for an adoption application and then arrange to stop by Reston, Va., to meet me. I know, I know. I’m not a Boxer, but I needed help finding a new home, so I’m an honorary Boxer!

Pet of the Week: Winnie

by RestonNow.com Sponsor — October 5, 2016 at 11:30 am 0

Winnie

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

Meet Winnie, a 1-year-old Collie who is looking for a forever home. Here is what the folks at Collie Rescue Inc. have to say about her:

Winnie is a young sable-and-white collie girl weighing in at around 50 pounds. She is one year old.

Winnie is full of love and playfulness with everyone. She has yet to meet a dog she does not like, and will frolic and play with other young pups, while trying to get the older dogs to join her in a collie romp, which is usually more like a high-speed game of tag.

Winnie enjoys spending time outside and loves to play with toys. She is very sweet with all the people she meets, including kids, but can be a bit enthusiastic in her greetings, so we are working on teaching her not to jump up.

Winnie was raised in a loving home, so she is very trusting and willing to please. Her ideal new home will provide her with ample playtime and a family who can spend time channeling her youthful exuberance through training and structured exercise.

Like most young herding types, she loves the challenge of puzzles and treat-dispensing toys and will work to get every last bit out.

Winnie will be a fine addition to a family who enjoys spending time outdoors with their dog, and would be extra happy if there were another dog to be her playmate. If she were an only-dog, since she is still a puppy at heart, she would appreciate regular organized playdates with friendly dogs in her neighborhood.

She is spayed. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath.

Are you and Winnie a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

Pet of the Week: Jingle

Jingle

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Jingle, a cat offered for adoption by Fancy Cats Rescue Team. Here is what they have to say about him (in his own “words!”)

Hi there, my name’s Jingle, I’m a very cuddly, talkative, and loving boy. I like snuggling up with you, purring in contentment while I look up at you with my “Puss in Boots” eyes.

I like to sit in your lap or lay on your chest and make biscuits with my paws. I’ll even curl up next to you in your arms while you sleep, like I’m a teddy bear. I give great head butts, I’ll rub up against everyone hoping for more petting. I’m always right there at the door greeting you when you come home with head butts and happy meows.

I really like catnip toys and my kitty tunnel too, I roll around on the floor with my toys and then I’ll walk around in my crinkle tunnel exploring and playing.

I have medium-length fur, I keep fluffing out more each day now that I’m on a better diet and in a happy foster home. I was found in central Virginia when I was brought to the shelter. I was wearing a collar and had clearly been someone’s pet before.

I’m such a sweet boy, I don’t know why no one ever came to claim me. My time was just about up when I was rescued and came to Virginia. I get along well with other dogs, I live with several of them in my foster home and we all get along great. I’m laid back and non-dominant, I’m happy to be best friends with everyone I meet!

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application and a representative will get back to you shortly to answer any questions you may have. The application can be found at this link.

Are you and Jingle a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
