Too Chicken To Celebrate National Puppy Day In Wyoming?

"slow your roll on getting a puppy. You will have the dog for a lifetime, check the shelters on a regular basis"Thursday, March 23 is National Puppy Day so I tried to see who has the cutest puppy.

Spoiler Alert!

None of the shelters I tried have any puppies,

 

Christina in Laramie said they had no puppies at this time. Craig in Casper said they had a lot of them last week, but now they have none.

Niki, at Cheyenne Animal Shelter said they are out for now, but they will have some soon. I figured springtime would see a lot of baby animals, and it does I’m sure. Just not domesticated cats and dogs I guess. They’ll have litters any time of year.

 

So what about getting a puppy from the store? This can be tricky. You don’t want to support cruel puppy mills that sometimes terribly mistreat animals. But PetSmart has Everyday Adoption Centers, a part of a nationwide initiative to rescue homeless pets. So far, 7,355,809 lives saved. .

 

I suggest you slow your roll on getting a puppy. You will have the dog for a lifetime, check the shelters on a regular basis. There will be plenty of puppies. You could be buying into the myth “My family needs a young puppy or kitten, not an old, ‘secondhand’ animal.” But please consider an older animal, (it was a puppy once…) There is a different story for each animal there.

 

In Casper, Poncho is a 6 Years Old Neutered Male Chihuahua that came to the Casper Humane Society because his owner went into a nursing home. What an abrupt and shocking change that must have been. He is a chunky, little guy and he has lots of love to give. Craig or any of the fine folks there will be happy to help you find a furry friend for life.

Cheyenne Animal Shelter can connect you with 4 legged love. Apollo is a 7 year old male Boxer/Shepherd that needs a home.

If my wife and I were home more, we would get a dog, but since we are not, it wouldn’t be fair to the dog. So we got cats from the shelter. Meet Finster, ruler of our household.

BTW, Cheyenne Animal Shelter has a couple of chickens for adoption, this is Dory.
