Have you ever dropped a vase on the floor and watched it break into dozens of pieces? If it’s one of your favorites, you utter a four letter word, maybe string a couple of them together and survey the wreckage.

Recently while in the process of going through years of “saving” items I ran across this York News-Times clipping. I really have no idea the date it was published, but I know it was more than 25 years ago. I just know that it should be shared again ….
Have you noticed? Have you noticed each and every pet cared for and adopted out by York Adopt-a-Pet has an interesting and nearly always meaningful name? Some animals arrive at the shelter with a name of their very own, having been given it by loving pet parents who for whatever reason relinquished their pet.
Our first two babies arrived recently with their mother, Mariah, who donned her Easter bonnet for a photo shoot. Thanks go out to Diane Wolfe for her talent in capturing each cat and kitten at its most endearing moment.
As most of you know York Adopt a Pet takes advantage of the Hearts United Organization that has a very low spay/neuter program. You can visit their website at hua.org. Their moto is dedicated to the relief of suffering animals. They have a few cats but deal mostly with dogs and are such advocates of shutting down puppy mills. They have been so generous and helpful in the last 15 years that we have been taking cats to their location between Nebraska City and Auburn.
Meet Charlie, he’s a big guy; a Chocolate Lab and German Shorthair mix. A blend the pup can thank for the gray chin whiskers which make him appear much older than his youthful 3 years.
In my last article I wrote about a cat that was found with a chunky soup can stuck on her head and was rescued by a woman who has in the past rescued several other desperate cats and kittens in need. I dubbed her the angel of mercy. I am happy to say that this sweet little cat, who was destined to a long and painful death prior to being rescued, was adopted by another angel of mercy when this past week Richard came to Adopt a Pet and adopted little Angie.
