Pets: Where to Get ‘Em and Where to Take ‘Em

By Sherry McCormick-Hawkins

I am the proud Mother of a spoiled Chihuahua that I rescued from a Virginia animal shelter in late 2010. “Little Bit” is the first dog I ever owned – or does he own me?  Either way, I’m so glad that I took that first step and finally adopted a dog.  He has given me a lot of love and laughs over the past 2 years.  I also have a lovebird named “Squeak” that I received as a birthday present in 1999. His beautiful feathers and intelligence never fail to amaze me.

We here at WVyourWay love animals and want to see them go to good homes. On our Pinterest page we post pictures of adoptable animals in West Virginia. It is our hope that more and more cats and dogs will find forever families. If you live in the Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia consider contacting the Greenbrier Humane Society [Businesses – Animal Care > Humane Society]. They have a wide variety of cats, dogs, puppies and kittens. They also have several adopt-a-thons throughout the year where people find wonderful pets.  If you know of other animal shelters in the state, ask them to register with us so people can find them too.

If you decide to adopt a pet they will need additional care. “Seneca Trail Animal Hospital” [Businesses – Animal Care > Animal Hospital > Boarding > Veterinarians] in Lewisburg has a friendly staff and they can help your companion animal with their medical, dental and surgical needs. They even offer boarding services as well as emergency care. If you are visiting in our beautiful area and need care for your pet they will do their best to fit you into their schedule.
