In an effort to find homes for animals up for adoption, state Sen. Patricia Ritchie, who represents Oswego County, is teaming up with local animal shelters to feature “Pets of the Week” from Central and Northern New York on her website and Facebook page.
“There are many people who bring pets home in December as holiday gifts who are now heading back to work and school and finding that they don’t have the time to dedicate to caring for an animal,” Ritchie said.
“Many of those animals end up at local shelters,” she said.
The Oswego County Humane Society is helping in Ritchie’s effort.
This week, the featured pet is Cupid, a male Rottweiler mix who is 6 months old. He is house trained, and described by the Oswego County Humane Society as a pet that likes to play, but has a calm side too.
For more information on Cupid and other pets available for adoption, call the Oswego County Humane Society at 207-1070.
