Buddy is a tan, black and white cairn terrier mix. He had a nice life and was kept inside as a lap dog, but his owner died. He was given to a home that kept him tied outside and finally turned into a shelter. Buddy is now a Castaway Critter and he is looking to regain a permanent, loving home. Buddy is believed to be about 7 years old, but that is not old for a small dog since they often live to be in their mid-teens. He is adjusting well to his new foster home and loves to snuggle and be held. He barks when it’s time to go outside and loves to follow his foster mom everywhere! He needs a trip to the groomer for a hair cut but he is clean and smells good! He listens well but does beg for food both at the table and at the counters. Buddy is neutered and up-to-date on basic shots. If you can provide Buddy with a new and loving life as an inside lap dog, contact his foster mom Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online at castawaycritters.org
Lonnie is about 8 months old. He is a beautiful short-haired cat that is solid charcoal gray with gold eyes.

Lonnie adapts very well to new situations and he is always out and about with an outgoing personality. He purrs easily and loves human attention. Lonnie loves to play, by himself or with other cats. Lonnie wants to be your cat’s best friend! Lonnie is up to date on all vaccines and tested neg for FIV and FELV as well as neutered. He faithfully uses the litter box and has no other behavioral issues. As a kitten, Lonnie was found with an injured toe that had to be amputated.

We just got this information from Castaway Critters and we wanted to share it with you: “You’d have to search long and hard to find a cat as affectionate as Garfield. Lucky for us, he’s right here in Harrisburg! Garfield was literally thrown out of his home when his owner decided to abandon her 4 cats. Fortunately, kind neighbors found homes for 3 of them, and Castaway Critters took Garfield. And did we hit the bonanza with this guy! He’s very affectionate and loves attention. He often jumps in his foster mom’s lap and snuggles in. He sleeps with her at night — all night. And he follows his foster mom all over the place, sometimes to the point where she has to watch where she walks. He’s the perfect litter box user. Garfield, who is probably around 1 1/2 to 2 years old, has never known anything other than living with other cats, so he must go to a home that has cats. He hasn’t buddied up with any of his foster housemates, and he doesn’t play with them, but he’s ALWAYS in a room with other cats, often lying on the floor close to one or more of them. He just seems to be one of those cats that needs the stimulation or comfort of being with other cats. Garfield is neutered, current on his shots, microchipped, has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, and is eligible for the Pumpkin Pal Special adoption donation of $25. For more information on this very loveable young guy, contact his foster mom Annette in Harrisburg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-7221 or apply online at www.castawaycritters.org“.
