Our pets of the week this week are Rocco and Meadow, adorable and very friendly Guinea Pigs. Rocco is a short-haired, tri-color male who is about six years old and really loves his veggies, but isn’t a fan of fruit. Meadow is a long-haired, light tri-color girl who is only a year old and loves to sit in your lap and get some loving. Both are very sweet and have been hand raised. Either one, or both, are ready and waiting to join you in your home.

The next nail clinic takes place on Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.; walks-ins only, $20 cash or check. And it was another productive visit from All Pet’s Medical Center last Saturday. If you would like to schedule an appointment for your pet, please contact them at 508-743-8338. Due to scheduling issues with the Steamship they may not be able to return to the Island until September. Stay tuned for updated information.

Did you know that if someone has a financial need, and/or their pet’s life is in danger, we are able to assist with payment going directly to the veterinary practice.

Also, if anyone is in need of cat food, dog food, or a crate, we have plenty and are happy to share. The Island Food Pantry also has pet food for those in need. Just give us a call during regular shelter hours: 508-627-8662.
