On August 10th, The Local Live held a live pet adoption version of the Round Table during the Mamaroneck Avenue Block Party. NY Pet Rescue has announced that four out of the five puppies that were showcased have found their forever homes. With that happy news, here are our Pets of the Week, Cub, a two-and-a-half year old Chow Mix and Cupcake, a handsome Tabby cat. Cub, who weighs about forty-five pounds, loves long walks and car rides. He can be a bit anxious and would do best in a suburban home with a female dog or a quiet, appropriate dog. Houses with cats are not recommend. Cupcake is a real charmer and is also a feline dynamo since she is very playful. She has beautiful and striking markings. She would do best as the only cat in an active household that does not have small children. To adopt either Cub or Cupcake, or to find out about other pets, go to ny-petrescue.org.
