Our Pets of the Week are Mandi, a six-year-old and Buttercup, a seven-month-old Dachshund mix. Mandi loves playing with toys and being in cozy closures liker her basket. While she would do well in a home with other cats, she likes her independence. Buttercup is shy but she is also curious. She is not house-trained yet, but she does have good manners. For more information on either Mandi or Buttercup, or to see other pets, go to www.ny-petrescue.org.
