Adoption Show at Annapolis PETSMART Sunday

Oldies But Goodies (OBG) Cocker Spaniel Rescue is partnering with PETSMART stores throughout the region to showcase the dogs they have available for adoption. 

On Sunday, August 8, one of these events will take place 12–3 p.m. at the Annapolis PETSMART at 2601 Housley Road, off Rt. 450.  (Click on MAP.)  Turn at Best Buy, opposite Home Depot.

Dog - cocker spanielThe need for families to adopt pets is even greater now than usual, with so many pet-owners displaced by foreclosure.  Over-crowded animal shelters in some states are literally loading up vans full of pets and taking them to shelters in other parts of the country where foreclosures aren’t so high and abandoned pets are not so many.  In fact, I read recently where the Anne Arundel County SPCA had accepted many of them for adoption.

One of the things I like about OBG is that dogs awaiting adoption are not warehoused in shelters, but they’re cared for by foster families in their own homes.  In many cases, foster families have pets of their own, so this arrangement helps the future adoptee become (or remain) socialized with other animals, as well as with people.

For a preview of dogs available for adoption, visit the OBG website.  You’ll find irresistible photos and descriptions like this one:

If I had to describe myself in one word, it would be “snugglebunny”… I often ask my mom to pick me up and when she does I like her to hold me and then she puts her nose to mine… and then I give her a quick kiss!  I follow her footsteps on the floor…

Really, who could resist?  If one of the dogs on the website catches your eye, OBG will make an effort to take him/her to the show –  if not, they’ll make arrangements for you to have a private introduction.

Don’t miss this event on Sunday at PETSMART in Annapolis on Sunday if you’ve been thinking about getting a dog.  Sure, puppies are cute, but they’re also expensive.  Adoption fees are low and there’s a real need for families like yours to welcome an older dog into your family.  Just think… you probably won’t have to worry about house-breaking or chewed furniture legs, as you would with a puppy.  Now those are two very good reasons to adopt a cocker spaniel!
