Staff Reports • May 6, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Amelia Airdog is a 4-year-old, 51-pound, yellow, Labrador retriever mix. This sweet girl came to New Leash pregnant and shortly after arriving delivered seven healthy puppies. Her puppies have all been adopted, and it’s now time for Amelia to be in the spotlight. She is a sweet, gentle girl who enjoys being with people and appears to get along with other dogs. She is partially house trained. When Amelia first arrived she was suffering from demodectic mange, but she has been treated and is recovering nicely. Amelia faced another challenge too – she had a heart murmur which, if left untreated, would have drastically shortened her life. She recently had surgery to correct the murmur and is on the road to a full recovery so she can live a wonderful and long life she deserves. Come and meet Amelia. Amelia can be adopted for $85. Amelia is spayed, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. All New Leash on Life dogs must be adopted to families willing to have their pets be allowed inside, especially at night.

Yang is an 8-month-old, 6.5-pound, black-and-white domestic shorthair kitty.  She came to New Leash on Life along with Ying and Jewel, looking for their forever homes. Yang has just arrived and has adjusted great to all the changes in her life. She’s friendly and loves hanging out in the different cat condos in our open cat room. Yang is litter-box trained, spayed, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. She can be adopted for $100. All cats must be indoor only and shall not be declawed.
