We’re delighted to report that the two dogs, Maggie and Albie, are out on a trial together. Fingers crossed that they’ve found their perfect match.

Our featured pet this week is Cassie, a petite, young tuxedo cat. Cassie has been described as the purrfect pet. She’s a sweet, affectionate lap cat who is very playful. What else could you want? She’s up to date and ready to go.

Our cat room residents include some younger cats. Teaser is a five-year old tuxedo who is very playful and has the softest coat. Elliot is also petite and black and white, but her markings are not tuxedo and her face is white. DeeDee is a shy, young calico and there’s also Alice is a petite, two-year old, silver tabby that gets along with dogs but not cats, and needs an experienced cat owner.

The Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard is here for our community. We’re always available and our door is always open should your adoption not be a perfect fit. 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.

The shelter phone number is 508-627-8662. Hours are: Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Thursday; 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
