Ten puppies available! Try to choose just one
Why adopt just one puppy when you could adopt ... um, ten?
OK, ten might be a bit much (look at all the flak the Octomom is getting just for eight!), but when it comes to a litter of puppies, it's almost impossible to choose among them.
Countryside Humane Society has a litter of ten 8-week-old Treeing Walker Coon Hounds. Their mother is a Treeing Walker in residence at the shelter; their father ... well, he's somewhere, the cad.
The pups are social and playful, who will grow up to be large sized, active dogs. The shelter also has three German shorthair mixed puppies available.
The fee for adopting a puppy is $150, which includes spaying or neutering, vaccinations, worming, microchip and more. With any animal adopted under four months of age, a deposit is required, which is refunded when the animal is brought in a four months for neutering.
Countryside Humane Society is located at 2706 Chicory Road, or call (262) 554-6699.
And for those of you who already have a female dog, keep this in mind: Spring is often the season for the births of puppies and kittens. Countryside Humane Society has a "Prevent a Litter" program: Racine County residents may bring in their eight-week-old litter of kittens or puppies and surrender them for $10 -- and the shelter will spay the mother for free, as long as she is current on vaccinations.
