"Take Me Home--Please!"
Some of the “guests” at the Euclid Animal Shelter, like the stray dogs and cats rounded up by Animal Control Officer Ann Mills, are harder to place in new homes than others. As a result they often endure long waits, confined to their cramped cages, hoping that a kind individual or family will stop by one day and decide to adopt them.
Often they are friendly, frisky animals who would make wonderful pets. Animals like Kobe and Trixie, for example. Kobe is a two-year-old male Bulldog-Boston Terrier mix, while Trixie is a female Chihuahua with a handicap—she has only three normal legs. Her small fourth leg was the result of a birth defect. Both Trixie and Kobe were picked up as strays.
Anyone who might consider adopting either Trixie or Kobe can stop in at the shelter, located at 25100 Lakeland Boulevard, between Babbitt Road and East 260th Street). The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 4 p.m., and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. For information, call Officer Ann Mills at (216) 289-2057. You can also e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, Kobe and Trixie, and their friends, will be waiting patiently.
