Furry Friend Friday With Leo!

leo 2
We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview and this one is extra special!  Leo is a three year-old boy that came all the way across the pond to find his forever home!  He’s up for adoption at Greyhound Friends, Inc in Hopkinton. So Leo, I hear that you came all the way across the pond to be here, is that correct? Yes it is!  I’m originally from Ireland so I came a long ways to find a forever home.  Believe it or not there are a lot of us greyhounds over in Ireland, but we aren’t really seen as pets so we often get transported to the U.S. or even Italy for homes.  I was with a great group over there called Limerick Animal Welfare and they worked very hard to get me over here and give me the chance to find a wonderful new home, so I...

Furry Friend Friday With Klondike!

Klondike
Forget Klondike bars, what would you do for a Klondike cat?  It doesn’t take much, this 7 year-old girl just wants a loving home and a warm lap to sit on.  She’s up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society and is a shy but friendly girl who’s ready to find her new best friend! So Klondike, what’s your favorite way to spend the day? Well I love being with people, and once I warm up to someone I love cuddling on their lap.  I can be shy at first, but with a little bit of time and patience I’ll never leave your side!  I also LOVE to sit in my cat house, it’s my favorite hide-out and makes me feel safe.  Sometimes I like to curl up in a blanket and just stay in there for the afternoon, but I still poke my head out whenever someone gets...

We are very excited to announce that we will be a Milestone Sponsor in this year’s Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) signature walk event!  ”Walk Like MADD” is a non-competitive, family and pet friendly 5K Walk and also a MADD Dash, certified 5K Run which seek to raise awareness and funds for MADD.  This organization has a simple mission; they seek to stop drunk driving, support the victims of it, and prevent underage drinking. Drunk driving not only risks the life of the driver and any passengers in their car, it also risks the lives of everyone else on the road.  The scary thing about that is that drunk driving and underage drinking are more common than you would think.  For example, did you know:  If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk in the past year had their own state, it would be the fifth largest...

Things To Do During A Power Outage

reading
Whether they’re caused by snow, rain, intense wind gusts, or another force of nature, power outages are a fact of life.  They may happen more often than we would like them to, but it’s always good to be prepared for them, especially if you have children.  It’s easy to get bored without modern conveniences, whether you’re a child or adult!  Next time you’re stuck at home without electricity, keep these ideas in mind so you don’t catch a case of cabin fever. Build a fort.  No matter how old you are, this is always a fun activity.  Grab spare sheets, pillows, chairs, and whatever else you need to make an epic fort where you can hide out for the rest of the day. Read a book.  Whether it’s a story for your children or you’re catching up on a novel you’ve been putting off reading because you’ve been binge... [...]

So Louie, what’s your favorite way to spend the day? Well I’m still a puppy so I LOVE to play!  I’m a big boy though, I weigh 70 pounds but I’m a gentle giant.  I love people, but since I’m so big I would need to be with people that know how to handle a big, energetic pup like me.  One of my favorite things to do is to go outside and run,...
