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 close, just so I can see what’s going on.

Do you have a favorite treat?

Would you believe it if I told you that I love Klondike bars? No? Well you’re right, even though my name is Klondike I’m not a fan of the ice cream bars, they’re too cold if you ask me.  I would much rather have some tuna!

Is there anything that scares you?

Well I do get nervous when there are loud noises, like loud bangs, screams, thunder, things like that.  I much rather prefer peace and quiet.  The shelter life has also been tough on me, I’ve been here since January and I’m definitely ready to be in a warm home where I get all of the attention to myself.  The shelter noises can be a little scary sometimes, but the staff here are so nice and let me hang out in the office with them, which is a big help!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Since I’m afraid of loud noises, I would definitely want to go somewhere quiet, so that probably means no children as they would make me nervous.  I would be a great companion, so for anyone that’s looking for a new best friend, I’m your girl!  Other than quiet and adults only, I could go anywhere.  I love to curl up next to my favorite humans and relax, it’s the simple things in life that make me happy.

Klondike, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

I’m a pretty healthy girl, but even the healthiest of us need to go to the doctors.  Whether we get sick or have an accident of some kind, you can never predict these things but you can be prepared for them with pet insurance.

Klondike makes a good point, and it’s always better to be prepared for the unexpected than to be left with a vet bill that will clean out your savings account.  Pet insurance is a great way to make sure you can get your furry friend the vet care they need without breaking the bank.  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Lincoln!

lincoln

Ready for a Furry Friend Friday interview?  Lincoln has been excited for his turn in the spotlight all week!  This 6 year-old boy is energetic, friendly, and ready for his forever home.  He’s currently up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter and has been there for about a month.  If you think Lincoln could be your new best friend pay him a visit!

So Lincoln, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I’m very energetic, so I love to stay active.  I like playing outside, going for walks, exploring the great outdoors, and just trying anything fun, I’m very adventurous! You might think that because of my age I might start to slow down at this point, but not me.  I’m still young at heart and am willing to prove it!  Stop by and pay me a visit and you’ll see what I mean!

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

I absolutely love to chase balls!  I’d have to say those are my favorite toys, they’re so versatile, they can bounce, roll, or get thrown.  They’re basically a jack of all trades compared to other toys.

What about a favorite place to walk?

We’re very lucky here at the shelter, we have a ton of volunteers that come to walk us every day.  They bring us outside to these fields next to a bunch of woods and I love it there.  I get to smell the breeze, and become one with nature, it’s the best.

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, I’m not afraid of anything, at least nothing comes to mind right away.  Beagles are a pretty tough dogs, we don’t scare too easy and make great watch dogs.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well I love all adults, so I would be great in a home with an active couple, or even a family with older children.  I love playing with kids, but would probably be better with bigger ones that are 10 and up.  I also get along great with my fellow canines, so if you already have a dog I’m sure we would become friends right away!

Lincoln, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Not only are beagles tough, we’re smart too, and I can spot a good deal when I see one!  Pet insurance seems smart to me because it’s inevitable that any pet will need to go to the vet, and if something’s wrong with us, the bill will be pretty big if you don’t have pet insurance.

Lincoln is right, inevitably most pets will have to go to the vet because they’re having a health issue or had an accident that injured them.  The bills associated with injuries and illnesses can climb pretty high pretty fast, but pet insurance will allow you to make a small payment each month so that your pet can be covered if they need to go to the vet, and you won’t need to break the bank.  Call one of our agents today for a free quote and take the first step on the road to protecting your furry friend!

 

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Wolf!

wolf

We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview, and today we got to chat with Wolf!  No he’s not a real wolf, he’s actually a 4 year-old greyhound up for adoption at Greyhound Friends, Inc. in Hopkinton.  This handsome boy has been in the shelter for a few weeks and would love for you to stop by and visit him!

So Wolf, I hear you’re not originally from Massachusetts, is that correct?

Yes, you’re very right!  I’m originally from Florida, it’s much warmer down there but I’m happy to be in Massachusetts and am ready to start my new life!

What’s your favorite way to spend the day?

I’m a very laid back guy, I enjoy the simple things.  All I really need to have fun is a warm bed, one of my people petting me, and a treat or two of course!  My perfect day would consist of a long nap, a walk, and then cuddles for the rest of the day, I love being around people!

Do you have a favorite treat?

I’ll take anything I can get!  I’m a real foodie and love trying new things, so anything you have for me I’ll be more than happy to sample.

Is there anything that scares you?

I’m not really a fan of loud noises, like thunder or fireworks.  They make me a bit jumpy, but as long as I have someone to pet me and make me feel better I’ll be fine.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well since I love to be around people, I would enjoy going to a home where someone is around a lot.  If you work from home that would be perfect, I’ve been told I’m a very good computer helper!  I can get along with anyone, I’m a very nice guy and they say that greyhounds are the best of both worlds, meaning we can either be active or just lay around all day.  I’m definitely on the calmer side, but I still have a spring in my step and like a nice walk.  If you think I could be your new best friend stop by and say hi!

Wolf, why do you think pet insurance is a good think for all pet parents to consider?

Well, pets don’t plan on getting hurt or sick (Then again, who does?), but it still happens.  It seems like pet insurance is a good way to make sure you can get your pet the vet care they need if they unexpectedly get sick or have an accident.

We couldn’t have put it any better ourselves.  No one plans on getting sick or hurt, and pets should be covered for these situations just like the rest of your family is.  Pet insurance is an affordable investment that will ensure your pet gets proper vet care should they need it.  Call one of our agents today for a free pet insurance quote and take the first step in protecting your furry friend for life!

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Jinxy!

jinxy1

Friday’s are always fun when we get to interview a new furry friend!  Today I got to chat with Jinxy, an 11 year-old girl up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society.  This girl loves to cuddle and has been at the shelter since November, so she is definitely ready to find a forever family to call her own!

So Jinxy, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I’m an older gal so I like to relax a lot, my favorite way to do that is by laying near the window with my belly up in the air and soaking up some sun.  I love being around people and I absolutely love being petted, but not picked up.  As much as I like to relax, I still enjoy playing with my toys every day!

jinxy2

Do you have a favorite toy?

I love my scratching post!  I mean I really love all toys, but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be my scratching post for sure.  I also love catnip, so if you have that and a scratching post too, you might be my new best friend!

Is there anything that scares you?

There isn’t really anything that scares me, but there are things that annoy me, such as other animals, I would prefer to be the only pet in my new home.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well for starters, one where I would be the only pet.  Other than that my only request is for a nice, sunny spot by the window where I can relax and nap, okay and maybe a few toys to play with too.  I love all people, big and small, old and young.  I’m a smart girl and am fully trained, and I’m very affectionate, I would love to find a home sooner than later!

Jinxy why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well I’m an old and wise lady, and I know that pet insurance is a good option because it means you’re prepared for the unexpected, and it’s always better to be prepared than unprepared.  Whether pets are young or old, we can always get sick or have an accident when we least expect it.  Pet insurance would ensure that we could get all the vet care we need without breaking the bank.

When our pets have an unexpected accident or illness, of course we want to provide them with the best possible care, but that can be hard to do without breaking the bank.  With pet insurance, you can make sure that your furry friend can get the care they need without putting you in debt.  Call one of our agents today for a free quote and take the first step to protecting your furry friend!

 

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Spoone!

spoone

Happy Furry Friend Friday!  Are you ready for all of the snow we’re supposed to get on Monday?  Spoone is ready for it but not exactly excited, this 5 year old boy is originally from Georgia so is used to much warmer weather!  He’s a cute German Shepherd mix up for adoption at Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem and is excited to be here and find his forever family!

So Spoone, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

Even though I’m the oldest dog here in the shelter, I can still keep up with the young pups and I love being outside playing.  I get along great with the other dogs here and love hanging with them, but if they’re busy I love to run and chase my tennis ball.  My friends here at the shelter say that I really get excited when they play keep away with me, it’s one of my favorite games!  

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

My tennis ball is by far my favorite!  See it in my picture with me? I never want to let it go once I have it!  I could chase that thing for hours, I’m pretty easily entertained and just an overall happy guy, but when I have my tennis ball I’m the happiest dog in the world!

Is there anything that scares you?

Nothing that I can think of and nothing that the staff here have observed, like I said, I’m an overall happy guy and don’t let too many things get to me.  I’m even happy to be here in the shelter!  Of course I’d rather be in my own home with my own family, but I’m able to make the most out of any situation.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Who wouldn’t love me?  Don’t I look like I should be lounging on your couch right about now?  I would love to go to a fun-loving family that would love to play fetch with me and my beloved tennis ball.  I love any and all people, big or small but because I am a bigger boy I would probably be best around children ages 10 and up.  Have another dog?  I’m sure we would get along great and would love for you to pay me a visit if you think I could be part of your family!

Why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well in my short life, I’ve lived in a few different places and seen A LOT.  I’ve seen a lot of great things and some things that weren’t so great.  I think that you should be prepared for anything, life is so unpredictable but if you have pet insurance you can at least be prepared to get your furry friend proper vet care without breaking the bank if the time comes.

Spoone is a very worldly gentleman, and is right about life being unpredictable.  We never know what may happen or what direction life may bring us in, but with pet insurance you can be sure that your furry friend will be able to get the vet care they need should the unexpectedly get sick or have an accident.  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote today and make sure your furry friend is protected!

Furry Friend Friday With Rory!

rory

Friday wouldn’t be complete without a Furry Friend Friday interview!  Am I right?  Rory certainly thinks so!  This girl is about 2 years old and is a pit bull/hound mix up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter.  She’s been there for about a month and is looking for a family that likes to have fun that she can call her own.

So Rory, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I have A LOT of energy, I’m still a young girl after all and I love being outside playing.  We have a fenced in yard here at the shelter and even get to go for walks on the nearby trails!  That’s always fun.  I also love other dogs, they’re so much fun to play with!  I have been told that I play a little rough though, it’s not on purpose I’m just a bigger, athletic girl and I forget my own strength sometimes.  After a day of playing I love to snuggle with my people and relax.

Do you have a favorite toy or treat?

I love all toys and treats, I don’t discriminate!  You should see the toy basket I have here at the shelter, I think I have more toys than anyone else!

Is there anything that scares you?

Do I look like I’m scared of anything?  Only kidding, even big, tough dogs like me can be afraid!  Nothing really comes to mind, the only thing that makes me nervous is the thought that I will never find my forever family, I really hope they show up soon!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

A family that loves to play!  I would love to go with a family that is active like me, and a fenced in yard would probably be best.  I’m good with other dogs and teenagers, don’t get me wrong, I love little kids but as I said, sometimes I forget my own strength when I’m playing and I wouldn’t want to accidentally knock over a little one!  I am very well mannered and know a lot of commands, I would be a great family pet when someone gives me the chance!

Rory, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well, people get hurt or sick unexpectedly, and pets can too.  If humans didn’t have insurance, the doctor’s office would be very expensive, and it’s the same with pets and the vet.  We may not be able to pay for it ourselves, but if you cover us we’ll pay you back by being your best friend!

Pets are our best friends, and are part of the family, so they should be protected like every family member.  Pet insurance will make sure that your pets can get the health care they need when the time comes, without breaking the bank.  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote and take the first step on the road to protecting your furry friend!

 

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Bran!

_MG_5179 (1)

Still don’t have a Valentine for Valentine’s Day?  Look no further!  This face is about as cute as they come and Bran is looking for his new best friend!  This cute little puppy is about 6 months old and is up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter.

So Bran, I hear you are not originally from Massachusetts, is that true?

You’re right, I came all the way here from Virginia!  I was a stray there and then got rescued and brought to good old Massachusetts and love it so far!  I’m sure I will love it even more once I find my forever home and can go on adventures with my new family!

What’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I have a lot of energy so I like to do a lot of different things.  I am very playful and love toys!  We are very lucky here at the shelter because we get new toys every day, so I always have tons of options to choose from!  I also love being around people and getting my belly rubbed.  The staff here are very accommodating and love to give me belly rubs, although I don’t give them much of a choice, whenever they come into the room I always roll over on my back so they can scratch my belly, they think it’s so funny!

Is there anything that scares you?

Not that I can think of, I’m pretty lucky and haven’t been around too many scary things in my time, so I think of myself as Mr. Tough Guy.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well I would really get along with anyone!  Dogs, kids, you name it and I’ll get along with it!  I would just need to be with a family that understands my needs as a puppy and who know how much work I can be!  I will need to go to some training classes to perfect my manners but I’m a smart puppy and can pick things up quickly.  I would also love to go with a family that likes to do fun things like play ball and go on hikes or to fun, new places!

Bran, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well I’m not too old so I don’t have much experience with things like this but it sounds like something that could be pretty important.  Family is family whether they have two legs or four, and all family members should have the same protection if they get sick and need to go to the doctor’s office or the vet.

Bran is a smart cookie, and he’s right when he says that family is family whether they have two legs or four.  Get your furry friend the gift of pet insurance this Valentine’s Day and show them how much you love them!  Call our agents for a free quote and take the first step on the path to protecting your furry friend.  You can’t prevent accidents, but you can be prepared for them with pet insurance.

If you think Bran is cute, take a look at his friend Alan!  You can read his Furry Friend Friday interview here.

 

Furry Friend Friday With Transy

transy

Who’s ready to kick off their weekend with a Furry Friend Friday interview? Transy is!  This handsome older gentleman is a beagle mix and is ready to find a best friend to share his golden years with.  He’s about 7 or 8 years old and is up for adoption at Greyhound Friends, Inc in Hopkinton.  How can you resist that face?  Stop by and pay Transy a visit if you think you two could be a match made in heaven.

So Transy, what’s your favorite thing to do?

Well I love to sleep!  Does that surprise you?  I’m an older gentleman so I need more sleep than pups do.  Did you know that some dogs need up to 13 hours of sleep a day?  I think I may fall into that category.

Do you like to go for walks?

Yes I love getting out and about!  Despite my age I still have a good amount of energy, when I’m awake, that is.  I can’t go too far, I prefer my walks to be short and sweet but I still love smelling the fresh air.

Do you have a favorite treat?

I enjoy your good old classic milk bones.  They can’t be beat if you ask me, that’s probably why they’ve been around for so long, I remember snacking on those when I was just a puppy!

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, I’ve seen a good deal in my time and it takes a lot to rattle me.  I like to think of myself as a relaxed guy that goes with the flow.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well I think I’m a pretty lovable dog, so I think I could really fit in anywhere!  Like I said, I go with the flow.  I probably would be best with an older couple that moves at my pace and is looking for a couch buddy.  I also get along with other dogs and am good with dog-savvy children.  I would probably even enjoy the company of a cat!

Transy, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well like I said, I’ve seen a lot in my time, including friends of mine who suffered some serious injuries, even while they were in their prime.  You never know what can happen with a pet whether they are young or old, so it’s probably a good idea to be prepared for anything.

We couldn’t agree with Transy more.  He is clearly a very smart boy and understands the value of being prepared to get your pet the best possible care should they need it.  We here at MassDrive want you to be prepared too, call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote and begin the journey to protecting your furry friend and your wallet!

 

Furry Friend Friday With Kittery!

kittery

Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  Meet Kittery, easy enough name to remember right?  Her being a kitty and all.  This girl is up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society in Lowell and is ready to be your new best friend!

So Kittery, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I love being around people, and here at the shelter they call me the “office cat” and let me hang out in the office with the staff instead of in my cage, how awesome is that!  I’m a very simple girl, I like to kick back an relax and be around my people.  I don’t really ask for much more than that, maybe just a sunny spot near the window so I can watch the world go by.  Oh and maybe my donut pillow that I have here, I love curling up in a ball and getting nice and cozy on it. Even though I’m a young girl, I’m not very playful, I can be sometimes, but I have to be in the mood.

Do you have a favorite treat?

I’m not picky when it comes to treats, I’ll take almost anything as long as it comes with being petted too!

Is there anything you’re afraid of?

Not really, nothing really terrifies me that I can think of, but I can be shy around new people sometimes.  The staff here all said that I warmed up to them rather quickly though, so that must be a good thing!  The only other thing that can make me a bit nervous is big dogs that aren’t friendly, but can you blame me?  I’m usually indifferent towards most dogs if they leave me alone, it’s the ones that don’t leave me alone that make me nervous.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well since I’m so laid back, I think I would do best with a family that’s laid back too.  I’m really looking to be someone’s companion and best friend, so would do well with an older couple or family with older kids I think.  Oh and I wouldn’t want to go to a home with a dog that would be around me all the time, those are my only conditions and if you think your home would be a good fit I would love to meet you!

Why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider getting?

Well I think all parents want the best for their kids, even the furry ones!  Pet insurance seems like a good way to be as prepared for the unexpected as you can possibly be.

Kittery is right, as pet owners ourselves, we know how important furry friends are, they’re party of the family, so they should be protected like it.  That’s why we offer pet insurance as one of our products so that you can keep all of your valuables safe, even the ones with four legs!  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote today!

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Alan!

Alan

Who’s ready for a Furry Friend Friday interview? Alan is! This cute little guy is a dachshund mix and is up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter in Sterling and is ready to find a family!  He’s still a puppy and is only about 5 months old, so could use some puppy training to make sure he’s on his best behavior.  If that’s something you can do and if this looks like the face of your new best friend, pay him a visit!

So Alan, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

I’m a pretty simple guy, I like belly rubs, running around outside, getting attention, playing fetch, just the usual puppy stuff.  I’m a very friendly guy but can be shy sometimes, but if you give me a belly rub I’ll love you forever!

Do you have a favorite toy?

Well I love to chase things, frisbees, balls, things like that.  Even though I’m on the small side I still love to run around and am pretty fast!

Now I hear you are not originally from Massachusetts, is that correct?

Yes you’re right I’m not a native to this state, I’m originally from Puerto Rico!  It was much warmer there, but so far I’m loving Massachusetts!  All of the people here at the shelter are so nice and told me I’d find the right home in no time!

Is there anything that scares you?

Sometimes other dogs do, I don’t usually get along with them, I’m a pretty feisty guy and am what I guess you would call the alpha male so I don’t like anyone sharing my toys or attention!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well, for starters I would like to be the only dog, I want all of your attention for myself!  I would also need to go to a family that was willing to be patient with me and bring me to training, I’m still young and have some skills I need to master.  I could really go with anyone, I would be great with kids and am a true love bug.

And why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well you never know when an accident can happen, when it comes to puppies like me or even older and wiser dogs, accidents are accidents and its best to be prepared for them if you ask me.

Alan is already such a smarty at such a young age!  We’re sure he’ll pass any puppy training course with flying colors!  When it comes to being prepared for accidents, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote today and get your furry friend the protection they deserve!
