Furry Friend Friday With Kelso!

kelso

For today’s Furry Friend Friday interview we got to chat with Kelso, a 5 year old lab up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society.  This handsome boy was picked up as a stray and is ready to find a forever home where he can enjoy a nice warm dog bed, toys, and the occasional dog treat!  If you’re looking for your new best friend, look no further and visit Kelso today!

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

Well I love to play, even though I’m 5 years old, I have a lot of energy!  I’m pretty rambunctious and my friends here at the shelter describe me as a bit of a bull in a china shop, so I love going for long walks and playing with toys to help burn off my energy.  After a day of fun and running around, I love to curl up and spend some time with my people.

What are some of your favorite toys?

My favorite toys are the squeaky ones!  The only problem is they aren’t that sturdy, so I go through them pretty quickly.  The staff here are really nice though and they know I can be a little rough with my toys so they try to give my ones that are a bit tougher and will last longer.

What about a favorite treat?

I love love love food and will eat anything in sight!  That might be why the staff here are trying to help me watch my figure and limit my treat intake, I think I look great but maybe I have gained a pound or two.

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, I’m a pretty confident boy and can’t think of anything off the top of my head.

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

Well since I’m an active boy I would love to be with a family that can bring me for long walks, or maybe even to see new places like the beach and the mountains!  I love other dogs so would be good in a home with another furry friend if you  already have one, and I love kids but would do better with older ones that aren’t afraid of a rambunctious boy.  Since I am a bit rowdy, I would benefit from some training courses, but I’m a fast learner and am sure I would make my new family proud!

Kelso why do you think pet insurance is a good investment for all pet parents to consider?

Well I’ve already learned that life can take some unexpected twists and turns,  so pet insurance seems like a smart way to make sure your pet can get the health care they need should anything unexpected happen.

Kelso is a smart young boy, and knows that life can hold all kinds or surprises, including when it comes to your pet ‘s health.  Pet insurance is an easy way to protect their future and ensure that if the time comes, your only concern will be their health, rather than worrying about the cost.  Call us today and get a free quote from one of our agents!

 

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Yaya!

yaya

Here we are again at the end of another work week and you know what that means, Furry Friend Friday!  Meet Yaya, an 8 month old lab/pit bull mix up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter who has been waiting to find a new home since May!

So Yaya, what is your favorite thing to do during the day?

Well I love being with people more than anything! My friends here at the shelter describe me as “very loyal” because I would be happy to just sit at your feet while you work or watch TV just so I can be near you!  Other than hanging out with people, I love being out and about so I can burn off all of the energy I have!  Afterwards, I enjoy a nice long nap.  The staff here all think I am so funny because every time I fall asleep I roll onto my back and sleep with all paws in the air.

Do you have a favorite place to go for a walk?

Usually I get to go out with the volunteers for a walk every day which I love.  We usually just go down the street a ways and if not we get to play outside in the pen behind the shelter.  I must admit that as a Tennessee girl (I was rescued and brought up to the Bay State!) I don’t really care where I’m going as long as I have my people by my side!

What about a favorite treat?

How can I pick one favorite when there are so many options to choose from? I will really eat anything I can get, I’m not picky when it comes to food.

Is there anything you would want your future family to know about you?

Well the only thing is that I would rather go to a home without other dogs or small children.  I love the spotlight and but don’t love when someone tries to steal it from me, I want to be the only apple of your eye!

Yaya, why do you think all pet parents should consider insurance for their furry friend?

Well if you ask me, if you adopt a pet you should be able to take care of it.  The vet’s office can get expensive, and fast so why wouldn’t you want pet insurance to make it more affordable?

Yaya makes a lot of good points!  All pet parents should have the means to properly care for their pet, and that includes their health care.  Protect your furry friend like you would any other member of your family and give us a call at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today!

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Lena!

We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview!  Today I got to chat with Lena, a 5 year-old lab/shepherd mix up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter!  Lena was surrendered by her previous owner and has been waiting for her forever home for a few months now.  This sweet girl is very active and would be the perfect companion for a young couple!

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

I LOVE to be outside more than anything!  I live for adventures and walks, getting out of the shelter and being able to smell the fresh air is the best feeling, I can’t wait until I find my forever home and can go outside and explore all the time!  I also like to go for rides in the car, as long as we aren’t on our way to the vet!  I love long rides and don’t even get car sick!

It sounds like you have a lot of energy, do you have a favorite place you like to go for walks so you can burn it all off?

Well the shelter here is in Scituate so we are very close to the beach!  The staff bring me down there once in a while and I can’t get enough,  I love the way the ocean smells and the feeling of sand between my toes, it’s a lot nicer to run on than pavement!  We also have some trails in the woods here behind the shelter and that is fun too, the woods have so many things to smell and I love getting to hear the birds chirping!

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

The only toys we have here in the shelter are tennis balls and frisbees and those are a lot of fun! We don’t get other toys because the staff doesn’t want us to get too possessive or protective of our toys around other dogs.  I think I would enjoy a nice rope to play tug of war with or a squeaky toy though, maybe when I get my own home I will have a bunch of toys that are all for me!

What about any fears?

Well, I’m not saying I’m afraid of other dogs, I just don’t like them.  We don’t really get along very well, at least not here in the shelter.  The other dogs here are always barking and it drives me crazy!  Can’t a girl get some peace and quiet?  Maybe once I settle into my own home I could deal with another pet, but it would have to be the right one and I’m still a little weary of the idea.  I like all of the attention on me!

Lena, why do you think pet insurance is important for all pet owners?

Well life can be pretty unpredictable, after living with a family of my own, I never expected to wind up in a shelter!  Who knows what else could happen when you least expect it, better to be safe than sorry!

How many of you pet owners out there have ever had an unexpected vet bill throw a wrench into your monthly budget?  It always seems to happen at the worst possible time too, but with pet insurance you don’t have to worry about getting your pet the care they need because they will be covered!  Call us at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today!
