Furry Friend Friday With 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 Berni!


Happy Friday everyone, we hope you all had a fun and safe Fourth of July!  Yesterday was all about sun, food, fireworks, and fun but today is all about our furry friend!  Meet Berni, this cute girl is only one a half years old and is up for adoption at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem!  Rescued from Georgia, she is a sweet girl who has never known a home of her own but is definitely ready to find her family!

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

Well I love observing everything going on around me.  I’m very curious and love getting out and about to explore.  I’ve been here at the shelter for about 3 months now and get special privileges because I’m such a good girl!   I get to sit in the different offices in the building and even go on field trips!  I am a very active and social girl.  Whether I am going for a walk, run, or playing with other dogs I am having a blast!  Of course I love to snuggle too once I get tuckered out.

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

Like I said I get to go on field trips sometimes and have been to the Lynn woods a few times.  As a hound mix I love getting to use my sniffer and explore the woods, I am originally from Georgia so I guess that makes me a country girl!  Every time I go out I always make sure to wear my “adopt me” vest so that everyone knows I’m still looking for my family!

What about a favorite treat?

I will do anything for a treat!  I love almost all food and had some pepperoni this morning, don’t mind my breath.  Treats have really helped me with my training too, I know how to sit, stay, give paw, and pick up on things very quickly!  If I know I’ll get a treat for being good, I’ll do anything you ask!

Is there anything that scares you?

Not really, I’m a pretty confident girl and have been through a lot so I think of myself as being pretty tough.  I wasn’t even afraid of all the fireworks last night!

So Berni, why do you think pet insurance is so important for pet parents?

Well like I said, I love treats and will do anything for a good snack, even go through the trash.  I haven’t eaten anything bad yet but you never know what can happen or what I may accidentally get into, I am still a puppy after all!  That’s just me specifically, I’m sure all pets have their unique quirks that might get them into trouble, so it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Berni is right, all pets have their unique quirks and personality traits that make them lovable but can also get them into trouble.  Make sure your furry friend is protected and call us for a pet insurance quote today!
