We're in the midst of summer, and sadly, shelter cages across the country are packed with wonderful dogs and cats. That's the case at Animal Care and Control of NYC, where I had no shortage of sweet animals to pick from for our July installment of Bow to Wow.
In fact, the shelter has experienced a recent influx of puppies and very young pooches, like our gentle Gene, an adorable 9-month-old border collie mix, and Pueblo, a lovely 10-month-old Lhasa Apso boy.
Then we have a stunning one-and-a-half-year-old basset hound-beagle mix whose regal looks earned her the name Princess. And on to Poo Bear, a 3-year-old "puggle," who is simply adorable.
Next, a two-and-a-half-year-old Maltese mix named Max. And finally, a precious kitten named Z who loves to kiss and cuddle in the palm of your hand!
These are six stellar animals waiting for you to give them a second chance at a wonderful life. They deserve it!
