Bow to Wow: Adopt a pet during the dog days of summer

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!
