Pet Health


Pet of the Week – Pookie

Pookie has no reason to love people. She was dropped off on a country road in Hannibal at the end of January. By the time we found her, she was scared and starving. But as soon as she figured out that we were kind (and had food for her), it was love at first sight. She is spayed now and up to date with her shots and totally, mind bogglingly, affectionate.


Pet of the Week – Cayleigh

Cayleigh is a sweet, playful, and friendly little tabby girl. She loves to sleep in the bathroom sink and runs around like a lunatic chasing the laser light. Her favorite toy of all time is hair ties!

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Please Help Support Animal Welfare

It’s that time of year again. The New York State Legislature goes back into session this week and you need to be ready to contact your state legislators about legislation that will be introduced concerning animal welfare. What’s the best way to do that? At the Oswego County Humane Society we receive action alerts and pass them on to you in this column, with emails, and on our Facebook page.


Pet of the Week – Junior

Junior is a sleek, cuddly black youngster with a white tip on his tail. He is very playful and gets along well with young kids and other cats in his foster home. He is persistently trying to garner the affections of the family’s older cat.

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Why Do Dogs Need Shelter?

Last week, you talked again about shelters for dogs left outdoors and I have no problem with that for most dogs. But my dog, Bubba, is a Siberian Husky and even if he had a dog house he wouldn’t go in it. Seriously. That breed came from Siberia! He likes being outside in the coldest weather we get.


Pet of the Week – Indy

This little mare is Indy. Her tattoo name is Saratoga Dolly. She is very good with kids and other animals. She’s about 15.2 hands. She is good with the vet and farrier, and good in a stall or run in shed.

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Providing Warm Shelter For Dogs

We’ve talked about this last fall and in prior years. But, we still get questions about dogs left out in the cold. So it never hurts to repeat ourselves. THE COLD IS HERE. And it never hurts to repeat ourselves – so we want to remind dog owners and dog lovers of the New York statute about shelter for dogs.


Pet of the Week – Charming

Charming is a happy and handsome boy, about five months old. He was rescued, along with his sisters, from under still another porch in Oswego. He was very timid at first but now he has taken to sleeping in bed with his foster mom.
