The Dog Days of Summer!

Moki picAccording to Webster’s, the dog days of summer are “1: the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere,” and “2:  a period of stagnation or inactivity.”

Well I so understand the period of inactivity — when that hammock calls, and the lemonade is fresh and cold.  But what if we chose to look at the dog days of summer as the perfect time to consider adopting a dog or cat in need of a home, instead of adopting an excuse to do nothing?

We’re in the business of finding homes for buyers of all shapes and sizes, and matching them to seller’s of all ages and temperaments.  So perhaps we can convince you to make a match of your own and visit one or your local rescue shelters before the summer is over.

The Central New York SPCA is always a good bet for finding loveable, adoptable pets for qualified folks.  Check out their adoption process and fees before making a visit to their 5878 East Molloy Rd. Syracuse, NY 13211 location.

Helping Hands Dog Rescue located at 6606 Kinne Road in Dewitt, NY, has been in business for five years and has placed over 4,000 dogs in homes.  Check out their hours of operation and stop by and meet the mutts now available for adopting.

And finally, the Humane Society of Central New York at 4915 ½ West Taft Rd. Liverpool,, encourages potential pet lovers to stop by, meet the staff, meet the adoptees, and discover how a well matched pet and and pet owner can change the life of not only a special animal, but of you.

Having adopted our family’s very first dog from the Central New York SPCA several years ago, I can vouch for the changed life and no regrets.  And like our real estate Team finding the right match and the right home for our clients, placing a pet in a loving environment is a win-win!

Send us your pictures of your adopted pets — let’s make these the best dog (and cat) days of summer ever!
