Ready to get Lucky? Try this loveable big boy – Courier

Posted by Big Rat on Campus on Sep 22, 2018 in Rat News | Subscribe

Who’s feeling Lucky? Lucky is a 7-year old mixed breed who has stolen the hearts of many staff and volunteers at the shelter. He’s a big boy, with a big, blocky head, a big bark and an even bigger heart. Unfortunately for him, Lucky doesn’t show well in a kennel environment. Visitors misinterpret his exuberance for visitors coupled with his stereotypical pit bull look as being aggressive. Get his gentle giant out of the shelter for a walk and you’ll discover what a lovebug he truly is. He enjoys being with people as much as possible. We think he would do best as the only pet in his new home, as he doesn’t always get along well with other dogs or cats. But don’t worry, this guy will give you plenty of love to make up for it! So, if you’re feeling Lucky, come on in and meet him.

We have plenty of other great animals at the shelter in addition to cats and dogs, including rabbits, pet rats and a handful of adorable baby guinea pigs all just waiting for a new home. Stop in and check out what fun, lovable pets are in our small critter room.

There’s still time to stop in and see our current art exhibit on our Art Wall. Our featured artist this month is Leon Vanella. If you love pictures of beautiful birds in their natural environment, you should check out the exhibit. His photographs will be displayed and available for purchase through September.

Interested in dabbling in the arts yourself? Back by popular demand, Loyal Biscuit and Marie Spaulding Art will be hosting a “Paint Your Pet” event at PMHS Sunday, Oct. 14, from 1 to 4 p.m. right here in our community room. This session is great for the beginner who wants to give painting a try in a fun, stress-free setting. Plus, it’s a great opportunity for a DIY Christmas present for someone special on your list. The cost is just $47. Space is limited, so sign up early to ensure a spot. For more information on how to register for the class visit
