With the temperatures getting colder, and the holidays drawing nearer, it’s the perfect time to curl up in front of the television and watch all your seasonal favorites. While Rudolph is adorable, Clark Griswold is hilarious and Elf is the epitome of innocence, the cats and dogs at the shelter have a holiday favorite of their own.
The pets have a soft spot for the Grinch, the ultimate underdog who also happens to be a dog lover. The Grinch has been slandered in song and canceled by the Whos, but, of course, in the end he shows his soft side and there’s a happy ending in Whoville. And a happy ending is exactly what Tux and Peppa are hoping for this holiday season.
You’re a cute one, Miss Peppa! Six-year-old Peppa is pretty and petite, with warm brown eyes and a sweet, expressive face.
And alongside that sweet face you’ll find a loving and affectionate personality. Peppa, a bulldog-mix, is a friendly and energetic girl who loves going for walks almost as much as she loves cuddling. She also boasts a tiny, crooked tail that enhances her cuteness. Peppa loves meeting new people but is very selective about her dog friends, and will need to be the only dog in her new home. But Peppa is all the dog you’ll need – after all, the Grinch needed just one tiny dog for companionship!
Submit an adoption application online through the Burlington County Animal Shelter’s Petango page (petango.com, enter the shelter’s zip code of 08060, then go to the shelter page and click on Peppa’s picture), then call the shelter at 609-265-5073 (ext. 4) to set up a meeting.
Even the Grinch would have a hard time keeping a smile from his face when looking at Tux! The Grinch might be a dog-person (or dog-grinch), but Tux is upbeat and sweet enough to make his heart swell several sizes.
Tux had an owner, but when his owner moved Tux arrived at the shelter decked out in his formal wear. He is hoping to show off his fancy threads during his new family’s holiday festivities. Tux is an outgoing, playful guy who is finding his shelter cage rather confining. This sweet guy is feeling a little down and missing his family. Can you help deliver holiday happiness to Tux?
