ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- Meet Rin, WENY's Pet of the Week from the Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA!

Rin is a four-year-old shepherd mix with the energy of a six-month-old. With the amount of energy he has, it is recommended he be adopted by a family who can be active with him -- such as taking him on walks or runs. If the family has any children, it is recommended they be 10 years old and older due to Rin's active personality. Rin also tends to be choosy with his canine friends, but has previously lived with a cat and is very comfortable with them. 

The SPCA will also be holding an educational event on June 25 for teenagers called "Pet Sitting 101." It will take place from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the shelter, and those interested can sign up on the SPCA's website.

As the weather additionally gets warmer and families go on vacation, the shelter reminds all pet owners to vaccinate their animals, especially if they will be boarded up while away. The SPCA continues to hold vaccination clinics, and all information -- including a link to sign up -- can be found on their website here. With the warm weather also comes puppies and kitten litters continuing to be born. The SPCA asks, if possible, for dry dog and cat food donations, as well as puppy and kitten food donations.

If you or someone you know is interested in giving Rin his forever home, you can fill out an application for the Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA here.
