Meet Zorra, WENY's SPCA Pet of the Week!
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- Meet Zorra, WENY's Pet of the Week from the Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA!
Zorra is a two-year-old female terrier and pitbull mix who is ready to be someone's devoted companion. She is a little bit shy at first with newer people, but once you get to know her she can get a little wound up and show her spunky side. Zorra is a bit choosy with other canine companions, but after living with cats before, she is comfortable with living with any type of feline company. For families with children, kids should be eight years old and older so they can respect her shy and timid demeanor.
The SPCA is partnering with EOP for some Humane Education Sessions for kids ages 10 through 16. Some sessions will be at the shelter, while others will be at EOP. With the beginning of the school year in full swing, all sessions will take place after school from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information and to sign up, head to the SPCA's website and go to their education page.
In addition to the multiple Humane Education Sessions, the SPCA will be holding two events on Sept. 24. The first one will be a free rabies clinic that the shelter is co-hosting with the Chemung County Health Department. The second event is an adoption event at the Arnot Mall with other animal shelters from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Only kittens will be available for adoption; there will be no dogs. More information on both events can be found on the SPCA's website.
With September being a very busy month for the SPCA, the shelter is looking for volunteers to help out with dog walking, as well as their spay and neuter clinics. In addition to looking for more volunteers, the SPCA is also seeking more donations. Some items it is in dire need of include dry dog and cat food, as well as wet dog and cat food.
