SOS Animal Rescue has more strays up for adoption
BATON ROUGE - Andrea from SOS Animal Rescue returned to the set Monday evening and brought along special guest "Ruggles" who will be looking for a new home starting next week.
Ruggles is an older Chihuahua mix who was found abandoned in the parking lot of an area pet store recently. He comes equipped with a quiet disposition and, while he may have been a bit nervous about his first television appearance, is very sweet.
Andrea says animals like Ruggles are rescued from parking lots and even inside pet stores with alarming frequency, and it is her organization's goal to get these abandoned animals to new, loving homes. Ruggles will be up for adoption some time next week. Since he is an older dog, he may have some issues with his teeth, but he is house broken and will make a great addition to any family.
There are plenty of pets that need to be placed in suitable homes. Andrea says SOS has a lot of kittens up for adoption at the moment so if you're more of a feline fancier, be sure to check with them about perhaps finding a new addition to your household.
SOS Animal Rescue is a local non-profit organization that is operated by a dedicated group of volunteers who want nothing more than to reduce the number of unwanted and abandoned pets in the Baton Rouge area.
Andrea said the group's website recently received a facelift so be sure to visit them at sosrescuebr.org to learn more about the adoption process and to browse the variety of furry friends who need love. As always, if you don't have room for another pet in your life, SOS Animal Rescue can always use another volunteer. Information about volunteering is also available on their website.
