I intern at small midtown firm that provides marketing, communications, and fundraising services to non-profit organizations, and one of our clients is the Northeast Animal Shelter. Every few days, I update their list of cats and dogs that are waiting to be adopted on Craigslist and two online animal adoption directories. It’s always enjoyable (but also somewhat depressing) to see pictures of cute animals and read their sometimes cheesy descriptions.
Rene is one of my favorite dogs on the NEAS website that is currently waiting for someone to take him home. He’s a 2-year-old, 17-pound neutered Terrier Chihuahua Mix from the streets of Puerto Rico, and I like to think he was named after the French philosopher Rene Descartes. Look how adorable and handsome he is in this picture, trotting along on the grass like a fluffy miniature pony! This is the description on Rene’s page at the NEAS website:
“Hello, my name is Rene and I am from Puerto Rico. There are three, no four very important things you should know about rescuing a street dog. First, I may need help with housebreaking. I have never had a family or lived in a home. This is all new to me. Second, you should never take me off leash. I have never had to wear such a silly contraption such as a leash and collar. I am used to running free. It is not safe for me to do that, this is why I was rescued. Third, I am smart and an excellent escape artist. It is your job to keep me safe and make sure I don’t have any opportunity to get away from you. If you give me one small chance, I will take it. And last, and most important – I will be the most loving and grateful companion you will ever have.”
To adopt little Rene, call (978)-745-9888 and inquire about Rene (ID# 79732). To support Northeast Animal Shelter, click here to make a donation.
