Wine aficionados rejoice for the “Wags N Wine” wine tasting event! The Director of the Page Animal Adoption Agency, Natalie
These books might be quite short but for the time that you’re with Clover you’re having a lovely time. I’m not sure what it is; Clover? The idea of the Magical Animal Adoption Agency? Or the different magical creatures within it? The artwork? Probably the combination of all, but the book is just like
In this installment, The Enchanted Egg, Mr Jam sets out to to find someone to help tell him more about the magic, enchanted egg he has rescued. With no idea what kind of animal is expected to hatch, Clover is left in charge of caring for the egg as well as the rest of the Adoption Agency while Mr Jam is gone. Unfortunately for Clover, things quickly go awry when the mystery egg hatches, but the creature from inside is nowhere to be found. On her own, Clover must try to locate the missing animal, meanwhile continuing to care for and look after the other animals and business of the Agency. Will she live up to the challenge?
Currently headquarted in the Upstate South Carolina nestled on 50+ acres of rural country with a large network of adoptive families and volunteers in the north east (primarily in New Jersey) "THE NOOK ANIMAL REFUGE & ADOPTION AGENCY" (herein referred to as "THE NOOK REFUGE"), with your continued love and support, continues to expand it's network nation wide. Groups like these have high standards for who gets to adopt. Applicants are sometimes subjected to an interrogation . After receiving this hostile treatment, several would-be pet owners told me, they got offended and gave up. Others push on, (“As a dog ages, it often becomes incontinent and arthritic. How do you intend to handle your dog's age-related problems?”), supplying personal and veterinary references, and submitting to home inspections. Even after going through that ordeal, you can be told that you are unworthy for pet ownership, for reasons often left mysterious. At this point, many frustrated animal lovers can commit an act they’d previously thought abhorrent: They buy a dog, cat, bird, or guinea pig from a pet store or breeder. I know because that’s what happened to me.Before this, enormous numbers of animals who went into shelters never came out. More than 40 years ago, an average of 20 million dogs and cats were euthanized annually. Humane organizations started a campaign to spay and neuter pets, especially those coming through shelters, and today —still terrible, but a vast improvement. In addition to pet sterilization, an effort also began to find accommodations for homeless animals outside the municipal and private shelter systems, which have limited room and often short deadlines for keeping animals before moving them to death row. The new organizations take potentially adoptable pets out of the shelters and foster them, usually in private homes, until the right owner comes along. They control the fate of an increasing number of animals. In New York City, for example, almost 45 percent of the dogs and cats that come into are passed to one of more than 150 private rescue groups. Every year, Purina partners with animal welfare organizations nationwide to offer free pet adoption to eligible adopters age 55+. To cover the expenses of these free adoptions, participating shelters will be reimbursed a designated agreed-upon amount of funds each year by Purina. Participating organizations will also be provided with official adoption certificates to offer to new pet owners in addition to coupons for Purina® cat or dog food.
