Wonton and Kneidel have found a loving family to keep them together.

What better way to honor another week gone by then introduce not one, but two adorable kitties looking for a new home? Thanks to North Shore Animal League America, we here at Movie TV Tech Geeks are doing just that for our loyal readers! For the past few months, we have been teaming up with North Shore Animal League America to raise awareness for pet adoption. Every week we feature adoptable pets –cats and dogs – that are anxiously waiting to be welcomed into their forever home.

Even if you don’t live in the area, you can still contact North Shore Animal League, and they can guide you to the closest no-kill rescue shelter in your area for a similar dog or even arrange travel arrangements. If you have a friend you think would be interested, pass these articles on as we are working even harder this year to get even more pets adopted than last year.

North Shore Animal League America is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. For over 70 years, North Shore has been rescuing animals and advocating their proper care. Since opening in 1944, the organization has saved the lives of over 1,000,000 cats, dogs, kittens and puppies.

The shelter is located in Port Washington, New York, where it facilitates animal rescue and adoptions, as well as plays a lead role in the no-kill movement. North Shore Animal League America continues to innovate better and more sustainable ways to care for pets, in order to create a brighter future for animals everywhere.

With their vision, “To put an end to animal cruelty and euthanasia and to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate, permanent homes.” North Shore Animal League America continues to make a positive difference in the lives of countless animals.

Now to introduce the adorable dynamic duo we have for you this week…Wonton and Kneidel!

Wonton and Kneidel make up the friendly, brother-sister duo that is waiting to be adopted at North Shore’s campus. They are quite young, as the shelter estimates them to be somewhere around 8 months old. Wonton and Kneidel both have soft, short white and black fur coats. While they definitely look like siblings, they each have their own unique markings – which are equally as adorable, of course! These two cuties are both looking to find their forever home and must be adopted together.

It has been said that pet owners smile more, laugh more and form special friendships with other animal owners and lovers. Having Wonton and Kneidel around will surely bring such improvements to their new owners’ lives.

Cats are extremely versatile and adaptable animals, making them the perfect pet option for almost every household. As mainly independent animals, cats are often low maintenance and are perfect for those who live an active and busy lifestyle who may not be able to take on the responsibility that is associated with owning a dog.

Studies have shown that children can benefit and learn valuable lessons when pets are brought into their home. Ultimately, children can learn responsibility, value for life, socialization and also build their self-esteem by caring for pets. Meanwhile, cats can also provide ample companionship to adults and seniors and improve their feelings of self-worth. Taking care of loving and appreciative pets, like Wonton and Kneidel, often provides a sense of purpose for owners.

Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Wonton and Kneidel do everything together: eat, drink, play, and sleep. If you are able, and if you have the space to adopt these two, they will make amazing family pets for children of all ages.”

The staff at the shelter also notes that Wonton and Kneidel get along with other felines and can often be found playing with some of their fellow kitty friends. Therefore, they would likely be able to adapt well in a home that already has a four-legged friend hanging around.

Moreover, Wonton and Kneidel are playful, affectionate and incredibly loving cats. They have plenty of joy to share and would make the perfect addition to any welcoming family.

If you are interested in adopting in Wonton and Kneidel, please contact DoritS@animalleague.org.

STILL SEARCHING FOR A GREAT HOME

CASSIDY

cassidey adoptable dog nsala movie tv tech geeks

Fortunately rescued by North Shore from the mid-west, Cassidy is a three-year-old Terrier and Schnauzer mix. She is a smaller dog with soft white and light brown hair and an adorable look that will have you falling in love instantly. Although she is a bit shy and timid at first, she is quick to warm up and show affection to those that earn her trust.

Terriers are known for being a relatively small breed although there are different variations. They were first bred and trained to hunt rodents and vermin. Therefore, the breed is known for being active and high-energy. The name terrier is actually in reference to the Latin word “terra” meaning Earth, and it signifies their love of digging which was once useful for finding prey such as moles and badgers.

Due to their trained hunting past, Terriers are also notably intelligent and are quite responsive to training. They are often very single-minded, meaning that they become very concentrated at the task at hand, whether that be playing fetch or hunting prey. During the time that Cassidy has been at North Shore’s campus, her adaptability has been thoroughly demonstrated through her ability to learn how to walk on a leash, as well as do her business outside. In addition, her particular breed is also known for being territorial. They are often protective of their homes and loved ones, thus, can form very strong bonds with their owners.

Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “During Cassidy’s time here at North Shore Animal League America, our medical and behavioral staff have worked with her to teach her how to walk on a leash and how to use the bathroom outside. She is a smart dog with so much love to give.”

The staff at North Shore also wants future potential owner(s) of Cassidy to be aware that she does have a heart murmur. This is a medical condition that requires her to be seen by a vet twice a year to listen to and view her heart through an echocardiogram. Other than this condition, Cassidy is in great health and has plenty of joy-filled years to share with her future family.

Lastly, it is recommended that Cassidy go to a home with children at least 12 years of age, as she is a relatively timid little pup. Nonetheless, Cassidy is yet another incredibly caring and deserving dog that will bring plenty of love and laughter into any home she is welcomed into.

CASSIDY – ADOPTION #: PM5941
