Pet Parade: Worcester Animal Rescue League


IS THAT TIME FOR EVERYONE’S FAVORITE SEGMENT, OUR FRIENDS FROM THE WORCESTER ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE ARE UP EARLY WITH US THIS MORNING THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT YOU DO AND FOR COMING TO TALK TO US. YOU CAN SHOW US THE AMAZING PETS THAT YOU HAVE UP FOR ADOPTION. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WORCESTER ANIMAL RESCUE LEAGUE AND WHAT YOU DO. WE HAVE AROUND SINCE 1912 SERVING THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES AND WE ARE ONE OF THE LARGEST SHELTERS IN MASSACHUSETTS. WE CARRY OVER 1500 ANIMALS FOR TIMELY DOGS AND CATS BUT WE ARE REALLY SET UP TO HANDLE OUR FELINE AND CANINE FRIENDS. WE PROVIDE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SURFACES INCLUDING ADOPTION AND DIFFERENT SURFACES SO WE ARE REALLY HAPPY TO BE HERE WITH JACKSON IN OUR FERRETS. TELL US ABOUT JACKSON. HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD HIM? HE IS A CATCH. WE WERE CHATTING THAT HE REALLY IS ONE OF THOSE DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH AND HE IS A SIX-YEAR-OLD DOG AND HE IS NEUTERED AND UP- TO-DATE WITH HIS VACCINES AND HE IS SO FRIENDLY WITH PEOPLE. IT REALLY IS. McKEE IS AN EXUBERANT GUY BUT DOES NOT JUMP ON YOU. HE DOES NOT AND THIS IS ONE OF THOSE FEW DOGS I MET THAT WILL NOT JUMP ON YOU. HE HAS BIG BANNERS. HE HAS MANNERS AND KNOWS HOW TO SIT AND OBEY, SOME COMMANDS BUT HE ALSO LOVES TO HAVE FUN. HE CANNOT BE TRUSTED WITH THE DOG TOY. HE DOES LIKE TO SHRED THEM. BUT IT IS ALL IN GOOD FUN. HE REALLY IS A GOOD BOY AND HE IS A STAFF AND VOLUNTEER FAVORITE. NOT THAT WE PLAY FAVORITES BECAUSE ALL OF THEM ARE OUR FAVORITE’S BUT JACKSON HAS GONE ON A FEW DIFFERENT FIELD TIPS TO GET ICE CREAMS AND CAR RIDES SO THIS IS ADDING TO HIS RESUME IF YOU WILL, BEING ON PET PARADE. YOU WOULD BE GREAT WITH A FAMILY DOES NOT HAVE ANY SMALL CHILDREN BECAUSE HE IS A BIGGER DOG AND YOU MIGHT GET A LITTLE EXUBERANT AND LIKES TO PLAY WITH TOYS, SO MAYBE A FAMILY WITH OLDER KIDS OR TEENAGERS AND HE NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY PET IN THE HOME. HE GETS ALONG WELL WITH SOME DOGS BUT HE NEEDS — HE DOES ENJOY TO PLAY SO I THINK IF THERE WAS A SMALLER DOG OR CAT, YOU MIGHT GET A LITTLE TOO EXUBERANT. HE HAS BEEN VERY CURIOUS ABOUT THE FERRETS. LET’S BRING THEM IN. SEE LATER, JACKSON. GOODBYE. WE ARE BACK WITH A COUPLE OF FERRETS. I DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THESE ANIMALS SO TELL US ABOUT THEM. THEY ARE AWESOME. SO THIS IS PIGGY AND SMOLTZ. THEY LOVE EACH OTHER NEED TO BE ADOPTED TOGETHER. THEY ARE NEUTERED SO THEY WILL NOT BE HAVING ANY BABIES AND THEY ARE — FERRETS ARE FRIENDLY AND THEY ARE MISCHIEVOUS SO YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED YOU HAVE TO BE BABY PROVING YOUR HOUSE WITH THE FERRITE. THERE IS SO FLUFFY AND WIGGLY. THEY ARE VERY WEEKLY, LIKE A SNAKE IN THE LITTLE FURRY BODY AND THEY CAN FLATTEN THEMSELVES TO GET UNDER DOORWAYS AND INTO ANYTHING. IT IS FUN BUT YOU HAVE TO BE STIMULATING THEM AND HAVE PUZZLES TO PLAY WITH AND GAMES TO DO EVEN JUST BOXES FILLED WITH STYROFOAM PEANUTS ARE A GREAT THING FOR THEM TO PLAY AND BECAUSE OTHER GUYS THEY WILL FIND THEIR OWN GAMES THEY CAN GO TO HIM WITH OTHER ANIMALS AS LONG AS THE ANIMALS REALIZE THEIR PART OF THE FAMILY, TOO, NOT SOME FUN SQUEAKY TOY BECAUSE SOMETIMES THEY CAN GET HURT. AND THEY ARE GENERALLY QUITE ANIMALS DO NOT MAKE A TON OF NOISE BUT THEY CAN MOVE THINGS AROUND. THEY DANCE WITH A NAME LIKE BIGGIE AND SMALLS. WE HAVE A FEW SECONDS LEFT TO TALK ABOUT THE EVENTS YOU HAVE COMING UP. THE CANADA.COM YOU CAN ALWAYS SUPPORT THEM. A KIDDIE BABY SHOWER?
