* the guinea pig, not the human (Photo: Fairfax County Animal Shelter)
I can’t decide how to start this article. I’ll just show the ideas I was considering:
I spoke with Amanda Novotny, Shelter Placement Coordinator for Fairfax County. Amanda told me Ovi is a handsome, one-year-old furball with a winning spirit:
Alex was surrendered by his owner because he had two guinea pigs – Alex Ovechkin and Joe Montana – and they weren’t getting along. I guess Alex and Joe just didn’t want to be friends. Maybe they’re both just too competitive. They are now both at our shelter and ready to be adopted, but separately. J I’ve attached a better photo of Alex if you’d like to use it. He has really great hair.
I love his great hair; I can tell from the photo. Also, now I hate Joe Montana even more than I already did.
I asked Amanda who would make a good adopter for Ovi.
To adopt a pet from our shelter, potential adopters must have proof that they’re at least 18 years old, allowed to have that pet where they live, and show updated rabies certificates for any other dogs or cats in the home. (Here are the full adoption requirements.) Other than that, I would just suggest that people do some online research about the type of pet they are hoping to add to their family, and then just come on in to meet our available animals! We have lots of really knowledgeable volunteers who can help answer questions, too.
Go to the shelter’s site to learn more.
But before I let you go, I wanna look at some more adoptable pets with you, because that’s how I like to spend my time.
Fat Mama probably thinks she’s a lap dog. She seems like the kind of pup who wants to eat your french fries, just one or two, tops.
Chi-Chi has beautiful fur and is probably good with children and very good at naps.
Snoopy is the perfect dog. Don’t tell Georgia I said that.
Mal wants to watch television with you. Huge fan of cable news.
Is Charlie too sultry for you? The answer is no.
Gizzy wants to come home with you and cuddle forever.
