Puppy Parade at Pet Pantry in Greenwich: Rescue Puppies for Adoption

puppyCustomers arriving at Pet Pantry Warehouse on Railroad Ave in Greenwich Saturday morning for their dog food and supplies were greeted by puppies. Our friend Tina from Cat Assistance (they rescue dogs too) had four adorable 7-week old puppies available for adoption.

Though Tina is dedicated to rescuing local shelter dogs, and has been traveling to New York City animal control to pull dogs destined for euthanasia, she was compelled to rescue this litter of puppies from a home in Aberdeen, Georgia.

“What kind of dogs are they,” was the refrain from everyone at Pet Pantry on Saturday. The answer was that the pups are a mix. Tina guessed they are a mix of possibly Rottie, Shepherd, Pit-bull and Labrador.

In fact, Tina tells us that there were seven puppies in the litter, but some are already spoken for. One puppy in particular was spotted by a friend of a local vet tech at Cornell University Veterinary Specialists in Stamford.

The plan is for the vet tech to bring the puppy to the adopter in Wisconsin via Southwest Air. “That airline makes it easy,” Tina said. “For $95, you can travel with the puppy under your seat.”

Jeannie Downes and her daughter Laurel Franklin drove to Greenwich from Pearl River, NY to meet one of the pups they’d learned about from Tina’s Facebook page.

Jeannie said said she had a Rottie for many years, but he passed away and she missed him having a big dog.
