Wisdom From a Furry Friend: A Very Sweet Girl named Turbo

Wisdom From a Furry Friend
A Very Sweet Girl named Turbo

Hello. My name is Turbo and I live at the Humane Society of Washington County. I am a terrier pit bull mix and I am very sweet young lady. I am about a year and a half old and I love to play. I have a pretty beige and white coat but I am not real pretty. I don't remember what happened but my left ear was hurt and when it healed it no longer looks like my right ear. But I can hear just fine and it isn't sore or anything. I watch people walk by my room at the shelter but not many stop. I don't know why because I talk to them and I tell them I would love to have someone teach me things and love me. The ladies here where I am staying say I have pretty eyes and a sweet face.
I am looking for a home and I hope someone who reads this will come in and want to take me home with them. That would be so nice and I would love to run in a nice back yard and play and eat dog biscuits. But you know what? I am not the only one that needs to find a home. I have overheard the nice people here talking about all the cats they have here right now. It sounds like things are very difficult, with up to 40 cats and kittens coming into the shelter a day. This isn't a very big place and there isn't enough room for that many cats.
They say a big problem is that the cats aren't spayed or neutered. That seems silly because that would help stop the unwanted litters of kittens. And you know, there are programs established at the Humane Society to help people spay and neuter their cats and dogs. They are called SNIP and SNAP and they were established for residents of Washington County. One of the staff, Margaret Becker, helps people see if they qualify for either program. If you want to find out if you qualify for either SNIP or SNAP call her at 301 733 2060 extension 212.
The Humane Society of Washington County is trying really hard to find homes for all the cats and kittens. They even started offering two cats for the adoption price of one. There are so many wonderful cats here and if you can take two home for the price of one...well, I can't imagine a better offer than that. So, come on into the Humane Society of Washington County and visit with all the beautiful cats. You might just fall in love with a couple of them. And while you are in here stop by and see me, too. Maybe you will also fall in love with me. We are all waiting to meet you.
