Nena and Leo looking for loving homes

Save Our Stray has two animals looking for new homes.

Nena, a friendly and affectionate 5-year-old cat, who was ill when she came to the nonprofit animal welfare organization, but is now well and eating on her own, according to information provided by Save Our Strays. Nena is house trained and spayed, with up-to-date shots.

Leo, a 5-year-old Pekingese, came to Save Our Strays with several health problems (an underdeveloped trachea, extra long palate and a narrow nose causing severe breathing issues) that were recently corrected with costly surgery. Leo is on the mend and is need of a loving "forever" home. He is a typical little Pekingese who loves being held, especially now that he's feeling better, and is called "our little warrior" by the Save Our Strays staff. The organization is looking for a home for him or a tax-deductible donation to help cover the cost of his extensive surgery. His shots are current.

Save Our Strays, 1677 Post Road East, requires a prospective adopter to complete an application, interview with an adoption coordinator, and pay a $25 non-refundable deposit. The fees are $250 for dogs, $100 for adult cats and $125 for kittens up to five months. All animals are current on age-appropriate immunizations and spayed or neutered before placement, unless their age or health requires it be done at a later time.
