The New Rochelle Humane Society, 70 Portman Road in New Rochelle NY is hosting an open house with workshops and presentations on micro-chipping, pet CPR and first aid, and fostering, Sunday May 2 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is for two-footers, only, so leave your pets at home.
If you go, take a tour and visit the animals waiting for adoption. Maybe you’ll take one home.
Here’s the schedule:
• Micro-chipping Presentation, 11 a.m.
• Pet CPR and First Aid Workshop, 12:30 p.m.
• Fostering Workshop, 2 p.m.

Here’s one the pups looking for a good home:

MaryAnne is Shepherd/hound mix who is a total sweetheart. She is a 1-year-old former momma Shepherd who is looking for a home after being found with a litter of eight pups, who look like a Labrador retriever might have been their daddy. Maryanne has amazed everyone at the New Rochelle Humane Society with her gentle, friendly personality. Her adoption fee of $152.50 includes spay surgery, vaccines, heartworm test, micro-chip and a free vet exam.
