Each week The Record Newspapers features a pet, or pets of the week for adoption through local shelters and rescue organizations. This week’s pets are again rescues from Pups in Peril.

These two sweet girls were placed under a trash can in a woman’s yard on a very hot day. Trixie and Dixie were very fortunate that the woman could hear the faint whimpers coming from under her trash can.

The pups are approximately seven weeks old and have had their first set of shots and worming. Trixie weighs a little over four pounds and Dixie weighs around 6 pounds. They are thought to be lab mix puppies.

If you are interested in making one of these pups a part of your family, please contact Pups In Peril and fill out an application. Applications for all these pups and others may be filled out online at www.pupsinperil.org. You can also see more of the dogs available for adoption on Pups in Peril’s Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/PupsInPeril.

These pets are also available for visiting at local adoption events. For a schedule of where they will be, visit the Pups in Peril Facebook page.

Pups in Peril is a 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to saving dogs of all ages and breeds by rescuing, rehabilitating and placing them in forever homes.
