Just before the launch of the original PetPalsNow.com, I went with my new friend Georgette to her shelter, One of A Kind Pet Rescue, to gather facts and photos to fill these pages. I toured their store, where you can get all kinds of pet care supplies, filled with free roaming kitties and puppies in playpens. I went to their clinic and saw cats being spayed and neutered. I met Hanky Panky, Mumbly, Desiree and Lorali and many of the other pets available for adoption.
And then I met Jeff.
Jeff was abandoned with a mate in a brand new carrier at the back door of the shelter. Gregarious and huge (12.75 pounds!) but somehow still nimble, Jeff immediately reached at me from his perch atop a filing cabinet. He was in the clinic's "waiting room", one of several places cats have to hang out before they get rotated into the store for improved visibility. As I squeezed and rubbed on his head, I noticed my hand was wet. "He's got a drooling problem."
It seemed like most people wouldn't want a cat who drools- cat people like cats because they don't do things like drool all over you. His disposition was so sweet, though and his big bulky body suggested that he would be a good playmate for the animals I already had at home. 2 weeks went by, during which I started to realise I was talking about Jeff, the Cat Who Drools. Talking about visiting him. Talking about bringing him home. Talking about it ALOT.
When I arrived at the adoption center, Jeff was still at the clinic. I went to the counter and said, "I'm here to inquire about Jeff, the Cat Who Drools. I'd like to take him home."
Jeff's awesome- he wins the heart of everyone who meets him, including my famously grouchy husband.
She's healthy and ready to play. Cara, a deaf Jack Russell Terrier-mix puppy, was rescued after she was found inside a box alongside a busy highway in Brimfield. She's now healthy and ready to enjoy some time with a new family.
One of a Kind Pets in Akron have put Cara up for adoption. An ideal home for the puppy would be to be surrounded with other well-behaved dogs.
Cara received treatment for an upper respiratory infection and a hairline fracture in one of her front legs.
The OKPR Adoption Center, located at 1929 West Market Street, is open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. To ask about Cara, or any of the other animals at OKPR, you can call 330-865-6200.

Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is introducing a new method to help pet owners find a lost or missing dog or cat by creating our new Missing Pet Network.
“If your dog is missing, a dog license tag attached to the collar of your pet is the best way of notifying you if someone finds your pet” Scalise stated.
You will be able to post a picture and information of when the pet was last seen on our website. All posts will remain on our site for 30 days.
If anyone finds a lost dog that is wearing a Summit County dog tag, they can visit Kristen’s Kanine Search to locate the owner.
Ohio law requires that you license your dog; a license tag attached to the dog’s collar proves ownership and is your pet’s ticket home. Dogs without tags can be impounded. 2012 dog licenses can be purchased beginning December 1 through January 31, 2012. Do the right things for your dog to keep him happy and safe.
