Frank is a handsome 11-month-old orange tabby who was dumped at the animal shelter because of a medical issue. He remained friendly and affectionate through eight weeks of treatment and is now cured. But Frank has a wandering spirit, and his new owner will need to ensure he doesn’t take any “day trips” outside; he should remain safely inside at all times. To learn more about Frank and other cats and dogs available for adoption, call 642-4324. The volunteer-run Animal Rescue of Tracy has pet adoption fairs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays in the Target wing of the West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road. Animal Rescue of Tracy is also running a photo contest Saturday through June 30. Submissions are on display at the adoption center, and anyone can stop by and cast a vote.
Cindy, a 12-pound, 2-year-old terrier mix, has a laid-back disposition. She is companion-oriented and enjoys being with people. Her ideal home would have a stay-at-home parent or another small dog so she has companionship during the day. Children age 8 or older would be best because of her small size. Cindy travels well in the car and seems to be house trained. She needs some more training but is motivated by treats, which will help. To learn more, call 815-5186 or visit www.eoerescue.org. East of Eden, a nonprofit animal rescue organization, is also looking for people to foster dogs of various sizes.
