Beginning Thursday, December 7th through Friday, December 22nd, Lisa and BIG 100 present the "12 Strays of Christmas!" 

Every weekday during the Noon hour, Lisa will highlight a different homeless animal from local shelters including the Montgomery County Adoption Center and Loudoun County Animal Services and encourage listeners to adopt them or another pet at their own local shelter.

Check back every day to see all 12 pets as they are added!

Do you already have an adopted pet you love? Share a photo of them on social media using the hashtag #12Strays and we will be sharing our favorites to the BIG 100 Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages!

Day 3, December 11: Audi!

Audi is a 7-year old bull terrier mix. This handsome guy has been at the shelter since January, with very few adoption prospects. Audi is about 6 years old, but has the energy and vitality of a much younger dog. If you're looking for a pal who can go go go, Audi may just be your man. This boy is full of energy all the time, and is always up for anything. He's great at fetch, loves learning new tricks, and also enjoys a good snuggle. Audi is probably too rambunctious to live in a home with a cat, and is selective about what dogs he will get along with.

Day 2, December 8: Icy and Feisty!

Icy and Feisty are both 10-year old domestic short-hairs; they are a bonded pair which means they need to be adopted together. These two beautiful girls are sisters and have been living with each other for 10 years, and there's no way we're going to separate them now!

Both girls are stunning, and they LOVE attention. Icy, the more social of the two, will approach you without hesitation and beg to be pet. Feisty is a little more reserved, but loves to play with any toy you bring her. They will sit in your lap and purr all day long.These two ladies have been waiting far too long. Will you give them the home they deserve?

Day 1, December 7: Rico!

Meet Rico! This 10 year old Staffordshire Terrier mix still has the energy of a young pup, and he is so excited to show you everything he can do! He knows "sit," "down," and even "stay!" He is bubbly, bouncy and has an awesome attitude despite finding himself living in the shelter as a senior. Staff and volunteers adore this sweet old man. He is easy to walk on a leash, preferring to stay by your side rather than pulling. We don't know much about Rico, but we know he is a total gem and he ...will make someone out there a very lucky dog owner! Rico does well with dogs, cats, and kids! He will fit right in to almost any family!

Even if Rico isn't the right fit for you, stop by our shelter and pay a visit to some of our other senior dogs and cats. If you've adopted a senior pet of your own, please share your story in the comments so people can hear just why having a senior pet is so great!
