Lisa and BIG 100 present the "12 Strays of Christmas" presented by Northwest Federal Credit Union!
Every weekday, Lisa will highlight a different homeless animal from local shelters including A Forever Home in Chantilly, VA and the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center in Derwood, MD and encourages listeners to adopt them or another pet at their own local shelter.
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 5 - December 12: Chico!
Chico is a lovable gentle giant. Chico has been with the MCASAC shelter since February 27, 2018. He yearns for human love, interaction, easy walks and a home. He is about 5 years old and prefers to be your only furlove in your home!
Day 4 - December 11: Butterbean!
Butterbean has the body of a cat with the heart of a panther. This 13 year old little trooper overcame a broken jaw and has been in the best spirits since. As a purple care participant, his adoption fees are waived. Come to the MCASAC and interact with our affectionate little black cat. He enjoys human interaction and loves rewarding people with purrs. He likes chin, chest, cheek and ear strokes as well as nose to nose greetings. Purrrfect for anyone who loves to cuddle.
Day 3 - December 10: George!
George is a Miniature Poodle who originally came to A Forever Home from a puppy mill. He's a sweet little guy who loves nothing more than cuddling next to you while you watch TV. You are sure to fall in love with his darling personality. George loves dogs and gets along fine with cats as well. Because his vision is limited we feel he will do best in a home without small children who might startle him.
George came to A Forever Home from a shelter (who rescued him from a puppy mill) in March 2018. He came in with his friend Izzy, who was recently adopted. Now it is George's turn to find a forever home!
Day 2 - December 7: Prince!
Hello! I am Prince, a Rat Terrier that loves his humans and dogs. I like to play and give kisses, and go for long walks. I love attention and treats! All I need now is my own forever home with someone to care for me. Will you be the one???
Prince's family dumped him at a shelter last July ☹️ - so he has been at A Forever Home almost a year and a half. The shelter staff loved him and was very grateful that we took him into our adoption program. It's time for Prince to find a forever home.
Day 1 - December 6: Mason!
Mason is a Plott Hound/Mix. He is a puppy trapped in a senior body! Mason is the perfect guy. How can you not love that sweet face and those puppy dog eyes? You wouldn’t know that Mason is 10 years old based on how much energy he has. He loves to go on long walks, and even runs. He will do tricks for you as well if you have some yummy treats!
Mason came to A Forever Home in March of 2018. He is a wonderful dog who deserves a forever home. He came to us from a shelter in South Carolina who reached out to us during one of the horrible storms that hit the southeastern United States this past Spring.
