This week the Pet of the Week focuses on PUPPIES! About two weeks ago, 5 little puppies were finally caught and brought to the Cayman Islands Humane Society. These puppies were born in the wild and were incredibly nervous. Happily, they have had two weeks of good food and loving cuddles at the shelter and are now starting to trust humans.
They are approximately 8 to 12 weeks old and are at the end of their socializing learning period, so it is important that they are either fostered or adopted as soon as possible so they can get used to all the scary human things that they haven't seen before. They are also spayed and neutered, had two of three vaccinations and are microchipped and have been de-wormed.
I am currently fostering Hobo, FKA Angus. I have had him at the house for two days and he is learning that doors, cars and steps are nowhere near as scary as they first seem. I am sure that in two weeks he will be much more confident than he is now.
The puppies are at the Cayman Islands Humane Society outside puppy room and can be seen in the video below.
They have the softest puppy fur and are relying on humans to teach them how wonderful this world can be and settle into their new furever home. As we always say, if you can't foster or adopt, you can visit and play with the puppies, or walk an older dog. You can also help right now by simply clicking SHARE. The puppies at the Cayman Islands Humane Society will LOVE you for it.
