Laser beams seem totally appropriate for this shot of Moonbeam the adoptable cat, who poses with volunteer and marketing coordinator Michelle Dumas and is described as a “sweet” girl in her bio for the Chesapeake Humane Society. These un-fur-gettable #PetGlamourShots were taken in honor of Homeless Animal Awareness Week, a regional event that spans across fifteen Virginia animal shelters and promotes adoption, spay/neuter, volunteerism, and other actions that benefit homeless pets.
Operations manager Alison Fechino went all in, donning a cone of shame for her snap with Darby. “She has a wound from a rope or collar under her armpit,” Fechino tells PEOPLE of the adoptable cat, described as a very calm and quiet young girl. “Happily, we operate a low-cost spay/neuter clinic here too so we had a large dog cone that I could wear … very much as a prop.”
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
Administrative assistant Becky Reeves does an amazing job daydreaming about Jingle, a handsome tabby who was abandoned on the porch of the shelter last December. “I was adopted on New Year’s Eve. Now I’m back,” says his bio. “The folks here have helped me get back to my old, loving self and I am hoping for a second chance with a loving, understanding adopter.”
WILL YOU ACCEPT THIS ROSE?
Administrative assistant Leslie Mikovits has nothing but love for Terra, a frisky 4-month-old domestic shorthair who came to the Chesapeake Humane Society as a transfer from Chesapeake Animal Services where she was turned in as a stray.
Trixie, posing here with licensed veterinary technician Devon Heath, is as fun as they come. “[She] is fearless,” says operations manager Alison Fechino. “She’s always the first one to dive into a new pile of toys or greet a visitor. She loves climbing to the top of our cat tower and leaping from ledge to ledge.”
HE HAS A SPARK!
It’s fireworks for outreach coordinator Teresa Stephens and easy-on-the-eyes Ty, a stunning black kitty who just unpacked his bags at the shelter. Interested in adopting any of these cuties? Click here to learn how!
