Buckus causes no ruckus

Buckus is a senior dog who was surrendered by his owners because they could no longer care for him.

The sweetie is at Philadelphia’s Animal Care and Control, at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave.

Buckus is an 8-year-old male pit bull who likes kids, is affectionate and playful, likes fetch, and still has plenty of energy.

Adoption hours are weekdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ••

Wally has eye on adoption

Wally was rescued from the streets by animal control. He came in with severe eye infections, which resulted in the removal of his left eye. His right eye was treated and left intact with the hope of saving it. He is in the care of Northeast Animal Rescue. He has limited vision, but still runs, climbs and jumps. He is extremely affectionate and gets along with the other cats and two large dogs in his home.

Wally, 2, is neutered and current on vaccinations and has tested negative for the feline immunodeficiency and leukemia viruses. For information or to fill out an application, visit ••
