Looking for a home: Penny

In its first month, Close to Home Animal Rescue has completed six adoptions and, this past weekend, had three more success stories pending.

Now it's Penny's turn.

"She has been waiting longer than any of our dogs for a home," said co-founder Amy Quinlan. "If people could see her personality in some pics and an article, I just know they would fall in love with her."

Penelope/Penny is a 5-year-old female mixed breed who was found wandering the streets with her sister and ended up at Portage County Pound. Her sister was adopted, but she was not.

"We just fell in love with Penny's eyes and we hope that someone else out there will, too," according to her Petfinder page. "Penny is so special and so sweet, and despite her size she just wants to be your lap dog."

Penny is up-to-date with routine shots, spayed and doing excellent with house-training. She is also good with other dogs.

The rescue has reduced her adoption fee to $75 to help find her a home sooner. If you are interested, please e-mail ASAP.

In other Close to Home news, co-founder Gina Lutes has scheduled the group's first official Adopt-a-Thon from noon to 3 p.m. Jan. 30 and Jan. 31 at Petsmart in Mayfield Heights. Remember Precious and her pups? They'll be there, too.
