The 2011 Center for Animal Health & Welfare Holiday Cards are now available; Help homeless shelter animals.

The 2011 Center for Animal Health and Welfare holiday cards are now available for purchase to help raise money for the Center.  Each pack of eight 5×7 cards (2 each of 4 designs) costs $20.00 and all proceeds go directly to the animals at the Center.  You can choose a cat pack or a dog pack or get one or more of both!  If there is one particular style that you like best, you can also order one pack of 25 cards for $60.00.  All of the animals featured on the cards are residents of the CAHW and some of them have been there for 1 or 2+ years.  We are hoping not only to raise some money but also to raise awareness of our homeless pets and find them homes for the holidays.  If you are interested in adopting one of our homeless pets or in purchasing a pack or two of our cards, please visit the Center in Easton www.healthyanimalcenter.com or contact me directly at mail@tracybodeo.com .  Thank you to our sponsors who helped cover the cost of printing: “A Furry Tail Come True” Doggie Daycare and Boarding www.afurrytailcometrue.com  (Hellertown, PA), AVH Veterinary Group www.avhvet.vetsuite.com (Pen Argyl, PA) and Bob & Joanie Thompson of Thompson Photo Arts- nature and wildlife photography http://thompsonphotoarts.com.  Thank you for your support!

Pet of the Week- “AJ” the rabbit; adopt him at the Center for Animal Health & Welfare; pet portraits by tracy bodeo photography

“AJ” is a young (~7 month old), large, male rabbit who was brought in with his siblings.  He is very sweet and doesn’t mind being pet or held.  Rabbits can be litter box trained and make nice pets when given the love and attention they deserve.

Cats from the Center for Animal Health and Welfare can now be seen at Petco in Easton.

In an effort to get more of the many, many cats from the Center for Animal Health and Welfare seen and adopted, Petco on 25th Street in Easton, PA, will now be housing several cats from the Center.  There were 4 cats brought to Petco last Sunday and two (Tootsy and Jonah) have already been adopted.  Hadley and Esky (both young females) are still waiting.  Please come and visit them (or their many friends at the Center) if you are considering bringing a new cat into your life.

“Meet Fabulous Faye”; pet portraits by Tracy Bodeo; Bethlehem, Easton, Allentown pet photography.

Recently I had the pleasure of working with this sweet, gorgeous dog and her parents.  Faye was adopted from the Center for Animal Health and Welfare several years ago.  The love between Faye and her parents is apparent and so nice to witness.  Faye is part German Shepard and part Rottweiler, two breeds that are considered by some to be a bit scary because they are big and dark-colored.  Five minutes with Faye would make a Shepard/Rottie-lover out of anyone– what a loving, affectionate, sweetie-pie (and quite the athlete- she even throws herself her own toys!).   Here are a few images from our session:
