Meet Codie – Needs A Home

This is ‘Codie’. He is a 1-yr old Yorkie-Poo that needs a home. Cody has been neutered, and is up to date on vaccines. We also did a complete shave, to alleviate severe matting.

He has had a stressful time recently, and exhibits some nervousness, which sometimes leads him to be nippy. But he does like people once he has had some time with them. He may not be the best choice for a household with young children, since they can increase his stress level.

He seems to be fine with other animals, but if you have other animals in your home, we would want a ‘meet-and-greet’ to make sure they will get along. And remember, your other animals will need to be up-to-date with vaccines before adopting Codie.



The NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets has confirmed that the Aug. 9th death of a horse in Oswego County resulted from Eastern Equine Encephalitis(EEE). This is the first confirmed case of EEE in New York State in 2018. There was no medical record of the horse’s vaccination status, as the owner was supposedly vaccinating his own horses.

Arboviruses for both West Nile Fever and EEE are found throughout NY state. Please take all necessary precautions to protect your animals this season, including keeping them current on vaccinations.

The NYS Dept. of Health issues a weekly surveillance report tracking these arboviruses state-wide. This .pdf report is available HERE.
