Like father, like son

If 8-year-old Wilson and 2-year-old Finn resemble one another, that’s because they’re father and son.

Or at least that’s what the SPCA thinks. It’s not as if the organization could ask them when they came in as strays. The SPCA figured they’d been spooked by fireworks as so many people were setting off fireworks even before July 4th and that someone would come in to claim them. Sadly, no one has come forward. 

Which is a shame, since they are quite a pair. Finn is sweetly energetic but not as energetic as you’d expect a Beagle his age, probably because he follows around his dad, who is more mellow. Wilson is a total ham. He loves everyone and wants nothing more than to sit next to you and get this belly rubbed. He also loves to carry his toy around with him like a binky. (Hey, who’s the kid and who the dad?) 

Although these two are different in age, the SPCA hopes they can find a home together since they have clearly been together their entire lives and find comfort in each other. They are good with other animals, too, and seem to do well with everyone they meet.

To meet Wilson and Finn, visit the SPCA of Westchester at 590 N. State Road in Briarcliff Manor. 

Founded in 1883, the SPCA is a no-kill shelter and is not affiliated with the ASPCA. The SPCA is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. To learn more, call 914- 941-2896 or visit
