Hard times are hard on two-legged creatures. But they may be harder on the four-legged ones, who can’t necessarily understand or certainly express why they’ve been abandoned by those they loved. Nene, a 2-year-old Chihuahua and Jack Russell mix, was surrendered with her sibling when her owner fell on hard times. Now the SPCA is trying to find the pair a forever home.
Nene is shy with new people and surroundings initially but warms up quickly and becomes your little shadow once she gets to know you. She is a calm girl whose soulful, big, brown eyes will just melt your heart.
To meet Nene, 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 spca914.org.
