Pet Of The Week

A puppy named Topanga visited WITN News at Sunrise as the Pet of the Week Wednesday.

Topanga is a female Hound/Terrier Mix. She came to the Humane Society at just 4 days old. She was bottle fed in foster care.

Topanga loves to give kisses, receive belly rubs, and play with toys. She enjoys playing with her litter mates, but not when they play too rough. She would make an excellent addition to any family.

Topanga still needs to learn house-training and obedience, but volunteers say she is very smart and willing to learn.

All dogs at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, and on heartworm and flea prevention. All dogs 6 months or older are tested for heartworms. Their adoption comes with a small bag of Hill's Science Diet food and a free one month trial of pet health insurance.

If you are interested in adopting Topanga or any of the animals at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina, please contact them at (252) 413-7247 or visit them online at

    There is a shep mix at BCAC that was picked up in Washington yesterday as a stray. He was caught trying to trade stuffed animals for food. He had brought over, during the period of the day, 5 stuffed aniamls to pursuade another dog to trade him for food. This was witnessed by the home owner and then by aniaml control. Our hearts went out to this guy. Hopefully this very smart dog can find a good home before his five days are up.

    I missed her this morning. Would love to see the video. Could you put it up? You do most of the time.
