Look who’s coming back πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

Remember Stanley? A 6-7 year old Red-tick Coonhound, who had walked himself into a kill shelter, searing for food. He made his way to us, and started his pursuit to a brand new life. He was adopted in December, during our rescue drive. He will be returning to our shelter tomorrow, due to no fault of his own. Stanley will be hanging out at our shelter, while we begin searching for his new home.

Stanley is a very goofy guy, who always keeps us laughing. He loves walks, treats, people, and other dogs. He will need a feline free home, and would prefer someone who can spend lots of time with him.

We will re-assess his kennel training, and potty training, once he is back. He will be available for visitors, and will be accepting applications immediately.

Stanley is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, has been dewormed, and has been given monthly flea and tick preventative.

His adoption fee is $85 but his potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.
