The Year of the Dog is rapidly winding down, but these dogs are still hoping for a home! This time of year is a great time to adopt a dog or other animal. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary has over 200 dogs waiting for their forever homes, here are just a few. All photos are courtesy of Best Friends. Martha is a lovely brindle Shepherd mix. She is new to Best Friends, please email [email protected] to learn more about her. Marshall walks nicely on a leash, loves stuffed toys, and gets along well with other dogs.
Cleveland is a Boxer mix who is very shy. He will need a home with a gentle, patient person and would do best with a friendly role model dog. Raquel has lots of energy and loves to play. Although Raquel loves to interact with humans, she’s also content to amuse herself.
Hamlin was born in November 2018. He is a Red Heeler Mix. Puppies tend to be adopted very quickly, so if you’re interested in Hamlin or one of his litter mates, apply right away! Phineas is a senior Chihuahua mix.
And since it almost the Year Of The Pig, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Best Friends Animal Sanctuary also has pigs! (As well as cats, birds, rabbits, horses, and farm animals.)
Lucille is a Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pig who is about five years old. She responds to clicker training and loves belly rubs. Diesel is also a Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pig. He enjoys mud baths and going for walks. Before bring home a pig, please be sure your local zoning board allows pigs. Even “micro pigs” are not permitted in many towns and cities, which is why so many of them end up needing to find a new place to live.
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to visit Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. It is incredible, and if you are an animal lover, I hope you’ll get to experience it for yourself!
