As of today, 9/29/2016, I have been at the shelter for 384 days :-(!
MEET VIPER AKA MR. HAPPY…… Viper is a medium size, goofy and sweet boy that has been waiting for his forever home, well, forever… through no fault of his. You see, Viper was abused in his previous life and though very happy to make a new adult human friend, he is very scared of children. He needs a home with older children or even no children.
Please do not confuse his name, Viper, with the personality of a snake (viper), the staff actually named him Viper because his sleek black coat shines like a new Dodge Viper (sports car). Viper has one blue eye and one black eye that makes for a very striking appearance. He is much more handsome than his picture shows him. Black dogs are very hard to photograph.
Viper is a charter member of P.A.W.S Breakfast Club. We have a volunteer that takes some of the longer term residents out for breakfast. It gives them a chance to spend part of their day out of a pen and become more socialized. Some have never ridden in a car or been through a McDonalds drive through window. They love it. If interested in being part of the Breakfast Club, talk to our Manager.
Call (580-332-5233) or write firstname.lastname@example.org for an application and more information on Mr. Happy or simply drop by between 11-6, M-F and 10-2 on Saturday.
