Phineas was an owner surrender to a local kill shelter as a result of domestic home issues. How could people let their family pet get this matted and neglected?! I guess we'll just never understand people, but what we are doing is pushing for neglect charges against these folks.
But, it's all about Phineas and you can start to see his transformation! The last picture in the tub was actually taken this morning as we scooped him up and got him out of the shelter as fast as we could.
He's feeling better, but would be feeling so much more comfortable in a foster home to decompress and learn what it really means to feel love and affection. He's estimated to be about seven years old and hasn't shown any ill feelings towards us two-legged creatures, as well as though walking around on all four.
He'll get vetted this week, but if you have interest in fostering, or even adopting this well deserving fellow, please email us
