Trixie is a very loving girl who was abandoned outside by her original owner. We believe that she is approximately 1 year old but it is hard to be certain due to her living conditions and lack of nutritious food. She did well with the other dogs in the home of the person who rescuted her and was wonderful with her children. This girl just wants a family to love who loves her in return.
We are animal lovers. We hate the idea of putting an animal down -- for any reason. However, unlike other shelters, we take-in all animals -- including abused and medically neglected animals. There are times when an animal is simply so vicious that we can not responsibly adopt the pet to a family. We have, at other times, been told by our veterinarian, that it is not humane to extend the life of a very sick animal. We make every effort to find homes for every animal in our care.When our shelter is over-crowded, we rely on a network of "foster families" to take care of our pets. All the while, we have increased our efforts to "get the word out" about our pets (e.g. this website, pictures, newspaper publicity, etc.) Our efforts pay off. The Staff and Board of Directors at the Humane Society love pets, and our actions bear out that simple fact. Our animal guests get the very best care while they are with us. Please help! We need volunteers to help us exercise the dogs. We try to walk the dogs each day to provide them with the exercise and attention they so desperately need. You can volunteer as little or as much as you like. If you would be interested in helping us care for our animal guests, please call the shelter at 814-443-2121.
