Facts about Pumba

Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
I am already neutered.
****I AM A HIDDEN GEM****
Why hello there! My name is Pumba and I am a sweet older guy looking to find my forever home. I'm on Santa's "Nice" list, so I'm really hoping that I've been good enough for him to find me a forever home before the holidays. I came to the Humane Rescue Alliance because my previous owner could no longer care for me. OH DEAR! I am happy to be safe and sound at the shelter but I am eager to find my new best buddy as soon as possible. I would love to find a family to cuddle with while we binge watch some Netflix or finish a good book. However, even at eleven, I am still active and would love to go on nice walks with my new family around the neighborhood. Please come see me and I promise to make you smile!
As a Hidden Gem, I get my very own volunteers who spend extra time with me and work with me on basic training needs. That way, I’ll be extra ready to settle into my new home! And, because I’ve been here a little bit longer than my friends, staff have had the opportunity to get to know me really well, and they will gladly answer any questions you may have about me.
As an extra "thank you" for considering taking me home, my adoption fee has been waived*! *Standard adoption procedures apply.
