Hi! My name is Huey! I am sure glad VOCAL came to my rescue! I had been taken care of for a while but sadly my people left me at a truck stop one night. I waited and waited but they didn't come back for me. Luckily, VOCAL came and picked me up and now I'm waiting for my forever home. In the meantime, I am in a foster home with lots of other dogs. I get along great with all of them - young and old, large and small. I am learning more about house manners and making straight "As" in potty training - as long as I can get outside when I need to. I'm getting better at this stuff! I also sleep quietly in a crate at night. I'm crazy about food so my foster mom is making me sit quietly in my crate before she will give me my breakfast and dinner, It's so HARD because I am SO EXCITED!!! Sigh. I do well with "sit" and I'm learning "lie down". "Stay" is going to be challenging. I love to jump and with my long legs I can jump really well - but foster mom is teaching me not to jump on her and I am getting better at that too. I really want to please my humans and I am working hard to hear those words, "Good dog Huey!" One other think you might like to know about me....I am also a bit crazy about chasing squirrels. They run around up in those trees and I get really focused. I would jump up that tree if I could and sometimes I try. I am a pretty energetic boy but after a while of squirrel chasing and playing with the other dogs, I am happy to get cuddled and petted by my foster mom and snuggle down for a nap. She says I am really soft and that my brown eyes are full of love. Life is getting better since that truck stop - I just need to find a forever family I can call my own. Love, Huey

About VOCAL - Voices of Change Animal League, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We have seen the issues of pet overpopulation firsthand. Our board members, staff and volunteers have worked with local animal shelters and have seen the thousands of animals in Marion County that have nowhere to go, who are often abandoned and/or killed. We also recognize the strength of the human-animal bond and have witnessed the situations that animals often fall into during a family crisis. We have made it our mission to help these animals. We hope you will join us!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We don't have a shelter facility; all of our animals are in foster care. We think this is pretty great! Having adoptable animals in foster homes teaches them pet manners such as housebreaking and social skills. It also allows us to learn a lot about the animals and helps us determine the type of home the animal will be most successful in.

If you are wondering how to meet an animal you are interested in adopting, you have to fill out an application first. Then, if we feel you could be a fit, we set up a home visit and meet and greet with the animal.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption fee for both dogs and cats, an application, and a home visit. We end the process with our adoption contract.

If you are interested in applying for one of our animals, please visit our website www.vocalforpets.org. Our dog and cat applications can be found under the "Paperwork" heading or on the "Adopt" page.

We accept multiple applications on all of our animals; we believe in finding the best fit home. We don't place animals on a first come, first serve basis. Once we receive your application, we will reach out to you to review your application if we feel you could potentially provide the best fit home for the animal.
