Carter's Story...
Hi my name is Carter and I am the most handsomest SIberian Husky on the planet. I am also full of myself - can you tell? You are not going to believe what happened to me and how I came to be with Paws 4 Humanity Inc. I was actually rescued from the gas chamber at the Vermillion, LA animal shelter. And you wonder how did I end up in the gas chamber with very little time to live? Well here is my story:

It all started when my previous owner who was a college student went off to college and left me to live with her mom and dad. Shortly after my owner left for college her mom and dad ended up moving and did not take me with them but instead tied me to a tree in the back yard. I was scared as no one was there to help me or take care of me. Then a wonderful good samaritan lady came (I don't know how she found out about me) who lived about 20 minutes away from where I was left in the back yard, and came to my rescue. She actually worked for a group called Vermillion Aide which is a group that helps the animals get rescued from the Vermillion, LA gas chamber and kill shelter.

She rescued me from the yard and then took me to the shetler with the hope that once the shelter took me in they would find my original family and punish them for leaving and not taking care of me. It's no surprise and I am sure you probably know that a Siberian Husky in Louisana is like a Polar Bear in Arizona, no one wanted to rescue me.

Well I ended up facing the Vermillion gas chamber with one day left to live until Paws 4 Humanity Inc, a rescue in Florida, caught wind of my situation and stepped up and took me in. Paws 4 Humanity Inc and the many people who worked hard to get me out of the shelter and transported me to Orange Park, FL saved my life. I am grateful to all of them.

And yes, everyone who thinks the gas chambers are outlawed - not completely true. The gas chambers will all be gone by Jan 2013. So I was one of many good animals who undeservingly got caught in a very bad situation and was facing one of the few remaining gas chambers. Through a monumental effort across state lines a transport was set up 8 legs long and I traveled with all of the good samaritan volunteers who drove me from Vermillion, LA to Orange Park, FL where I met the president and one of the volunteers for Paws 4 Humanity Inc. What a happy day that was as photos were taken of me as if I was a movie star all along the transport route. When I made it to Orange Park, FL the president of Paws 4 Humanity met the transport and gave me a big hug as I got out of the transport vehicle and said to me "Welcome home. We love you Carter. You are safe now."

So here I am and after being with my foster family for about 3 weeks, and having my snip snip surgery, I am now looking for my forever home. I am an absolute great dog if I say so myselt. I am 2 years old, very well mannered, house trained, crate trained and obedience trained. I can be a goof ball at times but that's the husky in me. I love going for walks and romping around in the yard, play with toys and just be an absolute ham. When I go for walks I strut my stuff through the neighborhood with my head up high and my nose in the air as if I am saying to everyone "Welcome the stud muffin to the neighborhood." How else can this chick magnet pick up chicks. I have to show them what I have, even after being snipped snipped.

If you are interested in meeting me and getting entertained and whooed of your feet by my rock star personality please contact Paws 4 Humanity Inc at 904 771-9516 or email at to request an adoption application which is the first step in their adoption process. Once your adoption application is approved you will then be able to me yours truly, and hopefully make that awesome connection needed to bring me home. I am so deserving of a forever family after all that I have been through as I am truly the Siberian Husky with the million dollar smile. My story is truly a story of hope - coming from the gas chamber to your home would be the fairy tale ending to my story. I hope to meet you soon! Love and kisses - Carter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Carter, a Jacksonville Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Husky for sale in Jacksonville, or seeking a Husky dog from a breeder in Jacksonville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jacksonville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Jacksonville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Husky breeders who help with Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jacksonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
