Washington is a shepherd mix puppy who had a horrible start in life in the hands of a neglectful person. Washington hasn't learned that people can be kind but we are working to let him know that at the end of each hand with a treat in it is a loving, caring person. Without the devotion and patience of our wonderful volunteers, there would be no hope for Washington, but everyone is determined to see him and his brothers thrive.
Washington is too fearful to go into a foster home, so he is in boarding. We are desperately seeking sponsors to help offset the costs of his nightly room and board, as well as of his neutering, vaccines and deworming. Can you please help Washington with a gift in any amount? Please click on DONATE and indicate that you wish to help Washington learn what it's like to be loved. Thank you.
