***KODA IS A COURTESY LISTING AND IS NOT IN THE CARE OF THE AHS. ALL STATEMENTS OF INTEREST WILL GO DIRECTLY TO KODA'S CURRENT OWNERS***
Koda is an almost 2 year old English black lab. He has quickly learned the basic commands and roams freely around 3 acres in his current home. He has learned to play with the family's jack russel mix and many other dogs. He has learned about chickens and obedience. Koda will be two years old in February. He is up to date on all his vaccines. He is neutered and not chipped. He is a joy and has so much personality and character. Shortly after he turned one year old he had his first seizure. He is now on phenobarbitol and potassium bromide to keep the seizures in check. He loves to hike and is really good with the bike. He likes to swim and is good on the leash with a harness but should be fenced in when unattended. He is good with other dogs and plays rambunctiously. Koda is crate trained, extremely affectionate and loves to cuddle on the couch. Other than his seizures he is in great health and has and excellent coat. If you are interested in Koda, please fill out a statement of interest form @ www.alternativehumanesociety.com (under the ADOPT menu).
Rescue Group Info...
The Alternative Humane Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit animal welfare organization serving Whatcom County, WA. AHS has been helping animals and educating the public since 1977.
We have no shelter, office, or paid staff. Our programs include Canine Foster & Adoption, Spay & Neuter Assistance, and Community Cats Information and Referral.
Mission Statement: The Alternative Humane Society of Whatcom County is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to improving the lives of dogs and cats and helping them find and stay in permanent loving homes.
Our goals are:
• To make Whatcom County a community where no healthy animals are euthanized
• To prevent unwanted dog and cat births through spay and neuter assistance
• To cultivate respect and awareness for the needs of animals through education
• To advocate for the humane treatment of dogs and cats in all areas of life
We can be found showing off our loveable dogs at Petco on Bakerview and Guide Meridian in Bellingham on the 1st and 2nd weekend of each month. We also hold an adopt-a-thon the third Saturday of every month at Pet Palace, also on the Guide Meridian in Bellingham. All our showings are between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Come on out and say hi!
AHS does not do same-day adoptions. We provide a form called a “Statement of Interest” for potential adopters to fill out. When completed, this form is reviewed by an AHS volunteer (the animal’s Case Manager) who will contact the potential adopter with any additional questions and arrange a meeting if it looks like a good match. The potential adopter usually hears back from a volunteer within 2-3 days, but since many of our volunteers also work at full-time jobs, the entire process can take longer. Although we try our very best we usually will not be able to contact every person who submits a Statement of Interest, we reserve our limited resources for those who look like a good match.
Dogs under 18 months – $170
Dogs over 18 months – $145
Senior dogs (older than 8 years) – $95
