Why Choose me?
Peter is here as a ‘cruelty case’. His owners moved out of their rental and left Peter behind, chained in the yard with no food, water or shelter. No one knew he was there until the landlord found him, a barely breathing pile of bones. If it hadn’t rained, he’d have died of dehydration. Peter actually looks much better now than he did when he first arrived – he was so weak he couldn’t walk and had to be rushed to the vet twice to be brought back from the brink. Peter is out of the woods now, on a special recovery diet and ready to be adopted or rescued. As you can see from his videos, Peter is all wags and kisses despite his abandonment. He happily trotted into the interaction pen with us and trades wags and kisses for pets and treats. A couple of months of high quality food and lovin’ Peter will be a satiny, sleek beauty. He’s getting lots of practice stealing hearts here at Animal Control, so be warned when you come visit him! We’ll be adding a couple of videos of Peter shortly.
