Say hello to your next soul mate. Charlie is a 10 year young basset hound who lost his owner and now looking for a loving family to spend his retirement years with. Charlie is sweet and mellow but has a joyful side to him. Most times his favorite place is on the couch but he enjoys being outdoors going for a leisurely stroll. He greets you at the door with welcoming barks, tail going on full helicopter mode and a big smile on his face. Charlie would like a semi-quite home where he is not left home all day by himself. He will do well with other dogs that are the same energy as him, and is fine with cats. He has suffered chronic ear infections in the past so keeping his ears clean and dry is a must. If you are looking for a mellow partner Charlie is your man. Please fill out a statement of interest at 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
