Great big beautiful brown eyes and the sweetest personality in the world describe this wonderful little girl. She must have been named Freckles, as she has lots of golden freckles. Owner surrendered to a crowded shelter in California, nice folks made arrangements for her to be transported to Bellingham where, it was hoped, she would have a better chance at finding a loving home. Freckles’ foster mom thinks she is just the best dog ever. She is loving, calm, wants to please and is good with the resident cats and dogs. She has not yet been heard to bark. She has already figured out how to use the doggie door and is making wonderful progress on learning to go outside. As Freckles is a California girl, going potty outside in rainy Bellingham was not what she considered a pleasant thing. She has made wonderful strides and now is one of the first out the door. Freckles would be an ideal dog for a retired couple who have the time for her. She travels well, loves to go and apparently does not bark. She is friendly with everyone and everything. Being part Chihuahua, Freckles has an intense desire to be with you. A busy family with minimal time for her would not be the best. She wants to be with you but is not clingy. She is just simply wonderful. If you are looking for a friendly, cuddly, respectful and sweet companion, Freckles will be the girl for you. Please fill out a statement of interest form on the ADOPT tab at www.alternativehumanesociety.com.
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
