My story

Let's talk about Herbie and Husker this morning!!!!! These two are sweet as sweet can be and love to give and get loves from our employees. They are also two pups who make our hearts hurt a bit and remind us why we do what we do....to help these innocent animals in times of need.
Herbie and Husker are 9 year old male lab mixes that are bonded. These boys experienced trauma a couple years ago that has left them with many fears and now they are without a home, so they desperately need our help!! These pups were in their home when a tornado demolished the home a couple years ago. Both pups and their family had to be rescued/removed by first responders.
They have made a full recovery physically but are still scared of many things, especially sirens. The loud shelter environment is terrifying for these sweet boys and we are hoping we can get them into foster asap to get them to a calmer/more stable environment.
Herbie and Husker have been farm dogs most of their lives. They are used to roaming during the day, then coming inside to sleep at night. These boys are great with kids, cats, dogs, and all new friends. They are overall love bugs and know no strangers.
These two need our help to teach them leash skills, monitor their food so they can drop a few pounds, and help build their confidence. The shelter is not the right place for them.
Do you have room in your home to foster Herbie and Husker while we find a furever placement for them? They need someone who can be patient with them while teaching them that a leash won't hurt them. A farm environment would be great for these boys, but they also would transition very well into a loving home in town.
Are you interested? You can fill out the foster application at https://petstablished.com/foster_form/26127/genericLet
Let's work together to help these boys who are loyal, loving, and sweet as can be. They are amazing dogs who need our help today!!!
We are also hoping to raise enough funds to get a trainer in to work with these angels and their fear of the loud noises.
Together....we can save them all!!!

Why adoption is a great option

Herbie & Husker, a Blair Mixed Breed (Large) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mixed Breed (Large) for sale in Blair, or seeking a Mixed Breed (Large) dog from a breeder in Blair.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Blair already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Blair breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mixed Breed (Large) breeders who help with Mixed Breed (Large) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Blair paves the way for another one to be saved.
