Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I’ll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!


Animal Friends

Ulysses is looking for a second chance this holiday season! This now happy pup had a tough beginning, and is looking for responsible owners that can give him lots of love an positive reinforcement.

Animal Friends says:
“Ulysses is one of our lucky dogs who came to us from an unlucky situation. Ulysses came into Animal Friends through our Humane Investigations Department. He was emaciated, lethargic and stressed. We had to perform surgery to remove a foreign body from his stomach. It ended up being a baby’s pacifier.

“Through slow feedings and the loving care of the volunteers and staff we were able to bring Ulysses back to acting like a happy and healthy dog. Due to his rough past, Ulysses is in need of an adult only home to practice his good behaviors with his possessions. He is a food and resource guarder. He needs to be in a positive training home to work with him and to show that the world is not a scary place.

“Ulysses would like to be the only animal in the home, no other dogs or cats. He is a wonderful boy looking for a second chance in a real home. If you think you can offer him love and affection please come and meet him.

“Someone believes in Ulysses so much that they have sponsored his adoption! He truly is priceless!”

Ulysses has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
