Bruno is a 2-year-old pit bull; he is not neutered yet, but a doctor's appointment is scheduled for the procedure. Bruno came to the Shelter as a stray, so not a lot is known about him. However, staff (and FKF board members) have learned that he is the sweetest boy and didn't show any aggression to any of the dogs around him. He absolutely loves attention!
This is Petey, a 5-year-old American Bulldog. He was owner surrendered because he is food aggressive with other dogs, but not people. He gets along great with everyone he meets, and gets along great with other dogs. If he does go to a home with another dog, the owner should feed the dogs in different areas of the house. Petey has a food allergy and is currently on a lamb and rice formula, and his allergies seem to be clearing up. He's neutered and utd on all of his shots. He is an absolute doll and so affectionate. He knows commands.
If you can't adopt a dog this month, Petfinder has listed some easy ways that you can help:
- Donate your Facebook status. Paste this message into the “What’s on your mind?” box at the top of your page: “October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month. Save a life: Adopt a dog!" and link back to the local Shelter's page: https://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=WY37&preview=1
- Contact a local shelter or rescue group and ask if they have a donation wish list or other flyer they’d like to you to post around your office or neighborhood. They may be holding special events for Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month which you can help promote.
- Share an adoptable dog or a Petfinder dog-adoption Happy Tail on your blog, Facebook or Twitter (hashtag #savedogs) page each day of the month.
- Sign up as a foster parent or shelter volunteer then tell your friends how great it is. Contact your local shelter or rescue group, or register in Petfinder's volunteer database. BTW: Just the other day, the Shelter posted on their Facebook page that they needed volunteers! If you can help, contact Phyllis at (307) 686-5249.
