Hello, Dolly! Petite Pup Rescued from Hoarders Needs Forever Home
Say hello to this week's Dog Days guest, Dolly!
Dolly is, surprisingly, fully grown. Weighing maybe 10 pounds, Dolly is definitely a little shy. But, who could blame her? According to Katie Timber, Dolly was brought to the SPCA of SW Michigan after being removed from a hoarding situation. She's comfortable around other animals but is a bit timid around people. Simply, she needs a lot of love.
For reference on her size, here she is on our studio desk standing next to a coffee cup:
Dolly seemed to get along with Katie's other pets but, as always, if you're interested in adopting Dolly and have other animals in the home the SPCA always recommends a meet and greet first. As well, she would do best in a home with older children. Her life has been chaotic so far. Now, its time for her to find a peaceful home so she can remember what its like to be a dog again.
Dolly is fully vaccinated and ready to find her forever home today. You can find adoption information, schedule your meet and greet if you have other animals and more here.
Before You Go...
A lot of people want to help these animals but maybe don't have the resources to permanently take in another animal. That's where fostering comes in and, boy, is the SPCA in need of it.
Today, Katie revealed that 71 animals have been born at the SPCA this year. That's a whole lot of babies needing a whole lot of care. The SPCA does their best but they're getting overcrowded and want to avoid turning away any animals in need. If you are in a position where you can foster I would ask you to seriously consider it. You're not just helping the SPCA avoid overcrowding. You're helping animals become more socialized with people and other animals which makes them easier to find homes for.
If this sounds like something you could do, you can find more information here.
As well, the SPCA is always looking for volunteer and specific donations which, again, is a huge help. You can find a list of desired donated items and volunteer info here.
And, as I always say, if the only thing you can do is share this story so Dolly can find her forever home we sincerely appreciate it!
