When he’s not patrolling national parks preventing forest fires, he’s loving life in foster care in Brooklyn. This 10 year old 15 pound active, happy, friendly, smart, perky “big-dog-in-tiny-package” is officially ready to accept adoption applications!
For all those who stopped at our Petcon booth last weekend, we thank you for showing love to our adoptable dogs and cats! Two full days at Petcon 2018: 44 adoptable animals from 14 local rescue groups, 50 volunteer animal handlers, and 2 of Chloe’s Fospice Friends. This was a huge team effort to continue Building a Foster Community. 20 adoptable cats, 24 adoptable dogs. What an incredible weekend!
