406 Days and Nights

Today we want to share the story of a dog who spent over HALF his life in a kennel before finding his perfect family.

For some dogs, the stress of shelter life brings out the worst. And so it was for Argus…

But that made it hard for adopters to see the ‘good boy’ underneath it all.

That’s why we’re so grateful to you for making our new doggie playground possible.

“St. Francis Bark Park changed everything for Argus,” says our Adoption Center Manager. “Before, dogs might spend 22 hours a day in their kennel. But our playgroups mean they can run and play and socialize. And it means families can see the real dog outside of the stressful kennel environment. It’s completely changed the way we do adoptions.”

After 406 days and nights of waiting, his miracle came. Iris and her family (including a new canine sister, Freya) are prepared to keep up his training.

After all, he’s still just a big baby… “He’s come so far,” says Iris proudly. “He’s a big goofball… he loves laps, he loves to be wrapped in a blanket. We all love him so very much.” Thank you for giving every dog the chance to feel the love of a real family, no matter how long it takes.

We hope you’re enjoying these weekly feel-good stories YOU made PAWssible!
