Pet of the Week

Meet Baxter

this pint-sized boy is believed to be Dachshund and Chihuahua and is the funniest combination of ornery. He was acting as “big man on campus” and showing his pearly-whites so we pulled him so that he didn’t get his tiny-self in trouble. We had to lasso him to get him in the car but immediately – and I mean immediately – he ran across the seats and into my lap and rewarded me with kisses all over my face. This guy was nothing but one big “acting job” while at Summit County Animal Control and he was going to try anything he could to get out of there. The car was very familiar to him and he loved his “golden-ticket” ride to his foster care providers. Thought to be just a couple years old, this guy gets along with other dogs beautifully and tries very hard to instigate play. No baggage and fun – and quite the actor – little Baxter is going to be a great addition to some lucky family. Don’t delay … let’s get him back to the “good life” today. Call 234.706.5501 to schedule a “meet and greet.”

Pay It Forward For Pets is a 501c3 non profit organization that helps improve the lives of both people and “rescued” pets through special programs. The organization manages 6 programs that directly benefit the public and offers human resources and funding to county shelters and local rescue organizations in collaboration efforts to expedite adoptions and end euthanasia.

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
