Despite a hard start to life, Sookie radiates such love and kindness. She came to Larimer Humane Society at the age of two with a wire in her jaw, likely from gum surgery that didn't end well, that needed to be removed. The repair took three surgeries before the sutures held long enough for the tissue to heal.
Soco is a Labrador/Rottweiler mix who had a rough start to life. Her first home was with a neglectful owner training her to be a fighting dog. She was taken from that home and briefly adopted by another family, but she was skittish and avoided her new family because of her past experiences with humans, so she was taken to a shelter. Another family adopted her, but she was removed from that home due to abuse.
Milo’s journey to find his forever home began almost a year and a half ago when his owner surrendered him to Larimer Humane Society in May 2015. Things started to look up for Milo when he was adopted in June of 2015 but seven short months later Milo came back to us when his owner surrendered him. Milo was fearful and needed some help adjusting to shelter life in order to find the perfect family, so he was enrolled in our “Pets Needing Patience” program. Throughout his stay at Larimer Humane Society Milo received special handling, extra attention from staff and volunteers, daily calming spray and clicker training.
When three-year old Charlie’s humans came to Larimer Humane Society, they fell in love with his wagging tail and enthusiasm for treats. They couldn’t resist taking him out to play, even though they hadn’t been planning to adopt a new family member that day.
Once they sat in a meeting room with Charlie, he just wanted to be held, and even let them hold him like a baby. That sealed the deal, and Charlie went to his forever home that day.
