BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - In today's edition of the Pet Of The Week, we meet Ward, a Basset Hound Mix from the North Florida Animal Rescue.
He is 16 months old and is now up for adoption.
Whitney Sinclair and daughter Alexa Sinclair are now fostering the animal. They explained what would make this pup a great addition to the family and also some of the cautions to take.
"He is really a great dog. we do recommend no cats, just be cautious with smaller dogs because he is built very solid and I don't think sometimes he knows his ow strengths," said Whitney.
North Florida Animal Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers that help rescue animals from local high kill shelters in the Panhandle area of NW Florida. The volunteers help network, transport, foster, and take the animals for needed vet services and anything else needed to save the urgent animals. They help with the dogs and cats when they have no other place to go. We try and don't quit until the animals have found a forever home.
We are a foster-based rescue which means we do not have a shelter facility. We do not have hours and rely on volunteers who all work full time jobs. If you would like to make an appointment to see a dog in foster care, please submit an application and once approved, our fosters would be happy to accommodate you.
To get started:
1. Fill out an adoption application. Once we receive the application, a representative will be in touch.
2. Pass applicable checks (vet, landlord and home visit)
3. Set up a meet and greet!
The adoption fee includes your dog/cat to be up to date on vaccines, dewormed, microchipped, spayed/neutered and current on monthly flea/tick/HW preventatives. The adoption fee also includes transport costs.
