We have a wonderful Shelter Success Story to share with you all. This sweet boy, Ollie, was with us for over a year and a half, spending most of his time in a foster home. Ollie had a hard time trusting people (especially men), but he truly is a spunky, lovable boy who just needed another patient family to love him for life.

Thankfully, after over a year of waiting, the perfect family came on by. We could not be happier!

“When I lost my dog Sparky I hesitated getting another dog for fear of ever experiencing that heartache again. Then I saw Ollie and something in his eyes told me he needed me as much as I needed him. Within a few weeks he has changed from a scared, shy dog to a happy playful boy whose personality shines through more every day.

He has filled a hole in my heart and a missing piece in the family . I cannot give enough praise and thanks to the Humane Society, the fosters, and trainer who never gave up on him.”
