Joe found his forever home on June 11, 2021 thanks to the Petfinder Foundation and! This grant helped us find Joe a loving home and also broadened our foster care program thanks to the interest in Joe.

Joe, a senior Shiba Inu, came to our organization as a surrender bonded with another senior small dog, Bodie. Joe and Bodie were not wanted anymore. We did a senior wellness panel on Bodie and it was discovered that Joe’s best friend was in the final stages of kidney failure and was declining fast.

Joe lost his best friend. Joe was sad in the shelter. He is very sweet but had never been in a shelter environment. Joe did have a senior wellness panel done and his bloodwork was within normal limits. Unfortunately, Joe’s mental health wasn’t doing as well in the shelter environment. He was going back and forth to foster care, but now is in his permanent home! They are very happy with Joe, who enjoys watching birds, lounging around on the couch, and taking naps with his new people!
