As we try to provide enriching activities for the dogs in the rescue waiting for homes, the toys were used for that purpose. CC (pictured, right) is a young male Catahoula leopard dog-beagle mix. CC says: “I am a fun, awesome, wonderful boy in need of a loving home! I am not exactly sure of my mix, but one thing is for sure and that is that I am a wonderful and cute boy! I was picked up as a stray by an animal shelter, but my old owner never came to get me. A place called a rescue did come for me and that is how I ended up here looking for a new home to call my own!
