TASTC pet of the week

Hello, my name is Shadow! You might recognize me, because I have been featured as TASTC’s Adoptable Pet of the Week before! You see, I have been here at TASTC for over a year now. They have been trying to help me find a suitable home, but so far nothing has quite panned out for me.

Here is my story: I was the beloved pet of a kind elderly lady. I lived with her my entire life. One day, she tripped over me as I was laying in the floor, and broke her hip. Her family gave her the option: to surrender me to TASTC, or they would do the unspeakable. I am so glad TASTC was able to take me in. While I am thankful for this roof over my head, and the kind people who take care of me… I long for a home of my own. I need a person who will love me, and pet me every day. I need to be part of the family.

I have a few particular needs however. I am very scared of loud noises. Even if I hear a far away gunshot, I must get inside immediately. Therefore, I must find a home that either has a large doggie door (no worries, I can wait while you install one), or a home where I can be inside with you and be taken out with supervision. I also either need a fenced yard, or to be taken out on leash each time. For these reasons, it has been hard for me to find my perfect home. I am a dog that provisions must be made for, but if you adopt me you won’t find a more true friend.

My adoption fee has been covered by a kind lady. I am spayed, dewormed, and current on vaccinations. Stop by and meet me any time. You can come to visit the kitties and doggies, we always love extra attention! If you decide to adopt me when you come, there is a short adoption contract to fill out that takes only about 5 minutes.

See you soon, Shadow
