“Founded in 1961, "Buddy Dog", as it is affectionately known is a not for profit animal welfare organization dedicated to finding new homes for homeless dogs and cats. The Society is incorporated with one main objective, "giving a new lease on life to impounded dogs and cats". Buddy Dog accepts homeless dogs and cats, in good health and of friendly disposition, which could, without our help, be destroyed. These animals find refuge at our shelter and can depend on becoming someone\'s forever friend. There is no time limit on their stay. ”
A great place to find the right dog
The people at Buddy Dog are so helpful. They really take the time to get to know the people and the dogs so they can make great adoptions happen! Because they are a well known shelter, you should try to visit during their weeknight hours. You'll find it a lot easier to meet the dogs and talk to the people about adoption and a dogs background. The people who work there also have a lot of good information about local trainers and ideas on how to work on your adopted dog's weak areas.
Its obvious that the staff and volunteers at Buddy Dog love animals. Jethro was with them for 6 months before we adopted him, and they were all so nice to him and us during the process. Some volunteers come on their off day to say goodbye and actually cried the day we took him home. (we knew he must be a good dog if they all liked him that much!) They have someone who comes in and gives them weekly massages! i highly recommend adopting from them.
Buddy Dog helped me find my forever home!
Buddy Dog Humane Society brought Ben and his siblings up from West Virginia, and helped them all to find forever homes. When he came to Buddy Dog, he had Sarcoptic Mange and a bite wound - he was examined and treated for both, and given a clean bill of health before they would allow him to be adopted. Buddy Dog was excellent about helping us deal with Ben's specific challenges - he wasn't well socialized, and he was very timid, and they gave us helpful tips as to how to deal with both when we brought him home. They worked with us throughout the adoption process to confirm landlord permission, and we were all (Ben included!) generally happy with the staff here. They really do a great job, and they help so many dogs find homes. I highly recommend supporting them in any way possible.
