95 Years of Moments Like These
Roscoe was brought to our shelter when his family was regrettably unable to care for him anymore. He was 10 years old and cute as a button, but had some health issues that could make finding an adopter difficult. Roscoe was blind in both eyes, and from what we could tell, he was most likely deaf as well.
Between his age and handicaps, we worried how Roscoe would find his forever home.
One day a little girl and her mom came into the shelter with a unique request. The little girl wanted a senior dog to care for and to give the best life possible in its remaining years.
Of course, we had to introduce the pair to Roscoe! They spent a significant amount of time interacting with him, but it didn’t take long before they knew he was the one.
That little girl found her new family member that day, and Roscoe found his. Despite his special needs, there was someone who would love him and care for him after all – a little girl who came into the shelter looking for a friend just like him.
Special moments like these are what have kept us going since 1921.
In 2016, we’re celebrating 95 years of saving lives.
95 years of watching companionships blossom through animal adoptions.
95 years of reuniting lost pets with their families.
95 years of protecting Washington County public health and safety.
What started in a one room building in 1921 has grown into a progressive animal welfare organization that offers a plethora of services to the community.
Please join us in celebrating these very special 95 years. Our Roaring Twenties gala is taking place at Fountain Head Country Club on October 22. There is only one week left before the big night and we would love for you to celebrate with us
