This week, my daughter and I signed up to become volunteers for the Quincy Humane Society, I told her we could do this under one condition. We can't bring any home, as much as we want to, we can't. I asked Executive Director Pilar if there were any animals who have been here a while, and without hesitation, she said "Hank!"

Hank has been at the shelter for close to a year now and is still looking for a fur home. I spent some time with him and he really is such a sweet and gentle dog. He loves his walk time, is full of energy, and plays well with other dogs. Like every dog, he also enjoys his daily belly rubs and treats, whoever adopts this guy will need to have some sturdy feet.

Getting a new dog is a BIG responsibility, so make sure that if you are wanting to get a new dog for Christmas that it's a good fit for both you and the pup. The humane society has great room for you to "get to know each other" and make sure it's the right fit. If you think Hank might be that dog for you, fill out an adoption form online or call the Quincy Humane Society at 217-223-8786. I also recommend volunteering at the humane society, going through the process you don't release how much the organization needs help, even with just 20-minutes of folding laundry and playing, everything little bit counts.
