Man, I'd take him if I could. I'll send the link to my dad. Slim chance but it couldn't hurt. You wouldn't have to worry about giving us a big dog. My 8 year old sis is used to big dogs:


p.s- I was in the middle of making my bed.

thats ok, its better for wilber. i am still keeping my fingers crossed. why doesnt the shelter do an adoption day at petco??? have a table with info on the dogs/cats for adoption, have stuff to sell to make money for the shelter, and maybe have 2 dogs there who are actually for adoption. that would get more exposure for the shelter

i dont care how many people are interested in him, he should be out and aboout with a cute little adopt me coat./bandana on. if someone fills out an app on him still show him around. only for this reason as the people never came back. try to put a cute hat or something on him too. adoption days get ALOT of attention. we do them all the time. even if no one wants him, they will be interested in others. get a nice binder, and print color pictures of all the dogs/cats for adoption with a cute bio on each. put it open on the table. have lots of applications and pens next to it. get a big empty 5 gal water bottle and put pictures onthere too and a big sign saying DONATIONS. and the shelter name and addy and phone number. have shirts for sale, bandanas, dog toys, etc. you can go to www.petedge.com they have lots of stuff dirt cheap that you can mark up to make some money for the shelter.
do petco/ petsmart, any pet place that willl let you do an adoption day. dont just stick to middletown, go farther out too;

why isnt the shelter treating him for heartworm? and why didnt the shelter test him when he came into the shelter? the treatments means he has to be inactive for a couple of weeks, can this family handle this??

i will donate some money for wilber


Postby Maryellen » Sun Dec 19, 2004 8:09 pm

no problem. let me know what happens.


Postby Maryellen » Sun Dec 19, 2004 8:25 pm

make sure you print up everything they need to know about heartworm and the treatment it entails.. make sure it is explained to the family so that they know what they are in for. after they get the dog there is not much the shelter can do to enforce them getting him the treatment, or keeping him quiet

I am so happy to hear that!!!! Yay Wilbur :))

chea, before wilber goes with this family have them all come back again and have the kids all run around in front of wilber a little distance away and have them act all wild to see what wilber does to make doubly sure. sometimes dogs are great with kids that are not acting like kids, but you want to make sure he is ok with the wild movements and screaming and stuff
