Wet Nose Wednesday-7.10.19

July 8, 2019

Welcome to the 98.5 KTK Wet Nose Wednesday web page, where we show you adoptable pets from local shelters that will make a great addition to your family!

This week we’d like to introduce you to Gil.

Do you have a little extra room in your heart and on your couch? If so, Gil Blythe would love to occupy both of those spaces! Although being a “house dog” is still somewhat new to him, Gil has quickly learned to appreciate the comfort of a soft couch and a fluffy pillow while living in his foster home. Several months ago, Gil and a female doggie friend were found roaming the streets; underweight, dehydrated, and with sores covering the pads of theirfeet. While in our care, Gil was nursed back to health and fed well to help put on some much needed weight. Now, this handsome black and white lab/hound mix resides in a foster home with a couple other small dogs, with whom he gets along really well. His foster mom reports that he has good manners and does well with other friendly dogs. She
thinks he would be a great walking or running partner for someone who enjoys exercise and wants a friend to keep them accountable. Because his experiences with household living have been somewhat limited until recently, Gil can be a little timid when faced with unfamiliar objects or situations, so he would really benefit from an adopter who will be patient with him as he gains more confidence. But at just a little over a year old, he still has his whole life in front of him… he just needs someone special to show him how much he has to look forward to. If you would like to find out about Gil, please submit an application to learn more [CLICK HERE]. If you’d like to request more information, please email VOCAL [CLICK HERE] or call 352-289-0800.

VOCAL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has broken this mission down into 12 key steps to make Marion County a no-kill county. Some of these steps build upon one another, some can be worked in parallel, but all require contributions from people like you. Please consider a monetary donation, donation of needed items or becoming a volunteer.
