It is with great please that we introduce you to, Huey!

Hi! My name is Huey! I am sure glad VOCAL came to my rescue! I had been taken care of for a while, but sadly my people left me at a truck stop one night. I waited and waited but they didn’t come back for me. Luckily, VOCAL came and picked me up and now I’m waiting for my forever home. In the meantime, I am in a foster home with lots of other dogs. I get along great with all of them – young and old, large and small. I am learning more about house manners and making straight “As” in potty training – as long as I can get outside when I need to. I’m getting better at this stuff! I also sleep quietly in a crate at night. I’m crazy about food so my foster mom is making me sit quietly in my crate before she will give me my breakfast and dinner; it’s so HARD because I am SO EXCITED!!! Sigh. I do well with “sit” and I’m learning “lie down.” I really want to please my humans and I am working hard to hear those words, “Good dog Huey!”  One other thing you might like to know about me….I am also a bit crazy about chasing squirrels. They run around up in those trees and I get really focused. I would jump up that tree if I could and sometimes I try. I am a pretty energetic boy but after a while of squirrel chasing and playing with the other dogs, I am happy to get cuddled and petted by my foster mom. I also enjoy snuggling down for a nap. My foster mom says I am really soft and that my brown eyes are full of love. So, life is getting better since that truck stop. All I need to do now is find a forever family I can call my own. If Huey sounds like the pet for you, please submit an application to learn more [CLICK HERE].

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.

VOCAL will be at Petsmart on SW College Road/SR 200, this Saturday (5/20/2017) from 10am to 4pm with lots of kittens and dogs/puppies.
