The Potter League had a busy weekend, adopting out eight dogs, two cats and two other small mammals and reptiles, but despite those adoptions, there are still a whopping 30 dogs, 82 cats and 10 other small animals in its care.
One dog that is ready for a new home is Jack, a 10-year-old Beagle who had one owner since he was 4-months-old, but recently was surrendered by his owner due to an issue with the landlord. According to Amy Chamard who is in charge of Special Projects at the Potter League, Jack needs a quieter home with adults or teens only. "He has a special blanket that he is very protective of so smaller children that might take it away from him would not be good," she says.
Despite Jack's age, he still has a lot of energy and loves the outdoors where there is plenty for him to sniff, but he also is a gentle dog. Chamard says that while he is energetic, he should settle into a new home well and would be pretty mellow once he gets situated.
A lot of dogs at the Potter League are sharing rooms these days because there are so many of them. Be sure to check out some of the other dogs that are available as well as the cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and more that the Potter League currently has available for adoption in the attached video.
