Moose and Cally need homes and I’m hoping our readers can help.
I first met Moose and Cally (short for Calabash) back in December when I stopped by the St. John Animal Care Center (ACC) to take the dogs for a walk. I was immediately taken by these two pups after learning that they have spent two years living at the ACC. The folks at the ACC do a phenomenal job caring for and loving the animals that pass through their doors each year, but every dog deserves a forever home. So that’s my goal with today’s post. Let’s get these dogs adopted.
Here are the details provided by Ryan Moore, ACC Shelter Manager:
Moose is a Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix. He’s a great dog, but a bit particular in his needs. He hates cats and is not good with other male dogs. He has had plenty of female playmates, so he does have the potential to be in a multiple dog home. Moose would really do well living on a farm or a similar type of environment. He has tons of energy and loves to chase things. On the island, it’s most chickens, iguanas and cats. Moose has been at the shelter for more than two years and sometimes the kennel environment can be stressful on the animals. All Moose needs is someone with patience and he will do very well. He’s never had that type of home, as most of his days have been spent in a kennel. Are you Moose’s forever family?
Cally is the other dog near and dear to my heart. She is a two-year-old Boxer Mix. Cally was rescued from dog fighting and was found underneath a car in Coral Bay. She was starving at the time and badly cut up. Cally is very good with people but skittish around other dogs because of her past. She is one of the most outgoing dogs at the ACC and is a volunteer favorite. She would make a wonderful pet as she is easy to walk, good in the car and rarely goes to the bathroom in her kennel; therefore Cally would be easy to house train. Think you could be Cally’s forever home?
If you think that Moose or Cally wold make a great addition to your home, and you think you have what it takes to give them the care and love that they need, please contact Ryan at the ACC. The number is (340) 774-1625. The shelter hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
