Marshall (A17745209) is a super handsome bulldog mix who came to the shelter at ACCT as a stray. He is very healthy and a great size at 65 pounds. Marshall is a 5-10 year old boy who is already neutered and ready for his second chance. He is an easygoing older dog who loves to play by himself with toys as much as going for a walk with his humans.
Marshall is both curious about everything around him and super attentive to his people. He really loves new things and would be a great addition to any home that is sure to give him tons of exciting experiences. His eagerness will most likely translate to a dog who is ready to learn and adapt to please his new family. Marshall might even be housebroken, as his good condition seems to mean he was once in a home. And now he is more than ready to get back to that kind of safety and comfort where he can be a good boy and show a lucky adopter or foster his great capacity for love. You can call for more information or to check his status at 267.385.3800 or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ACCT is open 365 days a year to help great dogs like Marshall have the best opportunity to get a second chance. Adoption hours are 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Adoption details can be found on the ACCT website along with an adoption application. Email email@example.com for more information or clarification about adoption details. With the November adoption specials, it is only $30 to adopt this handsome fellow, including up to date shots and microchipping. Bring any kids or family pets to come meet him and ensure a perfect match.
If you can’t commit to a permanent pet, Marshall could be saved by a temporary reprieve in a foster home too. Foster hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 7 days a week. Need reasons to foster? Check out the ACCT foster page and fill out an application to foster Marshall at the same time, either online or in printable form. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Foster homes save lives and all medical is covered by ACCT. Many times, there is even free food and/or treats at the shelter for foster homes. In a shelter as full as ACCT, his life is constantly at risk and it is a scary place for an older dog like Marshall. So fostering will mean saving his life and that of the dog that takes his kennel. Foster homes get the support and assistance of the staff and volunteers for any questions and to help find their temporary pet a permanent new home.
If you can’t help directly by adopting or fostering Marshall in your home, please share his information with someone who might be able to save this special older guy.
