Three “hunky” birthday boys were each treated to a special day out this month.  Hector, Tippy, and Tyson are three of our longest residents looking for a forever home. Volunteers sought to make each dog’s birthday at the shelter a special one.  Read below to see where their adventures took them.


Hector’s Big Day Out

Hector began his day by visiting The Print Shoppe with mother-daughter volunteers Melanie and Anika.

Next, he visited Harley Davidson.

It was announced over the loudspeaker as he came in, “Hector is here!”

What a handsome stud. Hector turned 8 years old this month. October also marks 2 years at the kennel for him.

Hector finished off his day with Bruster’s ice cream!
