Critter Chronicles: Howie (prison graduate)


Howie came to the shelter with his buddy Chance as a humane case. Chance was totally blind and Howie was his world. He helped Chance get around and comforted him. They came in filthy and neglected. Chance was transferred to another rescue that specializes in special needs dogs. Howie went to the Grafton Correctional Institute for training in obedience, manners and basic commands. Howie is now a prison grad, back and ready for a loving home that he hasn’t had for a long time. He’s a sweet 3 year old that you will instantly fall in love with. Howie’s been a caregiver half of his life. Now he would love to be taken care of. Adopt this boy with a heart of gold.If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog, please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Visit anytime during regular business hours.
