Dog Seeking Home After 4 Years in Shelter

Hope this note finds you well.

We believe that Barley’s story is one that your viewers will want to hear: he’s been in a Stamford, Connecticut shelter for four very long years. He’s a great dog who has been overlooked consistently because he’s older or people think he’s “ordinary” looking (we disagree!).

FYI – Barley is Pets for Patriots eligible; his sponsoring shelter is one of our program partners and he’s a personal favorite of mine. This is a great dog who, if adopted by a member of our program in the Stamford area or anywhere we have a program where the shelter is willing to adopt him, would qualify for ongoing discounted veterinary care and other benefits.

Will you share his video and story?

How could we not?
