PEANUT – Peanut was given to us when his previous owner did not have the means to care for him any longer. He had sores and a mouth condition that needed immediate attention.
He was extremely stressed out in the shelter and continuously harmed himself in his kennel. We knew that he would need to find a foster home while we continued medical treatment so that he could be safe and comfortable.
Kristen, who was a volunteer at the time, has a soft spot for older pups. As soon as she met Peanut she knew she could make a place for him at home. She had just lost her dog and best friend.
“I truly believe my first rescue dog, Petey, brough Peanut into my life. Petey passed on Dec. 25, 2019 and two days later I was at the shelter volunteering and saw Peanut being surrendered and learned two days after that he was harming his face in the kennel and was asked to be his foster. Petey knew I needed somebody to fill the void of losing my best friend and he brought me Peanut.” – Kristen, Peanut’s dog mom.
Peanut came home with her and they fell in love with him. A few weeks later they were back in to make him their own. Now he is always going on outings with them and making special appearances to support his rescue friends.
“Peanut is the most amazing, calm, happy, fun dog and each time he snuggles me, I am reminded of just how important it is to rescue dogs and give them the second chance and life they deserve. Peanut loves to snuggle, sit in the sun, have his head out the window and play with his rescue brothers and sisters. I’m so fortunate NHS brought him into my life and for the work NHS does for all the homeless pets in our community.” – Kristen, Peanut’s dog mom.
