Help us make his Birthday wish come true!
Howard came to Home At Last one year ago. He has been a wonderful mascot at the shelter, and tried several foster homes and a few adoptions over the year…each one with the same result. Parents in tears, in love with a dog that has nothing but love to give, hating to have to bring him back because he simply cannot be left alone. Howard suffers from severe anxiety, and needs a human companion to be home or with him always. He would be great for a retired family, nursing home or constant care companion, he would love a large family because Howard loves people.
Howard is a greyhound mix, just a handsome boy. He gets along great with all dogs, big and small. He has a gentle demeanor and plays submissively. He is about to turn two and really wants to find a place to call his own. Home At Last wants to help Howard find the forever home he so deserves!
What Are Therapy Dogs?
Dogs offer themselves to us with joy, unconditional love, great affection, and companionship. They can have a profound ability to touch our lives not engaged by other kinds of interactive therapies. Perhaps this is because they offer themselves in a non-threatening, wordless way that speaks love and attention. Indeed, there is no greater therapy than the love of a dog.
Animals have long been recognized as being a positive force in the healing process for injury and illness. Dogs have a calming and therapeutic effect for most humans in a variety of situations. Dogs can help with the emotional issues related to injury or illness by offering physical contact with another living creature. Therapy dogs have been used to ease sick children, soldiers and elderly. The love of an animal companion can help ease the mild stress of daily problems, assist with boredom, loneliness, and lack of control with some illness or injury. If you are interested in a possible therapeutic animal companion please contact Home At Last Humane Society.
