Portland, OR – When people learned of Bill, a senior German shepherd who was sitting at the Multnomah County Animal Shelter in early July, they clamored to help find him a home.
Bill, a stray, had much against him.
Not only was he homeless, but he was blind – the combination of being blind and a senior dog greatly diminished Bill’s chances of adoption.
But the outpouring of love and support for Bill worked its magic.
This Sunday, Bill will be leaving the county shelter and heading to a small, privately funded shelter called Family Dogs New Life Shelter.
The shelter, which is built on the belief that all dogs deserve a second chance at a new life, made room for this senior shepherd.
Now, if the right, special family steps forward to adopt Bill, he will join a new family.
If no one offers to give him a home, he will remain in the loving care of the Family Dogs New Life Shelter through the remainder of his Golden years.
Regardless, Bill will be safe and loved for the rest of his life.
A special word of thanks to each and every person that took the time to share Bill’s story – your efforts paid off in the best way possible.
Please take a moment to share this happy update as well – so that every person who learned about Bill originally will be made aware of the great news of his rescue.
Thank you Family Dogs New Life Shelter for taking Bill in!
