Way back in March we told you about Frick, a 12 year old Irish Wolfhound who was rescued from a precarious situation in Squirrel Hill. This guy was emaciated, had ear and skin conditions, and was really depressed in the shelter. While searching for a foster home for this poor guy, a woman came to visit him. She didn’t want to foster him - she wanted to adopt! Well, after the months went by, she stopped back at our shelter recently to show us his progress. As you can see from his picture, he’s doing wonderfully well in his home sweet home!
Frick, a 12 year old Irish Wolfhound, found his new home yesterday afternoon after a several-week stay at the ARL shelter. Rescued from a precarious situation in Squirrel Hill, Frick was in pretty bad shape upon his arrival. He was emaciated and had moderately severe ear and skin conditions, but he had such a sweet disposition. This old guy was so depressed in the shelter and we knew a foster home was his best chance to receive proper care. As we were searching for potential fosters, Frick’s story quickly spread online. Then it happened. A woman came to meet Frick, but she wasn’t interested in fostering - she wanted to adopt him! He left with a smile on his face and is reportedly doing very well in his new home sweet home. We couldn’t be happier for him!
While we don’t want to overshadow Frick’s success, his story was unfortunately circulated with a lot of misinformation. Rest assured that every animal that enters our facility receives the best care that we can provide and we never impose a time limit on an animal’s stay with us. Additionally, we have a great relationship with many area rescue groups and always welcome collaboration with others who wish to help us save more lives. Contact our Adoption Department at 412-345-7300 x215 for more information.
