Keeping Animals in Homes

In communities across the nation, we see recurring issues that prevent willing pet adopters from adopting pets or keeping their adopted animals in their homes. Here are some of the most common reasons that family-pets end up in the shelter system:

- Economic Issues

- Behavioral Issues

- Housing Concerns

We have many opportunities available for volunteers, whether it involves contact with the dogs, doing office work, volunteering at events or data entry from your home.  

Dogs who may otherwise be destroyed at an overcrowded shelter are temporarily placed with you, their foster family, until a forever family is found.

Heartworm Disease

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States transmitted by the bite of a single mosquito.  Click on the photo to learn more about this disease and how to protect your pet.

Marni is a seven year old female Pomeranian and weighs 6.3 pounds. Marni started out a tough life as a stray, but fortunately she arrived at Wish Bone and is excited to find her forever family. Because Marni is tiny, fragile, and skittish, she would do best in a home with no kids under 12 years old.
