Meet Vivian ... this is now a very sad situation. Our usual pattern when we report to SCAC is to walk the kennels and determine which dogs are new residents and need a photograph to be posted to the SCAC site. As we walked the kennels last week before photographing the dogs we, once again, passed by Vivian but this time her body language was entirely different. She not only did not get up to see us but she had turned her large body away from the front of her cage and kept her back to us with her head down. Curled in the tiniest knot, this girl appeared to be depressed and trying to deal with the environment. Because she has been at the shelter so long, and because larger dogs wait an extra length of time to get adopted, Vivian is growing despondent and really longs for a home and a life in the outside world. Don’t delay … give Vivian her life back today!

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to "kindly" work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

My name is Sargent and I am a good-looking boy.  I am tall, lean and an energy machine.  I envision a life with a runner, hiker or a very active family and containment will be important to keep me safe until I mature.  Hey … you may as well know it upfront … I am excited about life and I need a few manners.  With your help I will learn quickly and become the dog that I was born to be.  Please remember when coming to meet me at the shelter that I will show best once taken to a private room.  In fact, many of my friends down here do too.  After all, these smaller kennels don’t allow for a good evaluation of the deserving dogs that we are.  Don’t delay … please take me home today.  I am anxious to begin my life with you – and your friends and family too!  You can see me at 250 Opportunity Parkway, Akron, OH  44308 or Contact Georjette Thomas at Pay It Forward For Pets at 330.760.0763 for information.  Visit  www.payitforwardforpets.org.
