Can You Help Sweet Shortcake Find a Home?
Canine Lifeline helps find homes for dogs without them.
About a month ago, we asked readers where they go when they’re looking to adopt a pet. A few readers suggested Canine Lifeline, so that’s where we turned!
Barb Wible houses most of the dogs in need for Canine Lifeline—the all-volunteer organization doesn’t have a physical location, so the dogs relay on foster homes until they’re adopted.
Most Saturdays, Canine Lifeline sets up shop from 12 until 3 p.m. at the Petco in nearby Macedonia. Wible said there are usually 50 to 60 dogs in the program at any given time.
Canine Lifeline focuses on getting a good match between families and dogs, so there’s a two-week trial period for all adoptions, Wible said. Adoptions are $150 for dogs between 6 months and 7 years, and $100 for dogs older than 7. If anyone’s interested in Shortcake, fill out an adoption form on the Canine Lifeline website and bring it to Petco on Saturday.
