The SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center is hosting an adoption promotion titled “Go Big and Go Home!” where potential adopters can name their own adoption fee for dogs over 50lbs. This year, the formerly single-day event will span nearly an entire week, taking place from April 12th through April 18th.
Large dogs can face unique obstacles in finding forever homes, such as common misconceptions about their behavior, temperament, and energy level. SICSA staff members see these myths disproven every day as they work with the large dogs. Logan, a 78 pound dog currently in SICSA’s care, disproves the myth that large dogs do not interact well with small children. Other SICSA dogs like 88 pound King Kong show off the snuggly side of larger dogs, while 60 pound Mona exemplifies their playful, puppy energy. These dogs are just a few of many that act as a reminder that each dog is a unique individual, with their own adorable personality.
“Our larger dogs can sometimes be overlooked”, said Nicole Carey, SICSA’s Adoption Program Manager. “We hope this event will remind potential adopters how incredible our gentle giants are. We know anyone who takes them home will see that a big dog comes with a big heart filled with nothing but love for their people.”
All adoptable animals at SICSA are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on their vaccinations.
