Speeding Up an Adoption
The volunteers were sad to see another big, intact male bully-breed mix come in to the Friendswood, Texas, shelter once again. But within minutes of meeting him and naming him Boscoe, we realized he was just a big, friendly, affectionate marshmallow. He was overlooked numerous times when people came to adopt, but after several weeks, a foster family took him home for a break from the kennel and committed themselves to finding him the right forever home. A flier was made and distributed that equated Boscoe to a delicious candy bar that happens to share his name. He went to many adoption events and activities and was featured on a local radio personality’s show.
Boscoe received some interested inquiries, but all of them had some issue—either they failed to follow through, or it didn’t work out for some other reason.
