“It's been a long time since I gave you an update on Bam's progress—he is doing amazing as you will see in his picture! He visits the vet and scores great in all around health and he continues to amaze me each and every day. He is now without a doubt my perfect companion.”
-Andrew Thompson

WHS Alumni Update: May 25, 2012

It’s a holiday weekend, so we’ll keep today’s post short and sweet. Catch up with two amazing WHS alumni!


Rocky went home yesterday! Rocky came to the Washington Humane Society emaciated with severe congenital skeletal deformations as well as calluses on both legs and a severely infected sore on one leg. He was being kept in a crate approximately half his size with no bedding for 15-20 hours a day. After a long recovery under the care of dedicated officers in our Humane Law Enforcement Department, he has happily found his forever family! Hooray for Rocky! (Check out all the love he received on our recent Facebook post!).
