Many an evening, just after 5:00, one of our volunteers shows up in athletic gear. He’s arrived to take his favorite shelter resident, Ridley, out for a run. For a young, high-energy hound who’s living in a kennel, this is heaven on Earth. Ridley was relinquished because he needs to lead a very active life, and that can be tough for a busy person to accommodate. Are you like Ridley—do you like to spend hours a day outdoors? Is loafing on the couch your idea of torture? Are you in need of an activity partner? We have the dog for you! And Ridley’s more than just a jock: he’s also an excellent student who’s been working on some tricks to show off. But more than anything in the world, Ridley would love to keep you company on those long hikes to the top of anywhere.

After 12 years in his previous home, this guy is heading out on the highway, looking for adventure and whatever comes his way. We can’t claim that he was born to be wild, however; Highway has more of a laid-back, take-things-as-they-come type of attitude. The only speedy thing about this guy is how quickly he’s able to make friends. An easy charmer, Highway is looking to take a new family in a love embrace. Could you use a kitty hug?
