PostHeaderIcon Duke

Duke is a handsome seven-year-old pointer mix currently at the Greater Hillsdale Humane Society, and he needs help.

This poor guy came to my attention several months ago, and his Petfinder status hasn't changed. Until his arrival at the shelter, he spent his entire life outside. His friend Molly, a pretty seven-year-old lab mix, lived outside with him.

Duke never received much care. He got to eat, and he was neutered, but he wasn't on any kind of heartworm preventative. Because of this, he now has heartworm disease. This could have been prevented, but since it wasn't, Duke needs painful, expensive treatment. Fortunately, Molly does not have heartworm disease.

Duke is looking for sponsors for his heartworm treatment. He's also looking for a forever home so he can live inside--where he can spend his time with people and not have to endure those bitter Michigan winters out in the cold. He would love to have Molly join him and be part of his forever family, but that's not a deal breaker.

In the meantime, Duke would enjoy having visitors stop by the Greater Hillsdale Humane Society shelter and take him for a walk or do some training with him to help him become more adoptable. The shelter is in Osseo, which is near the junction of M-34 and M-99 in southern Michigan.

Duke is a sweet boy who doesn't deserve all this pain and heartache. Won't someone help him?

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

Anonymous, thank you so much for your kind words. I really hope this blog helps save animals in need--both in my state, by giving them much-needed publicity, and in other areas, by inspiring readers to adopt or even start similar blogs.
