Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Waldo, a 3-year-old terrier mix who wants a person to call his own.
When he was plucked from a crowded animal shelter in Solano County, California, by the California Animal Rescue, he was tremendously fearful and cowered in his cage. "In the shelters they are usually so afraid that the shelter managers deem them unadoptable," says the rescue's founder, Vicki Benson. But as it turns out, Waldo just needed a change of scenery.
"They are always afraid at first," says Benson. "But Waldo came around and now he's very devoted."

The 3-year-old Great Dane was miserable and retching when his owners rushed him to a northwest Portland emergency animal hospital.
It was something he ate!
X-rays showed a stomach full of "a large quantity of foreign material." Nearly two hours of surgery later, Dr. Ashley Magee had the answer – the dog had consumed 44 socks. Luckily, Dr. Magee managed to remove 43½ of the offenders.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Hazel, a 3-year-old hound mix who has made a massive transformation over the past few months.
When the pup arrived at The Simon Foundation in Bloomfield, Connecticut, she was emaciated, hairless and too weak to stand – obviously a victim of neglect. She was covered with flea dirt, had pressure sores all over her body from laying on a hard surface, and the pads of her feet were raw.
