** Mr. Pibb was adopted at long last!**
Today marks the two-year anniversary of Hard Luck Hounds, a group we’ve been privileged to work with since they started. HLH helps the longest-stay, hardest-to-place pups at Austin Animal Center find families – Dogs like Mr. Pibb who has been at the shelter for 290 days today.
Austin’s no-kill status means that 90 percent of the animals that come into the shelter make it out alive. HLH aims to save the last ten percent of dogs deemed by some as ‘unadoptable’. By finding these dogs affordable medical care and taking them to training classes such as those provided by Dogs Out Loud, HLH is slowly bridging the gap to a 100 percent save rate.
