Want to make the world a better place for one dog? Give Jordy, a wonderful little APS-FH Chihuahua mix a foster or forever home. Through no fault of his own, Jordy has been at the shelter for too long and is still looking to be in a ‘home’ home where he can get and give the love and attention shelter hours can’t allow.

Jordy came to our shelter from a partner shelter in Bellingham several months ago and has had a hard time finding his forever home because he tends to be shy. He was abused at an early age by a man and struggles to not be fearful of other men and new people. However, after proper introductions are made, he’s very sweet and playful.

He’d love to find a quiet home with someone who understands fearful dogs and can be patient with him while he learns to trust again. Living at the animal shelter is proving to be too stressful for Jordy, and we’d love to help him feel safe and loved again.

If you have room in your heart and home for this sweet, 9-year-old Chihuahua mix, he’ll repay your kindness a thousand times!

Contact the Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor at 360- 378-2158 for more information on Jordy, or if you can help.

“Fosters are a critical part of animal rescuing, helping APS-FH to help animals in need. When you foster, you allow animals to shine; you teach them they’re loved; even though they may not be in their forever home, they learn they are safe and cared for. Fostering is an impactful way to help save lives, where each goodbye is a road to their happy ending. Foster families are true heroes in our animal community,” said Bethany Anderson, shelter executive director.

The goal of APS-FH is to build a community of compassion through adoption of homeless pets, humane education, abuse investigation and community outreach and leadership. The mission at APS-FH is to reduce pet overpopulation, to adopt unwanted homeless pets to quality homes, to protect animals from neglect, abuse and abandonment, to advocate for the welfare of animals through education and assistance and to promote greater appreciation of human and animal interactions.
