Just recently, we learned the story of a basset hound in Michigan named Whiskey Joe. He has had a rough life, rougher than any animal should ever have to go through. His previous owner was abusive and denied Whiskey Joe food and water. He even had to have an eye removed thanks to his owner’s cruelty. Whiskey Joe ran away from home and was put into a shelter where he faced being put down. Fortunately for Whiskey Joe a kind volunteer saw to it that he didn’t have to go back to his owner and that he was able to get the help he needed through Almost Home.

Whiskey Joe has been through a lot, and thanks to the kindness of others has gotten the chance for a new life, but he still needs that special someone to give him a place he can call home. Despite the cruelty inflicted on him by his former owner, Whiskey Joe still has so much love to give. If you think you could be that person to give a dog in need their second chance, please contact Almost Home at almosthome1965@aol.com. You can also fill out an application online.
