Hamilton County, IN – An Indiana animal shelter has launched a special campaign to help one of its long-term residents find a home. The dog, named Waylon, has been waiting more than 500 days for someone to take notice of him.
In an effort to lend Waylon a hand, the Humane Society for Hamilton County has launched the “Where’s Waylon” campaign. The animal welfare agency said:
In a shelter full of adoptable dogs, somehow each day Waylon continues to be passed by. We challenge you to “find” Waylon as he travels around Central Indiana in hopes of running across his perfect family.
Describing how “Where’s Waylon” works:
Visit his personalized website (Hamiltonhumane.com/whereswaylon) to find a map of where he’s been, more information about the home he’s looking for and to hear first-hand from staff and volunteers! If you “find” him out in the community, make sure to snap a selfie and #whereswaylon to be featured! We know his perfect home is out there, and we need your help to find them.
Waylon’s adoption profile says:
Howdy partner, I’m Waylon! You’re probably wondering how I ended up here. Well, it’s because I act like an animal. I walk around barefoot, rarely wear pants, chew with my mouth open, and sniff random cats. I make human friends easily and get along with dogs my size or larger. I’m also a wicked line dancer and great fun at weddings! I’m smart (SAT score = 1250) and strong (bench press = 130 pounds) so consistency and training are the keys to my ongoing success. I’ve been described by the HSHC staff as very happy, friendly, social, curious, and playful.
