VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - He's the face of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Humane Society but is in need of a good home.
Meet Hawg, the pit bull mix who is the official mascot and spokes dog for the humane society.
But with area shelters in desperate needs of foster homes for cats and dogs, poor Hawg is homeless.
The humane society is now looking to find him a good family and a great home.
"We are looking for a permanent foster home which means they get to keep him permanently but well cover all the expenses. He'll still be the humane societies dog but whomever gets him they'll be able to have a dog, have the fun of having a dog but no financial commitment," says Mechelle Sullivan.
The foster family must live in Lowndes County and have no plans of moving.
They also must be willing to drive Hawg to any events and educational classes he has booked.
If you are interested in becoming a permanent foster home for Hawg, please pick up an application from the Humane Society office at 307 E. Jane St., Valdosta, Ga. 31602, or to have an application mailed, emailed or faxed, please call the Humane Society office at 229-247-3266. Below is a list of requirements.
