Yappy #NationalDogDay! Read on for your Friday warm and fuzzy!

Remember this face from yesterday's post? Beautiful Bailey was a long, long way from home when she found herself at the Lenawee Humane Society. Their Executive Director mobilized staff and volunteers to see Bailey on her way home to Tacoma, and their dedicated team together with Pilots N Paws got her all the way to Tacoma Narrows Airport!

That's where we came in, tasked with transporting Bailey for the final leg of her journey. Through all the automobile and plane rides, Bailey soldiered on, and everything was made worth it once she was with her people again! Her tail and hindquarters were a blur of happiness, and it was incredibly moving to be a part of her homecoming.

Thanks to all who #helpedmakehappyhappen!

Ay Chihuahua! Featured Pet Nacho is not only a cutie patootie, but he’s also got a docile personality to match. The 12-year-old would like nothing more than to be carried about or offered a lap by a lifelong companion!

We have performed a dental on the Chihuahua, and have brought his fee down to $50. Now he just needs a laid back, loving home for the next leg of his journey! #509759
