Bosco the dog came calling today.

Bosco visited with Andy Rent as he talked about him on his Andy in the Morning show for Wet Nose Wednesday.

Trudy, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought Bosco into the studios.

Bosco is a 1-year old hound mix and needs a great home.  He came to the Humane Society from Tennessee, and has just been with them about three weeks.

Bosco has been treated for heartworm, so his new human bestie will need to purchase 6 months of heartworm preventative and HSWM will match 6 months.

According to the American Kennel Club, hound mixes make excellent hunting dogs and loyal companions, they are also happy-go-lucky, funny, and—thanks to their pleading expression—cute.

Hounds love to follow their noses, which can sometimes get them into sticky situations. These dogs are solid, sturdy, and fairly easy to care for, but they do need to run around and let off steam.

Trudy also said our hearts go out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey – humans and animals alike. Our hope, she said, is that owned animals are reunited with their families so healing can begin.

She stressed that the Humane Society of West Michigan (HSWM) continues to ready their facility, and grow financial and other resources to help animals affected by this tragedy.  They also remain a rescue destination with their transport partner ASPCA and other Southern shelters.   At the same time, HSWM remains committed to continue care of  local animals in need, as well as those in neighboring counties.

In order to support the relocation effort, they have set up the ANIMAL RELOCATION FUND. By giving to this lifesaving rescue program, your dollars will go into a fund designated for transport related needs.
