A letter from Bacchus: I am somewhat confused as to why I am here in the shelter. I vaguely remember this place from my distant past, but am not sure. I think I was here when I was a baby, but I mostly remember being in my home, with my family, so I didn't really dwell on the before. Suddenly I found myself back here, but I would really prefer to be back in a home. I've made an effort to inform people of this fact, but apparently my meows have not been clear enough. Will you please assist me?
Fun, sweet, and playful aptly describe me. I am fairly independent, but I'll come over to you when it's time to snuggle. I'll let you know by rolling over on my back and purring loudly. Sometimes I'll even come to you when you call me. My favorite thing ever is a feather toy. I would be a grand addition to any household. I may even make friends with another dog or cat, given a proper introduction.
I need some assistance regarding the next transition in my life. I truly hope it will be my last, as I am looking for a permanent home and family. If you are willing to assist me in this goal, I guarantee that you will not come to regret it.
Those who meet Meaty will discover he's basically a big cuddly pillow, and while he might be a little shy at first, this guy definitely warms up after a couple minutes. He is also one of our most knowledgeable aficionados on rump scratches. Meaty gets along great with other dogs and might even be able to live in a home with dog-savvy cats if properly introduced. He is 3 years old and weighs 71 pounds.
