This Labrador retriever needs some Gator aid

BOCA RATON — Seminole fans need not apply!

Just kidding…I’m Gator, a year and a half-old Labrador retriever, a neutered male weighing about 65 pounds.

I’m ready for any loving home that can offer me the life I deserve.  I’m an active, handsome, glossy boy who’ll be so much happier out of this cage….the bustle of the shelter makes me a little nervous and I just want to settle.

Did you know that, statistically, black dogs wait longer for adoption?  Aw, come on!  I’m housebroken and friendly, but I do need a home without children.  I like long walks and play time.

I’m available for adoption at Tri-County Humane Society, a no-kill animal shelter located at 21287 Boca Rio Road in Boca Raton. The shelter is open for adoptions Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Adoption fees for companion animals are $110 and up. Animals are heartworm-tested and up-to-date on vaccinations.  Included in the adoption fee is one year of free office visits to Regency Veterinary Clinic.

Please visit us to find a lost pet or to consider adding a shelter dog or cat to your family.  We have puppies and kittens, too!  Call (561) 482-8110 or view many of our available animals and volunteer opportunities at:  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter at ‘TriCounty Humane’.
