Knox has the energy to keep those New Year's resolutions on trackPope Memorial Humane Society
Did you make some New Year resolutions that you are finding hard to keep? Maybe we can help. Was your resolution to be more active, lose weight or enjoy the great outdoors more? Knox, our 2-year-old American Bull dog/Lab mix will gladly help keep you on track. He's got plenty of energy to get you out the door and walking around the block or off to the park for a game of fetch. Once you're done, he'll be happy to join you in the rewards of a good nap on the couch. Maybe your resolution was to put the stresses of the job behind you and enjoy relaxing at home. Cowboy, a 9-year-old sweet orange tabby would love to be your sidekick on the La-Z-boy watching Season Four of "Downton Abbey." He has perfected the art of relaxation and science has confirmed that his mere presence will help lower your blood pressure. Did you resolve to make a difference? Adopt any one of the 100-plus animals at the shelter and you will certainly make a world of difference to them. Can't adopt? Consider being a foster family or volunteer at the shelter. We have a whole range of volunteer activities that are vital to our success in saving lives and creating families each and every day.
