Winchester's Happy Tail


My boyfriend and I adopted Winchester from BARCS in April 2018. He was 11 years old and had been disowned twice prior to coming to BARCS. It was unclear why he was never able to find a forever home, but after seeing him want nothing but love and compassion from everyone he met we couldn't say no. It didn't take him long to adjust at all. Within the first week, he was snuggling onto our laps for some belly rubs and begging us not to stop. We call him our "old man pup" because he acts like a 10-month-old puppy. He loves going on walks, playing with other dogs ALL day long, snuggles and the occasional chicken nugs! Winchy gets to come to work with mommy and daddy a lot and has a big gang of friends at daycare! It kills me to think why two families would disown the sweetest dog in the world. He would never hurt a fly (we know because he runs around chasing them when they are in the house), but if they never did, then we would have never been graced with his presence in our lives.

This year, BARCS is dedicating Giving Tuesday donations to our Love Lasts Forever Program, which supports the care of homeless senior animals and sponsors their adoption fees in order to shorten their stay at the shelter and find them loving homes.

Last year, BARCS' Love Lasts Forever Program sent 700 senior pets to forever homes. The Nancy Sherertz Family Foundation has pledged to match all Giving Tuesday donations dollar-for-dollar up to $10K. It’s because of your friendship and financial support that we are able to create essential programs like Love Lasts Forever to give these senior animals hope. ​​
