I’ve been volunteering at the New Hampshire SPCA since the summer. That means I walk dogs in the morning when I can. The dogs are always happy to see me but considering they’ve been in a small kennel overnight and I’m the guy taking them out of it, of course they’re happy to see me.
NHSPCA handles local strays and surrenders but also receives a lot of transferred homeless dogs from parts of the country where there’s just a bunch of dogs needing homes. The two I see the most are transports from Shelby, Alabama and Bloomington, Indiana, but I know we receive from Ritchie County, West Virginia and soon from North Carolina.
Sometimes the dogs have a hard time getting adopted. This is especially true of some of the pit bulls or other scary looking dogs. And my big idea is this: when you see a seven second Vine of a scary pit bull wagging his tail like a goof, he’s not so scary anymore and wouldn’t that be a good way to promote the dogs to the public? So what the hell, I just take a Vine of the guys I walk and post them here for fun. I don’t keep this current and if you’re interested in the available dogs (or cats) (or small animals like rabbits or guinea pigs or ring-neck doves) (or horses and currently goats) then you want to check NHSPCA’s links on their:

And here’s the doggies!
Asterisk indicates a “Kanick Favorite.” Meaning at one point, he was my favorite dog out of all the dogs in the shelter at the time. Last updated: August 22, 2015 at 15:00 pm
