When Vicki and Viola showed up at the Redmond Humane Society several weeks ago as strays, the shelter staff vowed to put in a lot of special effort on getting them adopted.  The dogs are  yellow labs…a mother-daughter pair…and the mother is blind.  The daughter never leaves the mother’s side and serves as her guide.

 

It is an interesting story…but sadly…adopting them out could be a problem.

 

Reese Mercer is on the board of directors at the shelter and spends time with the animals.  She is optimistic and believes that there is always a family that turns out to be the right fit for pets if the staff just looks hard enough.  Mercer explains, “…“we feel that they need to be in a home that appreciates a quieter energy level of the mother and then also the more energetic and enthusiastic energy level of the daughter of Viola…and Viola really looks out for Vicki so we want them to be together in a home…a special home where this bond is appreciated.”

 

You can see their pictures on the Redmond Humane Society webpage at www.redmondhumane.org.  Even if you can’t adopt them, you can donate money for their upkeep.
