Adopt a Forever Pet

The Source wants to help reduce the overpopulation of unwanted pets in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Every week we will feature a dog or cat from the hardworking rescue organizations and hope someone will find their fur-ever friend on this site.(All animals have been vaccinated, neutered and are healthy.) 

Some of the animals have been abused, others were abandoned and some were abused and abandoned, like this week’s Nail.

Logan is a sweet boy who is ready to find his forever home. He is 4-years old and full of love. But, Logan is very timid and needs a home with lots of patience and time to realize that the world is a good place. He loves pats and scratches and is housebroken. His ideal family would have a fenced yard with another dog or two and older children – he is afraid of loud noise and sudden movements. Logan is a wonderful, handsome dog and will be a wonderful addition to his forever family.

Nail is an adorable, neutered, male mixed-breed pup. He is approximately 6-months old and weighs around 22 pounds. He was given his name after he was found with his litter mates in a taped-shut Home Depot box at the dump. Thankfully, all survived. Nail is currently in foster care with other dogs. He is housebroken and already knows a few basic commands. He is playful, adventurous and a total “ham” for the camera. Nail is negative for Heartworm and up to date on vaccines.
