It’s unclear how or why Tonik the eerily humanoid poodle/Shih Tzu mix ended up in a kill shelter in Kentucky, but the good news is that he is no longer there.
Even better, the two-year-old person-faced pup has been vetted, groomed, and ready for immediate adoption from the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group rescue in Mishawaka, Indiana.
The only catch is that interested parties will need to visit the rescue in order to pick him up, as the group has an understandable policy against shipping or transporting their canines.
That being said, it’s hardly a catch considering you’re already filling out an application, aren’t you? …
Reader comment: “… Do you know the difference between a “no kill” shelter and a “kill” shelter? “No kill” shelters turn away animals when they get too full. They also often turn away animals that are unlikely to be adopted fast, like old or sick animals. And do you know where those animals get sent? To a “kill” shelter. “No kill” actually means “we don’t get our hands dirty, we let someone else do it.”…”
