Meet CVHS's longest-term resident, Hemingway, who is affectionately known around the shelter as "Hemi."
Hemi has been in our care for a combined total of over 250 days. When he first came to the shelter in 2017, he was in heart-breaking condition. Hemi survived abuse and neglect, and he had the physical and emotional scars to prove it. He had been betrayed by the human he had trusted most: his owner.
Due to his traumatic experiences, Hemi exhibited some behavioral issues. He was understandably anxious and distrusting of humans. We knew finding him a home wouldn't be easy, but we were determined to find him a loving family. After just three months at CVHS, Hemi was adopted.
Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, Hemi's adoption didn't work out.
Hemi returned to the shelter in October. We're still looking for his forever home.
We know that a special guy like Hemi needs a special home. That's why we're launching #HappinessForHemi to find the right adopter for him.
Read more about Hemi in our latest blog post. Share his story and help us spread the word about this goofy, playful guy. Together we can find him the home of his dreams and finally get some #HappinessForHemi.
