Meet Cairo!!! 



6 months is far too long for any dog to live in a shelter… But sadly, that is Cairo’s story.

Through no fault of his own, Cairo came to HSWC in March of this year. After several months with no interested adopters, we hoped that a change of scenery and a new audience would do the trick, and we transferred him to another shelter. After several months and no luck there, we decided to try again and Cairo is now back at HSWC awaiting his forever home.

Cairo is a fun loving, 3 year old guy whose favorite activity in the world is playing with squeaky tennis balls! He’ll even carry them in his mouth from one adventure to the next. With a slender build of 40 pounds and powerful legs, Cairo can catch a lot of air when playing fetch! He would like to join you for a good hike, too, since he loves to take in all the scents of the world around him. Cairo is very excited to meet other dogs and have a fun romp together, but he doesn’t pay much mind to them when there are other fun activities to participate in.

Even if you cannot give Cairo his forever home, please consider fostering him to give him a much-needed break from the shelter environment. (If interested, please email [email protected]).

Cairo is truly a fantastic dog. He deserves a life beyond the kennel.
