Naperville chihuahua Lily adopted on Easter

Easter Brings a New Beginning for Naperville Senior Chihuahua Named Lily

What started off as a very sad and all too common situation turned out to be a happy Easter ending. Ms. Lily the Chihuahua was given up at 10 years of age when her family decided they no longer had time for her. Fortunately for this sweet little girl, the Naperville Area Humane Society took her, giving her new mom and dad the chance to fall in love with her.

Ms. Lily was named for the Easter holiday she was adopted on, and she is now ready for the next phase of her life enjoying endless loving care and (hooray!) daily visits from her adoring nannies at Out-U-Go!

Big hugs to you Lily, Janice, and Darryl…we are so happy for you all!

Tallahassee Dog Event: Dog Wash to Benefit the Pups at Leon County Humane Society

It’s that time of year again!! Spring is quickly disappearing, and it is warm enough for dog washing.

The Leon County Humane Society (LCHS) yearly dog washes are in full swing! All funds raised in this season’s washes are used to pay medical expenses for the adoptable companions of the LCHS.

Out-U-Go! pitched in the afternoon of May 10, 2014, to wash doggies in the shelter’s shaded backyard. We had a blast sudsing up a bunch of soggy doggies!

For more info and a full listing of 2014 dog wash dates, visit Leon County Humane Society.

Meet Ralphie, rescued from Tallahassee Last Hope Rescue

Meet OUG! Tallahassee Rescue Dog, Ralphie!

Meet Ralphie, a handsome devil and super sweet rescue dog from Last Hope Rescue in Tallahassee. Ralphie won the dog lottery and is now part of a wonderful, loving family!

He is one of our all-time favorites—sweet and laid back but loves a good romp with his water bottle butterfly toy! He also specializes in couch-snoozing and cuddling. Visiting Ralphie is truly a pleasure!

OUG! helps homeless pets like Ralphie every day by giving HUGs. HUGs, short for Home-U-Go!, is our way of supporting the humans of rescues and shelters finding forever homes for pups and kitties in need.
