BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (CBS42 Community) – Hand in Paw, Birmingham’s Animal-Assisted Therapy Organization, is teaming up with The Greater Birmingham Humane Society to help us find Kinzie, Linzie, and Jerry loving forever homes. All of these dogs have been flagged as strong therapy animal candidates. With the proper training and love, maybe you can help them become certified!
Remember, if these animals are not ideal for you, you might know someone who is looking for a pet that we feature. Please share this segment with fellow animals lovers.
Kinzie and Linzie: These sisters make the perfect pair! They were both found as strays.
Both girls are sporty hound mixes that come in a compact size weighing in at only 30lbs. Linzie looks like a miniature Vizsla with lovely copper hair. Kinzie has a delightful brindle coat. The sisters are very calm and docile. They are a little timid in the shelter environment, but once they find a forever home they will surly warm up with their new family.
Jerry: This 8-month-old is a 41lb male. He is a loyal shepherd mix. Throughout our taping, he enjoyed having his belly rubbed and was completely relaxed. He loves to cuddle and is very affectionate. Jerry came to the shelter as a stay. Let’s help this sweet boy find a family!
Hand in Paw believes in the human/animal bond and hopes that this partnership facilitates a relationship between viewers at home, and animals in need at the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.
