Badger is a sweet old man looking for a comfy place to lay his big ol’ head. Even though he’s slowing down, he still likes to explore and do his own thing. He would love a home with gentle people who give him independence. And he’d prefer a home with no stairs. He has plenty of love and good times to share. He’s in foster care so please arrange to visit him soon at the Animal Protection Society of Durham!
To set up a virtual visit or to adopt, send adoption forms to [email protected]. To view Badger’s webpage, visit apsofdurham.org/dogs/badger. Same-day adoptions are now available in the shelter.
Adoption fees for dogs and puppies typically range from $100-$175. This includes a basic medical exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check, a heartworm test and deworming.
