***SAFE 09/02/2016***Benny is an older boy, 14 years to be exact. His former owner turned him in for the excuse of allergies. How do you turn in a terrific pet that you’ve had forever and claim that lame excuse? This boy is described as shy but once he warms up to you, he can be your best friend. His intake picture gives you a clue of you comfortable he can make himself once he feels confident. He was very cooperative during intake and allowed the exam without putting up a fuss. Please consider this older boy who can be your next buddy by applying to adopt or foster him tonight!
