By Thor’s Hammer: Today’s Pet of the Week!
Thor is a neutered 6 (almost 7) year-old Retriever/Labrador/Shepherd mix. He's housetrained and will assertively let you know when nature is calling. He's done well with cats, other dogs, and children aged 4-10 years. He was in a foster home for the holidays and his foster parents describe him as very gentle and loving!
He did have a destructive chewing problem at his previous household, but the foster house said that he did very well and didn't chew on anything, so it could've just been an environment issue. Thor is affectionate with an outgoing personality, and he LOVES butt scratches!!
Tri-County Humane Society wants you and your new family member to succeed, so they've teamed up with GoodPup to provide a customizable, affordable, and positive dog training program that you both can work on from home!

Thursdays through Saturdays from 2pm to 5pm, For Pets' Sake Thrift is open next to the animal shelter! Get gently used collars, pet beds, leashes, apparel, and accessories, with all profits staying to take care of the residents!
Book Buddies Reading Program
Pets love to be read to. If you have a kiddo (age 5-15 years preferred) in your household who would LOVE to read to a shelter resident, then the Book Buddies program is for you (them)! Pets don't care about mispronounced words, and it's beneficial for both the kiddo (who gets practice reading aloud) and the resident, as shelter life can be stressful.
Tri-County Humane Society is located at 735 8th Street Northeast in St Cloud. Call them at (320) 252-0896 for questions or to make a deposit for your new family member!
