Shelter Launches ‘Where’s Waylon’ Campaign To Help Dog, Homeless For More Than 500 Days, Get Adopted

Published: November 08, 2022 at 02:26 PM Author: Penny Eims



Hamilton County, IN – An Indiana animal shelter has launched a special campaign to help one of its long-term residents find a home. The dog, named Waylon, has been waiting more than 500 days for someone to take notice of him.

In an effort to lend Waylon a hand, the Humane Society for Hamilton County has launched the “Where’s Waylon” campaign. The animal welfare agency said:

In a shelter full of adoptable dogs, somehow each day Waylon continues to be passed by. We challenge you to “find” Waylon as he travels around Central Indiana in hopes of running across his perfect family.

Describing how “Where’s Waylon” works:

Visit his personalized website (Hamiltonhumane.com/whereswaylon) to find a map of where he’s been, more information about the home he’s looking for and to hear first-hand from staff and volunteers! If you “find” him out in the community, make sure to snap a selfie and #whereswaylon to be featured! We know his perfect home is out there, and we need your help to find them.

Waylon’s adoption profile says:

Howdy partner, I’m Waylon! You’re probably wondering how I ended up here. Well, it’s because I act like an animal. I walk around barefoot, rarely wear pants, chew with my mouth open, and sniff random cats. I make human friends easily and get along with dogs my size or larger. I’m also a wicked line dancer and great fun at weddings! I’m smart (SAT score = 1250) and strong (bench press = 130 pounds) so consistency and training are the keys to my ongoing success. I’ve been described by the HSHC staff as very happy, friendly, social, curious, and playful.

Shared with hopes that Waylon gets his forever home especially before the holidays. He will make someone/some family a great companion.

There are some really bad so called shelters that treat animals like disposable objects and then there is this one and others like it that go above and beyond to help their animals find homes. Bravo and I hope Waylon finds his home really soon.

I wish the “shelters” would break free of their ties to Big Pharma. I would love to have another dog, but as long as the impounds (which is what they really are) keep filling the dogs (and cats) full of poison vaccines (which do not prevent disease, but do cause cancer, autoimmune diseases, allergies, etc.) I cannot take one from there. I’ve already spent thousands of dollars trying to correct vaccine injury (ultimately losing the fight).

That is a total lie, if it weren’t for Vaccines for feline and canine diseases, millions would die. Look at all the air borne viruses that wipe out cats, like feline aids, Rhinotracitious . We all know how bad Parvo, Distemper and Leptospirosis is in dogs. All of these can absolutely be prevented with yearly vaccinations ! Of course Rabies is a must to have !

why is rabies a must have considering the only way for my dog to get it is to come in contact with another infected animal and for many dogs that will never happen. your a vet tech so you should know the ingredients in a rabies shot and if you don’t i suggest you research it. vacinosis is a known and proven condition but like suki said people who come out of vet schools are indoctrinated by guess who, big pharma who contribute millions to veterinary colleges. do you think for one minute they wouldn’t promote their product poisons and all. it’s all about the billions of dollars the pet industry generates every year. i am not saying some medications are not needed to get a sick dog healthy but vaccines are another story. my dog goes for titers every year and she is 100% immune from her first round of shots as a pup and she was a parvo survivor which my vet said gives her the best resistance possible for parvo, so there are other options you just have to be open minded enough to explore them and choose what’s best for your dog. not every situation is the same for every dog or cat!

100% agree. shots and an inexperienced vet tech destroyed my dog. allergies, licking scratching, lethargy and a botched dental made my dogs quality of life plummet her final months. she was my best friend who i miss everyday so when people like ellen speak i want to sound off. it is her thinking and tunnel vision that gets these animals in places they should never be. one size does not fit all and if that is your mentality maybe you should seek a different career. i spent thousand of dollars to try to help my dog after the experts ruined her. so yes suki you are absolutely correct but i would not rule out saving another dog. just find a vet who will listen to your concerns and work with you. i found one and so can you. good luck!

Such a nice dog! It’s hard for me to understand why he keeps getting passed over. I am glad that this campaign has begun and hope that he finds a good home very soon!
