So stories are just the best to write them.
At Cars 108, we love to take time each week to help Genesee County’s Humane Society find homes for their animals. From dogs to cats, birds to rabbits, we love helping these animals find their new home.
While each and every one of them seems to touch our hearts every week, including yours during our Tuesday Tails segment, none touched us more than Nugget. This cute 4 year old pit mix arrived at HSGC in January 2020 when the pandemic was in full swing. Yes … 2020.
We introduced Nugget during the Tuesday Tails in August 2021 because we know how badly he wanted to find a new family to love. He was playful and full of energy, which made it difficult for him to connect at times at first. Thanks to Key-Lore Kanine Country Club, Nugget had 6 weeks of training and became the perfect little guy looking for a home … and now he has one.
After 658 days with the Humane Society of Genesee County, Nugget left his new family on Monday. When I saw the live feed on Facebook and all the good wishes, I realized we all loved Nugget so much and we all cheered him on. Yeah … I cried. How could you not When he saw that cute face, he realized he was going home.
To the young couple who opened their hearts and homes to give love to this animal that has waited almost 2 years to find a family … thank you.
To Nugget … we are so happy for you and love you sweet boy. Cuddle up with your new family now and enjoy your special life.
