It’s only $20/year per household - less than 6 cents a day. You get an awful lot for that!

10-17 BostonBOSTON

Breed: Labrador cross
Sex: Female, spayed
Age: 3 years, 2 months

Hi there! My name is Boston and I am in search of my forever home.
I was surrendered to the shelter when my previous care givers were no longer able to provide me with the exercise and undivided attention I need and deserve!
I am only a few years old and have not had a chance to experience a stable home environment. I am sweet, affectionate, love walks and exploring. I am just as happy spending time beside you while you watch TV or read a book.
If I sound like a good match for you, please inquire at the front desk for more information.I can be shy when meeting new people and feel best if I am introduced with a person I am already familiar with so if you are interested in meeting me, please call ahead to make sure my trainer is here to bring me out to you! 
The Oakville Milton Humane Society is located at 445 Cornwall Road.
