The Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group in Indiana, United States, rescued the 11-pound pooch from a Kentucky kill shelter. Although this type of rescue story is one of many, Tonik’s notoriety is from his distinctive human-like appearance.
Homeward Bound hopes the attention to Tonik’s face will help him, and other rescue animals, find a home. The agency only asks for a donation of $250, as the agency’s owner, Jen Schwartz, has advised The Huffington Post that the animals often need expensive health treatments.
Tonik has been thoroughly examined, neutered, micro-chipped and groomed. All of his shots are up-to-date. Parties interested in adoption can find out information about Tonik, and other rescue pets, on the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group website.
