Adopt this Pet: McCorry

Give this dog a wonderful life in 2020

Ask anyone who has adopted a pet and they’ll share with you their story of love, fun and companionship. Why? Because shelter pets are amazing! Most pets taken into the care of shelters and rescue groups find themselves homeless through no fault of their own (moving, landlord issues, etc.). Because of this, shelters and rescues are full of loving, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and often trained pets who are eager to please their new owners. This handsome brown lab mix named McCorry is the perfect example. He was brought to the Hilton Head Humane Association with a large infected wound, then lost some hair because he was allergic to the medication. He’s all fixed up now and is eager to kick the new decade off in style with a new owner.

More about McCorry

Color: Brown

Age: 1 (around 7 human years)

Likes: Immediately touching a plate after the server warns it’s hot. “Is it really hot or just McDonald’s coffee hot? Only one way to find out!” — McCorry

Dislikes: People who take up both armrests. “Wanting two armrests is totally understandable since you have two arms, but stealing both of them with strangers on both sides is kind of a jerk move. One is for you, the other is for sharing.” — McCorry

Adopt him: Hilton Head Humane Association, hhhumane.org, 843-681-8686
