Welcome Elmo to Humphrey House

Elmo represents every reason why Humphrey House for Homeless Animals was founded.

Elmo's a senior...he's blind...he's deaf...he was neglected...and he certainly didn't deserve to be stuck in a shelter.

Elmo is estimated to be around 12 years old and weighs 16 pounds. We believe he is a Miniature Poodle, or possibly a Schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle). Despite being blind, deaf, missing half his ear, and roaming the streets of Baltimore city alone while covered in fleas, he is still the sweetest boy you could ask for.

Elmo has been cleaned up, chipped and vaccinated. He had bloodwork done at our vet yesterday and everything looks good. His eyes do not seem to be painful, so we have ruled out having to remove them. ELmo is being treated for a double ear infection, which may help restore some of his hearing. His next step is being neutered. While under anesthesia, they can evaluate his teeth.

Elmo is scheduled to be neutered this Friday (September 16, 2022) at Homeward Bound Veterinary Services in Bel Air, Maryland. He is available for adoption immediately as long as his adopter can accommodate his neuter appointment. Humphrey House for Homeless Animals is located in Harford County, Maryland for meetings. Thank you!

Send us a message on Facebook to meet this sweet boy.

Humphrey House for Homeless Animals is a small, foster-based rescue located in Abingdon, Maryland.
