Greetings! My name is Lars, and I'm a tuxedo boy with yellow eyes, born in 2013.

I had a wonderful life, which I shared with the human I loved and her little dog. But, she got very sick and could no longer care for me, so I was brought here in May 2021. It hasn't been easy. She was the only one I had ever been comfortable with. I hid for a very long time. I hoped it was all a bad dream and I'd return home to the life I knew.

After a few months of hiding, I came to accept that this is my new life. The staff and volunteers are very patient and kind, and I realized they meant me no harm. I slowly started accepting pets, and I realized how much I missed the gentle touch of someone who cares for me. I've gone from hiding, to an eye level shelf, where you can't help but notice me. I know I still have a long way to go, but with the help of a gentle natured person, I know I will shine again. I just need a chance.
