Full Description: Hi, I’m Forest Gump! I recently came in to the shelter after being found running loose outside the Humane Society. With the help of Animal Control and staff, I was quickly corralled and brought to safety. I was eager to find help and was even happier for the tasty treats. Being a heeler mix, I am very high energy and active.  I will need a family that can provide daily exercise and enrichment activities.  I’m a smart boy and love having my mind worked! If you’re looking for your next running partner then strap on your sneakers and come meet me! Please call the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter at 641-424-3617 for more information.

Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, flea and dewormer treatment, feline leukemia/FIV test in cats, heartworm test for dogs.

A special volunteer wrote this poem for Forest Gump

Do you feel like there is a missing piece of your life?

You run and you run through the forest of strife

Lets connect the dogs and forget the gym

Lets run and run at our own perfect whim

You’ll find me and love me the pieces will fit

You’ll shout with amazement he’s the one….He’s it!!!
