Good news first! The following pets I shared have now been adopted (click on their name to see original post):
- Brinkley (dog) & Fedora (cat) at Best Friends Animal Society
- Angel & Honey Boo Boo, brother & sister Pit Bulls in NY
- Hocus, a Maine Coon Cat here in NH
Today I am sharing a black Labrador retriever named Deeks. Deeks is currently at the Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society in Brownsville, Vermont.
Some details about Deeks:
- Large adult male, 2 years old
- Up to date on routine shots
Deeks is a friendly and loving boy with a lot of energy! He is learning to contain his excitement and to walk nicely on a leash. He loves to run and play and would do well in a fenced in yard where he can get lots of exercise. He came into the shelter as a stray. Isn’t he handsome?

**UPDATE: AS OF 8/5/14, DEEKS HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!**
Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society has an interesting history. It was founded in 1915 by Frank Mackenzie, a Woodstock, Vermont businessman in memory of his wife Lucy. Lucy was a caring woman who quietly worked to help those in need. After her death, her husband starting the society to help children, horses, and other animals. They eventually no longer saw the need to serve children, and they moved their original location in Woodstock,Vermont to 14 acres in West Windsor. Today it is one of the oldest operating no-kill humane societies in the country.
