Brandon Honda has joined forces with The New Barker magazine and Project RAD Foundation to try to place as many long-stay dogs as possible from the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center (PRC) through December 31, 2018. Featured dogs have been available for adoption at PRC for more than 30 days and urgently need adoption to avoid near-term euthanasia.

Hershey Gold is a three-year-old, male German Shepherd mix that has been neutered, is house-trained, knows basic obedience commands, and is very friendly. He has been dog #A1879625 at PRC for since Oct. 24, 2018 and his time is running out. He loves to go on walks, playing with his toys, and being in the pool. Come meet Hershey Gold on Thursday, December 6, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Brandon Honda and help us find him a loving, new home.

PRC personnel will be on hand to answer questions and offer on-site adoptions for convenience. In addition to being neutered or spayed, each adoptee is microchipped, was given a rabies vaccination and a heartworm test, and will be gifted with a doggie swag bag from The New Barker magazine filled with doggie treats and gifts. Adoption fees are being waived for all PRC long-stay dogs adopted through the end of the year.

“Test Drive a Shelter Dog” at Brandon Honda is part of the national #GetEmHomeChallenge, a three-month contest offered by Maddie’s Fund at toward its mission finding a forever home for all shelter animals. We’re trying to help PRC win up to $50,000 in grant money to help defray operating costs.  For more information, visit
