Buddy's Story

In a nusthell, everybody loves Buddy! 


As one of the youngest rescues that was discovered and adopted during the closure of the Marion County Humane Society, Buddy quickly became "famous" in Jefferson when he bolted from his yard the following July 4th, during our town's annual fireworks display. 


For over 2 weeks, numerous people in our community searched for him.  When he was successfully found and returned to his owners, Angie and Shaggy, they quickly became involved in advocating for "fireworks safety" with regard to pets. 


On any given day, Buddy can be found at their local, downtown business, Made in the Shade... greeting customers, collecting ear scratches, and cheesing for pictures.  And on September 20-21, he will return as the Grand Marshall for Woofstock, helping to kick off our second annual 5K, 1-mile Dog Walk, and Kids' Fun Run that bears his name!  


Additionally, starting this September, Buddy will be inviting a special guest to Woofstock each year!  Follow us here as we add highlights to this page introducing "Buddy's Buddy" for 2024!  


Come join us for Woofstock and meet Buddy... and his friend!
