TAMPA, Fla. - Nov. 8, 2018 - PRLog -- Brandon Honda has joined forces with The New Barker magazine and Project RAD Foundation to showcase long-stay, shelter dogs at the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center (PRC) through December 31, 2018. Shelter dogs being promoted weekly have been available for adoption at PRC for more than 30 days and most urgently need adoption to avoid near-term euthanasia.

Chico is our featured rescue dog this week. He's a three to five year old, neutered black and white Labrador retriever mix, #A1934880 at PRC. He is house-broken and prefers to be the only pet in the home. He's smart, playful, affectionate, knows the commands of sit, paw, down and stay, and is eager to learn. He loves belly rubs, playing tag, and going for walks.

Chico will make a personal appearance November 8 at Brandon Honda from 2 to 5 p.m. to meet and play with the public. PRC personnel will be on hand to for questions and offer on-site adoptions for convenience. In addition to being neutered or spayed, each rescue adoptee is microchipped, given a rabies vaccination and a heartworm test, and gifted with a doggie swag bag from The New Barker magazine filled with doggie treats and gifts. Adoption fees are being waived for all long-stay (30+ days) dogs from PRC 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 of creating a no-kill nation, where every rescue pet finds a forever home.
