Guapo arrived at the
Dumb Friends League
on March 4 in search of a
new life. 138 days later, he
 nally met the family he’d
been waiting for all along.
Guapo was a constant
source of tail wags and
gentle kisses during the height of the coronavirus pandemic and it was all smiles as the handsome American bulldog mix happily walked out the shelter doors to be welcomed by his new family.
Guapo was just one of many pets who have been waiting longer than most to  nd their new homes. Meet some of the Dumb Friends League’s longest residents below:

Q: What are your responsibilities at Harmony?
A: Forthe rstonetotwohours,Ihelpshovel poop wherever horses or other equines are being kept. After that I could be doing a variety of things like mowing the grass and helping to keep the place looking sharp! I have also massaged a mini-horse, cleaned the gunk out of the animals’ water, unloaded hay into their feeders and helped  x a fence that the horses are always destroying.
Q: How often do you go?
A: I’m at Harmony two (full) mornings a
week – from 7 a.m. to noon.
Q:Did you have any experience working around horses before?
A: Zero!
Q:Has anything surprised you about the
A: I wouldn’t say anything has surprised me, but I have learned a lot about horses and equine care.
Q:What have you liked most about the experience or what's been the best part of the experience?
A: I love being outside. It’s a beautiful property, and being out in the fresh air, even if it’s really hot, is a nice change of pace from what I usually do for the League. It’s fun having the horses and donkeys come up to you to socialize while you’re in their pen. They like getting rubs and scratches. It’s also rewarding when a horse that doesn’t normally seek out affection, lets you get close and pet them.
