Wednesdays at Fun 107 are for the animals and let’s be honest, it’s every other day of the week, too. But on Wednesdays, we step aside and give the spotlight to an animal that is up for adoption on the SouthCoast.

With the help of local shelters, we continue our mission to get as many animals adopted as possible. We have helped guinea pigs find homes, bunnies find homes, and hopefully, we can find this handsome boy a home.

Meet Al, the one-year-old boxer mix currently in the foster system through Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River. Al knows what it feels like to go to a home because he has had that experience once before, but unfortunately, it didn’t work out. He and his big sister never hit it off because she didn’t like giving up being the center of attention, so now, Al patiently waits for a second shot at forever.

Forever Paws recommends that Al’s new owners will own their home, have no other animals, and have kids no younger than 12 years old.

Just because he didn’t work out for one family, doesn’t mean he can’t be the perfect fit for a different one.

Does Al sound like a good fit for you and your family? Fill out the application on the Forever Paws website and email it Arianna Silva, the director of Forever Paws. Since he is not at the shelter, he can be seen by appointment only.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
