Tux is one of many cute dogs who have found a safe place to land at the Sequoia Humane Society in Eureka while waiting for their forever home. A privately funded organization, Sequoia Humane addresses multiple aspects of its no-kill philosophy in a holistic fashion—so not only are Tux and his pals safe and sound while they wait, they also get plenty of walks and TLC from dedicated volunteers.
