Pet pic of the week

Rip Wheeler arrived at Hinsdale Humane Society as a sweet but terrified young dog. He has always loved cuddling with people, but was so afraid of leaving his kennel that he had a hard time even going on walks. Through the dedication of staff and volunteers, Rip has been getting braver every day. Rip is 9 months old, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. His adoption fee is $325. He needs an adopter willing to help him on his journey. If that's you, stop by to meet him. The Hinsdale Humane Society Tuthill Family Pet Rescue & Resource Center is open to the public 2 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, noon to 6 p.m. Wednesdays to Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Call (630) 323-5630 for more information. (photo provided)
