Luverne and his brother, Lester, were rescued from a severe hoarding situation. Because there were so many animals involved, neither boy was properly socialized and they were nearly feral when they arrived at HUA. They were both terrified and wanted nothing to do with getting to know us, let alone being touched or loved. Because we understand this behavior and know it all too well, we were able to win the boys over in a fairly short period of time and now they are two of the silliest little guys on campus. Luverne is a very happy boy with the sweetest of temperaments. He loves the humans now and takes every chance he can get to sneak in hugs and kisses. His tail goes a mile a minute when he knows recess is nearing and that means BIG FUN. He dashes about greeting everyone and carrying on like it's his very own birthday party. Luverne and his brother now have the very best chance at a perfectly wonderful life and we couldn't be happier for them.
