The child who wrote the note had a request for Rhino's new family: That they keep his full name, Rhino Lightning, and include the last name of his new family. The writer also asks that Rhino gets a bath at least once a month and that he gets "lots of attention."
Shuster said Rhino is nervous inside the kennel at the shelter, but calm and goofy once he's out of it. He's not a fan of cats and can smell peanut butter "from a mile away." Any children in his new family need to be at least 8 years old.
The note writer asks that Rhino's new family makes sure he's safe and tells him "I love and miss him."
The family who adopts Rhino will get a photocopy of the child's notes. The organization takes adoption applications on its website.
