Zeus, the pit-bull mix taken from his home in Butte last week and located in Charleston, W. Va., is headed home.

On a rainy Tuesday morning at the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association, there was a ray of light for one of its residents.

“He is excited, he is going to be happy to see his family I know that for sure,” says Julie Hypes, an animal behavioral specialist at KCHA.

Now Zeus is finally em-"barking” on his 2,000-mile journey home to his family in Butte after he was taken from them in October and found at KCHA.

Zeus will start his journey in Charleston, and Many Paws Volunteer Transport has coordinated a four-day, 30-leg trip that will require numerous volunteers to eventually get him back home to his humans Cassandra and her two little girls in time for Christmas.

Zeus is homeward bound at last

“It’s wonderful, this is a great experience, a great opportunity to show the people and communities across the United States offering to help, jumping on this to help reunite this dog with its family,” said Jenn Robles, a volunteer with Many Paws Volunteer Transport, during a Skype call from her home in California.

“We are so happy for you Zeus, we are going to dearly miss you here but we are happy to get you’ll get the best Christmas gift ever and that’s to be reunited with your family,” says Tiffany Steele, KCHA playgroup monitor.
