Mark & RayBaby Boy
Howdy Y'all, we are a year and a half old Coon Hounds searching for a new home. We had a home but our people moved to a place where dogs are not allowed. Our special request is that we go to a home together as we have always lived together. We know it is asking a lot but we would be heartbroken to be separated. We are friendly with other dogs but not so good with small animals due to our prey drive so it would be best to not have cats or other small animals in the home. We are neutered so we are ready to go. We do get a bit possessive of our food and like real brothers we sometimes squabble over our toys. Just feed us in a quiet place where we will not be disturbed and make sure we each get a toy. Guess what, the nice people here at the shelter know how much we want to stay together so we are two for the price of one! Now that is a deal you should not pass up. Hey you guys, why am I still at the shelter??? I had a family, they moved and I was left behind! Well I am not sitting still for this, I am a good boy and I deserve a good home. I have been here for three months and I think it is about time for me to move on. I don't understand why I am not chosen, for heaven's sake people my adoption fee has already been paid, someone just has to pick me. I am already neutered so you don't have to worry about that. Please help me out and make me a part of your family. I am so tired of waiting.

Please help!  We need volunteers to help us exercise the dogs.  We try to walk the dogs each day to provide them with the exercise and attention they so desperately need.  You can volunteer as little or as much as you like.  If you would be interested in helping us care for our animal guests, please call the shelter at 814-443-2121.
