Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

I have to admit my feelings are hurt because I was no longer wanted. It is difficult to understand how you can be in a family one day and at the shelter the next. I told myself I am not going to be sad I am going to put on my happy face and start looking for a real family. Hey look at my picture don't you think I did a good job with my happy face. In case you would want to be my new family, let me tell you about myself. I am a year old Shepherd mix. I do want to be the only dog in our home and I have never lived with cats or children. I am friendly and playful and I like to go on car rides. I will need help to learn about the rules of house training. I will be spayed before you adopt me. I am working hard to stay positive and I am just sure I will find a family soon. I was adopted but returned because someone in the household developed allergies. I am concerned that I may not get another chance at adoption because I am nearly ten years old. Please don't ignore me when you are at the shelter visiting because you are looking at the kittens. We seniors need a loving family too. I am a member of the Adopt a Senior Program which means you can adopt me at a reduced rate. I am neutered and house trained and well mannered. I don't want to spend my senior years in the shelter, won't you help me. I do enjoy eating canned tuna, it is so yummy and Meow Mix is quite tasty too.

We are looking for volunteers to walk dogs, cat cuddle or to help with general housekeeping at the shelter. Volunteering at our shelter is very rewarding! Our animals love the attention, and the socialization provided by volunteers helps get them adopted more quickly. Dog walkers must be at least 18 years old and able to handle energetic dogs. If you have a few free hours each week, please give us a call at 814-443-2121.
