He's 3-4 years old, has been neutered, is up-to-date-with his vaccinations and is litter box trained. He's hoping you're grabbing your car keys, putting your cat carrier in the car and will be heading to the shelter to adopt him TODAY!

Missy is a two year old Hound/Pointer mix who came to us after she and some of her siblings were surrendered to the County Shelter. Missy was terrified when we met her one year ago. She backed away from people and would not come to the inside of her pen if a volunteer was nearby. Gradually she has gained confidence by attaching herself to Buster, a large Hound who is very gentle with her. Missy and Buster have become great friends and now they love to run in the fenced area together. It would be wonderful if these two could be adopted together. We know Missy will do best in a home with another dog to give her confidence, and with humans who are willing spend the time to socialize her and help her conquer her fears. She has improved enormously and now will come up to us and play a bit, but then she backs off. Missy is two years old, weighs 40 pounds and has been spayed. It’s easy for us to see that she has a lot of love in her heart and she’s ready to give it to the lucky person who adopts her.
SHELTER PETS WITH TRUST ISSUES
Shelter pets that exhibit shyness on meeting new people are very often overlooked for adoption, but people who are willing to invest some time and patience with these pets are rewarded with a lifetime of love and loyalty.

TEN REASONS TO ADOPT A BLACK CAT . . .
MAKE SOMEONE SMILE TODAY!
ADOPT A PET!!
Our "Rover" this year was a sweet girl named Janie. She did a GREAT job of picking our 3 winners and was very proud of herself for the job she had done! Janie was specially chosen to be our "Rover" because of her enthusiasm when it comes to chasing tennis balls. She's one of our shelter dogs and is available for adoption. She's approximately 3 years old and a bit on the plump side at 60 pounds. Janie is a happy, extremely friendly and healthy girl. She's well mannered around people, LOVES to go for car rides, is crate trained, and has been spayed. She would dearly love to have her own family. If you are interested in adopting Janie or just would like some additional information about her, contact us by email by clicking on the button below.
