I'm "REMUS"

I'm a sweetheart!
I'm a happy & well-behaved boy.
I walk really well on leash and try to please you by doing what you ask of me.
I was adopted once and it turns out I'm housebroken & crate-trained too.
I was only returned because the other dog in the household didn't like me.
At the shelter the other dogs and cats like me, but please bring your other dogs to meet me before adoption.
I have a gorgeous chocolate-brown coat with a white collar, white blaze, white socks and even a white tip on my tail.
I'm a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever mix who is 5- to 7-years-old and weighs 42 lbs.

8/31

My name is "KIT KAT".

I'm a very loving girl.
I will instantly start purring when you pick me up.
You'll enjoy cuddling with me as I'm a pretty gal with soft, medium-length fur.
I really don't like being at the shelter in a cage.
I used to have a home. I'm starting to feel sad and wondering if I'll ever have a home again.
I'm a 2-year-old, brown Tabby with white who is already spayed and up-to-date on my rabies vaccination.
I'm just $45 total to adopt!

My son, Kellogg, is here with me. He really wants to stay with me.
If you adopt me, he's free* if you'll adopt him too.
He's a shy, brown Tabby who has my soft, medium-length fur.
He's only 6-months-old, but has bonded to me.

*There is currently a $45 off special on all kittens & cats who are not spayed/neutered courtesy of the shelter and the Jefferson County Humane Society.
Kellogg also has a $30 sponsorship if adopted with Kit Kat.
This means he would be free if the adopter chooses Pets Alive for his neuter and rabies vaccination.

"LOLA" - Cur mix PUPPY
6 months   Female 32 lbs




9/9 Black Rd.

"ARIEL" - Labrador Retriever mix PUPPY
6 months   Female 32 lbs

I'm a very energetic pup and will need someone who can spend a lot of time giving me exercise and playtime as well as consistent training. Right now I'm a jumper, so that is definitely something we'll need to work on. It would be best if I went to a home without small children.

9/5

"ELI"--Boxer - NEUTERED
Senior   Male 49 lbs.

I'm a well-manner gentleman who is very happy to be at the shelter.
I have no complaints as I'm getting extra TLC and good food.
I may look 'grumpy' in my picture, but I'm a happy fellow.
Click to see my 2nd photo. I had lots of fun rolling around in the grass.
I'm below the weight I should be and will look healthier soon.
I'm looking for a home that will love me and give me somewhere warm & cozy to sleep.
I'd really appreciate being taken to a vet for a dental. I'm eating soft food at the shelter.
I'm a sweet senior that will give you more love than you can give me.
However, be prepared for a few senior problems.
I have arthritis and have started glucosamine pills.
I'm also a bit incontinent right now. The vet should check that out too.

**I'm NEUTERED. My adoption fee is $45 plus the cost of my rabies vaccination.**

9/14 600 W and Chicken Run Rd.

"RANDY"--Labrador Retriever
1 year   Male 73 lbs.

I'm a teenage Lab with all that entails.
I'm a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky guy that loves everyone.
I'm also 73 lbs of high octane. You'll want to make sure I get my exercise and playtime.
I seemed to want to play with the other dogs and cats I was introduced to today.
Though you will want to make sure your other pets are ready to play with rambunctious me.
I don't have any training yet. So expect to have to train me not to pull on my leash, to sit, and all the rest of the basics.

9/17 Green Hills Dr.


"ROSELLA"--Dachshund mix PUPPY
4-6 months   Female

9/21 Strader St. with a collar

"HONEYSUCKLE"--Labrador Retriever mix PUPPY - ADOPTION PENDING
8-10 weeks   Female 12 lbs.

I'm a sweet little girl.
I have a few special needs right now.
I went to the vet after I came to the shelter.
I had a hematoma on my right ear that needed to be drained.
I am also being treated for ear infections in both ears.
I'm currently blind in my right eye. The vet thinks the injury that caused the hematoma also caused the blindness.
After the swelling goes down and the pressure is relieved, I may regain my sight. But there are no guarantees.
The good news is that puppies are very adaptable. I'll play and cuddle just the same as any other puppy.

I'm looking for a home where I can relax in the window or next to you in a comfy chair.

HELP OUR MEDICAL FUND:
Donate Steel and Aluminum Cans   

Not only can you donate aluminum cans for recycling, you can now DONATE STEEL CANS too!
All we ask is that you rinse out the steel cans really well (we don't want to encourage not-so-adoptable critters to hang out around the shelter) and place them in a separate bag from the aluminum cans.
Drop both types of cans (remember, in separate bags) in the large labeled bin that is on the east side of the shelter - that's to your left when facing the shelter's front door.
Thanks for helping with our four-legged friends' medical needs!

HOW YOU CAN HELP
   

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME

ADOPT A PET

DONATE:
Dog Collars--Medium-sized collars are the most used. Hatfield Control Collars (available at Walmart) are a favorite. Otherwise metal clasps are preferred for strength.
Leashes--strong leashes are preferred.
Toys--Especially strong dog toys like Kong, Orka, Nylabones. And feathered toys for the cats.
Kitty Litter--basic clay, not the more expensive scoopable or clumping
Food--Dog/Puppy & Cat/Kitten dry or canned food.
Pine-Sol
Dawn Dish Soap - the original kind
Tweezers--with strong points
Paper Towels
Aluminum Cans for Recycling--the money is used for the shelter animal medical fund.
Gas Gift Cards--Helps to offset costs of transferring unadopted pets to other adoption agencies.
Money--always useful for medical needs for injured/sick pets, spaying & neutering, supplies, building updates & maintenance.

DOC *not available for adoption*
   

I'm the new King of the Shelter. You will find me roaming the lobby and helping to welcome people and pets to our shelter.

Sometimes you'll find me snoozing in my cozy bed on the counter...I love a good massage, so feel free to spoil me!

I'm a laid back guy, so I'm pretty good at putting people and pets at ease. I'm also helping to "cat-test" other animals.

"BU"
   

IN MEMORY

"BU", our shelter cat, went across the rainbow bridge Monday May 22 from cancer.
Bu greeted visitors with love and playfulness, helped at the front desk with paperwork,
let the incoming pets know it was going to be okay, and tested the dogs for cat-friendliness.
But most of all Bu was friend, family & coworker to shelter employees and volunteers.
Bu is short for Shinobu which means to endure.
He will be missed and will endure in our hearts!
Bu was 17 years old.
