Featured Pet Of The Week

I'm called "SAMMIE".

I'm a playful, little girl.
I'm a PUPPY and love everyone.
I'm friendly and VERY happy when I get to spend time with you.
I'm currently 9- to 11-months-old and only weigh 21 lbs. So, I'm going to stay a smaller dog.
They think I might be a Boston Terrier/American Bully mix.
I walk well on leash. Though I will need to learn not to jump on people.
I get along with other dogs and even cats. Though other four-legged members of the household should be ready to play with me.
I was skinny when I was brought to the shelter and am still gaining weight.
I was on my own for at least a week until a nice lady finally caught me and brought me here.
My coat is still filling back out too. I had a staph infection that I just finished antibiotics for and now I'm good to go.

11/1 Route 421 near Madison Village.

UPDATE!!!!: I had the chance to go and get spayed today...so I did!
I will be available for adoption tomorrow (11-15-2018) at only $55.00!!

I'm "EDWARD".

I may look like a quiet kitty in my photo, but I'm part of a playful pair of KITTENS.
My brother, Jacob, and I would love to be adopted into a home together.
You won't regret adopting both of us because we're a hoot.
We're really playful and will include you in our games.
We're named after Edward and Jacob in the Twilight series.
There are times when we're jumping around that you would think we have supernatural powers.
If you don't know about Twilight, we would love to cuddle on your couch and catch a Twilight Marathon with you.
I'm an orange Tabby with white and Jacob is a Tuxedo cat. We're 5-months-old.
We are both POLYDACTYLS. I wonder if that's why we're so springy.

**I'm $45 OFF my adoption and neuter fee courtesy of the shelter and the Jefferson County Humane Society.
When you adopt us both, we're $90 OFF.**

"STORM"--Boxer mix
4 years   Male 46 lbs.

I love people and am very affectionate toward them.
I'm a handsome guy that loves to play fetch with tennis balls.
I really enjoy squeaky toys too. But you'll need to buy sturdy ones as I look for what is squeaking.
I am very clean in my kennel and appear to be house-trained.
I sit nicely and am ready for a walk when you leash me.
Just be sure to let me know what you want from me so I don't lead you everywhere.
I need more time to learn to walk beside you on a leash.
I will do best without cats or other small animals in the household.
I seem to not like the other male dogs at the shelter, but that could change after I'm neutered.
I'm better with female dogs, so they may be okay.
Bring your dog to meet me so we can be sure before you adopt me.
I do like to have things set up comfortably and prefer an indoor home.
At the shelter, I demand a thick, comfy blanket in my kennel.
I also like bones to chew on to keep me busy.
The staff know when I'm not satisfied with the service here because I stop keeping my kennel clean.

DONATIONS NEEDED
   

--------------------------------------------------------------
The shelter currently has a large need for PUPPY food - both canned and dry.
The shelter also needs soft dog treats like Pupperoni.

As always, THANK YOU for your help!
--------------------------------------------------------------

"LUCY"--Boxer mix
3-4 years   Female 40 lbs.

I recently had a litter of puppies.
I'll get my girlish figure back soon.
I am great with cats and appear good with other dogs. I get upset over another getting extra attention so I will be easily taught how to not be so jealous. All my puppies have found homes and would really like one of my own. I am super clean in my kennel too so I may be house broken or can learn my new routine easily!

**I'm up-to-date on my vaccinations.**

"ROANIE" - Boxer mix
1-2 years   Female 45 lbs.

I'm a friendly, happy gal.
You would think I'm a puppy since I'm still really playful.
But the good news is that I'm not a puppy. So I'm playful, but under control.
I'm a good-looking dog. My white markings really set off my black patches.

11/9 Left at the shelter

"COPPER" - Lurcher
3-5 years   Male 49 lbs.

I'm really not a 'hound' even though I may look like one.
I'm very friendly and people-oriented.
I would make a great family pet! I think I would get along with children really well.
I enjoy being active, but I have a calm demeanor.
I walk well on leash and I'll try to please you.
My coat is pretty. It has a pastel quality to it.
In case you don't know what a "Lurcher" is...I'm a mix of a sight hound and a working breed.
They're guessing my blood line is from a Greyhound. I also have a habit of sucking on my blanket like a pacifier.

Red is my brother.

11/9 Madison Village Apartments

"PASSION"--Hound mix PUPPY
14-16 weeks   Female 29 lbs

I'm A LOT cuter than my photo.
I wouldn't hold still and I wouldn't look at the camera.
There's just too much else to do! A photo session wasn't on my bucket list.
I'm a fun gal with distinctive ticking. It almost looks merle or brindle.

"AMELIA" - Calico Short-Hair - SPAYED
5-7 yrs   Female

I'm a lap cat, so adopt me and we'll keep each other warm this winter.
We can nuzzle our faces against each other too. I enjoy that.
I'm a delightful lady who would really love a home to lounge around in.
I appear to have had a home once and would love to have one again.
You might find me lounging in the shelter lobby as I do not like being in my cage.
If you do find me in my cage, I might come off as moody until my cage door opens.
I appear to be spayed, but a vet needs to verify that.
So, you'll still prepay for my spay. If the doctor says I am spayed, you will receive your money back.
I'm not fond of being carried, so I'm probably not used to being around young children.
I'm not fond of dogs either. I will hiss or run away.
I would be okay with dogs that would leave me alone or if I have my own space where they can't follow me.
Come in and visit me and you'll find out why I'm a favorite of one of the volunteers.
You'll probably find me in the shelter director's office. I've decided that I like to help her with paperwork.

"ELIZA" - Short-Hair Tabby w/ White **SPAYED**
1 year   Female

**I have now been SPAYED and I'm up-to-date on my rabies vaccination, so I'm just $45 total to adopt!**

I'm just a little bit of a thing even though I'm full grown.
I'm looking for a home where I can relax in the window or next to you in a comfy chair.
I'm a pretty, brown Tabby with a large white collar, blaze and toes.
I'm beyond ready for my furever home!!!
I came to the shelter pregnant and had my babies here.
Then I was a great mom, but had to wait for them to be weaned before I became available for adoption.
Needless to say, that took awhile and I've been here since May!
You will find me roaming the shelter with DOC the cat.

I'm a frisky kitten that loves to play.
I have a game I play. It's called "tickle my tummy".
Play it with me and watch what happens.
If you want to cuddle with me, try it after I eat. That's when I take time to relax.
I'm now 7- to 8-months-old and am used to the routine here at the shelter.
I'm a laid back kitty who likes being around people and other pets.
So, I'm okay with a dog in the family, they just need to realize I'm the superior animal.
I keep my cage clean here at the shelter and plan to keep my new home clean too.
I'm a Tuxedo cat, but I have more black than white.
I have a friend named Charo. She's a cuddly kitty. It would be great if we could be adopted together.
But we're okay with going to separate homes too.

"DOC" - AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
   Male

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.

I am available for adoption to an approved indoor-only home. Maybe even to a interested nursing home!?
I am very loved here and the shelter staff and director will all have to approve my adoption.

I'm neutered and up-to-date on my vaccinations.

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!

"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.
