Adoptable Pets Of The Month – Lil & Phil

Meet March’s Adoptable Pets of the Month!

 

It’s hard to pick just one of these sweet hounds to show off so we chose both! Phil and Lil were picked up as strays back in Fall 2015 and have been at the shelter since.

Both dogs are friendly, sweet and get along w/ all dogs and people! The shelter hopes to see them adopted together as they are a very bonded sibling pair and love to play with one another!

 

If you or someone you know is interested in giving these goofballs their forever home please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

 

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Billy Joe

Meet February’s Adoptable Pet of the Month!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and no one deserves to be loved more than Billy Joe.

Billy Joe has been at the shelter since September 2015!!! That’s entirely too long for this sweet hound. Billy Joe is a young male who was picked up as a stray and never claimed.

He is friendly with other dogs and people. He has had one seizure since staying at the shelter so he will need someone special who will love him despite this issue!

If you or someone you know is interested in giving Billy Joe his forever home, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

 

 

 

 

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Horton

Meet Horton!

Update August 28, 2015:  Horton was adopted today!!

Yet another hound in our area picked up as a stray and never reclaimed by his owner.  Horton is one of our longest residents, being with us since April 17th.  He is always ready to go for a hike or run, singing the song of his people on the way; and always on the look out for a dropped tail gate to go for a ride.  🙂

Horton is a shelter volunteer favorite and our volunteers love to take this guy for a walk through the wooded paths (you never have to worry about running up on any wild life as long as he is by your side). He pulls a bit, but responds to commands and will stop and check on you when you stop.

Horton has tested well with the other dogs we have had him around at the shelter, but he should not be in a home with cats or small, furry animals.

Even though he has been at the shelter for three months, Horton still has a very happy demeanor and has remained a super friendly boy with everyone he sees and meets.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Clark

Meet Clark!

Update June 20, 2015:  Clark was adopted today!!

This fun and entertaining young dog was picked up as a stray and never reclaimed.  Now known as Clark, he is ready for his forever home–preferably one with an endless supply of tennis balls and a pool (we are not sure which he loves more!!). He has a wonderful temperament and has tested well with all of the dogs we have had him around at the shelter.

We are not exactly sure what Clark is mixed with, but we joke that he looks like a very long-legged Jack Russell Terrier. We are guesstimating him to be a little under a year old and weighing ~40-45lbs.

For additional information about Clark, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Gladys

Meet Gladys!

Update June 6, 2015:  Gladys found a foster home today!!

Gladys is an older girl who was left to fend for herself when her owner moved away. She is very friendly, easy to handle, and has gotten along well with other dogs. She has no teeth left in the front, but that doesn’t keep her from eating well and even chewing rawhides with her back teeth. Gladys is pretty calm, but she still LOVES to go out on long walks. She is surprisingly quiet, especially for a hound, and would make a great companion for any family.

For additional information about Gladys, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Ike

Meet Ike!

Update May 16, 2015:  Ike found his forever home today!!

This handsome fellow is Ike. Ike was picked up as a stray all the way back on December 17th, 2014. When he first came in he was very calm and quiet, but as the months have gone by Ike has become frustrated by being locked in a kennel. He is people-friendly but very active and needs work on his manners, so a home that will take him running or hiking regularly is a must. He is very strong on the leash around the shelter, but volunteers say that once he is away from the shelter the leash is often slack and he listens well.

While we have been able to introduce him to other dogs successfully when he was very tired, he generally gets extremely worked up around them so a single-pet home would be better for him. Ike appears to be a Lab mix and we estimate that he is around 2-3 years old and about 60-70 lbs.

For additional information about Ike, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Gemma

Meet Gemma!

Update March 28, 2015:  Gemma found her forever home today!!

Gemma is our third longest resident, this gorgeous girl has been with us since 12/03/14!  Gemma is a super sweet little girl who has loved everyone she meets. She is very energetic and needs some work on her manners, but she sure has a lot of love to give. As you can see from her photos, Gemma LOVES her stuffed animals.  She keeps them close, parades around with them, and will present visitors with one when they come up to her cage. She has tested well with the other dogs she has been around at the shelter, but if you have another dog, please bring him/her to meet and greet before adopting!

For additional information about Gemma, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Marnie

Meet Marnie!

Marnie is our longest resident now, arriving at the shelter as a stray on October 21, 2014.  She is a young adult that loves everyone and gets along well with other dogs.  We are not sure what she is mixed with…any ideas (she has the most beautiful brindle markings)?  What ever she is, she 100% lovable, and is a favorite at the shelter.  Volunteers always ask why she is still there!  Marnie is quiet in her kennel, always waiting patiently to be let out for a run on the trails or a good romp with stuffed toys in the yard.

For additional information about Marnie, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – Blake

Meet Blake!

Update February 2, 2015:  Blake found his forever home today!!

Blake is now our longest resident at the shelter. He was found as a stray with two puppies back in August and all three were severely underweight, but with several small meals a day, they all recovered quickly. The two dogs Blake came in with were adopted several months ago and Blake still waits for his forever home.

Blake is very friendly and doesn’t know what the word “stranger” means. He is very food motivated, so would be a breeze to train. He is high energy (but who wouldn’t be cooped up in a cage for almost 5 months??) and will need and active home and one that can give him time to adjust to life outside of the shelter. Blake LOVES to go on runs and is happiest when he is running along the trails near the shelter with volunteers. He would make an awesome running or hiking partner!

Blake recently had a very painful abcess in his leg. He was an absolute superstar while being examined at Main Street Veterinary Clinic all of the staff loved him. He is all healed up now and doing great!

We are guesstimating Blake to be ~2 years old. We do know that he should not go to a home with cats or small animals. He tested well while on leash with another unaltered male, but if you are interested in adopting Blake and have another dog, please bring him/her for a meet and greet!

For additional information about Blake, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.

Adoptable Pet Of The Month – BatGirl

Meet BatGirl!

Update October 31, 2014:  BatGirl found her forever home today!!

It is hard to find something more adorable than this pocket Pittie! BatGirl is ~2 years old and weighs in around 30lbs. She is cute as a button with an even cuter personality. And get a load of those ears! Although she can be picky about which dogs she chooses to be friends with, Batgirl loves everyone she meets and LOVES her squeaky toys just a little more (so much so that she will bury them so she knows where they are for later). BatGirl has been spayed and is up to date on all vaccinations. Her time is running out and she needs to find her forever home soon.

For additional information about BatGirl, please contact Friends of Animal Care & Control.
