I heard words like skinny and dirty when people described me my first day here. Well I clean up pretty nicely and now I hear people say, "what a cute little dog." It is true I was skinny and am still a bit thin but the way I get fed here I won't be thin for long. I was homeless and often went hungry, I guess I am just not much of a hunter and scavenger. I am happy to make friends with people as I have found that most of the ones I meet are okay and want to make friends with me. Friends are great and you can never have too many but what I am really hoping for is a family I can call my own. I look like a Jack Russell Terrier perhaps about six years old so I have many years ahead of me. I hope I will find a family, or that they find me and we all live happily ever after.
I was abandoned, just left behind by my previous owner, I was scared what would happen to me. I felt saved when I came to the shelter because I am well taken care of by very nice people. But I am starting to feel abandoned again because I have now been waiting for five months to be adopted. I feel sure it does not help that I am black. Black animals, dogs and cats alike, are always the last to find their forever home, if they ever do. I am friendly with other cats and know how to use the litter box. Good news, I am already neutered so you won't have to spend any money to have that done. Five months is a long time to live in a shelter so please consider giving me a place in you home and family.

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.
