6-7 years Male 31 lbs.
I'm a gentle guy with a sweet disposition.
I'm easy-going and would enjoy going for a meandering walk or just laying by your feet.
I have a definite preference for canned food.
"HANK"--Pit Bull Terrier
2-3 years Male 86 lbs.
I'm a bodacious boy.
I'm a friendly, outgoing and handsome young man.
My favorite toys are balls. I love retrieving tennis balls!
I'm energetic and would be best in an active household.
"PEONY"--Miniature Pinscher (MinPin)
1 year Female 6 lbs
I'm a sweet little girl.
I'm very thin. I need some good food and rest from my ordeal.
I can be a little shy. Treats and gentle handling will get me to warm up to you.
"DANNA" - Shih Tzu mix -*SPECIAL NEEDS* - SPAYED
8 yrs Female 15#
I'm partially blind and was raised in a single pet home.
I need to feel safe and I need someone with patience to guide me through learning my home (how to get around, where to sleep, eat, and potty, etc).
I am a sweet girl when I'm not feeling lost and threatened by everything new.
It would be best to not have other pets (neither cats, nor dogs) in my new home.
I am already spayed.
*Update 2/6/18...the vet said that I'm completely blind in one eye due to advanced cataracts and partially blind in the other eye due to a minor cataract. My ideal adopter will be willing to have cataract surgery performed in order to maximize my quality of life.*
2-3 years Male 65 lbs.
If you're familiar with Bluetick Coonhounds, you know I don't like to be cooped up all the time.
I'm itching to go on a long run with my new best friend. I'll make a great exercise companion.
Or another option is to take me out into a big field where I can help you catch whatever you're hunting.
Blueticks are affectionate and loyal companions.
Once I've had my exercise, I'll enjoy relaxing with you.
Just don't expect me to be a lap dog and not just because of my 65 lb size.
Since I'm only 2- to 3-years-old, I want to do my job and put my energy to good use.

"MYA" - Yellow Labrador Retriever mix - *SPECIAL NEEDS*
*I'm not comfortable around people and will need a home that can give me a safe space physically and mentally.
I spent a year in the A.D.O.P.T. program, but will still need someone with patience and ability to work on behavior modification if you want me to become your companion.*

"DREYFUS" - Boxer/Lab mix - *SPECIAL NEEDS*
2-3 yrs Male 62 lbs
I'm a handsome boy with a gentle soul.
I'm very attentive and I want to please.
I will take my treats softly and I wait for them patiently like the gentleman I am.
I'm such a gentle boy that I'll prefer a calm environment.
I scare easily and will feel most comfortable in a quiet home.
I walk great on leash and look forward to going on walks with you to get used to my new neighborhood's sights and sounds.
Don't tell the other dogs, but I'm a staff favorite.
**I was tested for heartworm. Turns out that I'm positive, but I've already started my treatment!
You can talk to the staff or your vet about what this means.**

CAT & KITTEN SPECIAL
$45 OFF TOTAL
Cats or Kittens are $5 OFF their adoption fee and $40 OFF their spay/neuter fee (courtesy of the Jefferson County Humane Society) for a total of $45 OFF.
Cats and kittens that are already spayed or neutered are not included in this special as their adoption fee is only $45.
"THIS" -- Gray Tabby Short-Hair KITTEN -- *SPECIAL*
9-12 months Female
My brother, That, and I came in together.
We are both very loving kittens and would love to go to a home together.
The shelter is offering an ADOPT ONE, GET ONE FREE special on us to help get us into the same home.
We are considered "Special Needs" because we have a neurological disorder. You will notice that we will 'flop over' when we run & play. We bounce back up and keep going. We will live normal healthy lives and will get better once we're not in the shelter.
Life in the shelter is not beneficial for us because we need to be in open spaces learning to coordinate our motions, not in cages without room to run and play.

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", 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.
