More Pets Who Need Homes     Last updated  2017-09-25

"Rumor" German Shepherd
3-4 years   Spayed Female

IN FOSTER: Rumor is your typical loyal, laughable German Shepherd. She loves to talk to you and has an opinion on just about everything. Her energy is great for play but she can entertain herself with toys once she settles in. She is still in training and quite jumpy when excited, so may be better with older children. She is highly intelligent and would do best in a home with breed experience that is willing to continue training her into the best dog she can be. If you can provide this, you will be rewarded with sweet snuggles and entertainment for years to come.

She has been altered and fully vetted.

She does require physical fencing.

If you would like an application, please email rockhaven83@gmail.com.

"Roxy" greyhound mix
7 months   female

Owner surrendered. Owner found homes for entire litter but Roxy came back. Too many dogs so had to bring Roxy to the shelter. Tail bobbed by the owner when she read on the internet how to bob tails with rubber bands. Happy, bouncy young girl who seems to like everyone! Contact emelfoster@frontier.com

"Nell" terrier
1-2 years   female

Check out the first picture to see Nell when she was at the shelter - not a happy camper. The second picture is after she was pulled in to foster care. MUCH happier girl.

We can tell more about her temperament now. She is quiet. She seems to enjoy the company of another dog although I don't know that is a necessity though. She is a little tentative still but will jump up on your leg for attention.

About 35#.

If you would like an application for Nell, please email rockhaven83@gmail.com.

"Fargo" bi-eyed husky
4-5 yrs   male

Has some tarter so betting he is middle aged. Seems fine with other dogs. In good shape so don't imagine he was running very long. Found in the Nabb area so could easily have crossed in from Clark County. Has quite an interest in cats. 52 pounds. Fargo had heartworms and his treatment is now completed so he is ready for adoption. A good boy. Crate trained. contact emelfoster@frontier.com

"Baxter" boxer mix
1 yr   neutered male

Baxter, a 1 yr old neutered boxer mix is such a fun boy! Will jump up on you to lick your face! Very active and bouncy and probably needs an active dog to play with. Would be great with an active JOGGER owner or one who loves to hike! May be housebroken. Contact kjbarger@hotmail.com

"Hank" pyranese mix
Adult   male

ON HOLD ANIMAL CRUELTY CASE: These dogs came in thin and starved and wrapped up in their chains. Hank has gained over 25 pounds during the month he has been at the shelter. Once the courts have completed their case, hopefully Hank will be available to find a GOOD home!

" Desiree "
3 months   F

This is a little sweety. Gray tabby with white. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or sueann60@hotmail.com

"Rocky" australian shepherd
Adult   male

ON HOLD ANIMAL CRUELTY CASE: Came in thin and hungry and all wrapped up in their chains. They have been at the shelter for nearly a month now just waiting. This one has a potential adopter just wanting to give him a good home once the courts complete their case and the shelter is free to release these dogs to a new life.

"Bruce" rottweiler mix
5 yrs   male

75 pounds and a nice dog and...he has heartworms. Bobtail and nice rott markings. Fine with other dogs and did not appear to have any interest in cats. Great temperament!!!

" Edgar "
3 months   M

Edgar is a sweet little short hair kitty and ready to move into your home ! Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or sueann60@hotmail.com

"Turk" shepherd/akita mix
3-4 yrs   Neutered male

IN FOSTER: Turk, a 3-4 yr old male shepherd/akita mix, has tremendous ball drive and will stay focused whenever a ball is in sight. Appears to be deaf which may be why he looks at you so attentively. Smart as can be. Tested with other dogs and is fine with them. Would be good with another dog since he loves to play with them. Good with people too. Best in an adult household. About 78# Hope someone is willing to give this boy a chance! Turk is being obedience trained to hand signals and learning fast! IS LEARNING TO BE A HOUSEDOG!!! You need to see this boy in person.
