#2017-410 Kennel 34 Ace Young Adult Male LONG-TIMER!  Has been at the shelter since August. Weighs 43lbs.  Ace appears to be selective with other dogs. It has s truly hard to tell his energy level as he has spent over three months at the shelter in a kennel for the majority of that time.

 Kennel 4, ID 2017-502 Nicholas Adult Male -  Surrendered to the shelter. Nicholas has some missing hair on an area next to his tail.

Cage 3, ID 2017-456 Black and White Cat - LONG TIMER! This cat was surrendered by the owner who lived in FL and survived the storms and moved to KY with their two adult cats. Has the longest whiskers that I have ever seen. Very Loving.

 ID 2017-482 Kennel 12 Princess Young Adult Female - Princess arrived on October 4. She weighs 22lbs. and was picked up as a stray. Princess is very scared being at the shelter.
 Orville Small Older Adult Male - POSSIBLY HAS RESCUE...HAS SKIN ALLERGIES AND A CORNEA ISSUE! Orville arrived at the shelter after biting a 12 year old girl. There were no details in regard to the bite. Orville was removed from the shelter, neutered, and received medical care for his eyes. Orville was in foster for two months in hopes that a rescue would step up while he healed. Sadly no rescue stepped up for Orville so he was sent back to the shelter because the foster made a deal with the shelter staff that she could pull those in need of medical care and return them if she was unable to find them an appropriate rescue. Orville is 8 years of age and has a cornea issue. Orville also appears to have allergies due to his skin issues. Orville is 18 pounds and received his vaccinations. While in foster while he healed, Orville was pee pad trained in case he couldn't wait until his foster arrived home from worker. However, most of the time he would wait to go outside. Orville would need an adopter/rescue that understands how scared an animal is when they have some eye sight issues.

Kennel 36,  ID 2017-3  Hall German Shepherd Dog Adult Female - LONG TIMER! AT SHELTER 9 MONTHS! Hali is afraid of humans and will need an adopter/rescue that is familiar with this breed and familiar with working with a larger dog that is afraid of humans. Update: Hali is a young adult female and weighs around 70 pounds. We have been working with Hali and she is making great progress from how she acted when she first arrived. Has issues, so needs experienced  foster/adopter/rescue.

Gypsy Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Female EUTH LIST! COURT CASE! RESCUE ONLY! MUST HAVE RESCUE BY MON NOV 13th! HAS $325 in PLEDGES! 2 years old. I'm the most beautiful girl at the shelter! My fur has a mix of grey, white, orange, and brown, just like the autumn season! My favorite thing to do is to run and play and get loved on by my favorite human volunteers! While I'm a good girl, I'm not a fan of kitty cats. I like being the only girl, so I'll need a home with just other boy dogs. Because of all of my spunk, I'll need to be with older kids (I might accidentally knock small children over)! Don't you love me already?! Please rescue me! NO CATS!

Gonzo Pit Bull Terrier/Siberian Husky Large Adult Male EUTH LIST! RESCUE ONLY! HW+  MUST HAVE RESCUE BY MON NOV 13th! HAS $600 in PLEDGES! 2 years old. Gonzo was picked up as a stray after he was found roaming the streets with another dog. The poor guy seems so defeated and out of sorts here at the shelter. Crazy wild boy who likes to play with human friends. Good with other dogs, but no cats.

Boomer Hound Mix Large SENIOR Male BEYOND URGENT! HAS EYE PROBLEM,  TUMOR & HW+  - DONATIONS/RESCUE NEEDED! Boomer doesn't have time for pleasantries. He needs a committed rescue ASAP! This older boy has led a life of neglect. We believe he was an outside dog, possibly life on a chain, or in a 10x10 dog pen. Although he is of excellent weight and appears to have been cared for at one point- he has a very large tumor on his shoulder, an eye which is bulging grotesquely from his skull, causing him constant pain and headache (the pain is being managed with meds now!), and - he is heartworm positive. Whatever his life before - it did not appear to include regular vet care. Boomer is a GREAT dog. For all the discomfort he has lived with, he's all wags and wiggles. He LOVES people. He CRAVES attention. He LOVES LOVES LOVES butt scratches! This boy deserves a life of comfort, of love - and free from pain. Boomer needs the eye removed sooner rather than later, the tumor removed and sent for pathology, his heartworms treated - and lots and lots of love! We are desperate to give this guy the life he has earned. Donations are being solicited.

 MONTY Pit Bull Terrier Adult Male EXTREMELY URGENT! BACK AT SHELTER DUE TO LACK OF TRAINING! ABOUT 1 TO 2 YEARS OLD, 60lbs. BEAUTIFUL COLORS. VERY STRONG BOY. MONTY IS A YOUNG PIT THAT NEEDS STURCTURE AND DAILY TRAINING. PLEASE SHARE MONTY HE IS IN DANGER!!  What we do know about this sweet boy is that he LOVES walks, and running and playing; Monty would make the absolute best companion for an active individual and/or family.

  Molly Shepherd/Mastiff Mix Large Young Female - EXTREMELY URGENT! RESCUE ONLY HW+ & NEEDS FHO!  Molly was found running loose with no owner. No one has been in to look for her. She appears to be a very young girl, maybe 10-12 months old. She is a larger girl at 67 pounds and probably needs to gain another 15 pounds. She was limping so xrays were done and she has a fractured pelvis and a dislocated hip. She will most likely need a FHO surgery to remove the femur head to make her more comfortable. She is a very sweet and well mannered girl. She unfortunately is also heartworm positive. This girl can't take another strike against her. She has a strong will to live and give love to everyone around her.
Zeus Mastiff/Great Dane Mix Extra Large Adult Male - RESCUE ONLY! We believe he is a Mastiff mix and he weighs over 100 lbs. We are estimating him to be approximately 2 years old. He is a big sweet giant boy!

Luna Domestic Short Hair Black with White Medium BABY Female -

Zeus Lab Mix Large Adult Male - HAS SKIN ISSUES!

Sassy Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Female URGENT! TREATED FOR HW! Sassy came in with her siblings when their owner lost their home. Sassy is 3 years old, spayed, enjoys running, sun bathing and playing with other dogs. When she came into the shelter, it was discovered that she was heartworm positive but she has been treated and is fine now. Tragically, she and her siblings have been in the shelter since August and have been proven to be hard to place dogs only because of their breed and length of time they have been in the shelter. In general, dogs who spend months "behind bars" become different and it can take some training and settling in time for them to adjust to a loving home once again.

Chance Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Male URGENT! TREATED FOR HW! Chance came into the shelter along with his brother and sister. Their owner lost their home and had no choice but to surrender them. They were already fixed but Chance was heartworm positive - he has been treated thanks to generous donations! Chance and his siblings have been at the shelter since AUGUST and we are losing hope that we will be able to find them a home. He is shutting down a bit from living in a shelter and needs volunteers to spend time with him and of course, an understanding adopter who will be patient and know that he may need some time to adjust and settle in. Chance is good with other dogs and is about 3 years old.
Shadow Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Male URGENT!  Shadow is a 3 year old boy who was surrendered when his owner lost their home. He is neutered, heartworm negative and has lived with 2 other dogs. Shadow has been at the shelter since August and this is not a good sign. Dogs who stay at the shelter for such a long time often don't get the chance to find a new home due to space issues at the shelter. He will need time to settle in and learn to be loved again if given the chance at a new life. He won't have much time as during the fall and winter months, adoptions slow down and he can't live in a kennel forever. Volunteers are welcome to help him get out of his kennel more and take walks that can help enrich his life while he is stuck in the shelter. 

 Brock Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Male - NO EARS…THEY HAVE BEEN CROPPED OFF…SAD -

Sky Pit Bull Terrier/Dogue de Bordeaux Large Adult Male - 

 Asher Beagle Small Adult Male URGENT! NEEDS SURGERY ON FOOT! Asher was hit by a car, and suffered a severe break to his foot. He will need surgery to repair the injuries! We are desperate to find a rescue for this sweet older beagle - who is heartworm NEGATIVE!

Angel Boston Terrier/Boxer Mix Medium Adult Female -
Posie Domestic Short Hair Small Young Female -

BOO BOO & SHILOH SENIOR SIBLINGS URGENT! These two 12 year old golden girls, Shiloh and Boo Boo, need a home or rescue ASAP. Seniors do not do well in shelters ever. These two girls have been inside only cats their whole lives and the stress of being in a cage and around other animals at the shelter will cause them to deteriorate and most likely die from illness. They do not like dogs at all but should adjust in a home with another cat. They are super friendly and loving. Both are spayed. &

 Snuggles German Shepherd Dog Mix Medium Adult Female - About 2 years old, 45 pounds. Snuggles is a spunky, medium size, young girl waiting for you to take her home!

She is very friendly and outgoing, ready to give affection with the first pet.  This girl is quite the people pleaser and seems like she will be fun to train. She enjoys playing tug, squeaky toys and going for walks
