Rocky was turned over to the shelter due to no fault of his own he was and unwanted gift.  Rocky is very lovable and very playful, but he sometimes is scared of his own shadow!!
Douglas Pointer Mix Large Adult Male HW POSITIVE! NEEDS DONATIONS/RESCUE! Neutered. Crazy boy.  I am very outgoing and don't show well in my kennel due to my over-excitement at seeing new people. I will need consistent training to teach me my manners, and I am sadly, very high heartworm positive. Needs an active, playful home with lots of activities.
 Becky Pit Bull Terrier/Shepherd Mix Adult Female - AT SHELTER SINCE FEBRUARY! ADOPTION FEE WAIVED DURING MAY! Beautiful 19 month old Becky, a shepherd/ terrier mix lady has been jumping up & down in her kennel trying to get anyone & everyone to see her, and yet she is still stuck in there! Becky is still in her puppy stage, so she will need training to help her learn manners. This sweetie is super friendly, and extremely playful! She is a jumping bean, but totally ignores all cats. Becky is unfortunately starting to get stressed due to being stuck and bored in her kennel every day and is beyond ready for her turn to walk out of the shelter to a new home (or rescue!) for a second chance to play the day away! She gets along with other dogs, kids and cats!

Rocket Boxer/ Lab Mix Large Adult Male HAS BEEN TREATED FOR HEARTWORM!  2 years old. This playful guy loves to clown around and play with his humans, and soak up ALL THE ATTENTION! Rocket ended up at the shelter as a stray, and somehow no one came looking to reclaim this super fella! Rocket is a very good boy, has been tested with cats and seemed to do ok (with all animals, a slow introduction is always best!) Rocket has been with us for a while, and will need a little training as a refresher and to help him be the best dog he can be - but this dude is worth the little extra work!

James Hound Mix Medium Adult Male - 5 years old. Good with children, other dogs and other animals.

Ernie Pit Bull Terrier Mix Medium Young Male ADOPTED!   ERNIE is a young male (approx 9 months) We don't know much about Ernie, because he came in as a stray... Ernie has taught us a few things though - 1. He is good with other dogs. 2. He thinks cats are sketchy and would do best in a home without them. 3. Ernie LOVES to PLAY! Especially tug of war! Ernie is looking for his own personal teacher to "learn him some manners", preferably one with a comfy couch for naps... but mostly someone willing to take this boy for walks, jogs and let him play his little puppy heart out! Ernie is still very much a puppy, and needs to get out of the shelter soon...

 Buster Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large Adult Male - $40 ADOPTION FEE! BLACK BEAUTY!  I'm big boy with lots of strength! I love people and will knock you down accidentally in my excitement to give you kisses. I will need consistent training, regular walks and a strong owner to ensure I mature into a well socialized and well mannered dog. Type of home I'm looking for: An active home with no small children - ages 10 & up would be perfect for him though! I must meet any other dogs living in the home as well! I don't seem to like other dogs very much here at the shelter.

Quincy Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large Young Male -  I'm a beautiful, high energy dog who needs a home with daily jogs! I am very outgoing, very active, and have tons of extra energy I will need consistent training, daily walks and jogs, and lots of toys. Type of home I'm looking for: An active home, older children. I must meet any other dogs living in the home as well! I do get along with other dogs here.

Bandit Catahoula Leopard Dog/Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix Medium Adult Male - 4 years old. Due to his coon dog ancestors, he just may be the loudest dog in the shelter, but don’t let that shy you away from this great boy! Bandit is heartworm negative! Bandit doesn’t play much, he would much rather run and walk around, looking at the world through his gorgeous eyes. (Great dog to spend spring days with walking on the green belt!) Bandit may simply not have been shown how to play in his previous home - who’s knows what this boy can learn in the loving and fun home that has to be out there somewhere!

Mel Domestic Short Hair Calico Medium Adult Female ADOPTED!  6-8+ years old. Spayed. MEL is an older, laid back calico kitty who is looking for a calm, quiet home to call hers! She would do best in a home where she is the only resident queen (she doesn't particular dislike other cats, but she doesn't really like them either. She's just a moody, bossy old thing and she doesn't like to share her space or her humans!) And like all royalty, Mel wants to be pampered and catered to! Mel would prefer a home with no small children (older kids over the age of 10-12 would be fine though) and not a lot of commotion or noise! ...She may have a large list of "demands", but we promise - Mel is well worth it! This is one of the sweetest older cats you'll ever meet!

Jazz Domestic Short Hair SENIOR Female - Jazz is a beautifully marked female torbie that likes to do things her way ;that includes being petted and held when she wants. Her foster said she will do better in a home with no children as she plays too rough . She was found at the court house eating from the garbage can. She is a big, healthy cat that needs a patient person who will give her space.

Gidget Treeing Walker Coonhound/Bluetick Coonhound Mix Medium Young Female - 1 year old. HW Negative. Playful, loving, and active.  Gidget is a young girl that has lived most of her life walking from house to house begging for food. She's been alone outside in the cold and hasn't had a family to care for her and love her. Gidget is very happy to see people. She can be a little shy at first sometimes, but then she is ready for attention and treats. Gidget iwould be a great dog to adopt and give her something she's never known, but every dog deserves; LOVE.

 Lilly Dawn Beagle Mix Medium Adult Female - About 3 years old and 40lbs. Total sweetheart Lilly Dawn has won over our shelter director with her friendly personality! She has gotten along well with other dogs both at the shelter and her finder's home. The resident shelter cat seems to scare her. Lilly Dawn will be spayed and current on vaccinations prior to adoption. We're shocked this girl wasn't claimed, but now she can be yours!

SENIOR Female RESCUED! HAS RUPTURED INFECTED GROWTH ON NECK AND ARTHRITIS! 13 years old. Owner surrender. We are keeping her as comfortable as possible and she seems happy. She is currently being treated with antibiotics for the dermatitis around the ruptured infected growth on her neck and Carprophen for arthritis pain.

Skipper Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Adult Male URGENT! NO FEES FOR ADOPTER OR RESCUE! Skipper came into the shelter with both bones in his front left leg broken. He underwent surgery to repair the breaks, wore a pretty blue cast and is now healed! Skipper is an active guy, about 4-5 yrs. old, and he doesn't show his age. This handsome boy has a goofy side that makes everyone he meets him grin and chuckle with happiness. His enthusiasm for life is contagious and his carefree personality lights up every room he enters. He enjoys playing with stuffed toys and playing outside. He likes to play with other dogs; running and jumping with them is his favorite. He also really enjoys cuddling with people and getting attention and is ready to go on long hikes to enjoy the great outdoors with people who love him.  Skipper needs a home with dog savvy cats or no cats at all. He's ready to play and can occasionally get little carried away with chasing small animals because he knows they will be fun to play with if he can catch them. 

 Rebel Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Adult Male ADOPTED! Did everyone forget about me? I've been waiting so long! I need a family. Rebel is quite a social boy that enjoys spending time with his people relaxing and getting some attention. He loves to play with toys and go on rides. Rebel deserves to be spoiled! He was heart worm positive, but was treated July 20th. Rebel just wants a nice family to love all 75 pounds of him while he is resting and relaxing with them during the cold winter season. NO CATS OR SMALL CHILDREN!

Terry Treeing Walker Coonhound Large Young Male RESCUED! Terry is a calm, quiet, laid back boy who is unbelievably sweet. He wags his tail and just watches you from his kennel). This boy has such a sweet soul!  Terry is extremely skinny due to his past living conditions but will do so much better in a home where he can be fed multiple times a day and get some treats to help him gain weight. When Terry meets new dogs he has nice manners and just walks away to show he isn't interested in playing if dogs seem too hyper, etc. He gets excited and acts like he will chase the shelter cat; not aggressively, but he seems like he will definitely chase them. We suggest a home with cat savvy dogs, if any cats are in the same home. 

 Fezzy Foe Jack Russell Terrier/Rat Terrier Mix Small Adult Male ADOPTED! 6 years old, 17lbs. This little nugget is just ready to steal your heart! Festus (Fezzy Foe) is such a cuddler; carry him around and he is the happiest little guy you will meet. He seems to get along fine with other dogs and cats and of course anyone who will let him sit in their lap or share their pillow at night. This little guy will be so happy when he gets to go home with his new family. He desperately wants love (you can see him stick his little nose through the kennel to get love). The shelter is a scary place for a little guy like Festus and he's begging for someone to come adopt him soon.
