Lady Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Female URGENT! HAS $350 SPONSORSHIP! Spayed! Lady was picked up as a stray the beginning of December, so we have no background info on her. What we can tell you is Lady lives up to her name; she's very gentle, very sweet, and well mannered. She loves people, is very playful, and is eager to please!

  Hope Labrador Retriever SENIOR Female URGENT! RESCUE NEEDED FOR THIS SWEET, SWEET SOUL! HEART WORM POSITIVE! 8 years old. She is not a stray after all... This old dog has had a HORRIBLE life, and she deserves a retirement home filled with love, comfort and the soft inside comforts of a loving home! We named her Hope immediately upon her arrival, because she DESERVES hope to fill her remaining years! Hope has had numerous litters of puppies, is covered, literally, head to toe with mange, her ears are so thick you can barely see her ear canal...even her muzzle is covered with thick, red, inflamed skin! (We have started her on antibiotics, medication for the mange, and pain meds. She also received a soothing spa treatment, which nearly put the old girl to sleep on her feet!). And to top it all off - she is a very high heartworm positive!
Catfish Pit Bull Terrier/English Bulldog Mix Large Young Male  RESCUED! Neutered. They renamed me Catfish because of my giant catfish head! I am a big goofy boy - I love kids and adults, but have never lived with other dogs or cats. I have always lived indoors and am completely housetrained - but will need a reminder period once you take me home! Type of home I'm looking for: An active home filled with love and LOTS of toys - regular daily walks would be amazing as well! I must meet any other dogs living in the home, and be sure to let my DCAC caretakers know if you have cats so they can cat test me! Unique things about me: Don't let my low-rider stature full you - I am A LOT of dog in a small body!

Ramona 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.

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 URGENT! LONG TIMER! NO FEES FOR APPROVED ADOPTER OR RESCUE!!! 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 - NO FEES FOR APPROVED ADOPTER OR RESCUE! 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 - 6 years old, 17lbs. INSIDE HOME ONLY! 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.

Malcolm Young Male - Malcolm is a young guy, one year or less. He has a VERY sweet temperament and seems to get along fine with other dogs. Malcolm seems like he will be easy to train because he likes to please people.

Buster Coonhound Adult Male - NO FEES FOR APPROVED ADOPTER OR RESCUE! 3 years old, 55lbs. Owner surrender. Buster was so excited to be outside and play we hated to make him sit for pictures so he has a lot of action shots. Buster enjoys playing with other dogs and is friendly with everyone he meets. He LOVES belly rubs and has no problem rolling over to make sure he gets plenty. He is fun to be around and to watch him just enjoy life.
