Pets of the Week - August 2, 2017

August 2, 2017 GMT


has been at the shelter for almost 2 months. He is starting to think that there is no home out there for him. He is a lap dog at heart, and craves love and attention. He is a smart, 2-year-old boy and already knows “sit” and “shake.” He likes to go for walks, but does need more training to learn how to walk on leash, especially since he is a strong 70 lbs. He is good with kids. He generally gets along with other dogs, but must meet any other dogs that will be in his family. His new family shouldn’t have any cats or other small animals. He is a chocolate-colored pit bull terrier, who is neutered and whose vaccinations are up-to-date. His adoption fee is $45.

She is a black and white tuxedo cat. Her adoption fee is $25, plus the cost of her spay and rabies vaccination. She, and all cats at the shelter, are currently $45 off their adoption fees courtesy of the Jefferson County Humane Society.
