I am Solomon. I am a large white adult, approximately 5 y/o, male Boxer mix. I am deaf. I have had a very difficult life, having been shuffled in and out of the shelter and a bad home situation before coming to SWVAL. I am a sweet boy and I get along well with adults, however I become frightened and anxious around other dogs and I may react protectively. I do tend to kennel guard. I am best as an only pet in a home with an experienced adopter who knows or is willing to learn hand signals to communicate with me. I love toys.
The adoption fee for dogs is $125 and that includes:
• veterinarian examination
• current vaccines
• current flea, intestinal parasite, and heartworm prevention
• a microchip for identification if ever lost or stolen
• current heartworm test
Since we do not have a physical location our pets are in foster homes, some as far as 2 hours from Princeton, where we are based and do our adoptions. Therefore we require an approved adoption application in order to meet a pet.* This will also allow immediate possession of a pet if, at the meeting, it's decided the pet is a match. *submitting an application does not obligate one to adopt but a meeting will only be arranged for serious applicants.
In order to adopt, fill out the adoption application from our website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you an application!
Initial contact is by email only as we do not have a phone dedicated to our organization and must use our personal phones for calls.

You'll receive a copy, too, at to help you keep track of which pets you've inquired about, and which shelters and rescues you've emailed.
NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures, on the pet's details page on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
