Facts about Jericho

Jericho entered the Ahimsa House program in February 2016 with his fursister, Molly. These beautiful pitties, through no fault of their own, were unable to reclaimed through our program. We are now seeking new homes for this duo where things aren't so scary.

Jericho initially comes off as very timid and shy in new situations. He has even hidden in the backseat while in the car with a transporter. This handsome boy is not aggressive at all and simply needs a little time and love to warm up. Once he knows you're not going to hurt him he is the sweetest boy! He is very affectionate and loves toys and treats. Jericho gets along well with other dogs and loves to play and be part of a pack. We think that Jericho would do great in a home where he is with other dogs who can bring out his playful side and show him how to be more confident. Jericho would benefit from a patient, loving family who can provide a safe, stable home for this sensitive boy. Jericho should not be in a home with cats.

Jericho is currently in a foster home where he loves being spoiled, hanging out getting loved on, and going for walks!

Jericho is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, and heartworm-negative after undergoing treatment for heartworms while with Ahimsa House. If you are interested in learning more about Jericho or getting the adoption process started, please email Sarah at sarah@ahimsahouse.org. Thank you!

About Ahimsa House

About Our Rescue Group...

In families affected by domestic violence, pets are also at risk. Abusers threaten, injure, and kill family pets to terrorize others in the home--yet most domestic violence shelters are unable to allow pets to accompany their owners to safety. Nearly 50% of individuals delay escaping the abuse because of concern about their pets. Ahimsa House provides emergency pet safehousing, veterinary care, pet-related safety planning, legal advocacy, a 24-hour crisis line, outreach programs, and other services to help the human and animal victims of domestic violence across Georgia reach safety together. When it is not possible for the animal and his or her owner to be reunited, we look for loving adoptive homes for the pets.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an adoption application and interview process for all prospective adopters. We charge a $125 adoption fee for dogs and $90 adoption fee for cats.
