We do not have a facility to house the dogs in our program. They are all kept in foster homes until they are adopted. Therefore, if you are interested in adopting from CCHS, you have to complete an online application at http://www.collincountyhumanesociety.org/adoption-application.html and we will contact you asap about the status of your application.
How do you do?! My name is Melly. I was picked up from Lancaster shelter after being taken in as a stray and my family decided never to come reclaim me. I'm around a year and a half old, 45 lbs, already spayed and microchipped. My foster mom saw my beautiful face and sweet disposition and couldn't resist giving me a place to stay while I look for my forever home. I can be little shy, but I definitely bond to my person quickly and just want to be with them. I am very affectionate and love to give kisses. And I even sit like a champion for my dinner and for treats, not to mention go right into my crate when I'm told. Please just let me go where you go and I'd be the happiest girl you ever saw!
Melly is currently in a house with 2 large resident dogs and has been getting along very well, though she would likely be just fine as an only dog too. She is house-trained and crate-trained. Melly is current on all vaccinations and HW negative and is on HW preventatives.
Melly is the biggest love, which is truly amazing considering the vet found what appears to be remnants of a bullet or bb in her left hip. She goes for walks, plays and definitely doesn't let it slow her down. The vet said that it is healing on its own and since she's young, there likely won't be any further issues. This girl truly deserves a forever family all her own! Could that be you??
