Spunky was found in the receiving pen when staff arrived at the shelter one morning. He is a cute lil lab mix who is about 1 year old and weighs 26 lbs. He is fully grown, so he is probably mixed with min pin or something small! Spunky adores people and would be great with kids (he does need some training to teach him manners!) He acts like a stinker with other dogs and cats so he would do well as an only pet, or in an experienced home that can teach him how to behave! He is a very loving little guy who would be a great addition to a home that will exercise him and teach him proper doggie manners. Spunky is up to date on vaccines and will be neutered before joining his forever family.

UPDATE: 8/30/16 Spunky has been neutered and has been selected to join the Rockville Correctional Facility ADOPT program to learn basic obedience, social skills and housetraining. He is expected to graduate in late November and is available for adoption reservation through the shelter. His adoption fee is $150.

Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for dogs over 4 months is $120.00.

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption application must be completed prior to adoption. This application may be completed at our facility, or it can be downloaded by visiting our web site www.pvchs.cfsites.org and choosing the "Applications and Fees" link. Once the application has been completed, it can be emailed to us at pvchs@joink.com. The usual adoption fee is $50.00 for kittens less than 1 year of age, $25.00 for cats over 1 year of age, $140.00 for puppies 8 weeks to 4 months of age, and $120.00 for dogs over 4 months of age.

All Dog/Puppy adoptions include vaccines, spay/neuter, microchip, adopter bag of food and treats, adoption counseling by phone or email, and a free health exam or first office call at a (local) participating veterinarian. All Cat/Kitten adoptions include vaccines, spay/neuter, adopter bag of food, adoption counseling by phone or email, and free health exam or first office call at a (local) participating veterinarian. Microchipping for cats/kittens is available for an additional $15 with any adoption.

Fees are reduced for some long term residents and senior pets (generally dogs over 7 years old). The reduced adoption fees range from $10.00 to $50.00.

Our policy is that all pets must be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter. Fees may vary depending on the particular animal and the situation surrounding that animal.

We do not ship animals to adopters. Adopters are encouraged to bring all family members to help meet and select their new pet. Adopters complete an adoption application form and provide their veterinarian and landlord's phone number(s) for a reference.
