FOUND ON W2ND AND PEARL Tony is a very sweet two to four year old lab mix. He arrived very thin, and has been battling a tough case of kennel cough. He has some pretty rough skin, very dry and flaky, but oh my goodness what a nice boy. This guy is finally starting to get over his kennel cough and is really blossoming. He walks really nice on leash, and is very affectionate. He wants to be close to you. He loved the attention during his physical exam. He seems to get along well with other dogs, and ignored the kitties. He is moderately food motivated, but was not interested in toys at this time. He does not seem to know any commands. Tony seems to of had a pretty rough life so far, and is hoping to be chosen by an amazing family to live. We think that he would do well in homes prepared to do some training, and think he would do well with children as long as they are respectful to him. I AM SPONSORED!!!

Our Adoption Process...

We believe in an open, non-judgmental adoption process. We recognize that no one is perfect and try to match a person's pet expectations so fewer pets are returned. Under normal conditions the process is:

- Come in with your family and look around. If you see a pet that you like, ask staff to meet the pet (if the pet is available to be taken out)
- Complete the adoption questionnaire.
- After the meeting, go over what information we have on file about the pet and his/her past experience.
- Finish the process by having a conversation with our adoption staff.
- After the above is completed, we can put a hold on a pet for 24 hours if you need time to think about the decision or to prepare your home.
- Most of our pets can go home the same day.

Adoption fees are: $90 - $140
This includes the animals spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations including rabies, de-worming and micro-chip.

- We will not adopt a pet to anyone under the age of 18
- We will not adopt to anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- We reserve the right not to place a pet in a home based on the information we have or if we feel the pet is not a match for the person's lifestyle.

JHS does reduce or waive adoption fees for a variety of reasons: Too many cats or kittens in the building, older and special needs pets that have a harder time finding homes, etc. Adoption Promotions are a fun way to engage the public and bring in potential adopters. Shelters remain the #4 way people obtain their pets.
