FOUND ON ZORA AND MAIN Kay is a 3 to 5-year-old black and tan coonhound. This girl is petite and affectionate, but a little unsure about being here in the shelter. She is friendly, but hesitant. She does walk nice on a leash, and is food motivated. She does not seem to respond to any commands. She was well behaved during physical exam, and completely enjoyed all the attention. She will hang out with you as long as you pet her! She is interested and curious about meeting new people. We think Kay would do best in a home with a family that is willing to do some training, and help her overcome the little bit of shyness that she has. We think that she would do fine with children, as long as they are respectful to her.

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.
