When I asked our vet how old he thought Hank was, his answer was old. And that Hank is. He is also blind, has arthritis, can be grumpy if he senses someone near his food (he barks or growls but never follows through) or when his bumped into one too many times by the youngsters playing in the office. He is housetrained if he is let at regular intervals. He is always at the door when someone visits, not because he can't wait to greet them, he is hoping to sneak out the door. He is afraid of thunderstorms, shaking and roaming around the room trying to find a safe place. He can always manage to be in the way when we clean the office and to stand in what we have swept up. All that being said, Hank is a sweet old man who deserves to spend his golden years in a loving home. If you can find it in your heart to adopt an old, gentle soul, his adoption fee is $50.00. Hank is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and is on heartworm preventive.
The Jay County Humane Society is a small, non-profit, limited-admissions shelter committed to finding good homes for stray, abandoned, mis-treated and unwanted animals, and also promoting spaying and neutering of companion pets.
