LEFT IN JHS PLAY YARDS River is a handsome and active 1 to 3-year-old chocolate lab mix. This good-looking guy seems to do well with most other dogs, and was not interested in or reactive to cats, although we always advise caution with introductions. River walks pretty nice, but does pull a bit. He will sit for treats, and he is very food motivated. River is heartworm positive, so we will be either seeking funds to treat him, or looking for an adopter or rescue to take him and treat his condition. We think the River would be a good fit for homes looking for an energetic dog. They should be prepared to do some basic training and provide adequate exercise to keep this busy boy engaged. We think that river would do best in a home with children ages eight years of age and over.

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.
