OWNER SURRENDER DUE TO NOT DOING GOOD WITH FARM ANIMALS. Sparky is a handsome 3 to 5-year-old shepherd mix. This guy is pretty well behaved, walks nice on leash and is well mattered. He will sit for treats. He is affectionate and likes to pay attention to you and hug you, but he is not overwhelming or obnoxious. He seems to like to play with toys. He does well with most other dogs. He was curious but not reactive to cats. He is food motivated. We think this guy will be a pretty simple fit into most homes looking to add a new dog without needing to do tons of training. We think he will do just fine with children as long as they are respectful to him. RETURN ADOPTION DUE TO THE ADOPTER LEAVING HIM WITH SOMEONE ELSE AND THEY DIDNT WANT HIM EITHER. SADLY THIS IS SPARKYS 3RD TIME BEING HERE IN LESS THEN A YEAR I AM SPONSORED!!! THANK YOU BRENDA LEFEVERS FOR SPONSORING MY ADOPTION IM A VINTAGE DOG!! VINTAGE DOGS are available for adoption to approved homes fee waived!

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.
