FOUND ON 24TH AND MAIDEN LN Petra is a happy and social eight months to one year old brindle and white shepherd mix. This girl is always so happy, she just can't stop wiggling. She has a good amount of energy, but walks nice on leash. She is very food motivated, and will sit for treats, although she has a hard time containing her excitement. She was well behaved and Wiggley during physical exam. She was not overly interested in toys, she would rather socialize with people. She does well with other dogs, but does not seem to be a fan of cats. We think that she would do well in most homes looking to add an energetic young dog. She will need regular exercise and some basic training with manners; she does like to jump up on people when she gets excited. We think that she will do fine with children, as long as they are respectful to her. She may be a little much for tiny ones, so six years and up would probably be best.

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.
