JJ is a very nice and well mannered 3 to 5-year-old pitbull. This girl wants nothing more than to be very close to you. She will lay her head in your lap and just stand next to you so that you can pet her. She walks nice on a leash and was well behaved during physical exam. She thoroughly enjoyed the attention. JJ is food motivated and will sit for treats. She was not overly interested in toys at this time. JJ seems to do well with most other dogs, and was curious but seemed afraid of cats. We always recommend caution when introducing dogs to kitties in the home. We think the JJ should be a simple fit into any home looking to adopt a sweet new pittie. We think that she will do great with children as long as they are respectful to her. For more information on this dog or any others in our shelter, please visit www.joplinhumane.org.

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.

Rules:
- 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.
