Wilson is a senior pitbull hound mix. We think that he is about 5 to 8 years old. He currently has some lameness issues which we will have evaluated by our veterinarian this week. Wilson walks nice on leash and was well mannered during physical exam. He was not overly food motivated, nor does he seem to know any commands at this time. He was not interested in toys. He is not at all over you kind of dog, he is content to go find a spot and lie down quietly. You go share his kennel with another dog here with no issues, although they do not engage together very much. He was not interested in a reactive to cats at this time, but as always, we advise caution. Wilson will need a quiet home where he can chill on the couch or a soft dog bed and watch some TV. He would probably do best in a home with children 10 years of age and older. Additional placement recommendations may be made based on his veterinary exam.

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.
