RJ spends 22 hours a day inside a run looking out at the world and waiting for the 2 hours of freedom in the play yards if weather is good. This has been his world for 2 1/2 years.
RJ is a charismatic speckled ear boy who loves, loves, loves people. He does NOT like cats. Though he has had some dog friends, there have been others which he openly disliked and we have great hopes that when he is out of the shelter environment, that he will again feel relaxed enough to have dog friends. However we will not adopt him into a home with dogs. RJ loves to give kisses and to take long walks. He is a smallish medium sized boy. RJ had the good fortune to be pulled from Animal Control before being put on the euthanasia list in Dec 2014 .
Adoption of all dogs/cats requires an approval process to ensure that they are going into a home appropriate for their needs and that will keep them safe. Each is loved and nurtured by our staff and volunteers during their stay with us and each is placed with same due diligence that they would be given if they were our own furry family members.
The approval process can take from 1 to 3 days. That process is initiated with the online (or in office) submission of the application form. Adoption policies, application procedures and the online application forms are at the shelter website: http://smithgallhumanesociety.org/ under tab All Adoptable Animals. All approved adopters must accompany their new family member on the journey home. We do not ship nor transport.
