FOUND AT MORES PARK William is a pretty adorable medium size shepherd mix. We think that he is about 6 to 8 years old. His coat is a little rough, and he has a couple broken teeth. It seems that William has not had the easiest life. William is happy to meet new people, and walks nice on leash. This guy loves attention, and is food motivated. He will sit for treats. Where you was well behaved during physical exam and love the attention. He seems to do well with most other dogs, and was not interested in or reactive to cats at this time. William should be a simple fit into most homes looking to adopt as long as the new family is willing to help them adapt to his new life. We think that we would be best suited for a home with children eight years of age and older. For more information on this dog for any others, please visit www.joplinhumane.org. We are the Joplin Humane Society in Joplin, Missouri. 417–623–3642. I AM SPONSORED! THANK YOU TO CATHERINE ECK FOR SPONSORING MY ADOPTION!

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.
