AMOS. OWNER TURN IN. NO STRAY HOLD. This gentle old soul was turned in by his owner. Poor sweet guy. He is scared but was very gentle with me while we were out in the yard. He looks like he's been outside his whole life, probably on a chain, as there was part of a chain attached to his collar. I suspect he is not as old as he looks, but that his outdoor life has been rough on his skin. I don't think his owner gave a name for him, so we named him Amos. Let's help Amos find a new wonderful life.

Our Adoption Process...

The fee for adopting a dog is $110.00, no matter the age or gender of the pet. This fee covers the cost of the animal to be spayed/neutered & vaccines: DA2PP, Bordatella, and Rabies. The adoption fee also covers a fecal exam for worms and a heart worm test!

The fee for cats is $110.00 covers spay/neuter, and age appropriate vaccines.

It is very important that you understand that you CANNOT take pets from the shelter and breed them. Most of the animals came in as strays, therefore, we do not have any background or genetic information on them. Breeding these pets would not be in their best interest nor yours. Also, a Law was just passed in Alabama which requires that EVERY animal, adopted from a shelter, MUST be spayed or neutered!!
