Hi my name is Sophie and I'm about 1 year old! I'm a black and tan coonhound,  just like Flash! No we are not related but we definitely have the same markings! I don't mind some of the dogs here but I am definitely a dominant female! I don't like the cats here at the shelter and they are everywhere! Just ran into a giant that is supposedly a horse! Let's just say it was enormous but I wasn't backing down! I was barking and had my hair standing up! The lady just laughed at me and said let's go, we was walking! I thought that thing was gonna eat us! The ladies say I'm extremely active and would do great with a fenced in yard or with an active person!  I was never taught manners so if you have patients and willing to teach me I would be the best dog ever! If your interested in adopting me please email the ladies at and ask for an application.

About Hampshire County Animal Control

About Our Shelter...

We are an ANIMAL CONTROL Facility, also known as the "pound". We rescue dogs from cruel situations and prosecute the dogs owners for the unfair treatment or neglect of the the animals. We find a majority of our dogs as strays and try to get to know them the best we can so we can post them on this site for you to read and consider these wonderful animals for your forever pet!

Our adoption process is designed to identify the RIGHT PET for each adopter. All potential adopters must fill out an application which will be reviewed by the Adoption Manager. We try to make the adoption process easy, clear, and pleasant. We ask questions about how the pet will be housed, the kind of environment the pet will be in, what type of activities you expect to do with the pet, who the family members are, and what your expectations for the pet might be. These questions are not meant to be invasive but rather to help us determine if the pet will fit into your family so the adoption will be a permanent one.

When possible, Shelter volunteers and staff evaluate each animal through regular interaction at the shelter or in foster care. This interaction gives us a better understanding of the animal’s reaction to new situations and people thus allowing us to tell the potential adopter as much as possible about the animal. We can also advise the adopter if a specific animal will be suitable for the adopter’s family.

Animals are social creatures who thrive when they are treated as part of the adopting family and they should have access to the same indoor living quarters as their caretakers. We will not place a dog in a home where the dog would be tied out or kenneled in a small space most of the time.

We are more than happy to work with RESCUES to find placements for our great animals. All dogs are vaccinated - DHLPP - and dewormed immediately upon intake unless unable due to illness or injury. In these instances they are provided vet care (when possible) or quarantine until they are healthy enough to be vaccinated. Rabies appointments are set up monthly, health certificates are provided when necessary for transports to other shelters when notified in a timely manner. Puppies are quarantined for one week after arrival/vaccination before being posted for adoption availability and are usually placed in foster care immediately.
