A little note about Allie from her foster family:

"Our 10 days with Allie have been a lot of fun. She made a lot of progress while staying with us. Her first night was a lot of howling and barking in her crate. That only lasted one night and now she happily goes in with a small treat as well as lays down in it to relax while we are home and have the crate door opened. She has been 100% potty trained but we used the crate as a precaution. Allie is not always easy to walk on a leash but mostly she puts her nose to the ground and wants to stand still to sniff. She has made progress with an enthusiastic "lets go" or clapping hands twice with a "lets go." We've had other dogs bark at Allie while walking, and she truly ignores them.

We've had a few foster dogs but Allie is the most entertaining when it comes to playing with her toys. She likes a box of toys to shift through and pick out different ones at different times. She does seem to have a need to chew, but aside from some paper grocery bags that she shredded, she seems to stick to her toys. We've also had a few visitors come over and she has greeted each stranger excitedly with a tail wagging and friendly excitement. She is normally calm indoors but certainly gets excited with a game of tug of war with her rope toy. Allie has truly been a joy to have as a foster."

Our Adoption Process...

We set our adoption fees based on differential pricing, meaning our fees vary and can range from "You Pick The Price" to $250. Most adult cats are "You Pick The Price" and hounds and pitbulls are $35. Fees include spaying or neutering, initial vaccines, deworming, microchip and registration, a free physical exam from an area veterinarian, and one month of free veterinary health insurance. We will also provide a starter bag of Science Diet pet food and a collar, leash and other supplies may be purchased at our Adopt & Shop Retail Store. All animals are spayed or neutered before leaving with adopters; usually you can take your new companion animal home the same day you visit the shelter, otherwise within 24-72 hrs.
