Amber, with beautiful amber eyes, is all ears for news of her permanent home! Rescued from under an abandoned car beside a busy highway, she was grateful and leashed easily. Starving, thirsty and very happy to see us, she nuzzled with us all the way to the vet's. Clinic employees remarked on how smart and sweet she is. Amber leash walks well. Her temperament is much like a border collie - kind, gentle, playful with people and other dogs of similar size. Her right front paw is misshaped a bit, but she gets around fine. She was probably born in 2009 and her optimal weight is about 40 lbs. She will make a family a wonderful pet!

Come Meet Our Pets...
We show shelter animals on Saturdays from 10:00 to noon, and weekday evenings by appointment. We show foster animals by appointment at an agreed-upon time and place. Contact us by email or message phone. (Our answering machine is regularly checked. Leave your name, number and short message, speaking slowly & clearly.)
Our Adoption Process...
The process includes a conversation, one-page application, one-page contract, and very reasonable adoption fee.
We do our best to place pets in LOVING, RESPONSIBLE, mutually appropriate homes. Any prospective adopter must meet the animal first. We prefer adopting within "easy driving distance" of Tahlequah OK, but occasionally make an exception. We do not ship animals.
Dogs have shots and broadtail vaccine, and are spayed/neutered, heartworm checked and microchipped!
