Gene's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Gene's Story...
Gene is a 7 year old male Rat Terrier. He is neutered, microchipped and is current on vaccinations.
Gene was found in an abandoned home with 30 other dogs. The poor dogs were living in a horrible situation and were forced to eat another dog to stay alive. Gene is understandably very traumatized by his past life and has anxiety issues around other dogs. He is extremely scared when other dogs bark and will not eat if another dog is nearby. For this reason he would do best in a home without other dogs and also needs a quiet home with someone who is willing to work with this special boy to help get him over his fears.
Gene is timid but is learning to trust. A gentle approach and some yummy treats definitely help and he is extremely gentle when taking treats. He has a sweet personality underneath his scared exterior.

UPDATE:
Gene has been in foster care for the last four months in a home with an older couple with other dogs & cats. He has been getting along well with the other pets in the home. He is still on the shy side and will take a while to warm up to new people, but after a few weeks learns to trust those around him.
If you are interested in more information about Gene please contact us at 651-388-5286.

Adoption fee is negotiable to the right home.

Our Adoption Process...

If you’re interested in adoption, here’s how in 5 simple steps…

1. Think about your lifestyle and what you would like in a pet. Then visit the Humane Society and get to know our animals to see if one would be a good match for you.

2. Once you have selected the right pet, complete the Adoption Application. It takes a minimum of 30 minutes for us to process an adoption application, so applications should be turned in before 4:30 pm. We will need to verify the information on your application and discuss the animal with you in order to approve the application. In some cases it may take us a few days to verify your information. We reserve the right to deny any adoption for any reason.

3. Once your application has been approved, we will give you copies of the animal’s information including vaccination and any other veterinary history.

4. The adoption fee is due at this time. We accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.

5. Take your new pet home and enjoy the love!
