Elsie is an older gal who looks to have been bred many times.  She has been tested positive for thyroid.  She will need medication for the remainder of her life. She is a real love bug and just wants to please.  We are on a mission to help this poor girl find the loving, healthy, happy home she deserves.  We need to get a picture of her with her big, pink teddy bear.  She loves to carry it around with her and it's adorable.  It may be the first real thing she's had to call her own!  Does fine around young children.

Update March 4, 2014 - This is what her foster mom has to say about her:

Elsie is house trained, will bust out or destroy any kennel you put her in but luckily she is pretty well behaved in the house as long as there are no drawers or cabinet doors she can get into. Also will clear a kitchen counter really quick. Loves to chew up collars and leashes and an occasional coffee table book.  She does better if she has plenty of tennis balls to tear up during the day. She is very pushy and bossy with other dogs. If someone is in the spot she wants, she will sit on them till they move. Likes to hide all the toys under the cushion of the couch so she can come back and get them later. She does not start fights, just likes things her way. No cats or small critters of any kind. Gets along with other dogs. It's amazing they tolerate her behavior.' Well, that's pretty clear!

Our adoption fee is $130.00 and it helps to cover a portion of the dog's vetting costs. The adoption process includes the completion of an application followed by an interview.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please have a look at our available pups. If you see one you are interested in, contact us to set an appointment OR visit us at the Pet Food Center North on First Avenue in Evansville on Sunday between 11am and 4pm! Our shelter is a privately-owned kennel, therefore it is not open to the public. Viewing of dogs is by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process consists of an adoption application followed by an interview. Upon arriving at the shelter, each dog receives a Bordetella shot, DHPPC vaccination and worming. At the veterinarian's office, our dogs receive a rabies vaccination, a spay or neuter surgery, and are tested for heartworm. If a dog tests positive, we treat the dog and then retest to confirm that the treatment was successful. Additionally, our dogs are microchipped before going home with their new family. Adoption fees are $85 and help to cover the cost of vetting.
