I am up to date with shots and good with cats.
He's not called Tuffy for nothing! This cute little guy's bark and attitude make up for his small size. :) However, he's responding well to his special shelter human's socialization. He'll take a treat that's handed to him and has actually jumped into her harms for cuddling. He and the office cats get along, too. He's not yappy, but will let you know when a stranger is around. His long legs may indicate some deer chihuahua in the mix. His tail has a semi-curl. He will be neutered upon or before adoption. Besides standard shots, shelter dogs are de-wormed and vaccinated for bordatella. The adopter must have adequate arrangements for the pet's exercise and safety.
We are caring and committed to HSCC missions: To aid and protect stray, abandoned, abused and neglected animals–including but not limited to rescue, rehabilitation, spaying and neutering, shelter and foster care, adoption. To aid in spaying and neutering companion animals–including but not limited to financial assistance for low-income owners.
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!
