My story

Leia may look intimidating, but she is such a sweet and loving girl. Leia would do best in a home with older children, and people who understand boundaries. Leia does well with older or calmer dogs. She is a resource guarder, so she needs a person who understands this. Leia is leash trained and potty trained. She is a huge couch potato and would love someone to snuggle with. She does love her treats, but it wouldn’t hurt to not give her any LEIA has been at the shelter for 5 YEARS!!! 5 YEARS!! When will she get a family and a shot at a forever home!Please visit our website, www.colonialcapitalhs.org to fill out an application today!

Additional adoption info

The adoption application is located on our website. Home visits will be made and vet references must be provided. There is an adoption fee on all animals that helps to offset the cost of veterinary care and spay/neuter of the animal. The basic adoption fee is $135 for cats and $215 for dogs. This fee may vary depending on the pet. Please contact adoptions@colonialcapitalhs.org for more information.
