My story

For more information, contact
Paco (A525815) is a 55 pound pittie mix who`s smart, athletic, outgoing, and friendly once he has a chance to meet new people. He likely wasn`t socialized when he was young but has made a ton of progress over the past few months, getting to experience new things to learn that they aren`t scary. He`s a great leash walker without distractions, however he gets a little too excited when he sees other dogs and isn`t allowed to meet and play with them. At HAS he has been great at helping other dogs come out of their shells and has been very welcoming to foster siblings. He prefers to run and wrestle with other dogs but will respect laid-back dogs if you set the boundaries for him.
At home, after having a chance to burn off steam, Paco`s a lap dog who likes to lounge around the house. He`s very food motivated and is a quick learner, knowing all basic commands and has started learning more advanced ones like `find it` and some basic agility. He loves to play with balls, bones, and tug toys, and he does best when he`s able to stretch his legs every few days so he`d like a home with a backyard to play in. He can be a little too much sometimes so he`ll do best in a family without young kids, but he`s ready to become someone`s oversized lap dog/foot warmer.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

If you are interested in adopting an animal: 1) Write down the Animal ID # . 2) Make sure to mention Animal ID # when visiting or calling. 3) Remember all adoptions stop 30 minutes prior to closing time. 3) You will not be allowed to place a hold on the animal. 4) It cannot be shipped to you. 5) Before adopting it, you can spend time with the animal outside or in a "meet and greet" room. Please ask for assistance. 6) We take cash, checks, debit cards, VISA and Mastercard as a method of payment. **IMPORTANT: Huntsville Animal Services cannot guarantee that any animal will still be available for adoption as we do not hold animals for anyone under any circumstances. Animals are adopted on a first come, first serve basis. You may want to call and ask if one is still available prior to visiting the shelter. When you adopt a pet, it will stay at the shelter and be taken to the veterinarian of your choice where it will be spayed or neutered before going to its new home. If it is already spayed or neutered, it can go home with you upon adoption. My adoption cost is very affordable and includes my adoption fee, spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, license (if you live within Huntsville city limits), and microchip.
Cats seven months and older are currently $35 that includes spay or neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, microchip, city license tag if applicable, feline AIDS/LEUKEMIA test, and may also include other basic vaccinations when applicable. Kittens six months and younger are $50.

Dogs seven months and older are currently $35 and includes spay or neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, microchip, city license tag if applicable, canine heart worm test over six months of age, and may also include other basic vaccinations when applicable. Puppie six months and younger are $50. Prices are subject to change.

$35 - Lifetime license not included in the adoption fee

Fees change if the animal comes into the shelter with proof of current rabies vaccination, current city license, and/or proof of spay/neuter. If the animal has been spayed or neutered there is no spay/neuter fee.
Adopting parties must have proof of identification. They must be 19 years of age or older. They must not be intoxicated. The adoption process takes approximately 30 minutes for the paperwork. Please allow ample time to look for the pet of your dreams, visit with it, and do all appropriate paperwork. We do not suggest adoptions for a gift. If you desire to give the gift of a new pet, bring that person with you and allow them to pick out their new family member.
