Story
Meet Jacks! This guy is an 84 pound husky/bully breed mix. Jacks is approximately 7 years old. Jacks is an older gentleman, he is pretty laid back & very sweet! He is dog selective so a meet and greet would be required if you have other dogs in the home. He ignored our shelter cats when tested with them so we believe he is cat friendly but always recommend supervising new dogs closely with your cats. Jacks seems to have sensitive skin. Jacks is neutered, 4DX tested (Lyme positive & being treated) & up to date on his vaccines! If interested please apply at the link below or stop by to pick up a paper application. http://www.hshcwv.org/adopt.html

Story
is looking for a home as the only pet since he is not dog nor cat friendly. He always loves to have a toy in his mouth a majority of time! This big goofball needs an active home with a fenced in yard or someone who is willing to exercise him as he is an active boy. Hugo is a rottie/boxer mix (our best guess). He is UTD on vaccines, he is neutered, is microchipped. He was lyme postive, but has been treated. He is 5 years old and weighs in at 60 lbs. $125 to adopt. Apply at hshcwv.org/adopt.html
