Shyla here! I am a 7-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix. I'm a very active and adventurous girl! I absolutely LOVE playing in the backyard and going on lots of walks. Laying in the sunshine is my favorite place to be! A backyard would be a huge bonus for me in my future home. I would love to be your one and only baby so I can receive all your attention! I promise I have lots of love to give. I enjoy my pals here at the Humane Society, but I am so ready for my forever home! Can you help me find one? People walk by my kennel every day but don't give me a chance... please meet me outside my kennel, and you'll see I'm a good girl with a a huge heart!

Victor's dream home is one where he can be your one and only fur baby so he can soak up all your attention. He would do well in a home with children ages 12 and up.

Dino is a handsome 8-year-old Pit Bull mix that has been with us since May 2022. He came from Animal Control where his time was up and he was going to be put down - we couldn't let that happen. Dino is looking for an active home to call his own! He is such a good boy and has become a staff favorite over the past year. His perfect home would have no other pets or kids, as he wants to soak up all of your attention. A backyard to run around in would be a big bonus!

Howdy I am Woody I am a pit mix male around 2-4 yrs old and 57 lbs. I found my self here at the pound with two of my friends.

I also could learn some basic training and walking on leash, once I earn your trust and learn new things I will be your best friend. Come meet me and my friends. We do not have to be adopted together. ##1851872##

Story
Hi!! Apollo here. I'm a big, sweet, loving baby! I am told I am also a bit goofy. I think that makes me extra special. I love attention, treats and being around my people. I can be a little shy at first, but once I know you, I will love you unconditionally and always. The staff says I am "connected at the hip." I just want them to know I love them. When asked to sit, I do it excitedly. I am still trying to figure out leash walking, but I am great in a kennel overnight and I am potty-trained. I would do best in a house with no children.  I am looking for a family to call my own. Will you come meet me? I can't wait to meet you. If you're interested in adopting me, fill out an adoption application online at www.polkcountyhumanesociety.org/adopt where you will also find a link to request an appointment to meet me. Some pets are in foster homes or may already have an appointment scheduled, so the appointment is important to make sure I will be available to meet you when you come. Polk County Humane Society is located in Bolivar, Missouri, but also makes transports to the Denver, CO, Des Moines, IA and Minneapolis, MN areas twice a month. For potential adopters in those areas, we can do a virtual visit using FaceTime or another app. Just request an appointment using the same link, but note that you want the visit to be virtual and we will call you at the time of the visit once it is confirmed. For long distance transports, there is an additional $100 fee to cover the cost of the transport ($65) and a health certificate from a veteinarian ($35). Going that last mile home for our sweet pets! ##1801113##

Story
Lady is a very loving dog with lots of energy, she is kennel trained. She is about 2 years old give or take a month or so, she did not have the best of beginnings before my ex husband took her from the people who had her. She is very shy and timid and will pee when meeting new people but boy oh boy once she's comfortable with you she will be all over you. She loves cuddles and belly rubs and playing fetch. She is food aggressive around other animals, but she's good with other pets if they can handle her excitement. I need to find her a home soon, she is kennel trained.

Story
Are you looking for a new best friend?! Well look no further, because I promise to give you that and more! My name's Ripley, and I'm 7 years old. I'm the coolest Great Dane/Boxer mix around! I've been told I'm super silly, sweet, and snuggly. I just love receiving attention and promise to love on you back! I would love an owner who is looking for just one furry friend in their life, because I'd rather not share your attention with other pets. I love children and would do great with them, though! I'm also an escape artist when left alone, so someone who is home a lot or all the time would be amazing! I loooove playing in the backyard and laying in the sunshine. I hope you like the outdoors too so we can go on adventures!
