Story
Meet Rosalind!  Rosalind came to us from a neglect case with four other dogs, and she is now looking for a cozy place to call home. Rosalind is a beautiful black and white pit bull terrier mix, and she was born in early 2019. One look at Roz and you can tell she's had a tough start to her life, she has more than her fair share of scratches and scars. This includes one larger scar along her ribs where this poor baby was actually shot when she was just a pup. Thankfully, nothing she's ever been through has left any lasting damage, and she is now healthy as can be in our care. Even though Rosalind has had it bad, she is still such a positive girl. She is incredibly friendly, and she loves everyone she meets. She gives the best kisses, great snuggles, and has the prettiest doggy smile. Roz still has a lot of youth in her heart, and would love someone to play with and to show her how good life can be. Rosalind would love a home with kids, and she enjoys playing with her dog friends. She does need a kitty- free home.  Rosalind is fully vetted, microchipped, and spayed. She weighs roughly 60lbs, and her adoption fee is $125. Interested in Miss Rosalind? Call 615-446-7387.  ##872428##

Story
Meet Nemo!Hi, my name is Nemo. But my friends call me Neems, goober, goofball, and crazy boy! When I came in, I was so hungry, and they all told me I was way too skinny. They gave me some food, and dang did it feel good to eat! They said my breed is 'pitbull', and they gave me a birthday too! April 29, 2021, which sounds like a pretty good birthday to me. Not that any of that matters to me, I'm just happy to have so many friends! They told me that they're trying to find me my very own family, can you believe it? It must be wonderful to have a place to call home. Some things about me are I love toys, stuffies, and anything to chew. Snacks are a must, but don't come near my food bowl unless you want me to get grumpy, I’m still learning to share, I really enjoy slow feeders, puzzle feeders, etc. I love running, jumping, and exploring, but more than anything else I LOVE playing in the water! Sometimes my friends will bring me outside and turn on a sprinkler just so I can bite the water and play. Others dogs are so fun, I wouldn't mind a new furry brother or sister at all! I'm not sure what a "kid" is, but they sound like fun. Would you help me find my forever family? Nemo is 56 lbs, fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $175. A meet and greet is required if you have any other dogs, and he needs a kitty free home.  Interested? Call 615-446-7387 ##1701422##

Story
Meet Squeaklynn! This pretty girl is ready to find her forever home! This poor girl was brought in as a stray and was sadly never claimed. Miss Squeaky is a beautiful pittie mix who weighs approximately 38lbs and her estimated date of birth is 11/01/2020. This little firecracker is the life of the party! Squeaklynn is a very outgoing  girl who absolutely loves her squeaky toys, which may or may not have anything to do with her name! She is very hyper and will do fantastic with adopters that can her busy! On top of her spunky personality, she has so much love to offer behind those big brown eyes! Squeaklynn is excellent on a leash and knows basic commands like "sit" and "speak" and is super treat motivated! This sweet girl is absoulutely amazing with other dogs, cats, and children! With children they need to know how to handle her, when she does become excited she will become mouthy without any agression behind it, and that can be fixed with proper correction! Squeaklynn loves other dogs so much that we reccomend having another buddy in the home with her! As always we do require a meet and greet for any other dogs that would like to meet her! Squeaklynn would love to run and play with you all day long! Will you give her the chance? Squeaklynn previously tore her ACL, ans had a floating knee but has had surgery to repair them. She is fully healed and doing great, but excessive running and jumping may cause her some aches and pains in that leg. While she doesn't have any true restrictions, we recommend a home without a lot of stairs.  Squeaklynn is fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped. Adoption Fee: 175  If you are interested in the beautiful Squeaklynn call 615-446-7387 to set up an appointment. ##1569028##

Meet Rubble Rubble is looking for his forever home! This sweet boy was brought in as a stray and was sadly never claimed. Rubble is an extremely handsome pittie mix that weighs about 60lbs and his estimated date of birth is 09/01/2018. As you can see, Rubble is filled head to toe with a silver lining as he slowly creeps into his senior years, but that just means he's more experienced with love! Rubble would adore nothing more than to be snuggled in a warm comfy bed with his new human. He is amazing when it comes to leash manners and knows basic commands such as sit, and is highly food motivated! Rubble does great with dogs, but as always we require a meet and greet if you already have any. He does not do well with cats. He also loves kids. Rubble is fully vetted, microchiped, and neutered. Interested in this handsome boy? Call 615-446-7387 to set up an appointment. ##1543556##

Story
Meet Chica!  Miss Chica is looking for a calm home to help her recover and heal. Chica is a very loving pitbull mix who was unfortunately diagnosed with Heartworms in December of 2023. She is currently undergoing treatments, and will be so until into the late spring or early summer. Since she is undergoing treatments, she is not available for adoption, however she is searching for a dedicated foster to give her a comfy place to undergo treatment. Chica weighs roughly 60lbs, and is dog and kid friendly, but no yet tested with cats.  Her foster would be responsible for giving Chica her oral medications as directed, and bringing her to the shelter for check-ins and injections. Chica needs a home that is able to give her love, security, and a calm place for her to rest. All medications and treatments are covered by the Humane Society. If you are interested, please call 615-446-7387.  ##1886920##

Story
Saturn is truly the Queen of Hearts at our shelter, and we are totally devoted to her. One of our volunteers says: "Saturn loves all of her friends so deeply that I feel humbled by the capacity of her heart." **We are so grateful to our friends at the Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation who are sponsoring FREE training for six weeks through GoodPup for Saturn and her new family!** Saturn is five years old and weighs 52 pounds. Her black and white coat is beautifully marked. She has a warmth and equanimity that make her a sought after companion. Saturn is an absolute joy to be around and we all savor her company. Saturn has such a zest for life! She will roll around on her back and kick up her legs, truly living in the moment with so much joy. She also loves belly rubs. Saturn trots companionably at your side on daily walks and enjoys exploring the shelter grounds. She also likes to be in the fenced yard and her favorite thing is playing fetch. She will leap high into the air to catch a toy you toss her way and is so agile, athletic and graceful! Saturn likes to go to the toy box and select the ones she wants to play with! Saturn has also enjoyed outings with some of our volunteers and is a great representative for our shelter! She has also had several sleepovers and been a cherished guest. Saturn is a bright dog who has already mastered the sit, give paw, come and stay commands, and is working on down. The daughter of one of our volunteers says Saturn makes her feel calm inside. She has done so well with the children of several of our volunteers. Saturn is such a great dog! She has a serenity of spirit that makes her a joy to be around. Saturn is the perfect dog to be at your side during the day and curl up at your feet at night! Saturn spent some out of the shelter time in the home with one of our dedicated volunteers and here is what Betty Ann says about her: "She is a lover! Saturn is super affectionate and gives lots of hugs and kisses. She is easy on the leash and loves long walks on the trail. Balls are her favorite toy. She'll pounce on them and bring them back to you. She's not a picky eater and loves all kinds of treats - and will sit for them. Saturn is super soft and barely sheds. She thinks she's a lap dog. Saturn would benefit from a fenced in yard where she can run. Its been a pleasure to have her in our home. She has brought us so much joy! Saturn will be a loyal friend to whomever chooses her and gives her the life she deserves." Two of our devoted volunteers have frequently hosted Saturn at their house when the shelter is closed and Sara reports: "Saturn is a bouncy dog, playful and joyful and happy in your company. She also loves playing quietly at your feet enjoying her chewy toys. She is always up for a walk or playtime in the yard, but is easy and content when inside with her people. She loves people she knows and loves affection. She is eager to learn how to be a good dog and she needs some guidance with that because she has lived at Animal Control half of her young life. She wants a person who will be kind and patient but firm with her while she learns. She needs to be an only pet in the a calm house. Saturn is wonderful to have around the house. She is sweet and good natured and very good company. Saturn is loved by everyone at Animal Control and She will be the best dog ever if you put in the time and love she deserves." She may only be adopted by someone experienced with a dog who is protective of her people around strangers. She must be put in another room securely when strangers enter the house and room. And Saturn must be properly introduced or remain in another room. She needs a patient, experienced owner who can work with her, provide structure, and help her feel secure. A household without lots of activity would be the best environment for Saturn. It would be helpful if someone will be home with her most of the time. E-mail ccacangels@yahoo.com for more information! Please come visit! We are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Meet Leonidas!  What this handsome boy lacks in height he makes up for in personality. Leonidas is a sweet little guy, he's the most loveable bulldog mix. He came to us as a stray in mid August, but he has been friendly and loving from the start. He has the biggest personality, he loves to run around and play the day away. If he were a person, he would be an athlete for sure. Energetics aside, he is a total ham! Mr. Leo is one of the biggest lovers on the planet, he loves nothing more than getting good scratches all around his cheeks and under his chin. Belly rubs are his favorite past-time, and he would make a killer movie-night partner. Leo has gone through lots of training here with us too, he knows the 'sit' command like the back of his paw, and will also walk well on a leash for a confident handler. Unfortunately, on 08/30/2021, Leo was diagnosed with heartworms.This poor guy went through almost a year of treatments, but we are happy to announce that he is now heartworm negative and ready to find his forever home! Leonidas is also required to be the only other animal in the home since he does not get along with other animals, however he loves children! Leo is fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Interested? Call us at 615-446-7387 to get any additional information, or to set up an appointment to come and meet him.  ##1190205##

Meet November!  Miss November is ready to find her forever home. Novie is a beautiful boxer and mountain cur mix, with an estimated birthday of 12/01/2020.

Novie has become a big lovebug, she is all happy smiles and butt wiggles, and has never met someone she didn't love. She does very well with other dogs, but as always we require a meet and greet if you already have any at home. She also does great with kids, but we have not yet tested her with cats.  She is fully vetted, microchipped, and spayed. Her adoption fee is $175. Interested? Call us at 615-446-7387.  ##1880428##

Meet Mushi! Hey everybody, my name is Mushi! I'm so excited to meet you! Well, I'm excited to meet everybody. I'm an American Bulldog mix, and I was born right about 03/01/2022. My friends here at the shelter like to call me all kinds of goofy nicknames, like Mushy, Mushster, Mushmallow, and Mushiboy. I don't mind any of them, because that means I'm getting attention! Attention is one of my favorite things, after all. I do have lots of favorite things, though. Treats are my favorite, people are my favorite, toys are my favorite, running is my favorite, playing is my favorite... I could go on and on! I'm told my squishy cheeks and happy smile are irresistable, so only come meet me if you're prepared to fall in love! I really like other dogs, too, but I definitely have fun being the dog in charge. If you already have any other dogs, make sure you bring them to meet me so I can decide if they can hang with me. I think kids are great, but I really don't like being hugged or held, so only kids that understand my boundaries, please.  Mushi is fully vetted, microchipped, and neutered. His adoption fee is $175. Interested? Call us at 615-446-7387.  ##1992504##
