Meet Athena

Athena is a volunteer favorite-- she is shy at first but a very good-natured gal. This gem has been overlooked so far becauses he doesn't "stand out" physically, but her lucky adopter will be glad that others passed up such a fantastic dog!
We were told Athena is a doberman x lab mix, though we see more lab than anything, so her breed mixture is anyone's guess!

Who says older dogs don't like to play?! Athena is crazy about tennis balls and an excellent fetcher! She is eager to learn, and very much wants to please her person/people. She will be a wonderful companion.

Athena seems to get along well with some other dogs, (Properly introduced, of course).

Shelter staff think Athena is about 8 years old. Come meet her today!

***** PLEASE NOTE: Our adoption process can move quite quickly, and applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. You must visit the animal in person at the shelter before submitting an application (see visiting hours below).

Some animals, especially puppies/kittens and small dogs, can go very quickly. For this reason, we recommend that if you see an animal you are interested in, you come into the shelter *as soon as possible*.

Our busiest days are Saturdays and Sundays, and if you plan to come on one of those days we highly recommend that you arrive early (at noon or even a few minutes before) in order to minimize wait times and maximize your chances of being the first applicant on the pet you wish to adopt.

Please do not bring your current pets to the shelter. If you intend to adopt a dog and want the new dog and your current dog to meet, that can be scheduled with the help of your Adoption Counselor. Thank you! *****
