Meet Staples

Meet this handsome fella named Staples! He was brought into the shelter by animal control on September 20, 2023 after he had been found hit by a car. He needed emergency surgery and thankfully was able to be seen at emergency hospital initially to stabilize and clean him up. Then once at the shelter the manager was able to get him in at Mitchell’s Village Animal hospital where his wounds were cleaned and he was stitched up and had multiple rechecks. The community donated and expenses were raised for his care. Huge thank you to the community!! Months of recovery and he’s now ready for his adoption day. He spent much of his days healing in the managers office were we learned he was very house broken. Such a sweet and loving pup. He is 1 year 6 months old, current on shots, now neutered, and in need of a loving home to call his own. Now he is in the big kennels and he has gotten very stressed and is keeping his paws crossed that it’s not much longer for his FOREVER home to come. He has been through so much and once in a home with plenty of time to run out and play he will settle in nicely. Staples so deserves to know a great life. He is smart and wants to please he just is a little over zealous at times…especially when he initially gets out of his kennel. Staples would love a home with a tall fenced in yard to play in but does not seem to like other animals while at the shelter so a home without other fur kids is best. Loves to run and chase after a ball and with a little training, patience, love, & commitment from the new owners to help guide him into his new home/life I think he will thrive and settle in pretty quickly. Stop by for a visit with Staples and give him a fabulous loving home to call his own.
If you have another dog and are interested in meeting another potential new furry member please bring him or her to the shelter and meet on neutral ground before adopting. No need to shuffle the animals around any more than necessary. Please know that 1 mosquito bite can create heart worms and they can be fatal if not treated. It is VERY important to keep your pets healthy and protected by keeping them on a once a month heart worm and flea/tick prevention. These animals are counting on you as their owner to provide them with lots a love and the proper health care so PLEASE make sure you are aware and prepared before adopting. Owning a pet is an extra expense and responsibility but is so worth every minute and penny you invest in them. They will add lots of joy and unconditional love if given a fair chance.
The shelter is open Mon.-Fri. 10-1, 2-5, Sat. 10-4. Adopt a homeless pet and save a life. If you can not adopt right now come out and volunteer and make a difference in the lives of these animals while they await their FOREVER home.
In order to adopt any of our "bully breeds" there is special paper work that will need to be collected and approved prior to the adoption. We love all of our dogs and want to make sure to place our "bully babies" in homes best suited for them.
