Arrooo! My name is Bubba Joe, but my friends call be Bubba, and I hope we can be friends! I seem to have lost track of my home. No one has claimed me, so I am looking for a new family. I am a young coonhound mix, maybe two years old, neutered male, UTD on vaccinations and heartworm negative. I am learning my inside manners so I can be the perfect companion. I do have lots of energy and love to run and play so a fenced yard is a must! I love to rough house, so if I get a playmate, the need to be my size and energy level. I have heard about cats, but I don’t think I have ever met one. I might not be good with smaller humans, due to my size and enthusiasm

Ringo s a three-year-old neutered male. He is a mixed breed; Spaniel? Heeler? Pointer? You fill in the blank! He is good with other dogs and cats. Ringo is house trained, UTD on vaccinations and will make someone a great companion. Ringo likes to wander so he will need a fenced yard. Ringo wants to nip at fingers, a bad habit we are working on, but due to this we do not recommend Ringo in a home around small children.

Ringo will come with a voucher for an eight-week training session at K9 Coach Training in York NE.

November is Adopt a Senior Month and we have a wonderful senior lady available. Princess is reportedly 11 years old but acts like 5 or 6. She is a mixed breed, believe heeler and boarder collie. She is not high maintenance but definitely has some opinions on her ideal forever home. Definitely no cats and she prefers to be an only dog. A lot of noise and activity make her nervous so we recommend no small children. She is shy at first, but once she gets to know you she is very loving. She is a happy girl who’s tail is always letting you know just how happy she is. She is spayed and UTD on vaccinations.

There are many reasons people choose to adopt pets. Whether seeking companionship, love, or a playmate for your child, a pet will offer company, unconditional acceptance and love, a listening ear and years of joy to you and your family. In return, they ask merely for food, shelter and a family to love.

By adopting a pet from our shelter, you will be gaining friendship and love. You will be helping solve the pet population problem and providing a service to your community. You offer your children the opportunity to learn the importance of responsibility; and you offer a pet in need a new chance at life, and a new family to love.

If you are considering a pet adoption, or believe you may be a fit for our foster program, please contact our rescue. We will work with you to help find a pet that fits well with your family, your home and with the pace of your lifestyle.
