Hi there, I'm Sampson! I'm an adult, and I've got plenty of energy to share. My intelligence shines through in everything I do. I can figure out puzzles and games quicker than you'd believe. I do best with older, mature kids who understand my boundaries. I'm not your average dog, so it'd be best if you've had experience with my breed before. I promise you, I'm worth it. Why should you adopt me? Well, I'm a loyal companion who will keep you on your toes. I'm not just a pet, I'm a friend, and a constant source of entertainment. With me, life will never be boring.

Adoption Process
To adopt an animal through our facility you will fill out an adoption contract and pay applicable fees. It costs $10-$35 to adopt a cat; and $30-$120 to adopt a dog. All animals MUST be sterilized before leaving the shelter. If an animl is not fixed at the time of adoption, it will be spayed/neutered before it leaves by the shelter veterinarian. Adoption fees include all vaccinations, fees depend on spay/neuter status.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
