I'm a beautiful girl who was rescued from a hoarding situation where there were more than 20 dogs. Due to my past life I am timid and under-socialized, but I've been making amazing progress! I was scared when I first arrived at the HSJC but within a few days I starting coming to my caregivers and giving them kisses. I am extremely sweet and it's obvious that I really want to be loved. I've started to learn what toys are and am revealing more of my super sweet and eager-to-please personality. Because of my past life and shyness I need a quiet, adults only home (no kids) and a patient adopter who will give me lots of time to feel comfortable and adjust to living in a home setting. I must live with another dog because I gain confidence from being with other canines and will be much happier if I have a furry friend. I rely heavily on my sister Aurora but if my adopter has a dog-friendly pup that would work too! I'm not suitable for just anyone and need a dog savvy adopter who will give me time to feel safe and secure. It's a big job but also a very rewarding one, and I'm ready to learn how it feels to be loved and return that love a hundred times over!
**Due to Kira's past she needs a quiet, adults only home with a very patient adopter. She gains confidence from being with other dogs and must live with another dog.
The online adoption listing websites require that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
We do not do same-day adoptions. In order for an application to be approved, all animals in the home must be up to date on routine vaccinations, we must receive approval from the landlord or be able to verify home ownership. We also require the consent of all adults in the home. Ideally, all members of a household will meet an animal before adoption, but in cases where that is not possible, verbal consent is acceptable. Once approved, when adopting a dog, we require that any other dogs in the household come to the shelter to do a supervised interaction with the adoptable dog.
Adoption fees are as follows:
Dogs under 6 months: $150
Dogs 6 months and over: $125
Cats under 6 months: $95
Cats 6 months and over: $80
Rats, Hamsters, Gerbils: $5
Finches & Canaries: $10
Guinea Pigs: $12
