Smokey is a 10-year-old pup who’s a bit timid when he first meets new people, but if you go slow, soon he’ll be wagging his tail and asking for pets. He’s a pretty mellow guy who can’t wait to find a home of his own.
This month, in honor of Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month, cats have a reduced adoption fee of $50 (normally $95) and dogs have a reduced adoption fee of $75 (normally $125-$175) sponsored by Two Men and a Truck for Movers For Mutts! Adoption fees for dogs and puppies includes a basic medical exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check, heartworm test and deworming.
Thanks to our sponsors, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive a complimentary first wellness visit from Park Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care and a free full day of camp at Camp Bow Wow.
