Our goal is to ensure that your new four-legged friend arrives fully equipped with all the skills necessary to make a successful adjustment to their new home and family life. The adoption process begins with an application form and concludes after the successful completion of a two week trial period designed to ensure a smooth transition for the animal and the new adopter.

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
COURTESY LISTING PLEASE CONTACT SONJA @ sonja9214@gmail.com OR 307-315-3117. Hi, my name is Jewel, I'm a 1 1/2 year old snowshow kitty with beautiful markings. I have been spayed and felv/fiv tested negative. I have all the traits of my breed : active, playful, very social, fearless. I give nose kisses, am very affectionate and communicate with happy chirps and occational meows when appropriate. There is a wonderful breed profile on petfinder that fit's me very well if I may say so myself. I currently live with a single person who's gone a lot so I am very lonely. I told her that I would like a home that is much more suitable for my social butterfly character. I need at least one other animal to play with and will integrate myself easily into a household with other cats and cat-friendly dogs. I like to explore outside in a relatively cat safe area when possible. I am very interested in everything you do and will be found by your side wherever you are, offering help in the kitchen, bathroom and on the computer. Vaccum cleaners do not scare me and although I am not afraid of loud noises I would prefer an adult home. My current mom trained me to use a scratching post and I accept gentle nail trimming without a complaint. If you would like to meet me please contact my mom at sonja9214@gmail.com or 307-315-3117. I'll be looking forward to snuggle with you!

 . COURTESY LISTING Doogie .
 . COURTESY LISTING Doogie .  . COURTESY LISTING Doogie .
  • Chihuahua, Dachshund
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
COURTESY LISTING. PLEASE CONTACT ERIC AND CAROLINE @ 858-386-6806 Doogie is a four year old male chihuahua mix. ?He is in fantastic health and is up to date on all vaccinations and received his most recent annual exam in January. He was either born with nerve damage in his front left arm, or was injured at a very young age and did not properly heal, therefor he walks with a small limp. Nonetheless, ? ? he ? ?i? s not in pain and assumes all normal, healthy dog activities ?. Doogie loves to run, chase his ball and can often be found herding the bigger dogs at the dog park. Doogie is a snuggler! He loves couch time and burying deep under the covers when its time for bed. He loves sleeping in sunny spots and receiving cuddles and kisses. He is happiest in the lap of his owner or curled up at the foot of the bed. Doogie was adopted by my husband and I out of an abusive home three years ago ?in San Francisco ? and has ? ? received the most love and affection a pup could ask for since the day he was brought home. ?We had a baby girl over a year ago and it is growing more and more difficult to balance the relationship between the curiosity of our toddler and Doogie's desire to not be on the receiving end of her ever-growing curiosities. It was with much grief and difficulty that we decided to send him to Wyoming to live with friends that promised an even greater adventure for Doogie, but last minute circumstances have them moving back to New York and they are unable to bring him along. ? ? ?We now find ourselves once again s? eeking a ?stable long-term ? ?home for Doogie ?where he will be accepted and unconditionally loved. Doogie does bite if he is afraid ?,? and can be very protective of his resources and owners. A ?doption by an ? experienced small dog owner who knows how to provide consistent boundaries for dogs that try to "toe the line" ?would be the ideal scenario. He can be very anxious in new situations and until he is fully comfortable, and as a result will display anxious behavior such as whining, barking and jumping. Once he knows everyone around him and is comfortable, he is haps as a clam, and is a lover! He craves stability and consistency ?.? Doogie would not do well in a home with young children or in a home that receives frequent visits from strangers. He is best in an environment with lots of exercise and room to explore, preferably with other dogs or animal siblings as he thrives in a pack dynamic. There are certain bad habits that he falls into once he gains comfort in an environment, but he has such a desire to please; I believe these habits can be broken with consistent and effective training. Doogie has a heart of gold and has the potential of being an incredible companion. If someone were to invest their efforts in Doogie, I know the outcome would be very rewarding. I would be happy to discuss Doogie further if anyone is interested in taking him on. Thank you, Eric and Caroline Richardson 858-386-6806?

***ARIES IS A COURTESY LISTING*** Aries is not located at the Animal Adoption Center. The owner is privately trying to re-home him. Please use the contact info listed below. Aries is a 9 yr old lab mix who loves to get attention from people petting him. He is a good, mellow dog and is easy going; however, still loves to go on walks. He is used to having his own dog bed and takes them with pleasure. He does require insulin injections and thyroid medication 2x/day with meals. He doesn't do well with other dogs as he does like his food too much, and we have found out doesn't do well with small or active children. We love our dog but obviously our child has to come first so we would love to find a good home as we think he still has several good years in him. He really is a good dog when he is the only dog and our child isn't around. He loves to be loved. My (Heidi) number is 720-934-3429 for anyone interested.

  • Pointer, Hound

Nelly was just a junkyard dog from Louisiana and had never known what it was like to be loved by humans. Nelly was probably always shooed away from people, had things thrown at her when she would find food, and just never saw any good from people. One day, poor Nelly was shot at with a tranquilizer gun by local law enforcement and was sent to a rescue. “We” were really making a great impression toward her. Nelly was with a rescue in Louisiana for 6 months. Then, December 23rd 2016 Nelly made her big adventure to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We have learned and grown a lot with Miss Nelly since her first arrival here. She still have some fear with people, so she will need someone who is willing to take time and have patience with her. Nelly has shown great improvement like cuddling on the couch and sleeping in bed. She adores other dogs, and loves to run with them. Nelly would do best in a quiet home, not an apartment. If you are interested in giving this girl a second chance, please call 307-739-1881.
