Kipp

Handsome Kipp is an older boy and will do best with mature people and teenage children in a home.

Did you know that approximately 25% of all dogs and puppies in a shelter will be purebred or of a designer breed. Designer breeds are two desirable breeds that are mated for the sole purpose of producing highly-salable puppies for profit. Yep ... crazy isn't it! People purchase pets and then, often, loose their commitment to be a pet parent. This is not uncommon in higher socioeconomic situations where the larger sum of money to purchase the pet wasn't a factor and pets are viewed as disposable. And, there are sometimes when these pets are in a shelter because they have wandered away from home and have never been reclaimed by their owner or were surrendered by their owner. Whatever the reason, it is important to know that you can find an amazing selection of deserving, orphaned dogs at Summit County Animal Control. Because they are always so exceptional, they won't be here long! Don't delay ... let's get these deserving dogs in a home today! Thank you, photographer, Olivia Mandala, for capturing their cuteness!

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy (or kitty). Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

And our Cats ... Justine and Mindy ... a BONDED pair

Herman

Meet Herman.  This boy is going to weigh in at about 35 pounds and is as cute as a bug.  He is listed as a Pug mix and that “smooshed” face of his proves it!  This adult dog wants to go home.  Herman was very timid upon intake but he’s learning that we can be trusted and we will keep him safe.  You get the impression that this sweet boy once lived in a calm and quiet environment and he just wants to go home.  Don’t delay … please go to meet your next best friend, Herman, today.

Note:  Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home.  For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks.  You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity.  We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy.  Assume they know nothing and begin at step one.  You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member.  It's called commitment!  And, that's what these pets want more than anything!

Ranier

Meet … Ranier!

What are people thinking???  Dropped off at the shelter as a senior!   Unbelievable!  I'm a good boy and I have the typical appeal that all deserving dogs have ... soft fur, sweet eyes, irresistible ears and because of my unfortunate present state, some very insecure behavior :). Hey, you may as well know it up front ... I'm nervous and concerned for my future.  In fact, at this point I lack a bit of confidence. You see ... I was once in a house and use to a couch.  No middle aged or senior dog should have to find themselves in a shelter in their golden days.
