Smokey IS AVAILALBE (updated 07-14-2021).To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Smokey, please visit our website below received an email about a dog who was at the shelter and needed rescue. The email stated, &#39Abandoned- night drop.&#39 We saw a picture of a young, terrified dog, slouched against the wall, trying to disappear, and decided we needed to go get him ASAP. Smokey spent a few days at the hospital, had multiple tests run, was given some vaccines, then came and joined the pack. He can be shy when first meeting strangers, but he opens up fairly quickly. He is probably not even a year old, loves to play with other dogs, chase toys around the yard, check in for pets and kisses, then go and do it all over again.  This adorable pooch didn&#39t know how to walk on a leash, but he picked it up really quickly and now knows his basic commands, to boot. Some have guessed he&#39s got some Belgian Malinois mixed in there (he&#39s only around 50 pounds), but we have no idea. What we do know is that he&#39s adorable, friendly, and going to make someone wonder how he ever ended up in that drop box at the shelter.The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
