Hi, I'm Toby! I am about 5 years old, and I would love to go home with you. I am leash trained and would be easy to finish obedience training. I love attention and being petted. Please don't let me live my life out in the shelter. Please consider me as your new best friend! Come check me out on the pet list!
Who We Are
The purpose of this society is the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the extension of humane education.
It is the policy of the society:
To provide humane care and treatment for all animals in the care of the society;
To seek to return lost animals to their owners;
To provide euthanasia when necessary.
No animal under control of the society may be disposed of except as specifically provided under guidelines set by the Humane Society of the United States.
We are committed to reducing the animal overpopulation through spay/neutering opportunities, assisting law enforcement with potential abuse or neglect cases and to operate a no-kill shelter for Jackson County.
Adopting a friend
Please contact the society for adoption fees . We reserve the right to refuse adoption priviledges to anyone.
Our dogs are guaranteed to "fit" with your family, or they are happily accepted back by our shelter.
Because we are all volunteers, there are no employees at the shelter. Visits to the shelter are made by appointment--- Call 870-217-5878. A volunteer will take or return your call as soon as possible. You can also inquire about a particular dog through the contact person provided with the dog's description.
