Cats & Kittens for Adoption!!!

Status
Adoptable
Age
kittens to adults - all ages
Breed
Short hair and Long Hair
Description

The Giles County Animal Shelter gets cats and/or kittens in weekly. If not adopted, they are euthanized within a week to make room for the next batch of kittens/cats that need to come in. Dozens of cats are surrendered, which is so sad. We must promote more Spay/Neuter.

GCAR and other rescue groups try to pull and rescue as many as we can, but we need more people to ADOPT!!

If you are looking for a cat or kitten, please consider visiting the shelter on Sat or Sun from 2-4pm or by appointment with Animal Control, by calling, 540-921-3842. The type of cats and/or kittens changes so fast, we have a difficult time keeping photos up to date.

You may email us if any questions, gilescountyanimalrescue@gmail.com, however, realize we do not run the shelter nor do we have volunteers during the week.

Thank you for looking!

Status
Adoptable
Age
2 years
Sex
Male
Breed
Staffordshire Terr
Description

MD-654-12 is a male Mixed Breed who was surrendered by his owners on 10/17/12. He is 2 years old and weighs about 60 lbs. He is very sweet and eager to learn. You can bribe him to "sit" if treats are at stake! This lovable boy would make a great addition to your home! Available immediately. Email, gilescountyanimalrescue@gmail.com for adoption inquiries. He has been behavior tested with other dogs and with food; he is sweet with everybody and with other dogs. He is neutered and vaccinated, and appears to have been trained on a wireless dog fence. The adoption fee is $100 and an adoption application required. He is no longer at the shelter, in foster care.

We need to raise funds for his vet care: neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test, preventative, etc. A local rescue has joined forces with us so we can save this boy from the kill shelter. Please consider chipping in to help us.

12/6/12 Update from foster family: He's calmed down quite a bit, but still gets excited when he's first let out, first sees a new dog, first sees a new person, etc. He calms down quickly though and has not jumped on anyone in weeks. He now walks well on a leash, sits (almost always when commanded), lies down (it takes a while for him to do this without treats), and "waits" for things very well: for food, going outside, going for a walk, getting out of his crate, coming back inside, etc. Right now we're working on "stay" and "leave it".
