Adorable Kittens & Cats

Status
Adoptable
Age
3 months - 3 years
Breed
Short hair and long hair
Description

The shelter receives new cats and kittens in weekly. If homes or rescue are not found immediately, they will be euthanized to make room for the new stray cats to come in the next week. This is why spay/neuter is so important! It is not the fault of the county or the shelter staff that this happens. Please help promote adoption and spay/neuter! Because of this revolving door, we cannot always provide up to date photos of cats. Please go and visit the shelter to see what needs to be rescued.

Available immediately! Located at Giles County Animal Control in Pearisburg, VA. Call animal control through dispatch at (540)921-3842 or email gilescountyanimalrescue@gmail.com for adoption inquiries.

#654-12, Staffordshire Terrier needs a New Home

Name
Carlos
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.  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. The adoption fee is $100 and an adoption application required. He is no longer at the shelter, in foster care.

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, 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".

Carlos, his new name, is fully housetrained and would do well with children and other dogs. However, with cats, he can't resist the urge to chase them. He won't hurt them, but can be crazy with the chase...however, he wants to please his caretaker and if she commands him to 'leave it', he does.
