Oh, oh, oh, hi! My name is Missy! I was recently returned to the SPCA because my family could no longer keep me. They did have lots of good things to say about me, though! They said that I like to ride in the car and I got along well with their children. I do pull pretty hard on my leash, so I will need somebody who can handle me and work with me to teach me better leash manners. I have got energy to spare, so you''ll need to ready to run! Lots of exercise, like jogs, walks, hikes, and games of fetch will all help me stay healthy and happy. The staff here has been working with me on learning to share my toys and my food. I''ve improved a lot, but my new family will need to continue working with me on this to make sure I don''t go back to my old ways. Because of this, I''ve had some trouble making dog friends here at the shelter, so if you have a dog at home now, it would be a good idea for us to meet here before you decide to take me home. I hope that you will come in and spend some time with me today! I am full-grown at ~53 lbs. I am currently living at the Holding Center- please speak with an adoption counselor about meeting me!
~My adoption fee is $95.00.~

Many adoptions will take approximately 1 hour or more. Adoption requirements and tips to speed up the adoption process: Please be able to provide a valid photo I.D. with your current address (If your I.D. does not reflect your current address, bring a piece of mail with your name and address on it) Be able to prove that you are allowed to have a pet where you live (proof of home ownership or a copy of your rental lease including the specific pet policy) Bring along all members of your household, including dogs for an introduction to a new dog. However, we do recommend meeting with an adoption counselor before involving children in the pet selection process. To avoid longer wait times, we strongly recommended that dog-to-dog meetings take place after 1:00pm. Participate in adoption counseling process to learn adoption guidelines and adoption options. Adoption Fees: Dogs & Puppies: $115.00 Cats & Kittens: $95.00 Rabbits: $50.00 Adoption fees include: Basic wellness exam, first vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, deworming and flea preventative.
