There are some great dogs for adoption at the New Kent Animal Shelter, 6301 Olivet Church Rd, Providence Forge, VA 23140.
Only a $20 adoption fee (cash or check only) and they will go home with food, treats, toys, and a crate, if needed, to start you out right. If they are not already spayed or neutered, there are area limits on adoption of unaltered animals to New Kent and adjoining counties only.
Here are their descriptions:
Tito: mixed breed male, tan with black muzzle, he's about 4 yrs old, and weighs 65 lbs. He needs some training, but he's eager to please and very friendly. Tito needs a home with no cats. He is not neutered, but he has a neuter sponsor.
Tabbie: female senior pit mix, came in to the shelter very thin with low hanging nipples from the Barhamsville area. They have decreased in size now, and she's put on a few needed pounds. She's a medium sized dog and weighs about 45 lbs. She's smart and very friendly with people.
Starry Sky: aka, Bubbles, American Bulldog, available for adoption! She's only 2.5 yrs old, perfectly crate trained, spayed, current on vaccines, heart-worm negative, on hw prevention, recently had Bravecto, which protects her from fleas/ticks for 3 months, no cats in her new home, possibly okay with a calm, friendly dog, with owner experience and slow intros. Best as an only pet though.
She will come with her crate, bed, food, fav toys, snacks, etc. Her favorite activity is fetch, and she's very gentle with letting you get the ball to throw again. She knows sit and shake. She's a very smart girl who would love to continue her basic training.
She can be protective of her own home, so we've been letting her meet new people outside while giving treats, then going inside, and it's been going very well. If you have the type of home where friends, neighbors just pop in, no knocking, she's probably not a good match for you. Please share to help find her a well matched home! She's been in and out of 3 shelters so far, she needs a permanent, committed home who will love and care for her
Rusty: young beauty is about 1 Yr old, 45 lbs, small hound size, but he has some border collie or bird dog mixed in. He has the most beautiful, shiny, rusty red coat, with a fan tail. He seems to get along with the dogs next to him and he knows how to sit when asked.
