Mamas

Mamas, 7, thinks she is a puppy. She loves being petted, playing with toys, and jumping around like a pogo stick. She knows sit and down and will walk on leash with pulling.  Mamas was abandoned with her friend Deuce, and she gets along with other dogs.

She shouldn’t live with kids at this point due to resource-guarding. We think Deuce was getting most of the food, so she is very intense (not aggressive) about her kibble!  As a senior, her adoption fee is waived for adopters 65 years or older and $25 for everyone else.  To schedule a time to meet Mamas, start the process by completing the online application here.

Boscoe

Boscoe, 2, is a bouncy and peppy Pit mix. He is an affectionate dog who loves ear rubs and hugs. He knows sit, down, crawl, stay, come, kennel up and walks on leash (harness recommended).

Boscoe gets along with other dogs his size and children, but not cats or small dogs. If you are looking for an exercise buddy or a smart dog to train further, Boscoe is your guy!

We continue to operate by appointment only.  See this page  for the list of all available pets and how to go about meeting them!

King, the Dashing Southwestern Labsky

dog of week 11-23-13 king webKing was adopted within hours of his debut, but we wanted to share him with you anyway!

As athletic as the mighty Pirates and sweeter than honey, 9-month-old King is as unique as they come.  King is a Dashing Southwestern Labsky and you can only find him at the Georgetown Animal Shelter.

Since King is mostly black, he would match all of your black and gold Southwestern gear.  He is very ball driven and would love to accompany you to any sporting event – just watch for the pick six because King WILL intercept the ball! King is neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped, and housetrained.

He was brought to the shelter with 7 of his siblings when they were 3 months old and he is the only one still waiting for a home. King is now the longest term resident at the shelter and has a reduced adoption fee. King’s motto, just like Southwestern University, is “Not Who But What.”

King doesn’t care who you are, what kind of car you drive, or how much money you make. King only cares about what kind of life you will provide for him. His only requirement: a lifetime of love and loyalty.  Please don’t let King celebrate his first birthday at the shelter.

Doug

dog of week 08-24-13 doug

10/5  Adopted!

Howdy-do! My name is Doug and I am a 2 year old cattle dog. Oh don’t mind this collar around my neck! It’s actually gone now.  I recently had surgery to help fix a previous injury to my back leg and the humans around here didn’t want me to lick my stitches for some reason.  I am neutered, current on vaccines, and microchipped.

I am housetrained and know basic commands, and I get along great with all people and other dogs.  I might always have a permanent limp but that won’t hinder me from going on walks in the park, hopping in the car for a ride, or snuggling next to you during the ball game. Do you have a Doug-shaped hole in your life? Have no fear! I am ready to fill that hole and enjoy a lifetime of love and laughter with a new forever family. Come visit me today and see just how great I truly am!
