Meet Apache! He is friendly with women, men and children, and knows basic commands



Apache (A431789) is a 7-year-old neutered male who was surrendered to our shelter and is longing for his forever home. Apache is friendly with women, men and children, he is housebroken and knows basic commands, and he would prefer to be the only pet in the home. As part of our senior promotion Apache is free to adopt, and because he is already neutered, microchipped and vaccinated he will be available to go home the same day he is adopted. If you would like to meet Apache, links to make an appointment to visit the shelter are below:

For the month of July adoption fees are reduced to $10 for both dogs and cats as we encourage everyone to consider adopting a Quarantine Buddy. The fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip.
