Meet Barney (A442313)! This sweet boy is 3 years old and is our longest-term resident – he has been at the shelter for over 130 days, and he's hoping his forever family is out there looking for him. Barney gets along with other dogs and engages in gentle and dainty play, and he often participates in the shelter's play group activities. He is known as our "helper dog."
Barney is heartworm-positive. Thanks to Webb Engineering, his heartworm treatment is sponsored, meaning much of the cost of it will be covered. Barney is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready to go home the same day he is adopted!
For the month of March we are celebrating Lucky Paws and adoption fees are $20 for cats and $20 for dogs. Adoption fees cover sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip.
