Queen was brought to our vet clinic on October 20th to be euthanized at the owners request. According to him, she was terminally ill, but Dr. Sydnor didn't feel like that was the right decision and convinced him to surrender her to us. We have performed lab work on her and she seems to be healthy. No illnesses have been identified.  

Queen was evaluated by Valerie, with Impausable Pups, who verified that Queen is sweet and adoptable! She does not like cats or kids and we are unsure of her liking other dogs. She has been in a kennel since being here and is reactive while in there. :( We don't blame her! This poor girl is in a strange place, but once she is out of the kennel, she takes to people very well.  

This sweet girl deserves a loving home before the New Year, so please contact us today!

Location: Gloucester, VA

This is our buddy, Socks. Socks finds himself at the pound after his person died. He is a friendly and happy boy looking for a comfortable home to live out his golden years. Socks is now ten, but still has a bit of puppy silliness in him, typical for the Boxer breed. While he usually gets along with other dogs, Socks would like to spend his time being the center of attention in his new family. Or at least, with only one or two furry siblings. In his previous life, he was cared for, and his basic needs were met but he was one of many dogs. While at the pound, the volunteers have introduced him to spoiling and one on one attention. He finds he enjoys this and so says..."bring it on! the walks, the cuddles, the soft bed, the tasty treats, the games in the yard, and the snuggles on the couch". He thinks he could become a lap dog without too much practice.

So if this sounds like a plan to you, please come meet this fine young man. While Socks is currently at the animal control pound in Gloucester, VA, the local humane society administers the adoptions. To arrange a meeting with him, PLEASE CONTACT

Jolene suits her name. She is a sweet and sassy gal, who takes a bit to warm up to you, but once she does, she is yours forever. She enjoys playing outside and would love to go for walks and for a bit of fun in a fenced in backyard. She absolutely loves riding in the car and loves dressing up in her cute winter coat. She walks well, takes treats gently and shows her appreciation for any kindness she is offered. She would do well as an only child or with other similar sized dogs. She could be tested with cats.

She keeps her run clean and walks well on a leash. She is happy and healthy and ready for her new and improved home. Could it be yours? She would love to be your new bestest friend.

Even tho she is at the pound, adoptions are administered by Gloucester Mathews Humane Society.

To arrange a meet and greet, please contact Brooke at animalplacement@gmhumanesociety.org or by calling Brooke at 804-693-5520 Thank you for helping this homeless dog.

If you think you can provide this young 9 month old American Staffordshire Terrier with endless TLC, cuddles and a family to call his own- Please contact us!

Chance aka Kermit (because he is always smiling) does well with other dogs (although still learning his manners). He is in playgroup with several of the dogs here. He is also good with children (he does forget his size at times.)

He would adore a home where he has the room to run and play, family to spend time with, room on the couch to cuddle, other companion animals and a family that wants to include him.

Chance is very clean about his kennel, is still working on learning his basic commands but is very eager to please!

She is a very loving and snuggly dog who wants to be the center of your world. She does amazing in her crate, that’s where she is at night and while we are at work and she is housebroken. With all this being said, she is also very nervous and fearful around men and some strangers. It took her a couple of days to get comfortable with my fiancé and now they are inseparable . She will take a lot of love and patience and proper introductions to new humans. She has loved all the women she’s met, its just the men that takes her a bit to warm up to. She has not been around kids so it might be best to have her around kids who are 13 or older, she can sometimes be a bull in a china shop when it comes to excitement. When she gets very excited she does have a habit of jumping that we have been working on as well. She should also be the only pet as she is also very jealous and reactive around other dogs and has a prey drive, so no cats or small animals. She resides now with an older and very docile dog friend and I believe that down the road, she may do well at home with a very calm and docile dog friend if they have a proper introduction. Once she has your trust, she is just a pure love bug and is very easy going. She loves her toys and she will go from running around playing to snuggling in an instant. She will let you trim her nails with ease, give her a bath , pick her up, etc. For the time we’ve had her, she has no signs of resource guarding or any of that behavior.

UPDATE:
Hi. It’s me Bubbs. As you know I have been here at the Gloucester animal control pound for a long long time. Things can be boring here for a smart and active dog like me. Lucky for me, there is a new volunteer who comes a couple times a week. He likes to hike at the local park and asked me if I would like to go with him. Heck yeah!!

The first day we walked four miles and he said I did great! I could have gone longer but maybe next time. We are making it a regular outing and it really helps me de-stress while here. Wouldn’t you like a hiking partner??

I can keep up with you and learn all about the great outdoors. Come visit me and we can get started
Note: Don’t let the amount of time Bubbs has been here make you nervous. He is one terrific dog and would make a fantastic and happy companion. He is also very good at couch cuddling!

Please contact Jacky to meet him and get to know him better. ofni.avretsecuolg@nosliwj

Luc is a playful boy who knows how to sit, shake, laydown, and roll over. He is easily leashed, and leash walked. He also responds great to correction! Luc has officially been with us for over a year (374 days to be exact) and still hasn’t found his forever home! Like most dogs Luc is dog selective. Adopting him would significantly impact our shelter and would bring several staff members to tears of joy. Please be the change he needs right now. Luc has been described by our shelter behaviorist as, “an all-around great dog”. However, this phenomenal boy is starting to believe that he is not going to make it out of the shelter. We want to make sure that is not the case. That is why we need your help! Luc has been here far too long and deserves a loving home to call his own. Please come meet him he'd love to see you!

Location: Stanley, VA

This sweet boy is Zeno! He is about 4-5 years old, neutered, and up to date on vaccinations. Zeno came to us after his owner could no longer care for him.

He is a very affectionate fella who just wants to be loved on constantly! He loves his whole body rubbed and scratched. Zeno has A LOT of energy and doesn't realize his size all the time so our recommendation would be older children with him, but he did live with all ages in his previous home. He was a "frequent flyer" here at the shelter as he liked to run out the door and explore the neighborhood. So a secure fenced in yard would probably suit him best. Zeno is almost housebroken. He only has accidents in his kennel if he can't hold it any longer or his tummy is upset. He also chews on his blanket out of stress, but we've helped that with finding him durable toys to chew on. We are working on straightening out his upset tummy with prescription gastrointestinal dry food (which he loves!), but hopefully soon he will be able to go back to regular food. Zeno also has been taking medication for a skin allergy that we've almost got under control, but it will likely be a lifelong issue with him that will need to be followed up with by a veterinarian.

He has not been cat tested, but lived with a female dog in his previous home. We would be comfortable doing a walk along with a female dog in a new home, but Zeno has shown some dominance with other male dogs.

This is Richie! He is 1.5 years, neutered, and up to date on his vaccinations. Richie came to us after his home situation was no longer safe for him. He encountered trouble with the family's free range poultry and small animals. He was not deemed dangerous or vicious, but animal control needs him to be adopted outside of the county, preferably out of state. He is hyperactive and has a little discipline. He knows some commands, but with more time and discipline, he'd make a great companion. A kennel environment hasn’t been terrible for him, but he is cage reactive with other reactive dogs that go by, especially other male Pitbulls. He is seemingly housetrained. He has not messed in his kennel once since his arrival.

Hi! Hey! Whatcha doin? This is Jazzy and I am one happy go lucky girl. My name suits me as I sparkle with personality. As you can see from my pictures, I have an expression for every situation and am sure to bring a smile to your face. I have been here at the local pound for a while now, but I don't let it get me down. I know there is a perfect home for me out there and the folks here at the pound and I are determined to find it. Could it be you? I love to play and be with my peeps, learn new things to do and get lots of exercise. We could do it together! A girl needs her exercise....I am very smart and would love to learn more . I walk pretty well on a leash but being in this pound situation, I don't get out much. I get so excited when it's my turn that I jump and bark and pull, but I do get better once I am out and have done some biz. I would need your help with that, so I would love a hooman who has some experience with us bullies. One thing I do love is to play with a sprinkler, or to just stand under a spraying hose. Oh, so refreshing in the hot weather.

I am dog selective, which means some dogs I really like, but others just rub me the wrong way so I will need to meet any other dogs who are in the family circle. But then, I would also love to be the only furry family member. I can take in all that love and attention, and give it back to you in huge amounts. I am up to the challenge of being your furever friend. Really!

Although I am currently in the county pound, the adoption process is administered by the Gloucester Matthews Humane Society, so please contact Brooke to come meet me. Her email is gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

I am so looking forward to meeting you and taking that first step to a new and wonderful life for both of us. Hope to see you soon!
