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!

Is there anything more handsome than a shiny black boy with a big pink tongue? This is Harrell. As he came to us as a stray, we don't know much about him but here is what we do know. He is sweet and friendly to everyone. He loves attention, takes treats gently, keeps his run clean, and is a happy healthy boy! He is looking for a loving home for the holidays. Could that be you? He could be an only child or be a great brother to another dog. He can be tested with cats, if needed. Though he walks nicely on a leash, he would also enjoy a fenced in yard with toys and games and just being silly. Then, maybe a snuggle on the couch?

Please consider adopting this sweet boy. He will be happy to help you or your children keep an eye out for Santa! He is move in ready!

To meet this very special boy, please contact Brooke at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

Harrell will be so happy to meet you.

Meet one of the sweetest pups ever. This is Audrey, only 10 months old, yet so calm and friendly and well mannered. Sadly, her life so far has been anything but easy. As one of the volunteers said, "sometimes the pound is a step up" and that is the case for Audrey. She lived her life at the end of a chain tied to a tree. She is grateful for any kindness offered and shows it with cute wiggle butts and sweet soft kisses. She keeps her run clean, walks nicely on a leash, gets along well with all the other dogs and everyone she meets. She is so proud of the pretty new winter coat one of the volunteers gave her and struts her stuff! She takes treats gently and lovingly.

When she came in she had some skin issues, likely due to poor diet and fleas, but now her beautiful coat is growing in and she is all ready for her new and improved life. Does she sound perfect? Well, that's because she is! She would fit into just about any family ,and would love to be in the family holiday pictures with a stocking hanging alongside yours. Please consider giving this perfect dog a perfect home. To meet her, please contact Brooke at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina or call for Brooke at 804-693-5520

You will fall in love! Bless you for helping a homeless dog.

Hello to YOU! My name is Betsy Loo!

This sweet face spent all of her life chained up. No where near grass and surrounded by dozens of other barking dogs. With a chain that weighed nearly as much as her, she had space enough to run in a circle and was provided a wooden dog house for comfort.

Needless to say, Betsy is looking for a second Chance. The persons responsible will do their time and we were happy to be able to provide mutual aid for Betsy and the others.

Now, we are hoping Betsy will have a chance to know exactly what it is like to spend her time cuddling and with a family that will love her furever.

Betsy is:
Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Breed: Pitbull
Good with Children: Yes
Pending evaluation with other dogs. Meet and Greets required.

A very Happy Fall Ya'll from CHLOE!

Look at this gorgeous GIRL! Her pictures don't really do her justice!
Chloe is an American Bulldog that we pulled from our shelter partner Hopewell Animal Services! They are over flowing with dogs and we stepped in to provide some assistance.

Tell you about Chloe? SURE!
This large lovebug was an owner surrender at no fault of her own. Her family could no longer care for her and she was surrendered to Hopewell Animal Services.
Age: 4 years young
Sex: Female
Breed: American Bulldog: She is registered with the National Kennel Club
Weight: 82lbs
Medical: Heartworm Tested Negative, Up to date on rabies vaccination.
*Prefers to be an ONLY pet* --
Likes: Loves her people! She does not realize her size and therefore Chloe would be best suited in a home that has children over 10 years of age.
Dislikes: Anything that has stuffing. She will do anything to play unbuild a bear with stuffed animals. She will work endlessly to kill anything with a squeaker :)

Please note- Chloe is not suitable for an apartment** She is looking for an active home that has *large breed experience* Her picture does not do her justice with how large she is!

Chloe adores her playtime and is looking for a family that is active!

Please call the shelter to inquire about Chloe- 804-520-9397.

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!

UPDATE:
Here is our boy, Sweet Pete! Pete has been here a long time, and is anxious to find a new and loving home. He was owner surrendered due to no fault of his own and is five years old. He still has some puppy silliness but knows his manners. While he is a big 82 pounds, you would never know it as he walks so nicely on a leash, and is very well behaved. Being in a pound situation, he only gets to go out at most twice a day for about 20minutes. He does pull a bit when he first goes out because he is very housebroken and needs to get down to biz. He is very good about keeping his run clean. Very good!

These are new pictures of this handsome boy showing off his handsome new look! He came in with skin issues but with healthy food and some good care, he has blossomed into the handsomest man! And look at those eyes...they look deep into your soul. He has also become very fond of squeeky toys....just loves them. He grins when he finds one! This smiling boy would fit into many home situations, tho no cats please. A nice walk, perhaps a fenced yard where he can go around and sniff and squeek on his latest toy, and then a snuggle on the couch. Movies? Football?

He loves it all as long as he is snuggled next to his peeps. Please, do you have room for this fine man? He will make you feel like the most loved hooman ever.

He will turn heads with his charming personality and southern good looks! Come visit him and I bet he will turn yours!

Even tho this handsome fella is at the Gloucester County Pound, his adoption would be administered by the local humane society. Please contact Brooke at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina to learn more or to apply to meet him and take him home as your very own lovebug!

You will not be sorry!

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.

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.

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!

UPDATE:
Our cutie pie, Bubbs, is still with us after more than 100 days. He is anxious to find himself a new and furever home, and we are anxious to help him do just that. He is one of the most deserving boys we have ever met. He is a striking shiny black, and is on the smaller side for his breed. He also has the cutest puggish face. He does tend to be dog selective, but also has his buddies.

Bubbs loves people and will lean into the gate to get as close to you as possible to get a nice scratch, and perhaps a nice treat.

He gives sweet kisses readily, and loves to go for walks. He is housebroken, and so when he first gets out, he does pull even tho he does walk well on a leash. He is anxious to get his biz done, so he can move on to sniffing and walking. He loves being with people, so he gets very excited and happy when you come to his run and he knows it's his turn. He will make someone a devoted and happy companion.

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

Introducing Apollo!

Apollo was originally picked up as a stray running loose. His owner contacted us to let us know that she wasn’t able to properly care for him anymore and wanted to do the right thing. So she came on down and signed him over so we can find him another family that would love him as much as she loved him.

So what we know is he is 8 years old and full of life! He enjoys being outside and loves to stand in the water.

He is very clean about his kennel and appears to like other dogs (meet and greets required).

Jumper

Jumper is an amazing 3 year old Pit Bull.

He got his name because he can jump super high. Jumper will chase a ball, but he’s not very good at bringing them back to you.

Jumper does well with some dogs and some dogs not so well. So meet and greets are a must.

Let's give him a CHANCE to find the home he has always deserved!!

Meet our darling young man Chance. He was abandoned at our facility after hours and had been tied to our shelter fence. Now, he is in search of his happily ever after.

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!

If you think you have room for this Hunk, please contact here at the shelter (804) 520-9397.
