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).

Bones

Bones has been here at the shelter since September 2020 looking for a forever home with no luck When Bones was picked up he was very skinny (hence the name ) and had a tumor on his chest. Recently our amazing friends at @ringdogrescue had his tumor removed, neutered, microchipped, and gave him all his shots hoping that this would give him a better chance at being adopted.

Bones is very clean about his kennel, loves to roll in the grass, and is food motivated. Ring Dog Rescue has also had him out on pack walks where he has done very well being around other dogs (but still requires meet and greets). Bones loves people once he is properly introduced to them. He would do best in a home with older children.

Jimmy Kibble

This is Jimmy

He’s a handsome pup who we estimate to be about 2 to 3 years old. He has no know medical as he was just passed along to a citizen from someone off the street.

He knows how to sit for treats and does really well on a leash. Jimmy appears high energy in his kennel but once out and about he tires quickly! He loves to lay in the grassy shade and stretch out into his famous frog leg position! He has no issues walking with other dogs, but a meet and greet will be 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.

Hi, I’m Saint⚜️. I’m a 17 month old, neutered male, pittie mix. I’m all 68 lbs of goofiness and love

I’m great at listening, I know several commands. I even know how to walk myself. I love walks with friends and going to the river. Chew toys are the best, and I’ll be your coffee drinking buddy, any day, all day, all week, month forever!

I was first rescued at 6 months old, tied up in front of a house. I was scared and I didn’t like being alone to fend for myself. I was rescued again at 11 months old by some nice ladies. I was loved but my environment was all wrong. I was scared and stressed out. I’ve been living with my foster Mama for 7 months. I also live with two dogs and and two cats. Mama says I’m ready to find my forever home. I really like my own toys and my food is my food when it comes to my four legged friends. Not a problem, Mama feeds us in separate rooms and we don’t play with toys together.

I’ve spent time with two really great trainer friends that have given me the skills to do this life thing. They both say what a good boy I am.
I need a home with No Children, they scare me. I thrive best in a calm home with an owner that values training. Continued training is a MUST. I have been failed too many times for things could have been managed if someone had taken the time understand my needs. My little circle of people that love and advocate for me are requiring this. I am young, so I would love an active home but I am very capable of chilling out while you read or watch t.v. as long as I am as close as possible to you. My Mama says an owner with pitty experience who understands my breed would be my best match.
Current on all vaccines, neutered and takes monthly preventative
No children in home
Experienced dog / bully breed owner preferred that values training
Best as only dog in home but can have friends with proper introduction
Friendly with dog savvy cats, slow intros are paramount as this can be a case by case, cat by cat situation

Are you looking for an angel on your shoulder? How about one at your side? This is Angel. A more appropriately named dog you have never met. She is an angel through and through. She loves everyone, both two legged and four legged. Here at the pound, she stops at every gate to give a nice sniff and waggy tail . She is one of those dogs that just melts into you when you give her affection. And, she is so pretty, and a nice medium size. She will make a family or anyone, a super special friend.

She is healthy and well adjusted and ready to move in with her own lucky family.

Angel came in with an old injury to her front leg, which causes her not to put weight on it. She isn't painful for her and she has adjusted to it well, and it doesn't bother her at all. A local vet has examined her and feels she does not need it removed, as it causes her no problems. It is a pretty white paw, just like the other three. And, she can still run like crazy when she wants to play. She is currently living at the Gloucester County, Virginia Animal Control Shelter.

If you are interested in taking Angel home and making her your own, we can set up a consult with the vet to answer any other questions you might have.

For more information or to apply for her adoption, please email Brooke at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

Meet our little friend, Bubbs! He practically BUBBLES over with excitement and would love to bring excitement to your life too. He is so happy to see everyone and get the loving attention he deserves. He just wants to please his people and enjoy life. He is looking for a person who wants to enjoy life and an active lifestyle with him. Bubbs has the playful nature of a puppy but is also housebroken, walks well on a leash and takes treats gently. Oh and so handsome...did I mention handsome? Sadly, when Bubbs was in his former home, he got into an argument with another dog and the person trying to break them up was bitten. We have seen no aggression at all from him since being at the pound. He loves being with people and would rather be with them than alone in his run.

Are you ready to add some excitement to your life? Please come meet Bubbs, the bubbly guy who will keep you entertained and laughing. All adoptions are administered through the local Gloucester Mathews Humane Society.

Please contact Brooke at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina to get more info or to set up an appointment to meet this fine young fella. Thank you for helping a homeless dog.

Hi there, My name is Chico! I am a big guy looking for a strong new hooman who can play games with me, walk long walks and teach me what I need to know to be the best lap dog ever. I also like to give big slobbery kisses. I came to the pound as a stray and I haven't been able to tell the nice people my whole story. But here is what they say....Chico is an energetic young man of 4. He is smart, playful, happy, and really wants to please. He needs someone who appreciates the enthusiasm of this fine breed and is willing to help him be the very best he can be. You will be rewarded many times over with a true and loyal friend for life.

Sadly, Chico has tested positive for heart worms. He appears to be overall healthy and will be treated for them. The cost and administration will be covered by the local humane society. Before he is finished with his treatment, he can go to his new home under an agreement called a foster to adopt. This is often done when animals are being treated for an issue but it is best for them to be out of the pound.

If you find you would like to meet this handsome young man....and I guarantee you he wants to meet you, please contact Brooke at gro.yteicosenamuhmg@tnemecalplamina

She can answer any further questions you have and set up a meet and greet.
Thank you for helping a homeless dog.
Chico says...I can't wait to meet my new peeps!!!

Charlie is a very sweet boy. He is a pocket pit that we call chicken nugget. He is dog friendly but can get a little rowdy if he really likes his playmates. He is cat friendly. He can be shy so it could take him a while to warm up to a new human but once he does he is the biggest lover. Charlie has been coming to daycare with us since 2017 and was even trained here! He has been surrendered to us by his owner.
