Pet of the Week From the Animal Shelter
This sweet Lab male was left tied to the front of the shelter in January. He is so ready to be back in a home again, one that doesn't leave him abandoned at the shelter.
Nicknamed Preacher because he tells the other dogs to be quiet when they get loud and carried away. He is around 3 years old. Be sure to use his animal ID number which is in the video below if you call the shelter to get information about him.
Watch another great video of these pups playing on our You Tube Channel.
If you have recently lost a dog you can see the latest photos posted on the Animal Care and Adoption Center's Facebook page.
The animal shelter has three basic areas for dogs: The intake area where the kennels for the dogs are listed as "HP" which stands for Hold Pending. When dogs first arrive at the shelter, this is where they go first. The next area is the lower building that is attached to the adoption floor by a long hallway. The lower building is usually called the Stray building and the kennels are listed with a "S" in front of the numbered cage. In that building there are 15 stray kennels, with another five kennels set aside behind a gate often used for bite cases. Those kennels are marked as "OB." This area is often used for overflow when there aren't any bite cases. The area that most people see is the Adoption Floor. The kennels on the adoption floor are marked with a "D" in front of the cage number. That stands for Dog.
