Adoptable Dogs

If you have a pet that you would like to have adopted, please complete a Courtesy Post Contract. Then, please send us the following information. Pet's name, sex, breed, Age (approximate birth date), description, whether spayed or neutered, whether up-to-date on inoculations, housebroken, general personality, how well the animal gets along with other animals and children, whether or not the animal has been de clawed, and whether or not the animal is an indoor pet or outdoor pet, and how to reach you. Send this information along with any other information, as well as photos to mewoof@bellsouth.net

I always prefer to adopt an older dog simply because they are calmer, are over their chewy tendencies, and someone else has usually house trained them for you!!! Carol West - RCHS Webmaster
