Nyx is a great guy. As a volunteer I spend time with him weekly. He's sweet and lovable.

Looks like a Beagle. We rescued a beagle, she is so intelligent, asked to go outside, she sits and wait for me to get my coat and shoes on. She does have really bad anxiety, from her abuser. We are working on that. She loves to play and sleep. Anyone who adopts this guy be ready to laugh, mine has kept us going.

That’s a beautiful video💖praying his future owner is watching!!🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Is he still available? Is there any room for $ help in transport? Is he HW +? Age?

Thank you all so much for the inquiries about JP. Were happy to report, that JP was adopted, the day after a post was made. We have been contacted by multiple rescues about this one particular guy. JP was *one* of tons, that are in need. Every shelter and rescue are in need of adopters and/or fosters for these types of dogs. Reach out to them, help a dog become a dog again. 
Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the update! I'm so happy for him. I cried so much seeing his despair in that picture. I hope he never knows another time like that and that all his days are filled with overwhelming love. ❤️

So happy some one adopted him.I adopted a lonely little girl from the shelter and she has given me so much love and still is she is a mix of chiwawa and fiest and great love

This is what a dog looks like after you have owned him for awhile and then decide you don’t want him anymore. A dog is a commitment to keep forever. Think about this picture when you go to give them up. So sad !!!

Couldn’t stop thinking of this dog, I’m so glad he was adopted ❤️ Would love to see pics of him happy 😊

I love seeing the after pics. Makes my heart happy

Thank you so much with the updates of your pups ..❤️💯❤️💯❤️

So happy for JP!

I messaged about sebastian

Dogs and cats arent the only animals we have at the shelter. We also from time to time, have small animals. Meet Matilda! She is a small guinea pig, female and looking for another female to be friends with. Guinea pigs are herd animals and need buddies. Matilda is all by herself and needs to be adopted to home where she has guinea pig friends.
