Looking to adopt, please check out the adoptable pets of the week!

 

NAME: Ruby
SHELTER: https://www.rescueleague.org/dogs
BREED: Hound/Mix
GENDER: Female
AGE: 3 Years 7 Months
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Just your fun loving, ball chasing hound here!
The name is Ruby and my all time favorite game is fetch!

I am a wonderful lady looking for a place to call my own. I would absolutely adore a fenced in yard, but that is not a must. I will need to learn some leash manners as I can pull really hard when I walk on a leash. I would also benefit from basic training. I was not taught much in my previos home or socialized very well.

I am not a fan of other dogs. I would love a home where I am the only animal. I want all the attention, and all the tennis balls. I would also do well living with older kids.

If you’re looking for a hound to play fetch with, please ask about me! 

NAME: Amos
SHELTER: https://www.rescueleague.org/dogs
BREED: Coonhound/Mix
GENDER: Male
AGE: 7 Years 6 Months
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Hi there!
I’m Amos. I’m a super sweet guy full of wiggles and energy. I LOVE to run, play, and use my nose, as to be expected from a hound. I can be a little nervous around men, but generally I warm up pretty quickly and show my goober side. I have lived with cats and dogs before, so I am open to doing the same, but any future doggy roommates would need to come meet me to make sure we get along. I am open to living with calm, older children as well!

There is one thing you should know about me- I do not like to be alone. My dream home would have someone home all the time. I was surrendered because I would get upset when I was left alone, leading to some destructive behaviors. I am a really good boy, and I would be great for someone who is home a lot or could take me along with them on their adventures. I love to exercise and I am a goofy boy who is sure to make you laugh.

Please, ask about me!

NAME: Gage
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Pit Bull Terrier
GENDER: Male
AGE: 4
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Hi there! My name is Gage. I am about 4 years old and I am looking for someone special to fall in love with me! I love everyone so I know we will be a match made in heaven. My history is a little sad but I am looking forward to my future. I was rescued with multiple other animals and now it’s my turn to find my furever home! Even though I lived with other animals before I haven’t found one here at the shelter that I get along with so, for now, I think I need to be your one and only. I am very sweet and jump right up on you for hugs and pets. I need to learn some manners because I like to jump up on the counters too, shh! I have never received any formal training, which the staff here tell me I need to become the best boy I can be in my new home. I get very rough when I am playing with toys and zooming around the room so no young kids for me either please. Are you looking for a buddy to spend your days with hiking and learning new things?! I am! I love to be outside running around chasing balls and playing in the dirt. Which is great because I need some work with my house training too. If you have room in your home and your heart for a love bug like me stop by the shelter during open hours to meet me!

NAME: Jaxson
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Hound/Terrier Mix
GENDER: Male
AGE: 7
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: 

Hey there! My name is Jaxson and I am looking for my forever home. Actually I am well overdue for one. Can you believe I was returned after more than 5 years?! I was adopted at 9 months and then BAM! Here I am back at the shelter at 7 years old. I was devastated and so was everyone at the shelter. I am doing better now and when you meet me you will be just as perplexed as to why I am here.

I am a sensitive boy. I don’t like to be alone. I am, after all, a pack animal. It is in my DNA to be with others. What can I say? I love people and other dogs. I would do best with an adopter that works from home or is retired. Or perhaps you have another dog to keep me company? I would like that too! The world is a big, scary, place and wouldn’t we all like a steady companion to help us get through the day? I am no different. I don’t even mind those weird-looking dogs that you call ‘cats’.

I am definitely one of the sweetest boys at the shelter. I have a gentle way about me whether it’s taking treats or giving kisses. Yes, I need to be in the company of others BUT I’m not up in your face all the time either. Give me a kong and I will go off and enjoy it on my bed. I prefer peanut butter as a filling just for future reference. I like to play too! Anything that squeaks is good enough for me. These things also help me deal with any uneasy feelings and keep me busy. I’m good on a leash and I listen well. I make an excellent walking partner and I enjoy daily strolls just about anywhere.

I really am a great dog. Yes I have a quirk about being alone but it’s manageable and my pros greatly outweigh my anxiety. I’ll go for walks or lay on the couch. I’ll play with my toys or just chill and watch Amazon Prime. I like other dogs, I love people and I don’t mind cats! Kids in the home should be 10 and up. So really what more could you ask for?! If I sparked your interest, please stop by the shelter to ask about me! I’m usually in the office doing toy inventory.

NAME: Hank
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Coonhound
GENDER: Male
AGE: 5
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Do you hear that? It’s me calling out to my forever family! My name is Hank, but around here they call me Honk! I’m your typical hound dog. I am 5 years old and weigh about 80 pounds. I am a lot of puppy, but that means more fun, more love and more laughs. I was surrendered to the shelter because small children make me nervous. So no kids for me thanks!

I am a very active boy. If you are looking for a running partner or a hiking buddy, I’m your dude! My idea of fun is trailing a good scent in the great outdoors and chasing the occasional squirrel. Okay, it’s more than the “occasional” squirrel, but that’s the hound in me! I am an excellent co-piolet too! I love a good car ride. I can’t wait to stick my head out the window and let my ears fly! Bring on the adventure!

Exercise is important but I do enjoy a good cuddle too. It is imperative my new home has a spot for me on the couch. Couches are best for napping in my opinion or a king-size bed. I’ll take either one. I am super affectionate and I don’t enjoy being alone for too long. I need to be part of the family, that’s where I belong! I have been playing with some of the other dogs here at the shelter and they are so much fun! I am still learning my own strength and proper playtime etiquette though. I could live with another dog but nothing too energetic, I am looking for a friendly passive pup that I can spend my days with. Feline friends, on the other hand, are a no-go for me. I forget cats are friends, not toys!

I’m just looking for a home that I will be comfortable in, a place I can grow and learn to be the dog I am meant to be! My adopters should be patient with me when I am unsure or lack confidence. It can take me a little to settle into new situations, but I will get there! It wouldn’t hurt to have knowledge in hound breeds and all that encompasses. I am a very vocal dog and there’s no way around that. Apartment living isn’t ideal for me, or your neighbors. 🙂 I would really love a yard to run around in too! Children in the home need to be 15 or older. Are you a diehard hound lover? Do you want a four-legged- friend to add to your active lifestyle? Stop by and meet me today… I’ll be baying for you!

NAME: Maple
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Domestic Short Hair
GENDER: Female
AGE: 9
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Hi everyone, my name is Maple, and I am a 9 year young girl who would love to shower you with love! I am mostly black, with some white fur on me here and there, and a locket of white on my chest.

I love to lay in the sun and take nice long catnaps on a super soft blanket every afternoon. I am a good listener, and all of your secrets would be safe with me. I would love to find myself a quiet home where I could be your only princess; no other cats or children for me in my new home please.

My age makes me available at the shelter’s senior adoption rate of $35.00, and if you are over the age of 65, the rate goes down to $25.00.

Please come in and visit me; I can’t wait to tell you what an awesome girl that I am! Xoxo, Maple

NAME: Chuck
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Domestic Short Hair
GENDER: Male
AGE: 8+
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Hello everyone, my name is Chuck, and I’ve been waiting all my life for you to come in and meet me! I am an 8 year young fella who acts a lot younger than my age. I also have a bit of a problem seeing, although that doesn’t slow me down one bit.

I am such a personable guy who loves attention and enjoys being pet. My ideal family would be one without children, although I would enjoy the company of another cat in my new home. If I sound like your purrfect cat, then come into the shelter and meet me soon.

My age (8+) makes me available at our Senior Adoption Rate of $35.00. I am currently being housed in the Roy Building here at the shelter, so please be sure to mention this to the volunteer who assists you. I can’t wait until we meet!

NAME: Cody
SHELTER: https://www.rescueleague.org/dogs
BREED: Hound
GENDER: Male (Fixed)
AGE: 7
STORY: Hi there, I’m Cody! I am a big handsome hound fella who has found himself at the shelter! I am a really sweet guy, and I like pretty much everyone I meet! When I get excited, I do the goofiest prance that is pretty hard not to fall in love with, if I do say so myself.
Here’s the thing about me–I am not an independent dude. I don’t do well on my own! I get very very attached to my people, and I have what they call “separation anxiety”. I really just want to be wherever you are! Ideally, my perfect home would be with folks who worked from home, or maybe could take me to work with them! I get very stressed and sad when I am alone, so a home with folks who are away often won’t work for me. I know this might be a lot to ask, but I promise I’m worth it. Everyone I know loves me! I am really a chill dude when my people are around, I’m pretty low key and go-with-the-flow.
I am not the biggest fan of dogs, I tolerate them but prefer they leave me be. I could perhaps live with a dog who felt the same and left me alone, but dogs who want to play with me are a no-go. As far as kids go, I think 14 and up would be the best for me.
If you are a homebody- you might be the one for me!

NAME: Biggie
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Pit Bull Terrier
GENDER: Male
AGE: Adult
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Hello folks! It’s Biggie here aka Mr. Biggs and I am searching for my forever home. As you can see I am a Pit Bull Terrier and 70 pounds of lovebug! The past few weeks have been a rollercoaster! Some good folks scooped me up in the city and eventually, I found my way to the shelter. Let me tell you, I have had it with all this moving around. I need consistency and a place to call my own!

I need a person in my life. One that is mine and only mine. Someone dedicated to me and my wellbeing. Someone who will encourage me when I need help and comfort me in times of uncertainty. In return, you will have my unconditional love and loyalty. My desire is to be someone’s shadow. I will follow you where ever you go. Let’s go for a ride in the car! Let me grab my stick and we can go play! Having a bad day? I’ll just plant myself beside you and listen. You will never be alone! I will be your best friend and confidant. I want you to need me as much as I need you.

I am a sensitive boy, but I am a giant puppy at heart! I love to play! Plush toys and squeakies are no match for me! Give me a strong rope toy and watch me tug! I do love to chew on nylabones too. It keeps me busy and my teeth look beautiful! Just look at my winning smile! I am an active pooch so exercise is a must! After a solid playtime, I turn into a lap dog. Yes, I will sit all 70 pounds on your lap… or at least try. I need that affection and close contact and I am not afraid to ask for it.

So what does my ideal home look like? My adopter should be patient and willing to work with me so I can get some skills down like walking well on a leash. No one taught me the basics so I am just now learning how to be a dog. I shouldn’t be alone for long periods of time at least until I am more comfortable in my new home. An apartment dwelling will not suit me. I also need space to run around. A fenced-in yard would be best since my leash skills are sub-par. I do need to be the only pet and any kids need to be 15 and older. I need someone to give me a chance to become the dog I am meant to be! Are you the home for me?! Come by the shelter and meet me today!

**Biggie is only to be shown by staff. Staff is available at these times:**

Mon: 12-4
Tues: 12-6
Thurs: 12-6

Past Adoptable Pets of the Week Still In Need of Forever Homes

NAME: Buster
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Pit Bull Terrier
GENDER: Male
AGE: 2
FIXED: Yes
STORY: Hello there folks! I know you are dying to find out who this handsome boy is, aren’t you?! My name is Buster with the big, beautiful head! I am a 60 pound Pit Bull Terrier that is just 2-years-old! I got my whole life ahead of me so I am on a mission to find my people and really start living.

I came to the shelter as a stray, so my past is a bit of a mystery. I was a tad nervous when I arrived but day by day I broke out of my shell. The caretakers here are amazing! They’ve shown me I can trust people and I gain more confidence every day! I am still very much a puppy so I need to be allowed time to learn and grow. I am a curious mind that needs to explore and have fun. I LOVE TO PLAY! I will play all day every day and I enjoy when people join in the fun with me. I am a tug-of-war champion and I am working on my fetch game. Oh and watch me chew! I am considered a “power chewer” so I need a strong toy. A Nylabone or a Kong are a couple of my favorites. Don’t get me wrong I get a kick out of a squeaker toy but they’re no match for me. I am just a silly baby at heart and my adopter will have a blast with me!

I do require cuddles a minimum of 3 times a day. I will let you know usually by staring at you with my doe eyes and slobbering your face affectionately. There must be space for me on the sofa or I wouldn’t mind having my own chair, preferably a recliner. That way I can really stretch out for belly rubs and back scratches. I can’t wait to have my very own spot to curl up on and my very own person to snuggle with!

I should not be living with other four-legged family members at this time. I can walk past other pooches but having them in my personal bubble makes me a bit anxious. Feline friends are hit or miss for me so, for now, I’m going to have to pass. Any children in the home should be at least 13.

I am truly a great dog. I am the best of both worlds. I can cuddle all day and stay by your side. But I can also entertain myself. Give me a toy and I’ll just stay busy in my crate. I love to play. I love to nap. I am an easy-going dude that just needs a family to love me! Are you my family? Come by the shelter and meet me today!

NAME: Tex – One Cute Cowboy!
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Domestic Short Hair
GENDER: Male
AGE: 4
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Tex is a 4 year old male tuxedo with short fur. He would love to go to a home with another laid back cat! He’s showed us that he can be a bit protective of those he’s friendly with, so if you have a cat that needs a buddy that will have their back, Tex might be your guy! Stop in to meet this handsome boy. He is currently housed in our Roy Building, so please be sure to ask for him by name.


NAME: Brutus
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Domestic Short Hair
GENDER: Male
AGE: 5
FIXED:  Yes
STORY: Brutus is a super-sized, handsome fella who is hoping to be home for the Holidays. He’s 5 years old, and he has a gorgeous gray coat that has a lovely silver-gray cast to it.

He’s a big boy, but he carries himself well, and all he needs right now is a nice warm bed to sleep in, and some good food to keep him full. He gets along with other cats, and older, respectful kids are okay with him too. Brutus is a laid back sort of guy, and he’d love to guard your house for you as he naps the day away.

If your looking for a big mush of a cat to love, then come in and ask to meet Brutus. He loves visitors, and can’t wait to meet you!

NAME: Nevaeh
SHELTER: https://www.manchesteranimalshelter.org/browse-pets/
BREED: Boxer Mix
GENDER: Female
AGE: ~10
FIXED:  Yes
STORY:  Hi, it’s Nevaeh here!
She may be almost 10 years old but she is a free spirit and a puppy at heart!! Nevaeh is a very sweet girl! Don’t let her age fool you – she has plenty of great energy! Her only request is that I’m your one and only pet, cats, dogs, and children are too much for me. She wants her people all to herself! She was originally abandoned at the shelter’s front door and was severely emaciated. All that she wants is a nice comfy home to spend the rest of her years!

Come by the shelter to meet her!
