DARKE COUNTY — This week’s “Adoptable Pet” features a lovable dog from the Darke County Animal Shelter in need of a caring home.
Say hello to Shelby! Shelby came to the shelter as a stray, so knowledge about her is limited to only what staff have observed. Shelby is believed to be a two-year-old female Shepherd mix. She is a shy girl who will need some time to get used to her new owner(s). Shelby has demonstrated she knows how to sit and shake, and she loves treats! Shelby walks well on a leash and doesn’t mind the other dogs at the shelter. She did great for her nail trim, bath, and exam where Shelby weighed in at 46.2 pounds and was given Bordatella, parvo/lepto/distemper vaccines, dewormed, microchipped, and found to be heartworm negative.
Adoptions are $90 cash/check. Visiting hours are Monday through Friday 8 to 11:45 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m.; Saturday closed for all but adoption appointments only.
Appointments may be pre-booked for Saturday at 30-minute increments to view a particular dog. If a Saturday appointment is made, please verify on Friday afternoon the dog is still available as the shelter will not hold dogs until the time of an appointment.
Come in to meet Shelby and all the other adoptable dogs at the Darke County Animal Shelter located at 5066 County Home Road in Greenville. Have another dog? Bring him or her along for a “meet and greet!” For more information, contact shelter staff at 937-547-1645 during normal business hours.
