Notes: Cherrie, Mixed Breed, 8 years, Female, Large. Miss Cherrie has quickly won over our hearts and we just know she would win over yours too. Come on down and meet this sweet girl. Timid but starting to open up. Walks well on a leash, would do best in a calmer environment with someone who has the patience and love to give Cherrie a home that will make her feel secure.

FOSTER NEEDED: Cherrie is a sweet dog who is just learning how to be a dog. Some extra love would do her wonderful. Getting the dogs out for an afternoon, a day, weekend, month, not only benefits the dog but also provides information about the their character for prospective adopters. While fostering, the shelter provides all food and medical care, so the expense for you is nothing but love and time.

ONE BY ONE

One by one, they pass by my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, they say
Way past his time, he can’t run and play
They shake their heads and go on their way
A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems that I am wanted no more
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong
I got in their way, my attitude wrong
Now I sit in this kennel, where day after day
The younger ones are chosen and taken away
When I had come to the end of my rope
You saw my face and again I knew hope
You saw past the grey, the legs wobbly with age
And felt I deserved life beyond this cage
You took me home, gave me food and a bed
You gently stroked my poor tired head
We snuggle and play, you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, and make sure I know
Although I have lived most of my life with another
You outshine them with a love so much stronger
I promise to return all the love I can give
To you my dear friend, as long as I live
I may be with you for a week, or for years
We will share many smiles, and a few tears
When the time comes, that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve
When I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all who will hear
Of the person who made my last days so dear.

To adopt you must be at least 18 years of age and provide a current ID.

You must complete an Adoption Application form and pass reference checks before you can take a dog home.

See the Adoption Information here.

Most of our dogs are strays, therefore we can only guess whether they are good with other animals or children by observing the behavior of the animal in the kennel and their interaction with the shelter staff.

  • Adoption fee for a dog is $100 and for a cat is $50 (cash or check, non-refundable). Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, first vaccines including Rabies, worming, flea treatment and for dogs a microchip.
  • Dogs can be adopted out of state with the proper identification required (see below), unless they have not been spayed/neutered, in which case they are restricted to residents of Mason and adjacent counties (Mason, Cabell, Putnam, Jackson County). West Virginia law requires that all dogs and cats adopted from the animal shelter are spayed/neutered.
