Breed: Mixed breed

Sex: Male

Neutered: Yes

Age: 5 years approx

Size: Medium

Color: Tan

Coat: Long-haired

Children: Not suitable for a home with children

Cats: Afraid of cats

Notes: We guess Jake's age is 5 years but as he needed some significant dental work done upon us receiving him we cannot be sure of his age. He weighs around 46 pounds. He is easily spooked and terrified of kids. When we bring Jake out, he walks the same path around the room over and and over. He loves treats and has started taking them from some of us, but he will not eat in front of humans, he waits until we leave the area. If there is a dog in the home, he would do best with one that is calm. Jake needs someone with patience and love to show him that people can be kind and that life can be beautiful. If you think you are the person to help Jake discover a beautiful life through adoption or fostering, please reach out to us.

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.

  • Normal adoption fee for a dog is $100 and for a cat is $50 (cash or check, non-refundable). Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccines including Rabies, worming, flea treatment and 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.
  • To adopt a dog you must be 18 years of age or older.
  • You must provide a picture ID with a current address at the time of the adoption.
  • Each pet is required to be vaccinated for rabies within seven days of adoption, if it is four months of age or older. Rabies vaccination is required for each pet, upon turning four months of age.
  • Every new owner of a pet adopted from Mason County Animal Shelter shall have the pet sterilized within thirty days of the pet turning six months of age, or within thirty days if the pet is over six months of age.
  • Out of state adoptions must be spayed or neutered before leaving West Virginia.
  • Return of the proper paperwork (sterilization and rabies certificates) is required within seven days of sterilization.
  • State law requires that all dogs and cats be vaccinated for rabies.
