Posted Breed: Shiba Inu / Mixed (medium coat). Shogun is a very people-oriented, little dog. He looks like a Shiba Inu, but we are not certain if he is a purebred. He looks "foxy" and has a rough, water-proof type coat. Shogun came to us as a stray, so we do not know his past. He gets jealous very easily and DOES NOT like men, children, and doesn't like it when other animals steal the attention away from him. He thinks he has to be the center of attention. Shogun will pop up on your lap and guards that position. Shogun needs to be in a home all by himself, without any other pets, children, and especially without men. The vet thinks Shogun was born in 2010 and he weighs 20 pounds. He is up-to-date on vaccinations and is neutered. Shogun LOVES attention and can be so much fun. He likes a lot of one-on-one time, so he would probably not like being left alone for extended periods. Shogun is a good yodeler; he "sings" with the other dogs in the kennels.

The Humane Society of Richland - Wilkin Counties (HSRWC) reserves the right to decline adoption of any animal for any reason if it feels that the home will not be a good match.

We adopt to homes that are the best fit for our animals' needs and not on a first-come/first-serve basis.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Pixie

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever (short coat). Pixie is a black Labrador Retriever who was found in Breckenridge, and was born on 7-18-2013. She loves pets, hugs, and loves. Pixie's housebroken and appears to know basic commands. We think that she might have been trained for hunting, but she is very skittish about noises and quick movements. Pixie seems to be used to being kenneled, but we think that a couch or a bed could change her mind about what is comfortable. It's obvious that she has had puppies in the past. Pixie is up to date on vaccinations and spayed. She was very skittish and cautious when she was brought in to us, but is now a lot more comfortable with her surroundings. Pixie loves to play fetch, be outside in the fence with the other dogs, and snuggle. She appreciates all the attention someone can give her! If Pixie sounds like a dog who could become a member of your family, please come out to the shelter and visit her and all her new furry friends! They will love you for it!

      Breed: Samoyed-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Samoyed / Mixed (long coat). Sammy is a very sweet, medium-sized, white dog with long, wavy fur like a Kuvasz. He also has floppy ears with golden brown markings on them. We think he might be a Samoyed mix. Our veterinarian says that Sammy was born in 2006. Sammy was surrendered to us after his human moved to a nursing home. He never went outside at his old home, but is beginning to really enjoy being out in the fence at our shelter. Right now, Sammy is clingy and submissive, as he is getting used to shelter life and new friends. He LOVES kids... absolutely LOVES them! He gets along well with people and our other dogs (so far.) Sammy has probably never met a cat, so we're unsure if he'd be okay with cats. Sammy is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. His indoor accidents are getting less and he is going potty outside more and more. If you think this handsome old guy might fit into your life, please give him try!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). If Faya could talk, her first words would be "PLAY BALL". Faya is a Pitbull and German Shepherd mix who was born in December 2015. She mostly looks like a Pitbull, except she has very long, pointed ears. One ear stands up and the other ear salutes. Faya has light brown and brindle-colored fur with a white chest. She is on the thin side right now, after having 8 puppies in June 2017, and she weighs 37 pounds. She was surrendered with her baby, Rocko, and they play tug-o-war with each other with toys and balls. Did we mention that she loves to play fetch? Faya's housebroken, up to date on vaccinations, and spayed. She walks well on a leash and appears to get along with everyone (dog or human). We do not think that a cat would be safe with her. Faya is a very bright and playful dog. If Faya sounds like the perfect missing member of your family, why not come out to the shelter and play ball with her! She can play and play and play!

      Posted Breed: Maltese / Shih Tzu / Mixed (medium coat). Casey is a Maltese and Shih Tzu mix who was born in 2011. This means he's small, white, and he has an under bite. Casey is a friendly little guy who does well on a leash. When Casey was first brought to our shelter, he had some accidents in his kennel. As of 8-25-17, we've noticed that he hasn't had as many accidents, but he does like to tip over his water bowl quite a bit. Casey's neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you think this little guy might be for you and you have the patience to work on his potential potty problems, please come out to the shelter and check out Casey!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Twister is a sweet and friendly Beagle who was born in 2010. She loves people, kids, and other dogs. We don't know what she thinks about cats. Twister has the prerequisite extra "Beagle brain" in her nose. She is ruled by the scents she picks up and will follow them instead of you. Twister-- in other words-- needs a fenced-in yard, or else she will be wandering far and wide. She is also quite proficient in digging holes. She has issues with potty-training; she can hold her urine for only a couple hours. Twister's up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. If you think this gal is for you, please come out to the shelter and check her out! She loves to play and cuddle! Her big Beagle ears need a lot of scratching and full body massages are always welcome! For more information, please call The Humane Society of Richland-Wilkin Counties at 701-672-1676.
