Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Motley was brought to the shelter by city workers when he was found running loose. He is a precious Staffie who was just terrified when he arrived at the shelter. He quickly warmed up to staff and turned into a big wiggly lovebug! Motley is about 1.5 years old and weighs 45 lbs. He has been neutered. Motley does not care for children (they make him nervous) and should not go to a home with children under 16. He appears to ignore cats and he seems afraid of other dogs so he would probably be most comfortable with other submissive animals or be the only pet. Motley has been through a lot in his short life and would thrive in a stable, secure home filled with love. As scared as he was, he never attempted to bite staff, but any animal who has been through trauma should be treated with patience and gentleness. Motley has already shown he will repay kindness with lots of love and kisses!! Motley's adoption fee is only $60. Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for dogs over 4 months is $120.00. Puppies under 4 months are $140.00 The adoption fee includes the animal's surgery, microchip, vaccinations, flea preventative, deworming medication, sample bag of food/treat samples and a free first exam with participating veterinarians. Shelter policy is that all animals must be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter. Our shelter is open to the public on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm and other times by appointment. If you would like to make an appointment to meet one of our many adoptable animals, please send an email to us at pvchs@joink.com.

More About Staffordshire Bull Terrier Breed
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.

      Age: Adult
      Location: Hillsdale, IN
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Collie / Mixed (short coat). Lana came from a "rescue" that was shut down by local authorities. She is a sweet lab/collie mix who is around 3 years old and weighs 43 lbs. Lana is up to date on vaccines, spayed, and ready to find her loving forever family today. Lana was obviously injured at some point in the past as her muzzle is off-kilter. Her nose crooks to the side and part of her mouth appears paralyzed--but she eats, barks and plays like nothing is wrong so we will just follow her example :) Lana can be a bit on the nervous side and we do not feel she would be comfortable in a home with young children. She LOVES other dogs and appears to be fine with cats. Lana is hoping for a family that will love her for life, despite her rough beginning! She is only $20, so please come rescue sweet Lana from the shelter today! Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for dogs over 4 months is $120.00.

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Spunky was found in the receiving pen when staff arrived at the shelter one morning. He is a cute lil lab mix who is about 1 year old and weighs 26 lbs. He is fully grown, so he is probably mixed with min pin or something small! Spunky adores people and would be great with kids (he does need some training to teach him manners!) He acts like a stinker with other dogs and cats so he would do well as an only pet, or in an experienced home that can teach him how to behave! He is a very loving little guy who would be a great addition to a home that will exercise him and teach him proper doggie manners. Spunky is up to date on vaccines and will be neutered before joining his forever family. UPDATE: 8/30/16 Spunky has been neutered and has been selected to join the Rockville Correctional Facility ADOPT program to learn basic obedience, social skills and housetraining. He is expected to graduate in late November and is available for adoption reservation through the shelter. His adoption fee is $150.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Hillsdale, IN
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Winchester was surrendered with his mom when his owners could no longer care for them. His mom was a 12 lb Chihuahua and got adopted quickly. Winchester looks like he is mixed with terrier and weighs 25 lbs. He is up to date on vaccines and has been neutered. Winchester was not socialized or worked with in his original home and is very wary of strangers. He would do well in a foster home to learn to adjust to new environments so that he can be ready for adoption. He gets along with most dogs and cats, but is not suited for a home with children. He will nip out of fear if cornered or grabbed! Once Winchester has warmed up, he is a very loving boy and likes to jump on your lap. He is very affectionate and we know he would be a wonderful companion to the right person or people. He just needs to learn the world is not a scary place :( Please contact the shelter today if you would like to help this sweet boy! His adoption is only $60. **UPDATE 03/2016: Winchester went to a foster home and happened to get away from the foster family. It took staff two days to catch him again. It is now a requirement that he goes to a home with a fenced yard to prevent the same thing from happening! After 2-3 weeks Winchester bonds enough to people to come to them but until that trust is formed, he needs to be in a safe environment. Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for dogs over 4 months is $120.00. Puppies under 4 months are $140.00 The adoption fee includes the animal's surgery, microchip, vaccinations, flea preventative, deworming medication, sample bag of food/treat samples and a free first exam with participating veterinarians.
