 Kennel 46, with Unique ID 2017-77 Samuel German Shepherd SENIOR Male RESCUED! This is Samuel and he is an older German Shepherd that was surrendered to the shelter after his owner was no longer able to care for him due to owner's own health issues and age. Arrived on March 10, 2017. He weighs 78.4 pounds and is an older gentleman. Samuel appears to have some issue in his hip area, not sure if arthritis or something else. He is very kind and gentle, but he is not used to a leash. Samuel needs out of the shelter environment as he is very sad inside of the shelter but brightens up a lot once he is in the outside play area. Please share Samuel so that he can find a forever home/rescue.

Kennel 6, ID 2017-106 Male RESCUED! Weighs 56.3 pounds. Sinatra was adopted and then picked up as a stray and several times the owner would come and claim him. Sinatra and Ralphie were temp tested in the past and had fun playing with each other. PLEASE SHARE Sinatra so he can truly find his forever home.

Kennel 9, ID 2017-79  Drake Adult Male - Drake is very skittish and will need to learn to trust humans. He needs an adopter/rescue that understands how to handle an adult dog with trust issues.

  Jacques Pit Bull Terrier Medium SENIOR  Male EXTREMELY URGENT! RUNNING OUT OF TIME! HAS BEEN AT SHELTER OVER 100 DAYS! Is there any hope for this guy? JACQUES was brought into the shelter by the police after he jumped out of a window and was found wandering the street. This poor guy was quite thin, his nails were extremely overgrown, most of the hair along his back was missing, and he seemed confused and scared. Jacques is a great dog, but he is not for the first time owner and will require a strong leader and some basic training. He appears to have some separation anxiety and is nervous when meeting new people (especially men)...we like to refer to him as a diamond in the rough! Once you get this guy to warm up and feel comfortable, his personality really starts to peek through. Jacques doesn't seem to be interested in toys, but rather prefers just lounging around and relaxing, getting rubbed on, and soaking up the sunshine. Although he can be playful and energetic at times, he really is just a quiet couch potato and would love nothing more than snuggling beside his human on the sofa. We are guessing this handsome fella to be about 9 or 10 years old and weighs roughly 60 pounds.

 Moose Domestic Short Hair Mix Extra Large Adult Male - LONG TIMER! Meet Owensboro's version of "Grumpy Cat". Moose is a plump, sassy, independent, opinionated & talkative trickster. He absolutely does not believe HE should have to share his humans, his surroundings, or his belongings with any other cat (or dog). He LOVES to be around people, but on HIS terms (meaning if he wants you to love on him, he will choose the time and place.)  Moose is a hoot, and we love him dearly. We are determined to find him THE purr-fect home. This home will understand this feline's attitude, will accept that their home now belongs to him, and will love him unconditionally on HIS terms. This home will also only want one pet, and will keep Moose on a special diet as he is prone to bladder infections and stones.
 Sky Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Male EXTREMELY URGENT! ZERO INTEREST! 1.5 years old. Neutered. Has lived with small dogs and children. A little too curious about cats. Scared in kennel, but warms up quickly. Just a big, strong baby.  LOVES TO RUN, PLAY, SUNBATHE, & SMELL THE ROSES. KNOWS SOME COMMANDS (Sit, Paw). WALKS WELL ON TRAINING COLLAR AND NOW, AFTER WORK, EVEN A REGULAR LEASH.
Ben Pit Bull Terrier SENIOR Male URGENT! RESCUE ONLY DUE TO HEALTH ISSUES! Ben arrived at the shelter as you see him - an older dog who is covered in skin issues and growths. We do not think his owners intentionally mistreated him, as he has obviously been fed well and loved. With that being said...this guy needs a rescue ASAP!! Bloodwork is being considered to rule out auto immune disorders, and the vet also recommends biopsies of the growths, all of which require funds we often don't have. Ben also has the beginning stages of cataracts. The good news? He is heartworm NEGATIVE! This guy deserves a life free from the misery he has lived with for a very long time. Surely there's a rescue willing to take on this handsome boy??
Oreo Australian Shepherd Mix Medium Adult Female URGENT! NEEDS OUT OF SHELTER! HEADSTRONG AUSSIE WITH DIAGNOSED EPILEPSY!!! WOULD PREFER SHE GO TO A RESCUE GROUP! Oreo lived outside her whole life, but would desperately love to be an indoor dog. She was surrendered because she was barking to come in, and the neighbors were beginning to complain. She is very affectionate, attentive, and you can see the intelligence in her soulful brown eyes! Oreo will need a home with no other dogs or cats, but she absolutely loves children! An epileptic dog experienced home is preferred!
