Tackett is a great little mixed breed hound who came to the shelter as a stray. When Tackett arrived, he had a broken leg. The leg was evaluated and the initial veterinary recommendation was amputation, but through the dilligent care of shelter staff, the leg healed and Tackett gets around on it just fine now.
Tackett is a wonderful and intelligent little dog who loves people and gets along well with other dogs. Tackett loves walks and being outside with people. His coat is a beautiful brindle tan mixture and he has the most beautiful pecan colored eyes.
Tackett will make a wonderful family dog for anyone interested in giving him the opportunity to demonstrate just how smart and loving he really is. Come see Tackett this week at the shelter and allow him to show you just how special he is.
If you are interested in adopting Tackett ot one of the many other dogs or cats that are available for adoption at the shelter, please take the time to visit the Douglas County Animal Shelter located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road) this week, or view them on line.
Douglas County Animal Control maintains PetFinder listings on their website.
Or you can visit the Douglas County shelter pets in depth and with personal commentaries on individual animals by those who know them best. These photos are posted and profiled daily on volunteer pages at: Rainbow Connections on Facebook Or our sister page at: Furbabies of DCAS on Facebook.
Pet listings on each of these pages are updated daily; therefore, some animals featured may be adopted prior to your visiting the shelter. Finding forever homes for these pets is the goal, so please consider giving another loving pet a home if the one you first saw has already been adopted. Come see these sweet dogs and cats and allow them to show you just how special they each can be once they are given a chance to be loved and have a home.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats at the shelter are $25 and there is a $10 micro chip fee. That means for $35 you have the opportunity to make a friend for life and the opportunity to give a homeless fur kid a forever home.
All dogs presently receive intake inoculations for kennel cough, parvo and distemper (cats receive distemper as part of a five way vaccination). All pets adopted from the shelter are required to have their rabies shots and be spayed or neutered within thirty days of adoption, unless they are kittens or puppies, Kittens and puppies are given extended time.
