 Lucy - is a 5-6 month old spayed female shepherd and possibly beagle mix. She currently weighs about 30 lbs. Lucy who was transferred to us from Wise County. She loves to play and can be very much the ham when showing everyone her newest toys. Lucy doesn't always share well and would probably do best as an only dog until she's had more training. She does get along well with other dogs when toys and food are not involved. It is unknown how she is with cats but is more likely to be afraid of them than want to hurt them. 


 sammywise1  Sammy - was found as a stray, along with Pammy, in Wise County. They were found in a very remote part of the county and were extremely thin. It appeared as though they had most likely been abandoned. Even with his rough beginning Sammy, who is an approximately 1-2 year old neutered male hound and pointer type mix, is still an absolute sweetheart. Sammy loves people and loves toys. What he would love most of all is to find a person/family to share his toys with him. 
 pammywise3  Pammy - is a Labrador mix who was found along with Sammy (above). She is also approximately 1-2 years old. Pammy can be a little timid at first but once she gets to know you she is an absolute love bug who loves attention and loves to give kisses. She seems to do well around people and around other dogs. She has done well around older children and seems more curious about cats than she is interested in trying to harm them. 
 oreowise1  Oreo - is a 2-3 year old pit bull who was surrendered to the Wise County Animal Shelter by his owner. Due to lack of space and funding he along with 3 other dogs made the 5 hour ride to our shelter. Oreo is a sweet natured neutered male whose tail never stops. He has been good with people and with other dogs. Oreo is a very strong and muscular dog who is still in need of some basic obedience training. He will require an experienced adopter but in the right home he should make a wonderful addition to the family.
 smythmaleandfemale  Adam and Alicia - are approximately 9-10 week old siblings. They were brought to us from Smyth County when there was no longer any space in the inn for them to stay. They have become quite bonded and would love to find a home together. They are both very loving and sweet with extremely loud purr boxes. 
 Rufus  Rufus - and a very sweet 4 year old neutered male. His elderly owner unfortunately developed health problems which forced her to give Rufus up even though she truly loved him. Rufus does have a slight heart murmur and could stand to lose a few pounds but those issues do not keep him from wanting to give and receive lots of attention.

 Jewel - is a gorgeous 4 1/2 year old Snowshoe. She is a spayed female and is up to date on her vaccinations as well as having tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. She is very sweet young lady who loves to play. She knows how to fetch and enjoys playing in her water bowl. She also likes to hop up and be carried around on hr person's shoulders. She can be a little too rambunctious for small children. Jewel, like most Siamese and breeds related to the Siamese, she is quite a talker.

 Atticus  Atticus - is a very high energy shepherd mix who was transferred to us by Smyth County. He is approximately 10-11 months old. He has a very sweet temperament and loves to play. He does need a home with a fenced yard or a safe place to run and play. He loves people and children but is a bit too rambunctious for small children. With a little training and more exercise than he is able to obtain in a shelter he would make a wonderful family dog.
 roxiesmyth  Roxie - is another rescue who was transferred to us from Smyth County. Roxie is the type of dog who loves and wants to meet every person she sees. She also loves to play fetch. Roxie could still use some training but, she is a very smart girl who learns fast. She would make a great family pet although she might be a little energetic for very small children.


 If you are in the market for an adorable fun loving kitten please keep checking back. We have 3 litters ranging from 4-8 weeks of age who will be available as soon as they have been fully vet and are old enough to move on to loving homes.


   All of our kittens have received at least their first set of kitten vaccines, have been combo tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV and have been dewormed. Their adoption fees include returning to Town and Country Animal Hospital for their spaying or neutering.


Adoption fees are $150 for kittens, cats, puppies and dogs and $20 for other small animals.

All animals are examined by a veterinarian prior to their adoption. Dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated as is appropriate for their age, and dewormed. Dogs are tested for heartworms and cats are combo tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV. If a kitten or puppy is still too small to spayed or neutered adopters have the option of only paying a $75 adoption fee and later taking the animal to a veterinarian of their choice for spaying or neutering at their cost or they may pay the $150 adoption fee and have the animal spayed or neutered at Town and Country Animal Hospital at no additional charge once the animal is old enough.
The adoption fee on most small pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc. is $20.
