ROGERSVILLE — The Hawkins County Humane Society is working hard to adopt out more dogs and cats, but more dogs and cats keep flooding in to our shelter, including from emergency rescues.

As a result, the Humane Society is currently having an adoption special.

Dogs are reduced to $40 with puppies at $65 and our ‘long-term dogs’ with us over 90 days are at $30.

All cats and kittens are $30. We are a no-kill facility and need all the help we can get. Please come see our dogs and cats.

A sampling of some of our dogs are described below with more information at Pet Finder (www.petfinder.com/shelters/TN129.html).

1) Bandit — AmStaf and Shar Pei, 1 year old, male. One of the nicest dogs at the shelter. He is really sweet with low to moderate activity. An all-around great dog that should make a great family addition.
