Overcrowded Hawkins Humane Society offering adoption special

STAFF REPORT • Aug 5, 2019 at 12:16 PM

ROGERSVILLE — Hawkins County Humane Society continues to take in more cats and dogs than we can adopt out.

We are a no-kill shelter and really need your help. We are filled with dogs where we now cannot take any more in and are at the brink with kittens and cats. We are having a ‘Back to School Adoption Special’.

All dogs are reduced to $30 (puppies $65). For our ‘Abandoned Dogs’ with us for over 90 days we have an extra discount to $20. All kittens and neutered cats are $10 and non-neutered cats at $20. These specials are through Saturday August 17.

Our so sweet but ‘Abandoned Dogs’ over 90 days at our shelter are listed below.

They are all super people friendly. For any of them you can enter their kennel and the only danger is them jumping on you for attention (not Trooper he is sweet, older and impatient).

Many of our dogs are described on Pet Finder — www.petfinder.com/shelters/TN129.html 

1) Buck - Shepherd and Lab, 1-yr, M. Buck is a beautiful young sweetheart with kind friendly eyes, expressive character, intelligence and good temperament. He loves people. He really likes walks and to play fetch. With his nice fur he is fun to pet. He will make a great best friend. {105 days at shelter}
