Unfortunately, millions of unwanted puppies and kittens have to be euthanized each year in this country. Because of the tragedy of pet overpopulation, we require all of our adopted pets to be spayed or neutered.

Meet "Da-zee" ~ Approx 3 years old, Coonhound, 56lbs. Da-zee might have a serious face but she has the gentlest disposition. She is quiet, friendly, sociable and her tail is always wagging. Da-zee is an affectionate gal and she’s no joke in the cuddle department. She would make a great addition to any home. Will you be the lucky family to take her home?!
