Adopt this dog, Gidget.







My name is Gidget, aptly named  because I am the cutest girl around! I am a beautiful two year old mix of Welsh Corgi and a few other breeds. Can you believe that in spite of my good looks, I was left behind when my family moved? Lucky for me,  a nice neighbor was kind enough to drive me all the way from Potosi to FCHS because she knew I would be given a chance to find the type of loving home I deserve. Since I have been through some rough times lately,  I tend to be shy around other dogs; living my life as an only pet may be best for me, although I might be able to handle another small, docile dog friend if the circumstances were right. I only weigh about 21 pounds so I wouldn't take up much space, no matter where we live. Hopefully I am just the girl you are looking for because I really enjoy giving and getting love. If you promise to treat me like royalty, I promise to return your love ten times over!

Anxiously waiting to meet you,

Adopt this cat, Princess.






Since we are on the subject of royalty, i can tell you my name is Princess! I am a five year old feline firecracker just waiting to entertain you with my good natured personality. Like so many of the kitties I have met here, my owners could not take me with them when they moved so their loss is your gain! I have had my front claws removed so I will be kind to your household furnishings and am ready for immediate occupancy! I recently moved into the play land area at the shelter with other kitty friends since I am a rather social girl; I love the glass walls that allow me to watch everything going on with my gorgeous green eyes! Best of all, it's easy to greet you as soon as you walk through my door! We really could become the best of friends, so if you are looking for a loving cat companion, I am ready for the challenge!

Adopt this dog, Charcoal.







Hello humans! My name is Charcoal and if you are looking for a new special guy in your life, I am definitely your man! I am a one year old happy-go-lucky kind of guy in spite of my recent history. I was found wandering as a lost pet along the edge of the Long Ridge Conservation area near Sullivan. Since I have been at the shelter, I am very happy to interact with other dogs and love to visit with any person who will take the time to show me some love! My energy  level is fairly high so I would enjoy a new home with room to frolic and play. I have a beautiful brindle and white coat which would be easy to keep clean- not like some of those long hair "furballs" around here. That would free up your time for some fun! I would make a great running buddy or be glad to run along side while you bike a few miles; we could keep each other motivated and fit! When we have time to wind down, I'll curl up with you for a snooze because I have this strange desire to be a lap dog; but don't get me wrong- I'll be just as satisfied with the floor if that will make you happier. Don't let the fact that I have some Pit in me put you off; there are a few other breeds mixed up in me as well! I am 54 pounds of pure joy just waiting to be your new best friend for life!

Did you know?

  • Did you know each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of these animals. Please Spay and Neuter your pets, and help save lives and end needless suffering of these pets. We offer low-cost options for altering your pets.
  • Our dogs travel every Saturday to area PetSmarts and Petcos with our mobile adoptions. This helps get these pups more visibility in the community, and gives them more of a chance at finding their forever homes. Please check our calendar for locations!
