         Animals adopted must have a fenced yard and access to a house in a safe and loving environment.    References and a home visit are needed to approve an adoption.    All adoptions require a pre-adoption week-long visit at the new home to make sure the animal and family are compatible.    Animals adopted 6 months and older are fixed prior to adoption.    All animals adopted are dewormed and up to date on all necessary vaccines.    Dogs are also up-to-date on heartworm preventative.    They may be heartworm positive, if on the slow-kill cure procedure for heartworms using ivermectin, provided we feel confident that the new owners will continue the procedure.    Otherwise, they will have been treated to kill the heartworms with the conventional "arsenic-based" drug imiticide.    A tax-deductable donation of $150 is asked at the time of adoption.

13 Socks

Shar Pei & Kimmer Cur

Input Date
Socks (LDR #13) is an adorable young mix of Shar Pei (check out her small ears) and probably Kimmer Cur as judged from the colors of her coat and general size. She was 9 months old at input and weighed 33 pounds. She is now (4/1/16) about two years old and weighs about 35 lbs. Socks has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccines and tested negative for heart worms. Socks was abandoned as a puppy by a family in Robbinsville, North Carolina when they moved from their "double wide" trailer and saved by a neighbor who was her initial foster. She was house-trained and socialized with her foster's 5 dogs and is so sweet and friendly. Socks likes to be both indoors and outdoors and would require a fenced yard for her protection although she doesn't run off when outside. Her second foster had a total of 13 dogs (ranging from 30 lbs to a 100 lbs) and she gots along fine with everyone. She is not cat aggressive. Socks likes to sleep on the bed in the arms of her foster. If you are interested in providing a home for Socks, please contact Ron Stoessell at 985-630-1613 or Cindy Mulkey at 828-557-4263
23 Earl

Brown Heeler (mixed)

Input Date
Earl is a stubtailed, 5 year old 55 lb Brown Heeler, possibly mixed with Australian Shepherd. He is house trained, uses a doggy door, has wonderful recall and doesn't run off. Earl is fully vetted. He was a Shelter dog, taken in as an owner surrender from the Peachtree area of Cherokee County, NC. He came in needing a dental but already fixed. He had 9 teeth removed and is feeling wonderful now. This is a sweet and lovable dog, a perfect family pet who loves people and children and gets along fine with other dogs.
36 Jesse


Input Date
Jesse was a 30 to 35 lb, 7 to 8 month old brown and white male beagle at input. He was a stray from Warne, NC and is being fostered in Murphy, NC. Jesse will be spayed in January and will be fully vetted and microchipped. He is house-trained, crate trained, and doggy-door trained. He loves people. He likes to play with other dogs and with balls and is generally untalkative unless you howl at him, in which case he will howl back with his beagle howl. Jesse will be a great family pet for children. We want him to have a home with a fenced yard and a place to sleep inside at night. If you are interested in adopting him, please contact Ron Stoessell at or at 985-630-1613..
