Howdy! My name is Rusty! Now I may be six years old, and I may be overweight, and my name may be Rusty, but don't let that confuse you kind folks. I've still got pep to my step. I've got plenty of gas in the tank! My previous owner had trouble remembering things, including of I had already eaten. Because of this, I ate more than I should have. I'm working on getting down to a healthy weight, and I'm also enjoying my daily walks. Boy, sometimes I get myself all tuckered out and just want to take a break, but I keep going. I really enjoy being close to people and showing how sweet I am. I would really like a home of my own where I will be kept on a diet and exercise plan so that I can live a long and happy life!
Rusty has been sponsored for Chris and Krista Mroz's Wedding Shower!
Lexie is a beautiful 1½-year-old Pit Mix. She's very affectionate and loves to be around people. She enjoys cuddling up with the staff & volunteers in her kennel. She walks well on leash, but would definitely benefit from further obedience training. She does have the tendency to be dog aggressive. With that said she needs to go to an experienced home, one that knows how to handle that behavior and is willing to work with her consistently. If you are interested in meeting Lexie, please stop by today. Please No Other Dogs in household.
Lexie has been sponsored in Honor of "Buck", who was adopted from HSCI into his forever home in 2006.
Lexie has been sponsored by Angie Brown! In honor of Lauren Brown's 12th Birthday!
"I'm Maggie, can you hear me? I know you can! I'm a 2½-year-old Olde English Bulldogge. I've been called Momma Maggie for a long time because I have had multiple litters. I'm no longer having puppies, so I'm ready to find a home of my own. I will be honest, I do need some training because I haven't been taught much. I'm a spunky, goofy, happy girl who is always ready to play! I can sometimes be too much for other dogs because I'm so active. I would love to have a family that is active and committed to my daily needs/training. An experienced home would be best. If you are interested in visiting with me, please stop by."

Max is a fun 3-year-old Jack Russell Terrier with a love for adventure. His adventures have been within a wide range! From swimming in pools and jumping on trampolines to going to great lengths to retrieve his favorite toy; the Tennis Ball. Example: Climbing a ladder leaning against a tree to get his tennis ball that had been thrown and stuck in the tree and then running back down. Funny huh, well that's not all. He also likes to climb fences, and seems to enjoy running/barking after people and other dogs on the Constitution Trail. His curiosity is extreme and he's always looking for something to do. Though he enjoys his adventures he's still a bit standoffish at first. It may take him a few minutes to warm up and get comfortable when he first meets new people. He would be a great candidate for fly-ball or agility. He needs a very experienced home that knows the breed and one that is willing to work consistently with him on his training. Stop by today if you are up for the challenge! He would love to meet you!
Max has been sponsored by Judith Webster! In loving memory of HSCI alums, Tiffany & Mischief.
Brody is an awesome 3-year-old Black Lab. When you first see him you are sure to say, "wow!" He is a goofy boy with a wonderful happy personality. He loves to have fun, so much so that he doesn't like to sit still for very long. He enjoys playing in the outdoor kennels especially if you have a toy that you will throw for him. His favorite is the Pheasant, it makes him feel like he's out on a trail. He's a loveable boy that needs a yard to run in and a family to love him. Stop by today and see Brody in one of our Dog Viewing Rooms.
Molly is an adorable 1-year-old Corgi Mix with a very sweet personality. She enjoys being around "her" people both indoors and outdoors.
Wilbur is a 2-year-old Terrier Mix with a very sweet personality.
