HAVE YOUR PEOPLE CALL MY PEOPLE . . . And make an appointment to meet me! Hi everyone! My name is Amos and I'm a 2 year-old Retriever mix. I'm a very energetic and playful guy who's ready for a home of my very own! I love to be outside and to go for rides in the car! I make a great hiking buddy and I even learned something called urban mushing - kind of like being a sled dog but on pavement instead of snow - so cool! I have a really great team at DAWS who have been working really hard on my training. I'm incredibly smart - I know a bunch of verbal commands and am always working on something new. My ideal home would be with an experienced owner who really wants to work with me (no kids please). Please make an appointment to see me and the humans who know me best can give you the 411 on me!
No one puts Baby in a corner! Baby is an adorable 5 year old girl who loves lots of pets and cuddles! She will lean up into your had and enjoy every rub.

Meet Beebee the wonder kitty! She is a sweet girl who is 5 years old and weighs only 7.5 pounds! She was brought to the shelter as her family was moving away and couldn't take her. She is dressed to the nines with her white whiskers, chest and paws! This playful girl would be a great addition to your family!
Big Boy with a Big Heart! This wonderfully sweet eight year old senior cat came to us after his owner found out he is FIV+. It's not a death sentence, but he does have some additional medical issues since he was living outside for a little while. He's healing nicely and has a loving temperament. If you have a Big Heart like Big Boy, you'll be a match made in heaven!
APPLICATION RECEIVED I'M THE KING OF THE CASTLE! But don't worry - I don't breathe fire like the Bowser in the video game! Unless I eat something really spicy! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Bowser and I'm a 1-1/2 year-old Pekingese mix. And I might be way off-base but I always thought Bowser was just misunderstood - maybe he was breathing fire to help Mario and Luigi roast marshmallows! Or maybe not, HA! Anyway, I'm much cuter and snugglier than that guy, and I love getting attention from everyone I meet! I'm energetic and playful and I love to chase squeaky toys! I love hot dogs and I'm pretty gentle when I take them! I'm an affectionate and people-oriented guy and I'm totally happy hanging on your lap while we watch some TV!
Bristol is a bit bristled right now, but we know he'll be fine once he finds a forever home! He is 6 years old and was rescued by a good samaritan after being abandoned by his family. He's a total love bug and has the cutest mark on his nose! He'd love to find a loving home where he will never have to worry about being left behind again.
SOMETIMES YOU WANNA GO WHERE EVERYBODY KNOWS YOUR NAME And everyone from DAWS is definately glad I came! Hi everyone! My name is Carla and I'm a 2-1/2 year-old Shepherd mix. I'm a very outgoing and people-oriented girl. I love making new friends and getting attention from everyone I meet! Sometimes I get really excited and jump but I'm learning four on the floor- HA! I'm a smart girl too, I already know Sit and I can't wait to learn more! I love food and treats, especially hot dogs, and if hot dogs are part of our training then I promise you will always have my undivided attention! I'm energetic and playful and I bet I would make a great hiking buddy too! Spring is here people, let's get out there!
"BUT I'VE GOT DIXIE ON MY MIND" Charlie Daniels was thinking about me - that means you have been too, right? HA! Hi everyone! My name is Dixie and I'm a 3 year-old Retriever mix. I'm a sweet girl from Kentucky whose family had to move and they couldn't take me with them. So I found my way to a shelter and now here I am at DAWS, hoping that I won't have to wait too long until my new family comes to find me. I'm a little nervous when I first meet people - I might only get close enough to lick your hand and then move away. But deep down I really do love people and am a snuggle bug at heart. I just need a little time to get used to things and then the true me really comes out! I love food and treats and I'm probably housebroken too!
Domino is an adorable 1 and a half year old sweetheart! He and his brother Rogue came to the shelter because their owner could no longer care for them. He is very playful and loves chin scratches! Domino has mild Cerebellar Hypoplasia, which just means that his balance is a little off when he walks. He doesn't know that he is different from any other kitty and it doesn't hold him back from anything! He can still play and use the litter box. These sweet boys are very bonded, so we would like them to go to a loving forever home together. Come meet this drunken sailor and his shipmate today!

My name is Fergus and I'm a 3 year-old Great Pyrenees mix. And these days I'm tipping the scale at just over 100 pounds! Some of it is fur though, I swear! I'm a gentle giant who loves to chill with my favorite people at DAWS. Great Pyranees don't like to be alone for very long. Maybe you work from home and you need an assistant? I'll work for hot dogs! I love food and I'm learning to share so a quieter home without small children and folks willing to help me with this is ideal. I'm a big softie who's as loyal as they come - having a bad day and need a friend to lean on? I'm your man!
This Flame will warm your heart! She's a beautiful girl who is approximately a year and a half old. She was rescued by a good samaritan along with her siblings, Moon, Fox and Ice.

WHY DID THE CELL PHONE NEEDE GLASSES? Because it lost all its contacts! Get it? HA! Hi everyone! My name is Fritz and I'm a one year-old Feist mix. A feist is actually a kind of hunting dog but the only thing this guy goes hunting for is hot dogs! I'm a super-sweet and shy guy from Kentucky. Right now there are lots of things that make me nervous like new people and loud noises, but you know what always makes me feel better? Another dog! I love other dogs and my new four-legged friends really help me feel more comfortable. My friends at DAWS think it would be a good idea if my new home already has a dog for me to be friends with! All I need is a little patience and extra TLC to be the best Fritz I can be!

This Little Man has a BIG personality! He's a handsome, outgoing 5 year old who will quickly offer his belly for rubs. Everyone he meets is instantly taken by his sweet demeanor. He will make a wonderful addition to your family.
DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR? Probably not, unless your ears are as big as mine! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Lizzie and I'm a 2 year-old Shepherd/Feist mix. I'm an energetic and playful girl who loves toys! I don't play fetch though - I like to bury my toys! It's actually pretty cute to watch! I like to bury my chewy bones too - not that I think you would steal them but you never know! I'm super-sweet and love getting as much attention as I possibly can! I used to have a home of my own in Kentucky and as awesome as the people at DAWS are, I'm ready for my new family to come and take me home!

Hi everyone! my name is Lucy and I'm a 1-1/2 year-old Beagle mix. I'm a happy-go-lucky and adorable girl whose bowl is always half-full (hopefully with food!) I love to be outside - whether it's going for a walk or running around and playing with toys. I'm sweet and affectionate and I can't get enough belly rubs! I've heard that Beagles make great family dogs so if you're a family and you don't have a Beagle, you should totally get one! And by one, I mean me! I promise to keep the floors free of crumbs and to make you smile and laugh everyday! And all I ask in return is love (and maybe a hot dog or two!)
WHAT DO ELVES LEARN IN SCHOOL? The elf-abet! Get it? HA!! Hi everyone! My name is Luna and I'm an 8 month-old Shepherd mix. And I hope you like corny jokes because there's more where that came from! So besides being hilarious, I'm also very outgoing and social! I absolutely love people! I'm an energetic girl who loves to play, especially with toys that squeak! I also love playing with other dogs - I'm a rough and tumble girl so let's wrestle! I love to eat and am super food motivated! I auto-sit when you have a treat, which means you don't even have to say it, I just do it automatically! I love chew toys and I'll need some help from my new family with learning what I'm allowed to chew on and what I'm not.
APPLICATION RECEIVED IT'S A PARTY IN THE U.S.A.! It sure is a party for me - I'm here at DAWS and my new family is out there - I can't wait to meet you! Hi everyone! My name is Miley and I'm a 1-1/2 year-old Border Collie Mix. I'm a sweet southern girl who made the trip all the way from Kentucky to find my new home! Sometimes I get nervous around new people but I really love and crave attention from my two-legged friends so it just takes a little patience and sweet talk and it's like we're best friends! Once I get to know someone, I love to be close and snuggle, and since I'm not that big I would be the perfect couch buddy! I love food and treats, especially hot dogs, and am very gentle when I take them! And what good party doesn't have hot dogs??

My name is Penny and I'm a 2 year-old Labrador Retriever mix. I'm a super-sweet girl who came to DAWS all the way from Kentucky. I'm a shy girl who gets nervous when I meet people. I take some time to warm up so I'm looking for a family who will be patient and let me get used to things at my own pace. A quieter home would probably be the best place for me so that I can get to know my humans and learn that people aren't going to hurt me. I love hot dogs and I'm very gentle when I take them. I walk nicely on a leash too and love to explore my surroundings!
This sailorman is ready to ship off to his new home! He's a sweet ten year old male who was found on the streets. He has been examined, was deemed ship shape and is ready to shove off! Your home will make a wonderful port for him to start his new, loved-by-all life!

My name is River and I'm a 2 year-old Basset Hound mix. I'm a total goofball and promise to always keep you smiling and laughing!

APPLICATION RECEIVED I'M THE FOX AND HOUND - ALL ROLLED INTO ONE! Okay so maybe a Chihuahua isn't exactly a Hound, but you get the idea! Hi everyone! My name is Rusty and I'm a 2 year-old Chihuahua mix. I'm a sweet little guy who was surrendered to a shelter in Kentucky because my owner had too many animals and couldn't afford to talke care of us all.

This beautiful tortie is Smudge! She is a 2 year old sweet female who was rescued by a Good Samaritan and is now looking for a special someone who will share their home with her. She has mild FeLV, so she would do great in a home with no other pets, or a home with another cat with FeLV. She is extremely affectionate and soaks up any bit of attention, and gives as much back in return. She deserves a chance to be part of a loving family who will spoil her like a princess! You can't help but fall in love with her :) If there is any room in your heart for this friendly girl, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment to meet her!

I was surrendered to a shelter in Kentucky with my friends Odie and Bandit and how awesome is it that we all made the trip up here to DAWS together? I'm a sweet girl who can be a bit shy when I first meet people. I usually like to spend a few minutes sniffing around and then I'll come over and say hi when I'm ready. Unless you have food, then I'll come over right away! HA! I get really excited when I know there's food around and as you see from my picture, I do a cute little dance to try to convince people to share. It almost always works!
