ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Jasper is a friendly young dog that is looking for a loving home! He was brought to the shelter because he was unfortunately very good at capturing chickens. Jasper has been kept primarily outdoors, but he desperately wants to be a part of the family! He needs a little help fine-tuning his manners on how to behave in the home, similar to a partially trained puppy. Jasper may also need more training on not going potty in the house; however he is keeping his kennel clean at the shelter. Jasper is very social and affectionate! He has thrived being in the spotlight when brought to events outside of the shelter. Jasper would benefit from going to an obedience class with his new family and getting more socialization in general. Animal Control News No items found.
