ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Ariel is a very energetic lab that is hoping to find an active family! She found herself at the shelter due to a few mild issues that can easily be addressed in a household that is better suited for her personality. Ariel requires a fenced in yard or someone who has the ability to give every outside break on leash as she is a wanderer! She is very rambunctious despite being 8 years old, which can be difficult to manage around small children. Ariel loves to play fetch, swim and ride in boats! She would do best in an active home that wants an exuberant, adventurous companion! Animal Control News No items found.
