Meet this week's Staff Pick! Carter, a year and a half old Airedale Terrier, has already made quite the impact on our staff and guests, just ask Kennel Attendant Sean, who has been working one-on-one with Carter since he was brought to the Humane Society of Ventura County on November 8th.
Sean describes Carter as a ,"Loyal and eager dog who would do great in a active family." Since his arrival Carter has already made huge improvements on his manners and has learned how to walk well on a leash. While he can be quite anxious in the kennels, once Carter gets out for his daily walks or into our agility yard he quickly mellows out and enjoys his time playing with staff and volunteers.
From what we have observed Carter is a very easy going guy that would benefit from the structure and training of a well balanced home. Carter enjoys the company of both men and women and seems to not be bothered by other dogs. We encourage anyone interested in Carter to visit the shelter and ask a staff member to introduce you!
Included with every dog adoption will be the first DHPP shot of the series, a rabies vaccine, a wellness check good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, implanting an identification microchip (registration extra), spay or neuter surgery, if necessary, as well as a collar, ID tag, and a leash.
For dog adoptions, a yard check will be performed prior to adoption. In addition to adequate fencing and shelter, those wishing to adopt a pet must provide either proof of ownership of the residence or a rental agreement for that address indicating that pets are allowed.
