This salt and peppered colored boy is a Jack Russel Terrier mix that is estimated to be 5 years of age. Working in animal welfare, our team encounters COUNTLESS cases of abuse and neglect. We see strays and owner surrenders that get dumped at the shelter in less than ideal conditions. However, Grady was not one of these dogs! He entered the shelter as a stray in perfect health! He even arrived wearing an e-collar. It appears this always happy guy was someone’s beloved pet. Because Grady was not claimed, he was available for adoption on October 9th. And trust us... you do not want to miss out on taking this PERFECT guy home.
Pay It Forward For Pets is a 501c3 non profit organization that helps improve the lives of both people and “rescued” pets through special programs. The organization manages 6 programs that directly benefit the public and offers human resources and funding to county shelters and local rescue organizations in collaboration efforts to expedite adoptions and end euthanasia.

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
