Sam is a 9-year-old miniature dachshund and chihuahua mix. He came to the Licking County Humane Society with several other senior dogs, who were confiscated from their home due to neglect.
Sam has had a hard life so far, including many dental issues, cataracts, back and joint pain. LCHS has taken care of his teeth, but he needs a warm, comfortable home for his twilight years. He is affectionate, gentle, and loves other animals. Sam would do well in a laid back forever home, with a family who would enjoy a lazy lapdog.
Canine adoption fees are $170 for adult dogs and $200 for puppies. The fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm test, first set of vaccinations (Bordetella, DHPP, & Rabies) microchip, deworming, 30 days Shelter Care insurance and a starter bag of food. Unaltered canines require an additional $50 deposit which can be refunded after they are taken to their spay/neuter appointment. Please stop by the shelter and fill out an adoption questionnaire to adopt.
Be a permanent part of the new shelter by donating a commemorative brick, tile or tree to remember a loved one or a cherished pet. More information and purchasing opportunities can be found at lchspets.org.
