Mountain Cur Mix DOG FOR ADOPTION RGADN-222975 - PTH Bain - Hound / Mountain Cur
Mountain Cur Mixture Dog for Adoption in Batavia, New York, 14020 USNickname: PTH Bain Posted Breed: Hound / Mountain Cur / Mixed (short coat). Bain two year old Hound/Mountain Cur/Male/Neutered Bain is a great young guy who enjoys walks and playing with his other dog friends. Approximate graduation day is October 20th. Volunteers For Animals and Orleans Correctional Facility have developed a Dog Training & Fostering Program within the prison that will provide socialization and basic obedience training for the dogs before being adopted. Volunteers For Animals will be pulling dogs from high kill shelters and locally who may be in need of behavioral support to become more adoptable. The dogs will then be transported to Orleans Correctional Facility where they will live with selected inmates who will care for them 24 hours per day for approx twelve weeks. Each dog will have a crate, bedding, leash, collar, training treats, and food provided by Volunteers For Animals. A certified dog trainer will provide 1.5 hour formal weekly training class for the dogs, with extra sessions if needed, and the inmates will work daily to reinforce the formal training. At the end of the training period the dogs will have an opportunity to take the test for "Canine Good Citizen." The dogs will go to Orleans Correctional Facility for fostering and basic obedience training. Currently, our foster program for dogs can only handle approx 4-6 dogs which is done in private homes. There is no formal dog obedience training easily available in these private homes. This program will help us to expand the number of dogs we foster and care for within VFA, and help at-risk dogs become more adoptable. All of our dogs in The Path to Home Program will be crate trained, have basic obedience skills, and good house manners. Volunteers For Animals applied for and received a grant from Maddie's Fund in order to start this unique program. The grant has assisted in purchasing supplies, food and medical care for the dogs. Here is the adoption process: You must come to the Shelter to complete an application which is reviewed right away. If everything is okay you can meet any of the animals. All animals are $60, if they are not spay or neuter, there is a $35 refundable deposit that is returned upon proof of surgery. If Volunteers For Animals spayed or neutered the animal, we are suggesting adopters make a donation of $35 to help with the cost of the surgery which is significantly less than if you had to go to a veterinarian. All of that donation will go directly towards spaying and neutering the next animal we take into the Shelter. You will be helping to "Spay it Forward" and reduce the homeless pet population. We only accept cash or checks. Please bring a carrier for cats to go home in or you can purchase a great cardboard carrier for $5 from us. If you live in Genesee County, all dogs must be licensed before they leave the Shelter which is done through your city/town clerk's office (typically M-F 9-5). Please bring a leash when you pick up your new friend. Our adoption hours are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 1-3; Wednesday 7-9 and Saturday 11-1. If the cat or kitten is at Petco, you can go in anytime during Petco's store hours to complete an application and see the cat or kitten. Once a day a volunteer stops into the store to review applications and will call you with questions or let you know the adoption is approved. You can return to the store anytime to pay the adoption payment and pick up the cat or kitten. The adoption payment is $40, cash or check, and the animal must leave in a carrier. Thank you for considering a homeless animal.
