TWO Dog Obedience Training Options Available NOW from Volunteers at the Shelter
NOVICE DOG OBEDIENCE CLASSES
Group Obedience Classes are held twice a year, usually in the Fall and Spring.
The next series of classes will begin in September 2013. Classes meet once a week for eight weeks. Dogs and their owners learn the basics of teaching the dog to sit, stay and come, as well as other fun activities in the hope that this will help your dog become a better and closer companion to your family.
S & P 1:1 Dog Obedience Course
Is your dog nervous around strangers? Does he bark excessively at other dogs? Or maybe you are uncomfortable in group settings? A 1:1 basic obedience course is now available for owners that are unable to take advantage of our group class due to pet or owner special consideration. The cost is the same as the basic obedience class the shelter holds twice a year - $80 for an 8 week course. Just you, your dog and the instructor. There is a 10% discount for dogs adopted from our shelter. Dogs must be 6 months or older. Handlers must be 16 years or older. Slots are limited. To see if you qualify, contact Instructor Meghan Giacopelli at Green Hills Animal Shelter at (660) 359-2700 or drop by the shelter to talk with her on M-W-Sa 1-5 pm.

Above and Beyond Adoptions
Never Say Never - Jamie's Story
"Who's going to adopt a dog like that?...No one's going to adopt a dog like that...That dog will never get adopted."I know we all said it, or at least thought it, even if for just a moment. But it was true, sort of. Jamie had so much going against her, it was sometimes hard to believe there was a home out there for her. But we trudged on, hoping against hope that it was true, all dogs have a home - somewhere, when the right time comes...http://meghanmg.blog.com/never-say-never-jamies-story/
Could you go above and beyond for an animal with special needs or consideration? Meet some animals that are waiting for that one of a kind person to take them home.
Josie is a 2 yr old female American English Coonhound mix. Beautiful, athletic, playful, and highly intelligent, Josie longs to be in the company of and work along side of people. She came to our shelter as a little puppy and was adopted by one of our volunteers. Unfortunately, her resident dog didn’t get along with Josie, and after trying everything she could think of over 6 months, she had to bring Josie back...- http://meghanmg.blog.com/josie/
