They named me Brave Elmo…’s such a perfect name for me! I have been here several days now but they just now decided to take my picture….you see I was very thin and quite frankly scared to death. It’s taken me a few days to settle in and I have put on a few extra pounds! I’m a neutered male Terrier/Chihuahua mix about 2 yrs old and I weigh 14 lbs….almost at my goal weight! So now that we got that part taken care of….a bit more about me……..I’ll just go ahead and say it…….I’m heartworm positive. I bet you just said awwwww. Look don’t worry we have some great Friends that will help with my treatment…all I have to do is find a home. I’m the sweetest boy ever, perfect on a leash and perfect for a lap! How about yours…..I’m available now! Adopting a dog from the Conway Animal Welfare Unit is a fairly easy process. The first step to adopting an animal is submitting an application. The application allows us to individually consider applicants and helps us to properly match our pets with new owners. We want to make sure that our pets are going to homes that are ready to provide for these pets long-term. Adoptions are $50 and this includes vaccinations, heartworm test, spay/neuter and microchip. As with any shelter animal, health is not guaranteed but we do our best to screen out those animals that are showing obvious signs of illness or disclose that information prior to adoption. All dogs are heartworm tested upon adoption.

If you are interested in adopting a dog and you reside OUTSIDE the city limits of Conway and the dog is less than 12 wks old, the cost is $75 which includes a spay/neuter and micropchip. The spay and neuter can only be performed at Vilonia Vet Clinic or Companion Animal Spay/Neuter Clinic. If the animal is less that 12 wks and you live inside the city limits the adoption fee is $25 dollars and you receive a voucher for $120 to use at select clinics for spay/neuter. The other option is that you provide us with proof of a pre-paid spay or neuter at YOUR vet of choice.
