I’m just about the sweetest thing this side of the Mississippi….my name is Sossie and I am a spayed female Pointer mix, about 2 yrs old and a big girl at 63 lbs. Don’t let my size scare you….I am the easiest thing to handle you have ever seen! I was surrendered by my owner for unknown reasons. I have a quiet submissive personality and if you will just let me crawl in your lap….I’ll stay forever! I make friends quickly and my calm nature makes me a sure hit with the kids! I’m a little nervous about my surroundings but hope not to be here long! 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. That is the only option for those who are out of state or out of area. Paws in Prison dogs are approved by CARE for Animals and fees are set by CARE for Animals. Information about these animals can be found at www.careforanimals.org.
