A home isn’t quite a home without a dog. Is yours lacking in this department? The Lassen County Animal Shelter has an ever-revolving door with dogs and cats walking through it in search of new homes. This week our spotlight is Dilbert! And this boy is a big one.
Dilbert came to the shelter as a stray, so his history is unknown and staff is still getting to know him. In the kennels, he can be quite loud (most dogs are). Though, all he wants is some attention and a person to bring him out to the play yard for some time outside. He’s a moderate energy type of guy, who would likely be just fine with a simple walk around the block before joining you on the couch to watch Netflix and chill.
Further evaluations need to be done to see how Dilbert does with other dogs. If there happens to already be another dog in the home, or even children, it’s always recommended to bring them along for a meet and greet at the shelter to ensure everyone gets along.
Dilbert is estimated to be about 5 years old and will need to be neutered and brought up to date on vaccinations prior to adoption. If interested in Dilbert, or other adoptable animals at the shelter, please call staff at (530) 257-9200.
Additionally—The Lassen County Animal Shelter will be closed Monday, September 5th in observance of Labor Day and will re-open Tuesday the 6th for regular business hours.
Additional: If there are already dogs in a potential home, staff recommends a meet and greet with the shelter dog prior to adoption to ensure they get along.
Featured animals at the Lassen County Animal Shelter are available for adoption on a first-come-first-serve basis. According to California law, all adoptable dogs and cats must be spayed and neutered before leaving our facility. If interested in adopting an animal, please contact the shelter directly.
Current shelter hours during the COVID-19 pandemic are Monday through Friday, 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. Closed Saturday and Sunday. You can contact the shelter at 257-9200.
