• Two Sheltie puppies, brothers, about three months old.
• Collie mix female, about one year old. “She has been spayed, has her shots and vet records,” Stemler says. “The Collie needs lots of exercise and/or a large yard.”
To give owners the opportunity to claim them, dogs and cats are kept for seven days at the Park Hills and Farmington Pounds; and five days at the Desloge Pound. After that, they are eligible for adoption or euthanasia. There are no adoption fees at the Farmington and Park Hills pounds, but rescuers are required by the Missouri Department of Agriculture to sign a spay/neuter/vaccination commitment.
