Pet of the Week: Rio

Meet Rio! He is the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pets of the Week.

Rio is a gorgeous 1 year old Australian Shepherd mix. He is a very intelligent dog who is learning so many useful skills in a great foster home right now. Jenna, our certified dog trainer on staff, came up with a specialized training plan for this sweet dog, so he will need a dedicated owner who will continue to train & exercise him. He does need to go to a home without children. To get more information on this smart pup give us a call at 719-395-2737

All adoptable animals receive the following services prior to adoption:

  • Spay or Neuter
  • Age-appropriate boosters
  • De-wormer
  • Vaccines
  • Microchip

Because Rio is the Pet of the Week, his adoption fees are 50% off (Adoption fees vary by age and animal). Visit the Ark Valley Humane Society’s website to learn more.

The Ark Valley Humane Society is open and available by appointment only, make sure to call 719-395-2737 and schedule an appointment before coming to the shelter! If you or someone you know is in need of pet food, we have community pet food available! Just call us to arrange a contactless pick up!
