Kevin After 111 days at the shelter, Kevin is feeling a little let down. He’s got everything going for him; a sweet personality, a gentle disposition. Kevin loves other dogs and plays well with everyone we have paired him with. He’s great on a leash and loves spending time with his favorite volunteers. He has mastered sit, stay and down, and lives to show off his skills. He would do great in a family with kids.Where: Humane Society of Catawba County-HickoryBreed: Terrier/American pit bull mix, maleAge: 1 years 3 monthsAdoption fee: $125 Motor Baby How is Motor Baby still at the shelter? Everyone who meets this boy falls head over heels for him. A gentle soul who loves to talk, a total lap kitty — Motor Baby would literally sit with you for hours. He doesn’t mind being held or loved on, in fact he encourages it. Motor Baby is even cool with baths! He was surrendered to the humane society after being found in a diesel engine. He carries the scars of that experience, but we think it gives him character. Motor Baby has been declawed, and will need to live the rest of his life indoors.Where: Humane Society of Catawba County-HickoryBreed: Domestic short hair, maleAge: 8 years 1 monthAdoption fee: $30 Pongo Pongo is a sweet puppy with lots of love to give.

Fern would do best in a home that had another dog or two — just a couple of pals to play tug-of-war with.
