Ash with rope

While playing with one of the rope toys, Ash seemed to love his time away from the Stephens County Humane Society as part of the Take Out Tuesday program. He is available for immediate adoption to a no-cat home.

With a little energetic bolt, our Take Out Tuesday guest, Ash, found his way into our office from the Stephens County Humane Society on a mission to find a home where he can play to his heart’s content.

Ash, a 10 month old husky mix, is already large in size and he loves to meet new people though he isn’t the most fond of cats.

Upon entering our office, Ash seemed excited to meet a few of our staff members and went into search mode to see if the office was a safe place.

Once Ash did his research, he quickly found out where we put the treats for our weekly guests and showed he could be very treat motivated.

When the energy started to show, we brought out some toys for Ash and he seemed eager to chase them, though he wasn’t aggressive at all with the toys.

Ash took a walk with a coworker while I went to get lunch. When I got back to the office with our spoils, it seemed like Ash knew what was in store for him.

We tried to see if Ash knew any other tricks, however as a puppy still, he seemed more interested in eating and we obliged.

After letting him relax a little bit, Ash was ready to get moving again and we took him over to R&S Drug to receive some treats from the employees at the store.

The employees always get a joy from us bringing the dogs each and every week and they always have dog treats in stock and welcome the four-legged visitors.

We went back to the office for a small bit but ultimately we decided to spend the rest of our day at the Dog Park in Duncan to get some fresh air for Ash.

Ash wasted no time in finding the watering fountain and sniffing around the park.

Walking around each corner of the park, Ash and I then returned to the Stephens County Humane Society and we feel that the right owner is not too far away from this wonderful dog.

Some other friends from our weekly visits are still available including Cilla, who is a two year and five month old pit bull terrier; Gretchen, a four year old pit bull terrier; Reza, a six year old mixed breed; and Clover, who is an eight year old lab mix.

To inquire about our former guests and or other dogs, set up an appointment by calling 580-252-7387 between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. Weekends have extended hours until 6 p.m.
