Hawkeye is a large mixed breed guy that came to Friends for Life Animal Rescue from the Yuma Humane Society. His family turned him in ... the owners said they had no time for him. He is about 2 years old. He is a very nice boy and silly as well. Volunteers at the shelter have been working with him, teaching him commands such as lay down. It has been observed that he is food possessive and, because of this, he should be an only animal in his new home. Hawkeye is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He currently lives at Friends for Life’s adoption center, 143 W. Vaughn Ave., in downtown Gilbert. His adoption fee is $125.
Hannah is a beautiful girl, estimated to be a 2-year-old Shepherd blend. She originally was found as a stray in Yuma. She weighs more than 60 pounds. Hannah is a great companion for humans, however, not so much for other animals. She becomes possessive if dogs are around and want her toys or her food. She’ll need to be the only animal in the home because of this. She can and does, however, interact with other dogs when there are no toys or food around.

Kermit was originally found as a stray and brought in to the Yuma Humane Society. He is estimated to be about 6 years old. The guess on what he is … Chihuahua mix?

Don’t let that scare you though … the volunteers that work with Kermit at the shelter can go over/explain what exactly that means. He is a very sweet boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Kermit’s adoption fee is $125.

The second time she was returned because her family was moving and couldn’t take her with them.

Jameson is a very handsome male Shepherd mix, about a year old. He was found as a stray. Jameson was never claimed so now he’s available for adoption. He is a big boy with lots of energy. He’s still very “puppy-ish” so whomever shares their home with Jameson should know sitting all day watching TV just won’t satisfy him. He is a wonderful guy that loves people, but he should be an only dog. During the time he’s been at the shelter he’s been “barky” when he sees or meets other dogs, and he does not want to share food or toys with his canine friends. He is living at the Friends for Life adoption center in downtown Gilbert, 143 W. Vaughn Ave. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered.
