POW Patches

“Patches” is the Pet of the Week.

“Patches,” the Pet of the Week, is ready for action. This male heeler/border collie mix is about a year old. He is very people friendly and all set to be a sidekick. He must be adopted by April 23.

Other animals available for adoption at Smyth County Animal Shelter:


 “Moe” is a 10-year-old neutered male pit bull.

“Nudge” is a two-year-old male pit bull.

“Sarah” is a two-year-old female walker hound.


Please visit the shelter to see cats and kittens available for adoption.

Intake varies day to day, so by the time of publication, many more animals could be available.
