Pet of the Week: Maurice

Some people call him Space Cowboy, some call him the gangster of love. We call him Maurice. He’s a 2-year-old Hound mix who stumbled into The New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter and our hearts after being brought in by Animal Control. It didn’t take long for Maurice to settle in and make the shelter his home. As happy as he is here, Maurice is hoping that maybe someone will come along and help him spring out of here and into their new lives together. He’s about 30% sass, 20% goofy goober, and 50% lover of life, which totals to about 50 pounds of your new best friend. Maurice doesn’t seem interested in having any dog friends but is open to the idea of meeting your resident dog if you want to give it a go. He’s neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Maurice, go to to fill out an adoption application. His adoption fee is $80 plus applicable licensing fees.
