This sweet girl is a 5-year-old Shiba Inu mix who recently arrived at Kent Animal Shelter from Thailand. Rescued from the meat trade industry, she had a rough start in life but that is all behind her now. Alta takes a little time to warm up to new people because she is a little shy, but her gentle nature will capture your heart if you give her a chance. Stop by and meet her today! Alta comes spayed, microchipped and up to date on all her vaccinations.

Kent Animal Shelter is located at 2259 River Road in Calverton. The adoption center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day. For more information on Alta and other adoptable pets at Kent, visit or call 631-727-5731. 

Update: Alta has been adopted!
