Our featured Wet Nose this week is named Roswell. He's a 2-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix waiting to be adopted at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

Roswell is a sweet boy who is neutered, microchipped, and ready to find his person.

If your family would like to meet him at the shelter or learn more about the steps to adopt, CLICK HERE.

UPDATE: Our featured Wet Nose from last week has been adopted! It's really no surprise that cute little Leo is now resting comfortably in his forever home.

The Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter is part of the national 'Clear The Shelters' initiative in an effort to get as many animals as possible adopted by Sunday (8/28).

Those who are looking to adopt through Sunday can name their own price on adoption fees for dogs and cats 7 months or older. Or have adoption fees waived "in exchange for donations of wet cat food, dog/cat collars, and/or leashes."

Obidience class reservations are now open for classes that begin Tuesday, September 6 at 5:30 pm for puppies, and 7 pm for the AKC Canine Good Citizen classes.
