Java is available for adoption because a member of her family developed allergies, and they had to turn to HOPE Safehouse for help to rehome her.

At just 7 years old, Java still has a long life ahead of her, and she’s ready to find her for real, furever family. Java is a Lab mix, weighs about 45 pounds, is completely housebroken and “very well-behaved.”

“(Java) is a lovely girl. She lost her home due to allergies and is looking for a new forever home,” HOPE Safehouse tells Racine County Eye. “She gets along great with other dogs and loves kids.”

To meet Java, call HOPE Safehouse at (262) 634-4571, email them at or visit
