Weekend adoptions can take longer as we need to check references. Please bring vet records for your current pets. This can sometimes allow us to speed up the process for you. Adoptions are done on a first come first served with APPROVED applications only. If you are considering adoption, it is suggested you have your application pre-approved so that there is no waiting period.

Please help us help us help them!

Hi! My name is Bradley

Bradley is a 6 y/o Boxer that was surrendered to the shelter. Bradley is a wonderful boy, but he can be picky about his dog friends and doesn’t like cats. However, we are told he is great with children! Come meet this silly boy!

Hi! My name is Brooke

Brooke is around 2 years old and came to the shelter because her owners could no longer care for her. Brooke has obviously had a tough life in the past, but we know nothing about it. She is shy, and needs a patient home. She is comfortable with us, but has a hard time trusting new people so a slow introduction with a dog-savvy person, more than once before adoption would be best for her. We think she’d be okay with dogs, but not cats. We don’t think a home with children would be appropriate for her at this moment ONLY because she is so timid right now. She is very sweet and she’s totally worth the time!

Hi! My name is Charlie

Charlie is an ~9 y/o Schnauzer/Poodle that came to us because he likes to warn his people of impending danger, like a squirrel, or a leaf in the yard.  He is house trained and knows a few commands. He also enjoys car rides and is good with grooming. Charlie walks well on leash and seems to be good with people. He does however seems to be okay with other dogs, but maybe not cats and he has never been around children that we know of. Charlie is a very sweet boy that would love a home with lots of space to run.


Hi! My name is Cherokee

Cherokee is an 1 y/o lab mix. He first came to us when his owner was moving and is back because he needs more training and is not the best with other animals. Cherokee is a fun loving guy who likes to be outside and go for walks. He knows a few basic commands and is crate trained. Cherokee likes car rides and is very smart! He will learn quickly with the right training and time. Cherokee has a lot of energy so an active home would be best for him.


Hi! My name is Dillon

Dillon is a 6 y/o Shepard mix who is wicked smart and has a ton of energy! Dillon is the type of dog who would do best with a job or in a home where he has other dogs to play with. We are told he does not get along with cats, and we don’t know if he gets along with children yet

Hi! My name is Echo

When Echo came in, we were told she was around 10 years old. However, she does not look or act 10. Echo is very uncomfortable in her kennel so please don’t let her behavior deter you. She is a very sweet and playful girl that loves to go for walks and scoot around the yard. Echo has been through a lot in her lifetime and really wants a home where she can be the only animal, with no kids and live a laid back drama free life. Over the past few months Echo has really opened up and shown us her full personality, and it is quite great. She listens to commands very well if she knows you mean business. She loves to give kisses and sit on your lap, but does not get on the furniture. Echo needs some time in new situations to adjust and calm down. She craves attention so much she can tends to get a little carried away when she first meets people, but acclimates with some time and a good, sturdy toy. Echo has showed us that she is quite the love bug and just wants someone to love her the way she will love you.


Hi! My name is Lance

Lance is a Lab X that is less than a year old. Right now he is very shy when it comes to meeting new people, but with some time, patience and cookies he soon becomes a lap dog. Lance needs a patient home that will not let him off leash as he is too skiddish right now. He came in with Gabe and Willow but has never been around other dogs. Biased on his demeanor though, we are thinking that he would be okay with other dogs and cats, but may be too nervous right now to be around small children. Lance is definitely a cuddle bug and just wants love and attention.

Hi! My name is Mickey

Mickey is a young, maybe 2 y/o, energetic and playful lab/pit bull mix. He loves to run around, whatever season it is! He has lived with cats before but he seems a little too interested in the cats here than preferred. He LOVES people and to play, especially with tennis balls. Mickey is good with teens but can be a little too much for younger children. He understands the commands to “sit” and “lie down”. Mickey loves to play and might be okay with the right dog, but he can be very protective of his people. A family that is outside a lot, going for hikes and adventures would be a great fit for him. He is looking for a calm home, as he doesn’t like when people fight with each other, that has the ability to exercise him daily and give him lots of love and cookies!



Hi! My name is Miles

Miles  is a 3 y/o pit mix that came to us because his owner was going into the hospital. Miles is a sweet boy but can be nervous at first so we don’t recommend he goes to a home with children. He also does not get along with cats. We are told that he likes other dogs and playing fetch.

Hi! My name is Moxie

Moxie is a 3 y/o hound mix that was surrendered to the shelter because of her high energy level and she was not a good fit for the home. Moxie is super sweet and needs a home that will help manage her energy. She is house trained, crate trained and knows some basic commands. She really wants to be the only animal in the home, but might be okay with the right dog. A home without small children or cats is a must for this spunky girl. Moxie would make a great running partner (or hiking partner if she was kept on leash). She is a love bug and loves to give kisses! She does like to test her boundaries so we are looking for a home with experience in dominant type dogs. Moxie is very uneasy when in her kennel so don’t let her barking deter you. She is a completely different dog when she is out in a yard so please ask to take her out so she can melt your heart with her floppy tongue and ears!

Hi! My name is Princess

Princess and Queen came to the shelter because their owner lost their home. Both are 5 years old and are very, very sweet, but we haven’t had them long enough to know their true personalities. These girls have lived together, as well as with another dog, but have never been socialized with dogs other than that. We will update you more as we get to know them better!

Hi! My name is Queen

Princess and Queen came to the shelter because their owner lost their home. Both are 5 years old and are very, very sweet, but we haven’t had them long enough to know their true personalities. These girls have lived together, as well as with another dog, but have never been socialized with dogs other than that. Queen likes to play ball(not fetch because she doesn’t bring it back haha) and to roll around in the grass. Both Queen and Princess need to continue an exercise regimen to go along with their diets. A home with kids would be okay for these two as they have great temperaments.

Hi! My name is Russell

Russell is a bulldog mix that came to us because he does not get along with other animals. Russell is a lover of the humans, but needs to be the only pet with a fenced yard for him to run off his energy. He is probably in the 2-3 y/o range, knows some basic commands and is an overall good dog, other than not liking other animals

Hi! My name is Shiloh

Shiloh is an ~5 y/o Basset/Beagle that came to us because small children make him uncomfortable. He seems to be a ladies man and defiantly wants to be in a home with just adults or older children. We are unsure how he is with other dogs or cats. Shiloh does have a playful side once he is comfortable, but he does need leash and obedience training.

Hi! My name is Tank

Tank is an ~ 3 y/o Bull Terrier X that came to us when he could no longer be cared for. We were informed he came from an abusive situation before and his jaw was broken. It is healed now and can eat normal food, but it is a little misshapen. He is a very sweet boy that loves to give hugs. Tank is easily distracted and needs some training, but he is a fun loving dog that wants to be outside and play or cuddle all day. He lived with dogs in the past and we think he will be okay with cats. We are unsure about small children as he is a jumper. Tank is a great guy that needs someone to invest in him and love him unconditionally.
