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 Brooke

Brooke is around 2 years old and came to the shelter because her owners could no longer care for her after she had her puppies. Brooke has obviously had a tough life in the past, but we know nothing about it except she is frightened by men. 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, cuddly and she is totally worth the time! Brooke would prefer a home with women, but could warm up to a man with time and treats.

Brooke’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 weeks training session and a forever wiggly dog butt.

Hi! My name is Bud

Bud is a 1 1/2- 2 y/o Pitty who originally came to us in the beginning of the year, was adopted but then returned because they had to move and again because he was nervous around an energetic child. Bud is an energetic, silly boy who needs a home without other animals. He loves hiking and playing in the yard, and swimming! He is a great boy who needs to find his perfect fit

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.

Echo’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 weeks training session and lots of kisses.


Hi! My name is Gibson

Gibson is a mix of some sort that came into he shelter as a stray. We think he is on the younger side, maybe a year, and he has a ton of energy! We think he would do fine with other dogs, but he is VERY cat aggressive. He needs an active home that will continue his training. Gibson probably would be a little too much energy for a home with small children and he seems to prefer men over women. He loves to play ball and romp around in the yard.

Gibson’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and a good workout keeping him exercised.

Hi! My name is Lassie--ADOPTION PENDING

Lassie is an ~1 y/o Hound X(?) that came to us with her “brother” Ronnie. They are both very shy at the moment, but warm up pretty quickly when you spend some time with them. Lassie has lived with men, women, children, dogs and cats. We have not had a chance to test them ourselves, but they have a very sweet disposition. she does need some work on leash training and basic commands, but she is getting better everyday.


Hi! My name is Luka

Luka is an ~ 1 y/o Lab X that came to us originally because his owner had to move, and is back with us because he gets over excited in some situations. He has had a few homes so he does have some anxiety about being left alone, but he is crate trained and seems to do okay when he is in the crate. Luka prefers men and really thrives in a one on one situation, but has lived with men and women. He would do best as the only pet because other dogs can be intimidating to him so he doesn’t always respond well and cats are fun for him to chase. Luka would also benefit from being the only pet so he can have consistent training and attention. He loves to play ball, but doesn’t always want to give it back. Once he knows that he has someone to stand up for him and take control he is very sweet and loves attention. Luka would love to be in an active home where he can have lots of exercise.

Hi! My name is Miles

MilesĀ  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 a slow introduction works best. He also does not get along with cats. We have seen him be playful with other dogs, but only some other dogs. Miles has a lot of energy he would love to burn off playing outside and going for hikes (on leash) or maybe even runs! Children make Miles very uncomfortable and uneasy so a home with no child interaction would be ideal for this handsome boy.

Miles adoption comes with a FREE 6 weeks training session and lots of exercise.

Hi! My name is Moxie-- IN FOSTER

Moxie is a 3 y/o hound mix that was surrendered to the shelter. 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. 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, loves to give kisses and play ball! She does like to test her boundaries so we are looking for a home with experience in dominant type dogs. Moxie has enjoyed doggie day care with a great pack of dogs.

Moxie’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and lots of snuggles! Moxie is currently in foster. If you would like to meet her please give us a call and we can set up a time :)

Hi! My name is Ronnie

Ronnie is an ~2 y/o Lab X(?) that came to us with his “sister” Lassie. He is a little nervous here still so he likes to tell you about it, but calms down when you start patting him. Ronnie has lived with men, women, children and cats. He does need work on his leash walking and basic commands, but he very much wants to please and give love. We have learned that he can bond to one person and become protective of them so he needs a home where everyone handles him equally.

Hi! My name is Russell

Russell is a bulldog mix that came to us after he was purchased online under the impression he was safe with all animals but he is not. 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 big cuddly marshmallow. Russell has been working very hard on his obedience and his ability to be around other animals without getting worked up. He is very smart and is looking for a home that will challenge him mentally and continue his training. It is very important for a dog like Russell to have a proactive owner that will always advocate for him and set him up for success.

Russell’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and endless entertainment.
