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 Archie

Archie is an ~ 2 y/o Lab/Pointer(?) X that came to us because of a move. He is a very energetic boy that loves people and to play. He is a little hefty and will need a diet but he is very willing to exercise to work it off! Archie has lived with cats in the past, but can be a little overzealous around them. He also seems to get along with most dogs and has lived with kids before. We would caution small children mainly because of his size (he is 90+ pounds) and he does tend to jump, so small children could be knock over on accident. Archie is very talkative guy and he will let you know when he wants something, attention, to go out, to play etc. We are still getting to know him and his quirks and will update when we do.

Hi! My name is Brady

Brady is an ~6 y/o Mix that came to us when he could longer be cared for. He seems to be okay with some dogs, mostly female, but could easily be too much for a laid back dog. Brady is looking for a home with no cats or small children. Kennel life is taking a toll on him as he has started to go a little stir crazy so please don’t let him deter you if you visit him in the kennels. He has tons of potential but does need training. Brady is crate and house trained. He very much wants to please his people and loves butt scratches. He is not a fan of car rides, but he loves to go for walks and hikes. Brady needs a lot of exercise and some more training. An stable, low traffic and active home that is experienced with high energy dogs would be the best situation for Brady.


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 the right submissive dog, but not cats. We don’t think a home with children would be appropriate for her. She is very sweet, cuddly and she is totally worth the time! Brooke would do best in a home with women. Brooke’s photos were done by Jill Piper at Furry Kids Pet Photography and you can see more photos at her site

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

Brooke weighs 66 lbs


Hi! My name is Cash

Cash is a 1 y/o mastiff mix that was surrendered because he can be a bit overprotective. This boy is a GIANT goofball that has a ton of energy and needs direction and training. He is a BIG boy who knows how big he is and will use it to his advantage. He needs someone with strong leadership skills. Cash knows some basic commands, likes car rides, and has lived with children, but he becomes overprotective of them. He is new to us so we have not tested him with other dogs or cats yet. We will update you as we get to know him better

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. 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 photos were done by Jill Piper at Furry Kids Pet Photography and you can see more photos at her site

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

Echo weighs 63 lbs



Hi! My name is Ginger

Ginger is a 7 y/o lab mix that came in with her ‘brother’, Zilla, because their owner passed away. Both are new to us but we are told that Ginger is good kids and dogs, but not cats. She does know some basic commands like sit and stay, tolerates car rides, and chases deer :) She is house trained and crate trained. We will update you as we get to know these two better!

Hi! My name is Izzy

Izzy is an ~7 y/o Beagle that came to us with her brother, Pete, after a divorce. Izzy LOVES to play, especially with her brother. She is said to be good with dogs, cats and kids, but we have only seen her with her brother so far. Izzy is house trained and has been on an invisible fence. She is a Beagle and acts like a Beagle, so a home with breed experience would be great. Izzy knows most basic commands and likes car rides. We would love for Izzy and Pete to go to a home together.



Hi! My name is Khleo

Khleo is an ~4 y/o Pitty that was surrendered to us when she could no longer be cared for. She is house and crate trained, knows basic commands, likes car rides and baths. Khleo sometimes needs a slow introduction with new people, but is very sweet once she warms up. She has lived with teens and adults. We are unsure how she is with dogs and cats at the moment. Kleo loves to sleep on the couch and snuggle.

Hi! My name is Kubota and Angel

Kubota and Angel came to us when their owner lost her home. They have always been together and love each other a lot, so we are asking that they go to a home together. We could call them a Chihuahua and a Pitbull, but we like to refer to them as small gargoyle and large gargoyle. Angel is ~5 years old and a can be a little shy, but loves to be with her sister and her people. Kubota is ~9 years old and very smart. She knows all her commands and a few other fancy tricks. Kubota however, does not like cats. They are both on the heavier side and could use a diet and some exercise, but they are both so sweet and would make great companions for someone. These two girls are two peas in a pod. Kubota LOVES the water, even a kiddie pool! Angel prefers to be the lifeguard and toss toys in for her sister. We are still learning about these two and will update when we know them more.

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 a slow introduction works best. He also does not get along with cats or 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. He is very good at amusing himself outside, so a fenced in yard would be ideal for him. Miles is a big cuddler, loves human attention and treats. Miles’ photos were done by Jill Piper at Furry Kids Pet Photography and you can see more photos at her site

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

Miles weighs 58 lbs


Hi! My name is Moxie

Moxie is a 5 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. However, Moxie does get overprotective of her home, and therefore needs a home experienced in that type of dog

Moxie’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and lots of snuggles!

Hi! My name is Pete

Pete is an ~7 y/o Beagle that was surrendered with his sister, Izzy, after a divorce. Pete is great with everyone and is said to be good with children, dogs and cats. So far we have only seen him with his sister, but he has a great temperament. Pete knows some basic commands and likes car rides, but he is a Beagle and acts like a beagle. Pete has been trained to an invisible fence and is house trained. We would love to find a home for Pete and Izzy together.

Hi! My name is Sadie

Sadie is a 5 y/o basset hound mix that came to us because she was aggressive toward the other female dog in the home. We are told she is great with kids and cats, but is a bit shy at first. She will bark at new people when she first meets them. She knows her basic commands and likes car rides and baths. She is new to us so we will update you as we know more

Hi! My name is Sam

Sam is an ~ 3 1/2 y/o Lab/Hound that came to us because he can be protective over his people. Sam has lived mostly with women and teens and can be a little weary around men until he is comfortable. He knows basic commands, likes car rides(although he does get a little motion sick) and playing outside. Sam does best with slow introductions to new people but is very sweet and cuddly when he is comfortable. When he is on leash Sam can be a great hiking partner. Not only is Sam house and crate trained he is good with cats and enjoys playing with other dogs. The perfect home for Sam would be with an active, experienced owner that is willing to work with him and maybe doesn’t have a lot of visitors.

Hi! My name is Ticker

Ticker is a 1 y/o old Blue Tick/Walker Hound that was surrendered because he didn’t want to be a hunting dog. He is your typical hound- loud and follows his nose- so a home that is familiar with the breed would be ideal. He gets along with other dogs, but we would suggest a home with no cats or small children. Ticker needs lots of exercise and training, but he is very smart and loves his cookies :)
