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 Abby

Abby is a senior girl that wound up at the shelter after her owner had passed away. This girl is most likely a Shepard/Husky mix and she is quite vocal and sad here at the shelter. She does have a playful side and LOVES attention, but overall she is very laid back. She would be okay in a home with cats. Abby would co-exist with another laid back dog, but doesn’t want a dog that will bother her. A home without young kids would be best.

Hi! My name is Canaan

Canaan is a Husky/Shepard/Chow mix that is a little over a year old. Canaan is a playful guy who loves to go for walks and car rides. He has done well with kids in the past but has developed some not so great behaviors in his previous homes that makes us uncomfortable adopting him out to a home with small children. Right now Canaan has a nipping problem that we are working with but it is imperative that his adoptive home continues his training. Canaan is a very smart dog and he will test his boundaries. Being a very high energy dog we are asking for a home with either a fenced in yard, someone who is an avid runner/hiker or has some way so safely get his energy out while keeping him contained. If he is not properly exercised he will revert to naughty behaviors out of frustration. From what we see here we would not consider him safe with cats. Canaan is a beautiful dog, but wants to be the only dog in the home.

Hi! My name is Chevy

Chevy is 11 months old and was surrendered to the shelter with his mom, Paydon, because her owners had to move and could not take them. He is very shy at the moment, but just wants to be loved! Chevy has lived with men, women, children, dogs, cats and hamsters. Right now he is very shy so a home with older or no kids would be ideal, but in time he should be fine. He is definitely a lap dog!


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, and her teeth say she is younger. She hasn’t had the easiest life so she is pretty timid with new people. 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.


Hi! My name is Mickey

Mickey is a young 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. 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. 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 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 can be nervous meeting new people, but warms up with time and treats. 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 hilarious girl. Moxie would make a great running partner (or hiking partner if she was kept on leash). She is a love bug! 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 Paydon

Paydon was surrendered to the shelter with her son, Chevy, because her owners had to move and could not take them. She is shy at first, but is very, very sweet. Paydon is a very outgoing, playful, and vocal.  She is 7 years old and has lived with men, women, children, dogs, cats and hamsters. Paydon knows all of her basic commands, is house and crate trained.

Hi! My name is Roxie

Roxie is a 1-2 y/o Lab X that came to us because she needs some basic training. She is a very active girl that needs exercise. Roxie is okay on leash, is house trained and knows a few basic commands. She is a very people oriented dog, but we are unsure how Roxie will be with other animals as she has never been around them. Right now we are told she needs training on nipping so a home with small children may not be the best match right now. We have not seen this behavior yet, but she has only been with us a short time.

Hi! My name is Tank

Tank is a 4 y/o Mastiff. He is a 100 pound baby! Not only does he walk wonderfully on leash, he loves people and to cuddle. Tank however does not like cats and will do anything to get to them so he needs to be on a leash or in a fenced in yard at all times. He is defiantly a one maybe two person dog and can become very protective of his people so a home with low amounts of foot traffic would be ideal. Tank cannot go to a home with children or other dogs. He is looking for a home where he is the center of attention.

Hi! My name is Winston

Winston is a 4 y/o Walker Hound X that came to us because small children make him nervous. It takes him a few minutes to warm up to people, especially men, but he does love attention. He knows some basic commands, but does need training. Winston walks well on leash, is house trained, likes car rides and baths. He is good with dogs and has lived with cats in the past, but doesn’t really want to share his home with them. Being a hound he needs a home that has a secure way to exercise and contain him at all times. Winston is an active guy that likes to snuggle and sleep under the blankets.
