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 Annie

Anna is an ~8 y/o Husky that came to the shelter because her owner passed away. Being a husky, she will run is she gets loose and probably chase cats. We are also told that she does not get along with female dogs, although she lived with one. We haven’t had her long so we will update you as we get to know her better!


Hi! My name is Brady

Brady is an ~5-6 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. He has tons of potential but does need training. Brady is crate and house trained. He very much wants to please his people, enjoys car rides and butt scratches. An 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 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 Izzy

Izzy is an 8 y/o boxer mix that came to the shelter because she wasn’t doing well with the babies crawling in the house. she would do best in a home with older children because the older child in the house was her best friend. She likes car rides and knows some basic commands, but needs some work on her leash walking. She also loves to play fetch and swim! We haven’t tester her yet with dogs or cats.

Hi! My name is Lassie

Lassie is an ~1 y/o Hound X(?) that was surrendered to the shelter. She is slowly coming around, but is shy and takes a while to warm up.  Lassie has lived with men, women, children, dogs and cats. She is a sweet, energetic girl that would like a quiet household with someone to help her work on her confidence. Lassie does need some work on leash training and basic commands, but she is getting better everyday.


Hi! My name is Luka

Luka is a ~1 y/o lab mix that was surrendered to the shelter. Luka is high energy fellow who needs someone who will help him channel his energy, both physically and mentally. Luka is a smart boy who does know his basic commands. He does not do well with cats, but may get along with the right dog. We do not recommend children due to his energy level. An active, dog-experienced, adult only home would probably be best for Luka

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. 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 Oakley

Oakley is a very sweet boy that was found on the side of the road. He can be a hard dog to crack, but once he gets used to you he gives you the, “Thank you, I love you” eyes. We don’t think Oakley has had much love so far in his life because he doesn’t know how to reciprocate it and is just learning how to play. To our surprise, he walks wonderfully on leash. We have not officially tested him with dogs, but he just seems to ignore them unless they come at him. Cats are probably not going to be a good match for him right now. Oakley is a good dog that needs a home that will train him, understand his subtle affection and that will show him the love that he has never gotten.

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.
