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 Bolt

Bolt is a 2 y/o Lab X that was surrendered to us with a few other dogs because his previous owner could no longer keep them. He is upset that he is here, but is adjusting very quickly. Bolt is good with other dogs and children. He loves to play in the yards and know some of his basic commands.

Hi! My name is Boomer

Boomer is a 10 y/o Red Tick hound. He is a goof ball! Boomer loves to be outside and going for walks! He is also crate trained and has lived with another dog. We would suggest a home without young children because he can be protective over food. Boomer is not a fan of cats, but has never tried to hurt one by any means. Boomer walks great on a leash and loves to ride in the car. Just look at that face!


Hi! My name is Chico

Chico is a super loving, silly, and fun guy of only 6 years old. He is on the extra large size (he needs to lose a good chunk of weight), but that only means he has more love to offer!! Chico wiggles all over when meeting new people or getting butt scratches, and boy is it funny to watch all of him wiggle! He is a Rottie mix that came from the shelter four years ago and unfortunately was returned to us at no fault of his own. This boy loves to play fetch, with not just one ball, but two. He knows all of his basic commands and walks amazingly on the leash. Chico enjoys his car rides, is completely house trained and crate trained, and gets along with people of all ages! Chico does not interact very well with cats, however, so we recommend a home without cats. This happy, exuberant boy looks forward to meeting you and your family, and will be a phenomenal addition to any household!


Hi! My name is Kato

Kato is a 7 month old Pit/Mastiff mix that was surrendered to the shelter with his brother, Krunch. Kato really loves attention, but is a little rough at first. He LOVES to ride in the car. He is a puppy so he does need training for sure. Kato is improving on his leash walking everyday. He loves people and food, so that helps with his training. We think he would do best as the only animal in the home and would be okay with children 13 and over (he can get jumpy and may knock over a smaller child) He absolutely LOVES his belly scratched! And will do anything for some lovins and is soooo soft!




Hi! My name is Keanu

Keanu is a Hound X and about 10 months old. He was surrendered to the shelter because his owner moved. Keanu has a lot of energy and wants to run around and play. He has lived with children, dogs, and cats. Some cats don’t like how strong he comes on, but he just wants to play. Keanu knows all of his basic commands, but does need some leash training. He likes to ride in the car, give kisses, and get butt scratches!

Hi! My name is Sparky

This adorable, feisty fellow is named Sparky! He is a one year old cattle dog mix, and an abundance of energy! Sparky was rescued from the south by a local family, who after a week of having him in their home found him to be way WAY too much for their family. Sparky is highly intelligent and clever to boot! He adores to be snuggled and sit on your lap, and will give you kisses if you allow it. Sparky spent the last several months of his life in the southern shelter, and had absolutely no training done while he was there (and seems to have had none ever). That being said, he does WONDERFULLY on the leash, and is such a quick learner!
He has several naughty habits, and we are working on these diligently at the shelter. Sparkles is responding phenomenally well to clicker training, and we are currently teaching him all of his basic commands. Because of this, we consider him a baby in all aspects of training–he needs to learn it all, and he needs a home experienced with feisty, super smart, and clever breeds, because he WILL take advantage of you if he knows he can. At this time, our spunky Sparky has no level of bite inhibition when playing, we mean NONE, and is therefore not suitable for a home with any children. We also do not find his behavior towards cats to be safe enough to live with them in a new home. Sparky will continue to get more exposure to other dogs here at the shelter, and we will update soon as to whether or not we find him suitable to be second dog.
Sparky is waiting for his ideal, experienced person to come along and fall in love with his sassy-ness and smarts!



Hi! My name is Trapper

Trapper is a Beagle mix that is about 6 months old. He was surrendered to us because he had a broken leg. He had surgery to repair his back leg but because of that he is on restricted exercise which means he cannot run around, be off leash, or go for walks longer than just going to the bathroom. Trapper does not like this. He is very upset having to be in a crate and can be a little naughty sometimes because of it. We don’t fault him for that because of his situation. He is however very curious about other dogs but still needs to figure out cats. He is very food and toy motivated so training should be rather easy. We think Trapper would be best in a home without children because his leg was broken by a child so we have not introduced him to kids again yet. He LOVES to play and will definately keep you entertained! Trapper does need a home that will stick with his rehab and show him the love he deserves and he will be a wonderful lifelong companion!


Hi! My name is Zeke

Zeke is a 1 1/2 y/o Hound mix that has been handed a hard deck. He was surrendered to us the first time after being with a family for 1 day because the rescue they got him from did not tell them he is not good with cats. Zeke was adopted out shortly after but came back to us again after less than 2 weeks because his adopter decided he just didn’t want him anymore. Zeke has so much personality, loves to play and is good with other dogs and kids! He is a sweet, and playful dog that just really wants a forever home and someone to love him. Despite all of the instability he has had so far in his life, it hasn’t affected him much. Once you start patting him he rubs all over you and likes to sit between your legs.
