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 Baxter

Baxter is a 3 y/o Labradoodle. He is a very independent boy meaning he does not enjoy cuddling and likes to keep to himself. Baxter is very smart and needs structure and a consistent routine. He would thrive in a home where he was the only pet and only child. Baxter needs an experienced adopter that will set him up for success. He likes to play ball and loves to go for long walks. Baxter will do anything for a squeaky toy and likes to roll around in the grass.

Hi! My name is Donna

Donna is a female mix that was surrendered to us with her sister Jackie because of owner losing home. She is house trained, likes baths, and also car rides but we haven’t tested her with other dogs or cats. Jackie is very affectionate and loves one on one attention.

Hi! My name is Duke

Duke is a 2 y/o Rotti X that was returned to us because he gets uncomfortable around small children. He can be a bit of a nervous guy at first, but as soon as you take him out for a walk he is your best friend! Duke is house trained, crate trained and know most of his basic commands. He also loves to play catch, go for car rides, walk and swim! Like any dog, Duke is uneasy when new people approach him too quickly or get into his personal space before he is comfortable with them. He wants to have all your attention and does not like to share with other dogs so he would be best as the only dog in the home and he is too rough for cats.

Hi! My name is Gertrude

Gertrude is a beautiful Bull Mastiff mix that came to us as a stray. She is nervous being here and is cautious when meeting new people but once she sees you have some cookies, she starts to relax. Gertrude walks wonderfully on leash but would not do well in a home with cats or kids. We have not tested her with dogs yet. She is a very sweet girl that just needs some time, attention and someone to love her.

Hi! My name is Gino

Gino is the cutest 3 1/2 year old Cocker Spaniel X who was surrendered to us at the shelter early 2015. He has been returned from adoption three times from homes that did not know how to work with his naughty behaviors, and who honestly did not try. He has the CUTEST bum wiggle in the world! This sweetie loves loves loves people, especially those that give him belly rubs or let him sit on their lap! Gino shows serious guarding behaviors with toys so not only does he need a small-child free home, a home with either one adult or no toys is recommended. Gino has never lived with other dogs or cats and thus we also recommend he be the only pet in the home. Don’t let that fool you, though, this little guy has enough love and silliness for a whole house! He is not an overly active pup and spends most of his days here relaxing and napping. If the other dogs get him excited he has the most adorable little singing voice! Gino is not an “in your face” type of snuggle-buddy, he will only take your lap when offered and has impeccable manners. This young cuddly boy is ready to steal you heart and your lap if you’ll let him!

Hi! My name is Gypsy(GiGi)

Gypsy is a 1 1/2 yr old Staffordshire Terrier that was surrendered to us because the landlord said she couldn’t stay. Once she does relax she is sooo sweet and loves to cuddle! Gypsy knows all of her basic commands, though she can use work on her leash walking. Here at the shelter she is VERY upset and unsure, so we understand we may not be seeing her full personality. She really is a beautiful dog that would do best as the only animal until she has time to adjust to a new home. Gypsy is very people oriented and would do best with an experienced adopter. She is our itty bitty baby at only about 35lbs.

Hi! My name is Jackie

Jackie is a 6-7 y/o mix that was surrendered to us with her sister, Donna, when their owner lost their home. Out of the two, Jackie seems to be adjusting the best to life here at the shelter. She does need work on her leash walking and basic commands, but she like to play and is house trained. Jackie has lived with men and women, but has never been around kids so right now we would caution it. We are unsure how she is with cats at the moment. She is an active dog that enjoys car rides. We are still getting to know these two “That 70’s Show” sisters and will update when we do.

Hi! My name is Katey

Katey is a 2 y/o mix that was brought to us as a found dog. She knows her basic commands like sit, come, and lie down. Katey is very shy but wants to please. She does not like cats and wants to chase them. She is said to be good with male dogs, but we have not tested her yet. Katey loves to cuddle and play with toys. She is nervous around new people but warms up quickly with a walk and some treats. Katey has lived with kids 10 and older.

Hi! My name is Lance

Lance is a 3 y/o Boxer that came to us because of his high prey drive. He knows most of his basic commands and walks well on leash. Lance like to ride in the car and is okay with baths. He would do best in a home without cats or other small animals. Lance may be willing to live with a larger dog. Although swimming is not his favorite thing, he does like to wade out in the water. Lance has lived with men and women and would do okay with children 7+.

Hi! My name is Louise

Louise is a young and energetic Staffordshire Terrier who came to us as a stray. We are still getting to know her and her sister, Thelma, and will continue to update their profiles as we learn more about them. Louise is currently working on improving her leash manners–this dog was likely NEVER on a leash before she came to the shelter. That will make finding her forever home a little bit more difficult–she needs somebody who is experienced with and willing to continue her positive reinforcement training that we are doing here. She was likely kept solely outside or with limited access to people, which is an extreme pity, because she LOVES attention. Her manners, however, need quite a bit of work because of her lack of proper socialization up until this time. She tries so hard to please, and is very food motivated, which has made starting her training regimen especially easy! We know that she enjoys romping with Thelma, gives spectacular kisses, and will sit for a treat! Thelma and Louise are looking for a home, together or separate, where they can flourish and learn the proper ways to behave as part of a family.

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 and anxiety. She is house trained, crate trained and knows some basic commands. She can be weary of strangers at first, so she needs a slow and proper introduction. She may be okay with other dogs, but cannot go to a home with cats or small children as they heighten her anxiety level. Moxie would make a great running partner (or hiking partner if she was kept on leash). She is a love bug!

Hi! My name is Ol' Red

Ol’ Red is an older Redbone Coonhound came to us as a stray. Although he may be older(not as old as he looks though) Red has a lot of life and love left to give. He loves people and walks amazingly on leash. Red does know how to sit and sure loves his cookies! We have not had a chance to test him much, but he seems to not care about cats and is interested in dogs. We will test him further. Ol’ Red would love nothing more than to have a home with a sunny spot to sprawl and a family that adores him and will spoil him forever <3

Hi! My name is Rosie

Rosie is a 10 m/o Bulldog that was surrendered to us because her owner could no longer care for her. She is a typical puppy–so she is mouthy and jumpy. Rosie does need work on her basic commands and leash walking. She is very sweet and loves people! We think she may have a hearing impairment so keeping her on a leash or in a fenced in yard is a must. Also, Rosie is on medication for seizures. We are doing tests to learn more about them so right now the medication is 3x a day. Rosie loves to play and romp around in the yard. She is people and food motivated. We think she would do best as the only dog in the home and that small children may be a lot for her right now.

Hi! My name is Tank

Tank is a 4 y/o Mastiff that was surrendered to us because of a move. 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 would only be good with kids over 13, just because he can be jump when he is excited and 150 pounds jumping on you can be a lot for a small kid. Tank met our lovely St. Bernard girl and all he wanted to do was play! We are told he may not get along with male dogs, but we are unsure at the moment. He can be protective over his people so someone with Mastiff experience would be preferred.
