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.

Hi! My name is Beau

Beau is a ~4 y/o lab/shepherd mix that came into the shelter as a stray. We do know that this boy has been bounced around a few different shelters in his life, so we are hoping this is the last and he will find his furever home through us. Beau has an extremely high amount or energy and is very smart, so he needs a very active home. He lived with children, but kind of ignores them here. We think a home without cats would be best for him. Beau seems to get a long with some dogs but not all. He LOVES tennis balls and being outside. Because he is an adventurer a home with a fenced yard would be ideal, but not required as long as there is a safe outlet for his energy where he can be contained. Beau is not much of a cuddler here because he is always on the go, but could be different in a home environment. He is a very sweet and playful boy looking for an active home.

Beau’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and tons of entertainment!

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 Gibson

Gibson is a mix of some sort that came into he shelter as a stray. We think he is on the younger side, maybe a year, and he has a ton of energy! We think he would do fine with other dogs, but he is VERY cat aggressive. He needs an active home that will continue his training. Gibson probably would be a little too much energy for a home with small children and he seems to prefer men over women. He loves to play ball and romp around in the yard.

Gibson’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and a good workout keeping him exercised.

Hi! My name is Mickey

Mickey is a young, maybe 2 y/o, 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, especially with tennis balls. 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. A family that is outside a lot, going for hikes and adventures would be a great fit for him. 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!

Mickey’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and arm workouts from throwing tennis balls.



Hi! My name is Miles

MilesĀ  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 Moxie-- IN FOSTER

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 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 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 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!

Moxie’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and lots of snuggles! Moxie is currently in foster. If you would like to meet her please give us a call and we can set up a time :)

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.

Hi! My name is Shiloh

Shiloh is an ~5 y/o Basset/Beagle that came to us after he was put in an uncomfortable situation with a small child. He seems to be a ladies man and defiantly wants to be in a home with just adults or older children. We think he wants to be the only dog in the home, but would be okay sharing with a cat. Shiloh does have a playful side once he is comfortable and loves belly and butt scratches as well as cuddling. We are very excited about the progress he has made since being here on his leash walking. Shiloh would be on cloud nine in a home with a fenced in yard because he loves to be outside sunbathing.

Shiloh’s adoption comes with a FREE 6 week training session and everyday snuggles!

Hi! My name is Tank

Tank is an ~ 3 y/o Bull Terrier X that came to us when he could no longer be cared for. We were told he cam from an abusive home in the past where his jaw was dislocated. It is healed now and can eat normal food, but it is a little misshapen and we found out he cannot pant properly so he gets overheated faster than other dogs. He does suffer from hearing loss, but we are not sure the extent of it. We are told it could be a side effect of his jaw injury. He is a very sweet boy that loves to give hugs. Tank is easily distracted and needs training, but he is a fun loving dog that wants to be outside and play or cuddle all day. He lived with dogs and cats in the past, but think he needs to be taught how to act around cats again. Tank is a great guy that needs someone to invest in him and love him unconditionally.

Tank’s adoption comes with a free 6 week training class and endless hugs.
