Adoptable Dogs

The pets pictured are available for adoption. Please be aware that not all of our pets are available for viewing on our website, as our population changes daily with new animals coming in and others going home. We encourage you to visit our Pet Adoption Center. Please visit the Adoption Information webpage for details on the Adoption Procedure and a link to an adoption application. Adopted pets are moved to the Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Dogs that have the Very Important Pet icon Very Important Pet! with their bio have been at our shelter for over one year and they qualify for a reduction in adoption fees. If you visit our shelter, look for the VIP logo on the kennels to see which dogs qualify. See one of our adoption counselors for details.


Mystery
Featured Dog!

Mystery is a 7 year old male black Lab mix. Mystery was an outside dog most of his life, so he was never taught his manners and doesn't do the best on a leash. But he is certainly a smart dog trying to learn. Mystery will not do good in a home with small animals or children and will need a lot of exercise. He is so eager to learn and he loves getting treats, so training should be easy with a little consistency. Give this sweet boy a chance and he will show you he is full of love and affection. Mystery was not properly taken care of before coming to the shelter, so it took a while to figure out what was causing his loss of hair. We have discovered that Mystery has a thyroid issue and will need to be on a daily medication to control this. His hair has started to grow back and he is doing so much better.

Rayna

Rayna is a 1 year old female Herding mix. Rayna has one of the cutest faces I have ever seen. It will melt your heart!  She is a lively, energetic girl who loves to give kisses. She knows her basic commands of "Sit" and "Lay Down." She is a strong girl with a heart of gold. Rayna is fabulous with children of all ages. She would sit under the highchair to wait for fallen pieces of food. She is good with other dogs and does wonderful at dog parks. Since Rayna is only one, she still needs a bit of work on a few things, like being accustomed to nail trimmings, not to pull when on a leash, and to not get so excited when she sees other doggies, as she really wants to play, play, play. Rayna wants to meet you and show you how loveable and kind-hearted she truly is.

Mac

Mac is a 3 year old male mix. He is a bit over weight and needs his new owner to understand that diet, exercise and no treats are the key to success. He is such a sweetheart who is pretty happy-go-lucky with most of everything. He doesn't seem to mind other dogs his size and he just wants to sit by your side and be pet when you get him out of his kennel. He is gentle and likes to lounge the day away.

Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood is a 6 year old female Spitz mix. She is a beautiful girl with a playful personality. She loves to play and focus her mind on tasks. She will need an owner who understands burning off some of her energy is important. She is excited and eager to get your attention and praise. She loves to go on her daily walks and does know her basic commands of "Sit" "Stay" and "Lay Down."

Jax

Jax is a 4 month old, male, Lab mix. He is very much still a playful pup that will need an owner who will be consistent and patient with him. He will need to learn his manners and how to not jump up on people, but these are all things that can be taught in a short amount of time, with his intelligence level. Jax is adorable and curious. He is nosey and entertaining. He is in the gumpy, clumsy stage so watching him play is adorable. Jax loves sqeaky toys and loves to go on his daily walks outside.

Fawna

Fawna is a 2½ year old female Shepherd mix. Fawna is a sweet girl who loves to take daily walks and get her exercise. She loves to think she is a lap dog despite her size. She will great you with a face full of kisses and knows her manners. Fawna will need to be an only dog in the home and probably will not do good at dog parks type settings. She loves to be the queen, so we just ask that her new owners do not have any other pets.
