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.


A.J.
Featured Dog!

A.J. is a black and white 7 year old male lab mix. A.J. needs a home where he can rely on consistency and have loveable owners who understand he has a bit of anxiety. He needs to be fattened up with a good diet and given proper exercise. A.J. is a good boy who knows his manners. He will "Sit" when you ask him to and he is learning to "Shake." A.J. looks for affection anyway he can get it. Whether it be a nudge to your leg or a wet nose jumping up to hit your hand; A.J. will let you know he is by your side. A.J. will make a great pet and a loyal companion.

A.J. has been sponsored by a gracious anonymous sponsor!  On behalf of my rescue dogs, Max and Oscar, come find your true love. 


Ian

Ian came into the shelter with his sister from a hoarding situation in which neither were properly socialized. In a very short amount of time Ian has made a huge turnaround and is a completely different dog. Ian is a 2 year old Hound mix. He is a care free, happy-go-lucky type of dog. He likes to lounge and go with the flow. He will need an owner who understands he was not properly socialized so he gets attached to his care giver quickly and wants to be by their side to feel safe. Ian seems to like other dogs and feel like he is in a pack. He loves going on his daily walks but he isn't big on toys as we are not sure he quite yet knows what they are.

Alex

Alex is a 7-year-old Black Lab with a sweet personality. He loves people of all ages and doesn't mind other dogs. He's a social boy who needs some extra TLC. He enjoys his daily walks and his time outside in the pens. If you love the breed and are looking for a companion stop by today and ask to see Alex. He will win your heart with his big brown eyes.

Reggie

Reggie is a 4 year old Rat Terrier. Boy is this little guy a goof ball. With his funky ears and his tini-tiny body, he just is so stinking cute. He loves to curl up in your lap and get all the attention he can get. He is a cuddle bug who has a spunky playful side to him. He doesn’t need much room and is very content with a soft bed and a toy or two.

Scarlett

Scarlett is a 6 year old female Treeing Walker Coonhound. She is great with children and other dogs and she loves raw hide chews. She is a sweet girl who loves to give kisses and be affectionate. Her nose will take her anywhere so smells something new, so she will need proper supervision while she is outside. She will need a good amount of exercise so Scarlett is hoping to find an active, fun family to call her own.

Titan

Titan is a 3 year old male Min.Pin. / Boston Terrier mix. Titan loves all people as he is very affectionate and playful. He loves to play fetch and walk around on his hind legs. He has been known to love laying on freshly cleaned laundry, so make sure you spoil Titan with some soft bedding.

Chevy

Chevy is a 6 year old Lab mix. Chevy needs an owner who understands he will be on a daily medication for life for his Thyroid issue. As long as Chevy is on his medication he is getting better daily and is doing great. Chevy needs an owner who will go slow with him and understand he was not properly socialized growing up. Chevy loves to play and wags his tail constantly to show how happy he is. He loves to go on walks and cannot wait to find his forever home.

Chevy has been sponsored by Angela & Brandon!  In memory of our little guy, Nemo. 

Sandy

Sandy is a 1 year old hound mix. Sandy is a very vocal little girl who will need an owner who understands she was not socialized as much as normal puppies should be. So she can be a bit timid and needs an owner who will take their time with her and not approach her to fast. Sandy is a lively fun girl, she just needs to be taught manners. She is learning how to walk on a leash and is making great progress.

Tate

Tawny

Tawny is a 2 year old Hound mix. She is a timid girl who came from a hoarding situation. So she will need an owner who understands she needs them to show her new surroundings. She will need to be shown that new places and people are good. She is a very sweet girl who loves getting attention, she was just not socialized and does not understand the way a normal dog does. It takes her more time and she will need a dedicated owner to teach her toys are fun and that treats are yummy. Tawny wants affection and seeks an owner she can trust to spoil and love her. She loves to go on walks and be outside. Tawny will need proper supervision if left outside, because she can climb fences and her nose takes her anywhere it smells something fun.

Buckeye

Buckeye is a 5½ year old male Coonhound. Buckeye is good with children and other dogs but does get scared very easily. It seems Buckeye was not socialized properly, so even tree leaves rustling outside will spook him. Buckeye is shy and very gentle. He loves getting exercise and going for walks. He follows his nose with any new smell. Buckeye will be a bit timid at first but once he is shown some consistency, he will make a great companion.
