Adoptable Dogs

HSCI always has a variety of dogs looking for their forever home: big, small, mixed breed, purebred. Our pets are vetted and handled regularly by staff and volunteers so they are healthy and socialized!

As new dogs come in and others go home, we update this page as quickly as possible, so keep in mind all dogs available may not have a photo yet. We encourage you to visit the Pet Adoption Center in person!  You'll find all you need to know about our adoption application process on our Adoption Information.

And if you want to see photos of the pets that have already found new homes, visit our Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Featured Dog!

Clover is a 6 year female Puggle mix. She is a talkative girl who gets so excited to see people and to have interaction. Going on walks and playing outside are her two favorite things, with treats easily coming in close second. Clover is energetic and likes to investigate anything and everything. She is very smart and often times looks to people to learn new commands or to give her something to focus on. Clover is looking for her forever home and is hoping you will come meet with her today!

Clover has been sponsored by a gracious anonymous sponsor!  My rescue dogs, Max and Oscar, want you to adopt me!

Alice is a 4 year old female Chihuahua. This little girl is all sass. She loves to talk when you walk away until she gets your attention. She loves to jump in your lap and be carried around like a little princess. She is the type of dog that will cuddle up next to you all day long. A warm blanket and cozy bed and this little girl is content. Alice is a small Chihuahua, and with that comes the typical small dog personality, which means she does get scared if you approach her to fast. She also is scared of new people she does not know and can get mouthy. We are looking for a forever home that understands Alice gets scared around too many fast movements and does not feel safe. We are asking that she goes to a home with no kids. Alice is looking for a quiet home and if she gets that she really is the cutest, sweetest dog ever.

Jax is a male 1 year old Golden mix. Jax is a talker. He is one of those dogs who barks and barks and barks in his kennel. This is just his way of getting your attention to let him out. He isn't mean at all when he is barking he is just trying to get your attention. Once he has it he calms down and is the happiest dog ever. He is easily excited and LOVES to play! Jax will need an active owner who gets him plenty of exercise. Jax loves to play fetch and is very good at bringing the ball back to you and dropping it. If you are looking for a dog that will keep you on your toes and provide plenty of entertainment, Jax is your dog!

Scarlett is a 6 year old female Treeing Walker Coonhound. She is a bit of a clumsy goofball but she is a sweetheart none-the-less. She loves to be outside and getting fresh air, and she will need proper exercise to keep weight off. She came into the shelter a little overweight. Scarlett is an active-minded girl or as we like to say a bit A.D.D. She finds a smell and follows it and after that, that is all she focuses on. She would be content with a soft bed and an owner who will let her curl up next to them to sleep at night.

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.
