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!

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.

Eddie is a 4 month old Pit mix male pup. Eddie is full of energy and will need a forever owner who understands he will need to be taught all his manners, how to walk properly on a leash and they will need to get him proper exercise daily. After all Eddie is just a pup and needs to be taught proper ways to behave. Eddie is adorable and very very playful. He loves to give kisses and he has endless amounts of affection to give. He doesn't have a care in the world and thinks all other dogs will love him. He doesn't understand all other dogs may not have his energy level.

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!

Bosco is a male Mastiff mix who is 5 years old. Bosco, although very large, walks fantastic on a leash and usually lets you lead the way. He knows his manners and is a very good boy. He can be a bit selective with certain dogs, but does great with others, and also does great with kids. Bosco is a big goofball. He walks around like he doesn't have a care in the world and is quite entertaining. Bosco will need to go to a forever home where he has plenty of room to get good exercise, and not feel crammed. He is quite content with a cozy, comfy bed and a chew toy.


Dallas is a 2 year old male mini Poodle who loves to be cuddled and spoiled. He is used to being loved and given treats as well as being able to sleep on the big bed with you at night. Dallas is a doll. He just loves all people he meets and seems to do great with other dogs as well. Dallas would prefer to be carried, but he does love going on his daily walks. If you are looking for a fun, lively upbeat dog then look no further. Dallas is a spunky little guy with a lot of kisses to give.

Aurora is a 1½ year old Shep/Heeler mix. Aurora is very happy and loving dog. So much so that she will try to get so close to you to show her affection that she usually ends up on your lap begging to be pet and showering your face with kisses. Aurora is so selective of other dogs and small animals that we are asking she be an only dog in the home. Aurora begs for attention and is very eager to please. She wants to learn and is looking for an owner who will help her learn a few basic commands. She pulls on the leash and in certain situations, like with vetting, she will get very timid and scared.

Dutch is a 1 year old, male, Black Lab. Dutch is a very sweet boy. He is very submissive with other dogs and gets along with other dogs nicely. Dutch loves to roll over and have his belly scratched and he tends to be a little scared of movements above his head. He shys down away from fast movements. Dutch will be a loyal dog who loves to cuddle and be as close to you as possible. He is a big baby really.

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.
