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.

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.

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.

Sandy

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.
