Available Dogs

The 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!

This page is updated frequently as new dogs come in and others go home. Pet bios are subject to change. Adoption application process details are included on our Adoption Information page. To see photos of pets that have found new homes, visit the Galleries of Adopted Pets.

If you are unable to adopt any pets at this time, consider helping a pet with a Pet Sponsorship. To those supporters who have sponsored one or more pets, Thank You!

~  Kal  ~

Hello, I'm Kal the one-to-two-year-old male brindle hound mix dog. I'm a really timid guy and need a lot of time to warm up to someone new. Shyness means I probably won't jump on you when we meet, but it doesn't mean I'm any less excited to get to know you!  I just need some gentle coaxing and love. If you have a family, the kids have to be ages 12 or older. I can make friends with other dogs really easily!  When it comes to cats, I'm not very interested. They can do their thing and I'll do mine. While we do that you're YOUR thing and submit an application for me, today!

~  Tess  ~

Hi!  My name is Tess. I'm a two-year-old female brindle and white plot hound mix dog. I'm very well-behaved. I know sit and will wait for a treat!  I'd do well in a house with kids ages six and up, but I can't be with other cats and dogs. I love toys and playing with them though!  We could run all around the yard while you throw me a toy to chase after. The shelter is a cool place to hang out, but my next stop is a forever home. Do you have room for me in your family? Submit an application, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

~  General  ~

Hi!  My name is General. I'm a two-year-old male Brindle Terrier Mix dog. I absolutely LOVE humans!  They know how to play and I love to play with them!  Do you have toys and a big fenced-in yard for me? If you have kids at home, that is ok, but they will have to be ages six and up. I'm going to be on my best behavior in a house that doesn't have other pets. Do you like to go on walks? I love walks too!  I'd be a great hiking dog for someone who would keep me on a harness and leash. I can't wait to come to my forever home with you!  Submit an application, today.

~  Baby  ~

Hi!  My name is Baby. I guess I'm not quite one anymore, but I think the name still suits me - because I'm cute!  I'm a five-month-old female white pitbull mix puppy. When it comes to cats and other dogs, I'm still young enough to learn how to act around them. I'm hoping my future forever home will have someone who will take training seriously so I can learn how to play and socialize with people, dogs and cats!  Do you have room in your forever home and heart for me? Submit an application, today.

~  Kipp  ~

Hello, my name is Kipp!  I'm a one-year-old male red and white vizsla mix dog. I'm a super high energy dog who is just starting to transition from being a puppy!  I love toys and other dogs. If you have cats at home, I may not be a good match because I still need to learn some manners around them. If you have kids at home, they do have to be 12 years old and up because of my energy and size!  I'm hoping for a forever home with a big, fenced-in backyard too. Have room for me? Submit an application, today!

~  Diamond  ~

Hi up there!  My name is Diamond. I'm a two-year-old female tricolor shepherd mix dog. Do you like my ear? I'm using it to wave at you!  Just kidding, it kind of plopped up there after I was done running around. Speaking of, I still have some energy to spend!  I'm a really sweet girl who knows how to sit. I'm not always interested in toys, but treats always get my attention. I could get along in a household with kids age 12 and up, could maybe get along with other cats, but would definitely love a canine brother or sister. Can't wait to adopt me? I can't wait to come home!  Submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $225.

Hey everybody!  My name is Maisey. I'm an almost four-year-old female black and white pointer mix dog. Do you like my smile? I'm smiling just for you!  I can't go to a home with other dogs, but I could get along with cats and kids ages six and older. I know how to sit, I love toys and am super excited to meet other dogs. Do you have a brother or sister I could meet? Or maybe you could adopt me with one of my friends here at the shelter!  I can't wait to see what happens. Submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

~  Poppy  ~

Hello!  My name is Poppy!  I'm three years old and I am red and white Staffordshire mix female dog. Do you like my smile? I was practicing it all day for my photoshoot. I'm a well-trained gal who knows 'sit', 'shake' and 'lie down'!  I'm very excitable and love to play with people and other dogs. If you have cats or small animals in home, I won't be compatible!  If you have other dogs or toys at home though, I think we'd be the perfect pairing. Do you have room in your forever home for me? Submit an application, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

Hey everyone!  I'm Chance, a seven-month-old pit-bull mix. I am a playful but well-mannered, and I'd love to find my forever playmate!  I love to play with my squeaky toys, and I do well with other dogs!  I will need a home with children eight and up because of my energy and size. Are we a good match? Send in your application online today!

~  Kola  ~

Hey, are you looking at me? My name is Kola. I'm a one-year-old female Cattle Dog mix. I'm a gentle soul, but I'm first place when it comes to energy!  ENERGY!  ENERGY!  If you like to go for runs, I'd love to join you. I've been dreaming of my forever home every night. I can't go to a home with kids younger than eight years old, but I'm hoping your family has a few people who can give me the attention I've been longing for. If your family has another dog already, I'd love a brother or sister!  Cats would be ok too, but I'm pretty impartial towards them. Do you have room in your home for me? Submit an application today.

~  Elvira  ~

Hi!  Hey!  Hello!  It's me!  Elvira. I'm a one-year-old female black and white terrier/pit bull mix. I'm a really friendly and sweet girl here at the shelter. Do you like my smile? I'm doing it for you!  I'm hoping to find a forever home with a big, fenced-in backyard where I can run around and play. If I'm not doing that, I'll probably be right next to you. I love being next to my people!  Speaking of, if you have a lot of people at home that is fine, but they have to be eight years of age or older!  I'm good with other cats and dogs, but I do need a slow introduction because I can be shy. Submit an application, today!

Hi, all. I'm Brasco. I'm a one-and-a-half-year-old silver brindle pit mix male. I'm a big fella that likes to play and I love toys!  I like to be outdoors and run, run, run!  I would like a home with a big yard or near grassy areas where I can frolic to my heart's content. I need a home with children 12 years old and up. I need to be the only pet in the home. I want all the attention on me!  Can you provide this for me? Submit an online application today.

Hi there!  My name is Lois Lane and I'm a two-year-old female American Staffordshire mix dog. I'm looking for a SUPER hero who can sweep me off my paws and take me to my forever home!  I need a home where I can be the main character. Other cats and dogs are ok from a distance, but I like my space!  If you have kids at home, they need to be 9-12 or older. Kids can make me a little nervous, but I'm comfortable around adults who have patience and love for me. Do you have room in your heart and home for a girl like me? I need a hero!  Submit an application, today.

~  Luke  ~

Hello ladies and gentlemen!  My name is Luke. I'm an almost one-year-old male black lab mix dog. I'm a very friendly dog who knows sit. I can go to a home with other dogs and kids ages five and up, but I don't mix well with cats. Do you have a forever home with lots of space for me to run around in? I might not be a puppy anymore, but I'm certainly no grown-up. I still want to play!  If you have room for me in your forever home, please submit an application for me today. My adoption fee is $225.

~  Bo  ~

Hi!  I'm Bo. I'm a two-year-old male black lab mix dog. I'd fit into a home with other dogs, cats and kids ages five and older!  I know sit and am very food motivated. Do you have a favorite toy you like to play with? Mine is the tennis ball!  I love to chase after it when the shelter staff throw it for me. I've been watching the tennis matches and I don't think any of those players could out-run me. Do you have a forever home for me? My adoption fee is $225.

Picture of Bones the dog.

Adopted

~  Bones  ~

Hey everybody!  Do you like my smile? I made it for you!  My name is Bones. I'm a one-year-old male black and white pointer mix dog. I'm a really friendly guy who knows sit and shake!  I have VERY high energy and love to jump. My excitement level is still really high, so I can't be around other cats or very young children for now. Just kids age 12 and up!  I could probably get along with another dog who could keep up with my energy. If you have a forever home where I could run, run, run and play, play, play with another dog, submit an application for me today!  My adoption fee is $225.

Adopted

~  Amelia  ~

Hi everybody!  My name is Amelia. I'm a three-year-old female tricolor Border Collie mix dog. I'm a really friendly and kind girl who knows sit, likes to play with other dogs and does well with cats!  I could even go home to a household with kids in it. I don't mind playing with toys and people, but I'm mostly interested in cuddling!  I can't help it. Even when they had me out for my photoshoot I just kept lying down for belly rubs. If you have a forever home where the people are kind and also like cuddles, submit an application for me today!  My adoption fee is $225.

~  Patrice  ~

Hello, my name is Patrice!  I'm a two-year-old female dachshund mix dog. I can't believe they made me pose for this photo!  I'm a little embarrassed, but... guess I'm pretty cute!  I love working with the staff here and enjoy my walks and play time with them, but other dogs and cats make me nervous. I need to be the only dog in my forever home. If you have toys, I'd love to play!  If you have kids at home, please make sure they are age 12 or older. I have a long life ahead of me and a body that's even longer. Do you have a forever home big enough for me? Submit an application, today.
