This process can and may take 2-3 weeks, depending on schedules of staff and volunteers that assist with the adoption process, we ask for patience and grace in this process



Pit / Belgian Malinois Mix

Otis is a one year old pittie mix who is a little bit of a work in progress with a few quirks that would need a dedicated human to help him work through. He tends to grab at his leash when out walking and sometimes try to nip at your calves/ankles. He doesn't bite, but it can appear that way since he has a lot of energy! I just need someone who can learn to understand me and give me time to learn. I'm probably not a good fit with younger kids, as I can be a little much sometimes, but I know my human is out there somewhere!


MILEY (Pending adoption)

Black Mouth Cur Mix

Miley is a wonderful brindle black mouth cur mix who would perfectly fit in a home with people who have an active lifestyle.  She loves to run with the volunteers at the shelter and enjoys playing with toys (especially the plush ones that she can shred!). She is a little wary of strangers, especially men. She is a happy and sweet girl looking for her forever home.

Perry is the sweetest little boy. He's approx 8-10 years old, still very active and loving. Enjoys going on his walks, even though he has luxated patellas. He may be a little slow to get up, but wants to have fun, so he powers through. He's neutered and up to date on his vaccines.

Pit Mix

Diva is an approximately 8-9 month old pit puppy. She's adorable, fast, fun, and energetic. She's looking for her perfect human to have adventures with.



Pit Mix

Molly is an approximately 2-3 yr old female pit mix, who loves all. She's been good with other dogs similar in size and larger, and is looking for a human to love. She crates well. She needs some confidence in her leash walks, as some noises near the shelter scare her (it's very busy here). Molly is so very loving, and just wants a human to love her back, seriously consider this beautiful girl.

This sweet boy is 9 yrs old. He's had a pretty rough go of it the last couple of years. He's scheduled for a grooming to fix the flaws in his cut, but he's still so cute. This boy is looking for a loving home. Quiet would be best for him to lay his head down and live out his golden years.

He loves being held, does well on walks, and he's so cute. He's neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.
