Pit/Belgian Malinois Mix

Otis is a two-year-old Pitbull/Belgian Malinois mix. He has more energy than he knows what to do with and would do amazing in a variety of dog sports. One of his favorite things to do here at the shelter is run on the slat mill (doggy-powered treadmill). Otis sometimes gets excited and can get a little mouthy, so we recommend only older kids in the home. This sweet boy can't wait to find his forever human who is willing to love him as much as he deserves. Otis is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. 



German Shepard/ Rottweiler mix

Marlowe is a two-year-old German Shepard and Rottweiler mix, but super sweet! He is not a fan of cats and is good with most dogs with a proper introduction! He does great on his walks and calms down after a while and loves belly rubs! He is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, and microchipped!!

HAZEL (In Foster)

Shepard/Husky Mix

HEYYYYYYYYYYY look at me, I'm a little bit of a wild child, as no one gave me much attention as I was bounced around from home to home. But here is the thing, the more you get to know more the more you will see my enthusiastic personality! Let me tell you some things about me, I could go on five hundred walks or play in a backyard all day if you'd let me, if you have a tug-of-war toy I will be your best friend and guess what? I do tire out, I swear! I am updated on vaccinations, microchipped & spayed.

BEAN (Pending Adoption)

Min Pin Mix

Have a treat? If so, I'll be your best little buddy ever. I'm little but have a BIG personality. I do take a little time to get to know you, so don't take offense, I'm just a little shy and have to have time to sniff out the good ones.  I do like other dogs, but not the ones that get all up in my business, slow and steady is how I roll. I'm about 4 yrs old, neutered, up to date on my vaccines and microchipped.

LEMONADE (Pending Adoption)

Wheaten Terrier

Lemonade is an approximately 4 yrs old Wheaten Terrier. She is a puppy mill survivor and because of that has a hard time learning to trust. We think she would do good in a home with another dog to learn that the world isn't all that scary of a place. She is up-to-date on vaccines, spayed, and microchipped.

****Bonded pair

Miniature Pincher/Dachshund Mix

Double the fun with us. We are a package deal, and boy are we worth it! We are just too sweet girls looking for a family to love us. Pheonix (Min Pin, age 2 yrs old) is very shy and just unsure of herself, I (Katie Anne, 4 yrs old) on the other hand, haven't met a stranger and am the extrovert of this pair. We love to cuddle and take naps with each other and would love for you to join us! We are spayed, up to date on our vaccines, and microchipped.

Stacey (2)_edited.jpg


Terrier Mix

I am the newbie in town! I am predicted to be between 6 to 9 months of age due to my pearly whites. Now listen, I could play in the grass with you & not even need a toy! How fun & amazing is THAT!? Let's just run in circles and my ears will point you right where any sound, people or smells are. I am currently vaccinated (still need my booster though), spayed & microchipped. 



German Shepherd 

Avis is a gorgeous 2-year-old German Shepherd, looking for an active human, who loves to go on adventures, like hiking, running, and then cuddling on the couch. She loves being around people (Big), unforturtunatly little humans are too scary for her, and can be dog selective. Due to this, we would recommend she be an only dog. Avis is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, and microchipped. 


OSCAR (Pending Adoption)


9 yo Oscar found his way back to our Shelter after being hit by a car. We got him all fixed up and feeling better. He's a sweet, silly boy who has so much joy to give to his forever human that will protect him. He may be a tripod, but that won't slow him down any, as he's all heart and still a bundle of joy. He's neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.

LOLA & LEIA (Bonded pair) (Pending Adoption)


WE are a package deal, and double the love and cuddles. We were dumped at the front door in a plastic tote on a very cold morning, but that hasn't stopped us from being trusting and loving. I think we're middle-aged, somewhere around 9-10 yrs old, but still spry and adventurous. I'm severely sight impaired, if not blind (Lola), but my bestest friend Leia helps me out and makes sure I don't get too lost. Sometimes she plays a joke on me and makes me wander around looking for her, but I know she still loves me. We are spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. We also had blood work done and for our age, everything was in the "normal range", so we're still healthy!!!

Shih Tzu

Marie is a year and a half old Shih Tzu! She is the sweetest girl around and has a very calm personality. She loves going on her walk and getting all of the cuddles. Unfortunately, when we took her in, she was covered in fur mats so we had to shave her down, but she is rocking her new coat as it is coming back in. She is up to date on all vaccines, microchipped, and spayed!


DONNIE (Pending Adoption)

Shih Tzu

Donnie is a year-and-a-half-old shih tzu! He is very charming and loves to cuddle when you get down on his level. His favorite thing is jumping up like he is in the circus! But after a while, he calms down and loves his walks. His sister in Marie! He is up to date on all vaccines, microchipped, and neutered

The people at the shelter know LOVE very well, but they don't understand dog speak, so they don't know much about my background, wish they could understand what's in my eyes, it tells my story. But, either way, I am a sweet girl, I love my snuggle time, and human time. I haven't decided if I like other dog time, guess we'll have to see, but for now, I don't want another dog in my space. You see, I was dumped, and no one came to find me. I have a leg with an ouchie, but they're gonna fix me up good as new. I'll see the vet soon to get everything looked at, and be ready for a REAL home very soon.

Akira is a sweet husky, who is living up to the husky shenanigans. She loves to sing songs to the staff as they work and never fails to remind us she is here. But, even with her singing, she knows when to calm down and take a nap. We were told she was dumped when we took her in and she seems shy at first, but once she warms up to you she will be your best friend. We are estimating her to be around 3 years old and is up to date on all vaccines, microchipped, and spayed!!
