Adopt a Dog.

Here are just some of our available dogs currently waiting for a home.

New dogs come to us daily, and sometimes adoptions can happen quite fast. We encourage you to visit our shelter often.  The shelter is an ever changing environment with new dogs coming to us daily.

Please keep in mind that the shelter is a new environment for these dogs, and they might not show well in their kennel run.  The shelter is filled with unfamiliar smells and new sounds that are not familiar to them.   The behaviors you may see are most likely not the normal behaviors of a dog in a new home environment.
