Male, Beagle/Purebred

Hi there, I'm Bodean. I'm an older guy with a lot of pep in my step! I love to go for walks, run around outside and sniff around, but I also love to just snuggle up on a blanket or bed and take a snooze. I'm not overly energetic so I'd be a great dog for someone who wants a calmer canine. I get along with other dogs also! Please stop by and meet me.

Female, Plott Hound/Purebred

Clara is a super sweet Plott Hound who will need a patient and loving home. She is shy of humans at first, and will need time to learn how to trust. Clara enjoys going for walks and loves to follow her Hound nose. She loves other dogs and is okay with cats. Please come and check her out!

Male, Shepherd/Mix

Want to go for a walk? I love walks so much! I'm an active boy who can't wait to find my new forever home. I may be middle-aged, but I've still got a lot of energy! I am potty-trained and a really smart boy. I don't care for other dogs though so I'd prefer to be your one and only canine friend. I would do well with older kids (10+), but I would be a bit too much for little children to handle. Please come and visit me.


photo of Cricket photo of Cricket photo of Cricket

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Mix

Cricket is a smaller gal who is full of spunk. She is a little timid at first, having lived her life in a cage, but she warms up quickly and loves to be around people and other dogs. She would most likely do best in a home without little children, as the quick movements and antics of small kids may startle her. She is a sweetheart of a dog who would love to be your new best friend.


photo of Davina

Female, Terrier/Mix

Davina is a happy girl who loves to run and play. She has a lot of energy, as she is only a year old and still technically a pup. She loves everyone and would be a great new best friend. If you want an active girl who loves to go for walks and play indoors and out, Davina could be the girl for you.


photo of Molly

Female, Spaniel, American Cocker/Mix

Hello, I'm Molly. My beloved owner passed away so I'm looking for my new forever home. I may be a senior gal, but I'm still full of spunk and I love life. I really enjoy the outdoors and like going for walks. I've always lived in a crate so I may need some potty training work, but I'm really smart and I promise I'll try to learn quickly! Please consider me.


photo of October photo of October photo of October

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Mix

Hello, my name is October. I'm a 9-year-old girl who is happy and lovable. I enjoy snuggling with my people, playing with chew toys and hanging out with other dogs and kids. I'm potty trained and pretty well-behaved, but I do need a little leash training. I'm just a big ole cuddly teddy bear.


photo of Quigley photo of Quigley

Male, Terrier/Mix

Quigley is a cute older gentleman who would be a great friend for someone who wants a low-key dog. He doesn't require a lot of exercise and only prefers short walks. It's apparent he has some vision and hearing impairment, but this doesn't matter to Quigley. He knows that he still deserves and loving home and hopes that he will find one soon.


photo of Scrappy photo of Scrappy photo of Scrappy

Male, Retriever, Labrador/Hound

Scrappy is a handsome boy who is very energetic and active. He really loves to go for walks and be with his people. He can be a vocal dog, but we think he just likes to hear his own voice! Scrappy would really prefer a home where he can be your only dog (female dog might be okay), because he likes to be in charge. He is potty-trained, crate trained and loves attention from his people. If you love oversized lap dogs, come check out Scrappy!


photo of Star

Female, German Shepherd/Purebred

Star is a gorgeous 2-year-old German Shepherd who will be an amazing new friend to someone who has the time and patience to bring her out of her shell. She is shy at first and doesn't seem to know who to trust, but she is very smart and we think she will learn not only the rules of the house quickly, but also how strong the human-dog bond can be. Please consider spending time with Star, even if just to help socialize her.

Male, Beagle/Basset Hound

Aroooo!! Yep, I'm a Hound! My name is Wilbur and I look like a Beagle, but have the body length and legs of a Basset. I'm super cute, fun and a very happy little guy. I love everyone I meet and would even do well with children. I really love to go for walks and will follow my Hound nose so I need to be secured at all times. I'm a great little dog who would love to be a part of your family.
