Female, Hound/Mix

Ready to go?! I'm so excited to go for a walk or run. I am such a happy and energetic girl. I love being outside where my nose can hit the ground and sniff, sniff, sniff away! I'm very friendly, loving and while I may seem so rambunctious all the time, I also just love to snuggle up with my people and take a nice long nap.

Female, Rottweiler/Shepherd

Hey there! My name is Caroline and I'm such a happy and playful girl. I'm only 9 months old so I'm still young and will need some training. But, I'm super smart and I love to please my people so I will learn quickly. I have a lot of energy and would love a home where I can have a lot of playtime. Please come and visit me!


photo of Gem

Female, Shepherd/Mix

Gem is a sweetheart of a dog who would be a great family friend. She loves to go for walks and is energetic, but is also easygoing and loves to just relax at home. Gem is potty-trained and a very well-behaved girl. She would prefer to find a home without other cats or dogs, as she likes to rule the roost. Come check her out!

Female, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Georgie is a very sweet girl who loves to play with toys, go for walks and be around her people. She loves any amount of attention she can get and is a great snuggle buddy. Georgina is energetic and fun, but would also be a great friend for those with kids. She is amazing, fun and so pretty!


photo of Heidi

Female, Shepherd/Mix

Heidi is a sweet senior who is so sad to be living her days in a shelter when she should be in a quiet, calm home where she can be adored and loved. Heidi may not be a spring chicken, but she still has spunk! She loves to go for walks and spend time outside. She would do best in a home with no small children and no other animals. Please consider giving this sweet lady her retirement home.


photo of Kennedy

Female, Siberian Husky/Mix

Kennedy is a gorgeous, sweet and lovable Husky who is looking for a new home of her very own. For a Husky, she is relatively calm and quiet! She does need to be secured when outside though, because she will wander off. Kennedy gets along well with other dogs and does well with children. She would be a wonderful family friend.


photo of Morgan photo of Morgan

Female, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Hey there! My name is Morgan and I'm a very pretty and sweet Pit. I absolutely adore everyone I meet and do pretty well with other male dogs and cats. Since I'm a special needs dog, that makes me more special!! I was hit by a car when I was younger and it had to have a major surgery to repair my pelvic area. Unfortunately, while I am potty-trained, I still drip. But I have cute cloth diapers that I am great with! I'm looking for a great forever home and hope that you'll consider me.


photo of Phoebe photo of Phoebe photo of Phoebe

Female, Chow Chow/Shepherd

If you are looking for a dog who enjoys going for a walk but isn't overly active and a friendly companion to greet you at the end of the day, Phoebe may be the girl for you. She is a beautiful 8-year-old Chow mix who bonds quickly and completely to her human friends. She loves her people so much that she doesn't really want to share them and would like to find a home where she can be your only furry friend. She is a great dog and hopes that you'll consider being her new best friend.


photo of Raja photo of Raja photo of Raja

Female, Hound/Mix

Hey there! My name is Raja. I'm a happy, silly and playful girl. I love to play fetch and hang out with my people. I would be best in a home with no other dogs, especially small dogs! I might get along okay with a larger dog, but we'd have to meet. I am great with kids, but might be a bit too energetic for little ones. I hope you'll come and spend some time with me!


photo of RaRa

Female, Hound/Retriever, Labrador

Hey there! My name is RaRa (aka Sierra). I'm a very happy, playful and fun dog. I love my people so much and when I get into a home, I bond quickly and will definitely be protective of my home and family. I am looking for an active home where I can spend a lot of time with my people. I have lived with cats and kids, but older kids are probably better. I'm good with most other dogs too! I hope you'll stop by and consider adopting me!


photo of Sarge

Male, Retriever, Labrador/Mix

Let's play! Let's run! Let's...I don't know...just something! I'm a young, energetic and fun boy who wants to get out and have some fun. I have lived with a female dog and we got along great and I have also lived with children. While I've done good with small kids, I'm so spirited that I may be too much for them. I hope you'll adopt me!


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 Uno photo of Uno

Male, Retriever, Labrador/Alaskan Husky

I am a very sweet boy. I really love to spend time with my human friends and play. I get a little stressed out in new environments so I will need an adopter who is patient and will give me a few weeks to really adjust to a new home and new people. I'm very friendly and enjoy going for walks but I'm not too hyper or active.
