Say hello to Bennett! This sweet boy is looking for a family that will give him all the cuddles he deserves. He is a quiet boy who has obviously had some training in his past. He knows sit, lay down, shake and is very well behaved for car rides. He seems to be potty trained and he loves to play. Bennett is a really good dog who is going to make someone very happy. He'd be an amazing best friend.

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Pointer, German Shorthaired

How can you resist this adorable face? My name is Boo and the staff here tells me I'm as cute as they come! I can be a little shy at first, because the shelter is kind of a scary place, but give me a chance to leave my kennel and show you my true self. Once I get to know you, I will show off my cute smile and give endless kisses. I'm very affectionate and will be sure to give you plenty of love. I also love to play fetch outside and I enjoy snuggles and pets just as much. I would absolutely love to get to know you!

Male, Hound/Mix

My name is Duke! I'm a happy boy that loves, loves, loves to go on walks and follow my nose! I also really love to swim! Want to go for a run? Sounds great! Prefer to chill on the couch? That sounds just as fun! I'm also very friendly with everyone I meet and I will do a great job at letting all of your visitors feel welcome. Not to mention (or, maybe I will) I'm very vocal and love to announce myself to the world. Please give me an opportunity to show you how fun I am!!

Male, Dachshund, Standard Smooth Haired

Talk about cute! Fred is an adorable, chubby and happy Dachshund who just wants to be snuggled. He acts shy at first, but give him the opportunity and he will be in your lap and won't want to let you go. He's a really good boy who gets along with most other dogs too! Fred would love to find a new home with people who will love him forever.

Female, Retriever, Labrador/Australian Shepherd

Hey there! My name is Gypsy and I'm a very happy, outgoing and silly pup. I'm about a 11-months-old and really love to play and run around. I have a lot of energy to burn off so an active home would be best for me. I love people so much and love to snuggle and get loving from the humans around me. If you are looking for a dog who will be a great companion and who would love to go for hikes, runs, swimming, etc., please check me out!

**My adoption fee has been paid!

Male, Mixed Breed, Large (over 44 lbs fully grown)/Mix

Hi, I'm Hagrid! I'm a silly, happy boy that loves to give kisses and go for walks. I would be a perfect jogging partner and a great companion for older kids. I would be happiest in a home with no other animals, but I promise I'll make up for that with all the love I can give to my people! Even with all of my energy, there's nothing I love more than to cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie. Please ask to see me, I know you will fall in love!


photo of Haley

Female, Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix

Hi there! My name is Haley. I'm sorry if I appear to be a little bit shy. I really do love people, I just don't quite know who I can trust yet. I'm a very loving girl who will give you about half a second to sit down before crawling up into your lap and giving you some snuggles. I'm not super fond of men, but with some coaxing and love, I will come around and show off my sweet side to just about anyone!


photo of Jamal photo of Jamal photo of Jamal

Male, Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix

Meet Jamal! He's on the hunt for someone who is high-energy and ready to hit the trails. Jamal is an active dog who is easy to please. When he gets excited he makes snorting sounds like a little piggy! Put on your sneakers and come on out to CCHS. Jamal would love to go for a walk or play in the yard with you. He's hoping to win your heart and be your new forever friend.


photo of Jasper

Male, Chihuahua, Short Coat/Mix

When Jasper first came in, he was not a happy guy. He was a bit annoyed with all of us because he was scared of this new place with it's noise and smells. It wasn't long before we noticed something really peculiar about Jasper though...he likes to pretend he is a human! Yup, we walked by Jasper's kennel and there he was, standing up on his hind legs and walking around! This little guy is very talented walking around his entire kennel on two legs like it was completely normal. Maybe he does it to get attention and it works! :) Jasper loves to be held and is the perfect lap dog. He does need some work getting used to collars and leashes because he's obviously not had them on very often. He's a good little guy who would love to find a calm home with or without other dogs.

Female, Briard/Mix

Hi, I'm Katie and I'm a very playful, active and sweet girl. I love going for walks and would be a great running/hiking partner. I would be great in a home with no other dogs or maybe just another male dog. I really love people so much much and would be your very best friend. Please stop by the shelter and consider adopting me.


photo of Shadow

Male, Chihuahua, Short Coat/Mix

Little Shadow is such a shy guy, as you can see from his photo. He is still new to the shelter and doesn't really know what's going on right now. He is really sweet and friendly and would love to find a calm home with someone who will love him forever. He has never really been walked so he has no idea what it's like to have a collar or leash on and can get a bit grumpy when you try to put them on. We are working with him on this and hope to get him use to a harness instead. If you have a warm lap for him to snuggle up on, he would be your best friend forever.
