These are the dogs we have here at the shelter.
You may notice below some dogs it will say "ADOPTION PENDING"This means that dog has one or more applications for his/her adoption. It does not always mean the adoption will go through (denied application, loss of interest, bad fit, ect.) but is there so nobody gets their hopes too high on a dog that might already have found a forever home. Thankyou!
Helpful Hint: Dont forget to check out our "little dogs" page. Anytime we have some smaller breed dogs we will have them on that page. It is located on the right side with the rest of our pages but only opens when you click on "Dogs At The Shelter". Also under our dogs page you will begin to notice the names of each dog. We have started making individual pages for each dog which contains more information and pictures. It is a work in progress so please be patient! Thank you!

My name is Bandit and I'm a sweet gentle giant. I know my basic commands such as sit, shake, stay, heel. I love to go for walks and I like to do the "lean" against you. I would love to be a part of your family.
My name is Bubba and I'm a handsome boy. I came to the shelter as a stray and owners never came to get me. So, the wonderful people here at the shelter took me in, got me my shots and... they got me groomed!!! Aren't I handsome?? I was so matted when I came in, and boy did it feel good to get a bath and a haircut. Come and take me home with you!!!
Help us provide long lives, full of love, to these animals.
