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!

DOGS HAVE SWEAT GLANDS IN BETWEEN THEIR PAWS.
DOGS HAVE THREE EYELIDS. THE THIRD LID, CALLED A NICTITATING MEMBRANE OR "HAW". IT KEEPS THE EYE LUBRICATED AND PROTECTED.
A DOG MOST LIKELY INTERPRETS A SMILING PERSON AS BARING THEIR TEETH, WHICH IS AN ACT OF AGGRESSION.
A DOG CAN LOCATE THE SOURCE OF A SOUND IN 1/600 OF A SECOND AND CAN HEAR SOUNDS FOUR TIMES FARTHER AWAY THAN A HUMAN CAN.
TOUCH IS THE FIRST SENSE THE DOG DEVELOPS. THE ENTIRE BODY, INCLUDING THE PAWS, IS COVERED WITH TOUCH-SENSITIVE NERVE ENDINGS
IT IS MUCH EASIER FOR DOG TO LEARN SPOKEN COMMANDS IF THEY ARE GIVEN IN CONJUNCTION WITH HAND SIGNALS OR GESTURES.
PETTING DOGS IS PROVEN TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE OF DOG OWNERS.
Rosie is a sweet 9 year old girl who has a lot of energy for her age. She loves to go for walks, play ball, and get belly rubs. She, however, does not like cats. She gets along with male dogs better than female dogs. Rosie also loves to give lots of kisses.
Maximus is a neutered Pit Bull mix that is about 3 years old. He is a very handsome boy who has a lot of energy.

I'm a happy go lucky girl who is all smiles. I love going for walks as much as I love playing. I came to the shelter as a stray, and now after waiting, I'm available for adoption. Will you be my new family?
Hey all! I may not be the quarterback for the best football team EVER, but I promise you I am a team player. I love to run and play.

I'm a good looking boy who is looking for my new forever home. I like to go for walks and learn new things. I still need a little bit of training on my basic commands, but I will learn fast if you just take time with me. I do know how to listen too. Will you be my forever family?
My name is Bonnie and I am a shy and quiet girl. I'm not big on chasing toys or playing tug-o-war. All I want is a nice quiet home so I can retire in. I do like to cuddle and give kisses. I like to be petted and go for short walks. I would prefer a home with no dogs, no cats, and no kids. I do prefer women to men, but I'm ok with some men. I would love to be a part of your family.
Hi everyone!!! What you doing??? I'm Doodles. Doodle bug if you will. Aren't I the most sweet, adorable, cutest little peanut you ever did see? I am? Oh you are so awesome!!!

I also learned that going potty OUTSIDE is way better than inside. Who knew?? Will you be my new forever family? Please????

(see our story below under our pictures)
My name is Bear and I'm a shy little boy who would love to be in a home with a forever family. I came to the shelter with my sister Nova as surrenders because my humans could no longer physically care for us. It's not that they didn't love us, because they did. They just wanted us to have a better life with family that could keep up with us. Would you be my new family?

Timber is a beautiful Alaskan Husky mix. She is about 6 years old and spayed. She is very shy at first but she will warm up to you once she gets to know you. She would need a lot of patience and understanding of her breed. Timber would be best as the only dog in your home.

Hello folks. My name is Rogers. I'm a handsome boy who can swoon the ladies. To follow up on what my counterpart "Farve" stated, I too, do not play for the Green Bay Packers. I, however, am a good looking boy who enjoys long walks at sunset and candlelit dinners. Will you go the distance with me? Stop by and let's see if can get some gain some yards.
My name is Brutus and I'm just a goofy boy who is looking for my forever home. I love to play and have lots of fun. I'm a young boy so I do need some help on learning my commands, but I promise to be a good boy and listen very well to you. I'm mean look at me, I'm cute, right?
Help us provide long lives, full of love, to these animals.
