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!
