Volunteers will be having “Meet and Greets” at the shelter every Saturday from 9am until noon and on Thursday from 3pm until 6pm. If you would like to check out some nice adoptable shelter animals, this is the perfect time. If you’re not really looking for a pet, but would like to help, this would be a good time to donate any dog or puppy food and cat or kitten food.
Fosters for shelter animals are desperately needed. If you would like to have a pet, but really don’t want to make a lifetime commitment, try fostering. It’s a win, win for you and the animal.
Volunteers are needed to help with cleaning and caring for the animals. Stop in on Saturday and get signed up to help the animals.
Donations for dog, puppy, cat and kitten food are always appreciated for the shelter animals.
The shelter is a “kill” shelter. When at full capacity, animals are killed to make room for the new ones. Adopting from the shelter could save the life of a great pet.
If you have lost your pet be sure to check this page frequently.
Animals that are currently at the shelter:
Bart is a male, 60 lb, long-haired, black, 4- to 5-year-old, maybe Collie/Border Collie mixed with ??? He’s a friendly dog, with no cat or dog issues. Loves to walk and loves to be with people.
Blake is a tri-color, male, 2-year-old Foxhound/mix who weighs about 40 pounds. He walks like a dream, has no cat or dog issues, loves people, could use a little more weight.
Nirvana is a spayed 2 1/2 year old yellow Lab/Weimaraner mix who is just stunning. A tall, long-legged dog, she weighs about 55 pounds, and is a real people lover. She gets along very well with children, walks very well on the leash, and will sit for you on command. She gets along fairly well with the other dogs, and has no issues with ones that are accepting of her, and simply ignores cats.
Brando is a 9- to 10-year-old male beagle who has a bit of arthritis, but loves to walk anyway! A short-legged man who weighs 29 pounds, Brando packs a lot of “friendly” into a small package. He gets along with dogs and cats, and encourages every new person he meets to be his friend.
Alabama is a mostly black, 4-year-old, neutered male, Lab mix who weighs about 45 pounds. This sweet boy is likely newly blind. He is a little tentative in tight spaces, and hasn’t figured out how to find his way around without bumping into things. Once out in the open, he walks well on a leash, and is aided if his handler knows to talk to him and helps him steer clear of obstacles. Loves other dogs and would be a great companion for a compassionate owner. He’ll even offer to shake with the camera.
Betty Boop is a 1 1/2- to 2-year-old, female, tri-color, Jack Russell terrier, who is very likely pregnant. She’s a nice little lady at about 20 pounds. Walks easily and gets along with other dogs, as long as they are respectful.
Louise is a female, tan and white, 2- to 3-year-old, Lab/Pit mix. She has a docked tail and weighs about 50 pounds. An excellent walk, she loves people and wants to please, but would likely chase cats.
Alonzo is a male, 2- to 3-year-old walker coonhound, who is as pleasant and easy-going as they come. He is a very easy walk, and has no problems with any other dogs he has been around. Easily handled and very gentle, this 55-pounder would make a great family pet. He does not do the typical hound baying very often, and is an all-around good dog.
Henry is a 50 lb red-nosed pit bull terrier who has gotten along well with cats and other dogs he’s met.
Razor looks to be a Texas Heeler or Catahoula mix, 2-3 years old and around 50 lbs. He has an arresting dark brown face with speckled brown/white legs. Good with cats and other dogs, he can be a bit territorial when a car drives up while he’s on a walk outside the building. Basically a good dog, but wants attention on his own terms.
Anna is a young, 25 lb, spirited female spaniel with a gorgeous black face. She walks fine on a leash and gets along with other dogs and cats, too. She is transfixed by squeaky dog toys and is eager to find a home.
Rocky is a neutered, male boxer/pit mix, about 4 years old. He is energetic and would be a nice companion for someone who has time to give him exercise. No cat or dog issues, and he is fine with people young and old. He has a beautiful brown/brindle coat with a bright white chest.
Johnny is a year old Male gold and cream boxer/pit mix who weighs about 38 pounds, and who could easily become a real “talker.” He is a great walk and introduces wonderfully to the other dogs. He is easygoing, and wants nothing more than to be with people and be petted..pretty much all the time. A loveable dog!
