Hello. My name is Peanut. I am an adult neutered male American Pit Bull Terrier mix. I am 4 years old and weigh about 68 pounds. I was surrendered to the shelter because my owner was not allowed to have a dog where we were living. I am a gorgeous big boy with a lovable personality. I love people and I get along well with dogs. I already know some basic commands and I learn quickly. I am looking for an awesome new home where I will get tons of love and attention. I will also need daily exercise to keep me happy and healthy. If you are looking for a lovable big boy to complete your family, come check me out! 

Update 8/31/15: I have spent 113 consecutive days here at the shelter! I have been here longer than any other dog right now and I really don’t know why. Sure I have some issues with my eye that will require medication, but it’s not extremely expensive and I really think I’m worth the hassle. I love children and I love meeting new people. Since coming here months ago, I have gone to numerous adoption events and fundraisers and I just love the attention. I have seen many dogs find there forever homes in the time that I have spent here but I know my turn is coming. Until then I will wait patiently here with the awesome staff and volunteers that love to spoil me!

Hello. My name is Mocha! I am a young spayed female Rottweiler mix. I am about 10 months old and weigh about 66 pounds. I was surrendered to the shelter because my owner could not give me the time and attention that I needed.  I am a fun and active pup with a sweet disposition. I tend to be a little shy at first but once I am comfortable, I am a love bug. Sadly I received no training in my previous home. I had never even walked on a leash until I came here. Thankfully I am a super smart girl and I learn fast. I am now able to walk on a leash but am still working on my manners. I get along great with most dogs and love to play. I love people but tend to be a bit rambunctious for small kids. I would make a great walking or jogging partner. Come on down and check me out!

Hello. My name is Gus. I am an adult neutered male Australian Shepherd mix. I am about 2 years old and in need of a dedicated new home. You see, I am a fun and active dog that needs a job to do. I ended up here after being picked up as a stray (for the fourth time). My family finally decided they were not able to provide me with the proper exercise, training and attention I desperately needed to keep me happy, healthy and safe. As a result, I am looking for an awesome new home where I will get tons of exercise and mental stimulation. I am a really smart boy so if I am not given plenty of things to keep me busy and tire I will create my own games (like escaping the yard). If you have experience with herding breeds like me and have the time and energy to devote to me, come on check me out! Also, I get along great with kids, cats and dogs! What more could you ask for!?

Hi! I’m Oakley! For any of you that follow the shelter website or facebook page, you are probably already familiar with me but I’ll fill in any that is new! I am a young neutered male American Pit Bull Terrier mix. I am only about 10 months old and weigh almost 40 pounds. I was brought to the shelter at the end of July by a family that found me. I was in terrible shape and couldn’t use my rear legs at all. I was transported to one of the shelter veterinarians that afternoon for an evaluation. Unfortunately no one knows exactly what happened to me but my spine was injured, most likely due to blunt force trauma. The vet believes I was hit on my back with something like a shovel, causing me to lose feeling and control of my legs. Thankfully I was put on a course of steroids and began rehab. Within a few days I was able to stand with assistance! I have now been here a month and have come so far. I can now go for walks and even play fetch! I love other dogs and I get along great with cats. In spite of all I have been though I love people and kids too! I will never be a marathon runner and will always look a little wobbly on my feet but I am once again a happy and healthy little man! With daily walks and slow consistent exercise I should continue to improve. If you are looking for a wonderful addition to your family, come meet me!

Hello. My name is Ruby. I am an adult spayed female Cocker Spaniel mix. I am approximately 8 years old and weigh about 13 pounds. I was brought to the shelter as a stray in sad shape. I was missing hair on my belly and legs and had horrible ear infections. My medical issues were most likely the result of allergies that were never managed or treated. Because my health was neglected for so long it will probably take me a while before I am happy and healthy again. As a result, I was placed in a foster home where I have begun medication and started a new food to see if it will help my condition. Chances are I will need to be on a restricted diet for the rest of my life thankfully food is easy to manage. If you are looking for a wonderful girl to make a part of your family, stay tuned for updates over the next few weeks!

**Currently in foster: If you are interested in adopting, feel free to fill out an application at the shelter or online.**

Hello. I’m Buster! I am a mature adult neutered male Pug. I am about 8 years old and I weigh a hefty 30 pounds. I lost my home and family of 8 years because they were unable to provide me with the care that I needed. I suffer from several medical issues that are common with my breed, including chronic dry eye, skin and ear infections. I am currently being treated for these issues at the shelter but it will take some time for me to get back 100%. I am looking for an awesome new home that has the time, patience and financial stability to help me get on the path to good health. I would also benefit from a good diet as the extra weight I am carrying is hard on my joints. If you are looking for an awesome little man to complete your family, come meet me! I love cats and dogs and even get along with children!
