Attention Great Dane lovers!  Dream could be the dog you have been waiting for.  She came to us when her owner could no longer care for her.  This large, cuddle bug needs some room to stretch her legs so make sure there is extra room on the couch for her!  Dream has lived with other dogs but has no experience with cats.  She does get very excited to meet new dogs and people and can be hard to control at those times.  Therefore, we are looking for someone willing to commit to the training necessary for Dream to learn the proper way to greet new people and dogs.  She also carries a bit of extra weight so the ability to walk her and to give her a yard to roam and shed those pounds is needed.  Please stop by the shelter during visiting hours to meet Dream or complete the on-line application and an adoption counselor will schedule time for you to be introduced.

Fez a 2024


This happy young man came to the shelter due to landlord restrictions.  Fez is approximately one year old and still has lots of puppy energy.  Like most pitties, he LOVES to cuddle and give hugs.  Fez is happy to meet everyone and he enjoys his walks and time in the play yard with volunteers.  He has lived with older children so we would be willing to adopt to a family with kids that are 5 or older.  Fez seems to like other dogs but we have no idea how he would be with cats.  If you are looking for a warm, wiggly hug at the end of the day, Fez is the one for you.

Duke_Tye side 2024

This beautiful, brindle boy is now available for adoption.  Ty is approximately 2-3 years old and came to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him.  Ty is a friendly fellow who likes meeting new people, but keep him away from other dogs as he is not a fan.  Ty likes playing fetch in the yard just as much as he likes chilling next to you.  He still has puppy behaviors that need training to correct, so please make sure you are serious with the commitment to train with him before applying.  Due to his size, Ty will not be adopted to a family with young children.  We are uncertain how he would do in a home with cats.

Toby  snow 2024

Toby snow b 2024

This handsome young man was surrendered to the shelter when his owner experienced health issues.  At just 2 years old, Toby still acts like a puppy and is very entertaining!  Typical of a Husky, he is vocal and happy to share his every thought with you.  Toby can happily entertain himself but would enjoy a fenced-in yard to stretch his legs and throw his ball around. He seems like he wants to be a solo, so no other dogs, cats or small animals please!  We will also not adopt to a family with children under the age of 13.  Preference will be given to applicants with Husky experience.
