Meet Duke! He is a 15 month old German Shepherd and is a happy, active dog that loves people. He must go to someone that has a fenced yard and no small dogs. Duke is a diamond in the rough.

Remi is a pretty, black and white pit mix, about two years old. Remi is quiet, sweet, friendly with people, but sometimes shy and can be won over with treats and scratches. Unfortunately, she is not good with other dogs. Remi would make a great service or companion dog for a person or household with no other pets.

Adoption fee is WAIVED due to sponsor

Dax is a tall, unique Great Dane-Pit mix two-year-old. He would love to have an active home to enjoy and help him fulfill his potential. Dax has had some training with pulling a cart in a harness and he likes all people. He can be unpredictable with other dogs, however. He’s a handsome, high energy, lovable character!

Adoption Fee: $70

Lost or Surrendered Animals

Impounded animals are held for five days to allow the owner to reclaim their pet. If an adoptable animal is not reclaimed during that time, the animal is put up for adoption to the public.
