Available Pets - Have a Nice Dog

Available Dogs

Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.

Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.

Dante

Big, beautiful boy who loves to play!

Life got much better for me on a snowy Christmas Eve when a nice lady found me and got me the help I needed to find a loving foster home. With lots of nurturing, today I'm thriving. I'm smart too! I have “sit,' “lay down,' “shake' and even “stay' down cold, and I love to work with my foster dad on my training cues. I'm crate trained and happy when bedtime comes. Give me a treat and I'll settle into my eight hours of snooze time. Then I'm ready to play tug-of-war or squeak my Kong tennis ball or maybe just lay in the sun. Long walks and some time to run make me smile. I would definitely do better in a home with older children, no children under 12 please.

Sky

If you let me come to you first, I'll be your best sidekick!

I am very sweet and affectionate! I am a little skittish with quick movements and I can be very shy, at first, when meeting new people. I love going hiking and fetch is one of my favorite things to play!  I'd love a home with another dog since I feel happy and safe with a dog friend!  I would also like a home with children over 12.

Zoomie aka Boo

A sweet, shy boy who'd love to be your best friend!

I'm a sweet, shy boy who is learning that the world is not such a scary place. I'm making friends with the dogs in my foster home and I'm learning how to play and socialize. I love toys and love to hoard them all! I got my name, Zoomie, because I love to zoom around my house and yard. I'd do best in a home without small children, children over 12 would be best for me. 

Breed: Australian Shepherd /Mix

Cheeze

Adoption Pending!

Spend lots of time with me!

I am a gentle and sweet girl! I am a little nervous at first but learn to trust very quickly. I love attention from humans so I'd want a family that will spend lots of quality time with me. I am a great candidate for a Therapy or Companion dog. I'd do fine with children in my home and other dogs would be okay too.

Adoption Pending!

I'll figure it out!

I am a curious problem solver who needs a job to do.  I love to play with my toys and I am very food motivated...sometimes a little TOO motivated!  I am learning how to be gentle when I take treats.  I would love a family who will work with me and keep me engaged and active.  I would be a great candidate for service dog training!  No kids under 10, please, but other dogs are ok.  I am already a little escape artist, so a secure fence in my yard is a must.

Ziggy

Adoption Pending!

I need ALL the toys!

I am a gentle boy who is very social and loves to play!  I will need a home with LOTS of toys and a job to do.  I will do fine with kiddos, but if there's another dog in the home, it will need to be an adult female who can teach me how to act appropriately with other dogs.  I am curious and very food motivated, and I have a great attention span for learning new things!

Mac

Adoption Pending!

A bit shy but sweet!

I am a bit on the shy side and would need a family who will help me to build my confidence. Certain sounds and movements startle me so I need someone who will be patient with me. Even though I can be a little unsure, I like being petted. I am also a bit of an escape artist, so a secure yard is a must. I would love a family who is willing to work with me and help me to feel safe and secure. I love treats but am still learning to take them gently. No children under 10, please, but other dogs are okay.

Scarlett

FOSTER HOME NEEDED!

Want a BFF? I'm your girl!

I am a young, silly, affectionate girl who has been living in a kennel for far too long.  While I do need some time to warm up to new people, once you are my friend I will be your buddy for life. I am a favorite among staff, students and volunteers alike! I just need that one person who will take the time to get to know me for the lovely girl I am.  I don't like to be alone for long periods of time, I love to stick close by my humans.  I love playing ball and going for hikes, too!

Saki

Adoption Pending!

I like to think that I'm pretty perfect, and I think you'll agree!

I'm super easy going and just love to be doing whatever you are doing!  I'm up for playing outside, sunbathing on the patio, wrestling with my dog friends, or just resting my head on your knee for snuggles. I am still learning that the world and people aren't quite as scary as I initially thought they were. I'd love a home with another dog since I feel happy and safe with a dog friend!

Shane 5

Adoption Pending!

Give me ALL the cuddles!

I am a very clever and curious boy! I learn fast and sometimes even better with praise than with treats. I am gentle but sometimes I can't contain my enthusiasm and I get very excited! I love my humans and want to be around them all the time! I am a little leary of young children so I'd do best in a home without children under 12.

Tina

PAW-sitively Adorable!

I am a smart, active girl who likes to jump, play, run, and WORK!  Give me a job and I will perform it diligently.  I have great focus and  I know lots of tricks ..I would love to learn some more.  I am nervous around new people and I am still learning some manners, but I love to go for long walks, car rides, or to sleep in the lounge chair with my human.

Freckles

If it moves, I will catch it!

Hello! I'm a sweet and shy boy who wants a calm household. I would not do well living in an apartment/condo/townhome, but I will keep your yard free from critters.  I play nicely with other dogs, and don't let my age fool you...I still have plenty of pep in my step!  I can't wait to love you!
