January 14, 2021 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

We are still operating on a Limited Access Policy. Because we care about our community and want to help stop the spread of the virus by protecting our community, staff, guests and volunteers, we are taking steps as a precaution due to the COVID-19 Risk Dial for the area being at "High."

  • Stronger social distancing restrictions will be in place, meaning one person or family unit at a time will be allowed in the facility and we will be going by appointments during our normally regular business hours.
  • An application for adoption is available on our website at  Under the tab dog or cat, please indicate which specific pet you are interested in adopting.
  • Our front door will be locked during our otherwise normal open hours. You may knock and if we do not have an otherwise scheduled appointment, or someone else in the facility, you will be able to come in and view our pets available for adoption.
  • Masks are mandatory.
  • We ask that you do not come into the facility if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive with COVID-19, if you have traveled to a known high risk area within the last 14 days, if you are at high risk, or if you are showing any symptoms of the virus.

We appreciate your continuing support and understanding during these unusual times and wish everyone a happy, enjoyable and safe experience while visiting our facility.


Dogs Available for Adoption

Thank you for choosing to adopt a pet. If you are interested in adopting a puppy or dog listed on this website please contact us or visit our shelter to meet the pets "in person."

There is a nice selection of dogs and puppies for adoption. Stop in the shelter and take a look at them and perhaps take one home with you.

If the pet you are looking for has already found a family, please consider one of the other wonderful pets who needs you.

In a perfect world, every dog would have a home
and every home would have a dog.

Website photos and pets' availability are updated weekly.  "Adopt a Pet" on KICX radio, 96.1 FM, airs each day between 7:30 and 8 am with the latest information on our adoptable pets or give us a call at the Shelter.


He's back and needing that special someone... "THOR" is an extremely gorgeous white German Shepherd mix who originally came to us with a large group of dogs for folks who just couldn't properly care for all of them. He was adopted, and brought back because although he is the most awesome dog they've ever met, in their words, they were uncomfortable with having him with the kids since Thor was not comfortable with kids. He's just never been around them. He was not aggressive, just unsure. He's very protective of the humans he bonds with and extremely friendly and social with them. He loves to hang with them. He does not do well with cats, smaller dogs, and iffy with other larger dogs. He wants to be top dog. He's best as the only one. This guy is smart, loyal and just an amazing dog for the right home.

Meet "SAMSON"... He's an eight year old German Shepherd who is one of our favorites. He talks to us, hugs us, and just loves us as much as we do him. He asks that you please understand that he has so much love to give just the right person(s), but he just can't be in a home with other dogs or especially cats. He also asks that you please overlook his age, he's only eight years old, and please forgive him for his dislikes, it's not his fault. But he truly makes up for it with his wonderfully loving personality and his intelligence.

"BEAR" is a very gorgeous and active two and a half year old Aussie who comes to us because her previous owner is at a point where Bear is just way to active and she needs someone who can spend more time with her, and who has a more active lifestyle. She's absolutely as smart as she is beautiful, friendly as she smart.

We're still in shock that "CORA" wasn't claimed, when she was brought in as a stray. This young adult Heeler and Corgi mix is a just a sweetheart that gets along with anyone she meets! She's definitely got the Heeler in her, so needs to be tasked, and is a very active girl, so will be best for folks wanting a very active dog.
