November 19, 2020 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, 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 who 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, or 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.


Still looking for the perfect home... "SAMSON" is a very handsome and slightly more mature large German Shepherd who came to us with a large group of dogs from folks that had too many. He's very calm and sweet, gets along with any human he meets and although a very large dog who didn't seem to have had much experience on a leash, he's come to walk one very easily. This guy is very intelligent! We've come to learn that he does not do well with cats and would be best in a home where he is the only dog.

Luna Belle

"LUNA BELLE" is a gorgeous white and brindle American Bulldog who is almost three years old.  She's very sweet, gentle and only comes to us because her previous owner had to move and couldn't take her.

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.

"DAHLIA" is a super gorgeous black and tan German Shepherd and Collie mix who is almost a year old. She comes to us because her previous owner moved and couldn't take her. This gal is extremely smart, sweet and seems to get along with anyone.

"RAY' is a five month old yellow Lab and Pyrenees mix who comes to us because his owner's health has gotten to the point where Ray was just too much puppy for them to handle the energetic young guy. He does have one eye that he can barely see out of, but the other one is fine. This guy is super friendly, gets along with absolutely anybody he meets and would make any family a wonderful addition.

Talk about adorable... "MILLIE" is a 4 - 5 year old black and tan Wirehaired Terrier mix who is just so sweet! Her owner was unable to keep her, so she's with us looking for a new home. She'd be best suited in a home without a lot of chaos and activity as she's not used to it, nor is she comfortable with it.
