Information

Please Note: These dogs are brought in as STRAYS. Listed ages and weights are approximations for your information, and can only be verified by a veterinarian! Their medical history, along with how they do with other animals and kids, is UNKNOWN. We recommend to bring in any children and animals the dogs will be around to make sure it is a good fit. Any information given by staff or volunteers is purely what we've witnessed while the dog was in our care. We cannot determine how they will be in a home environment. We also recommend all dogs be seen by your veterinarian after adoption and receive booster vaccines, as again we do not know their medical history.

*Dogs whose availability says TO BE DETERMINED, are dogs that need more time to decompress, have behavioral concerns, and/or other concerns that need to be addressed before, if at all, becoming available to the public.
