Damsel's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Damsel's Story...
Damsel is actually a wolf hybrid, which was not a choice on the Adopt-a-Pet Breed List. She is a beauty with a sweet disposition. She is used to running loose, and is reportedly detrimental to the health of the neighborhood cats, which is why she ended up in the shelter. She is used to other dogs, but is intimidated by the kennel setting. She should be a fabulous companion for someone with a secure yard.

She is a big beautiful adult female, all white except for some black on her tail. We think she's 5-6 years old. Damsel and her mate where allowed to roam freely & breed indiscriminately for years. Both ended up at the pound more than once, and the last time, the owner redeemed the male, but relinquished the female to the county, claiming she was a cat killer. According to her former owner, she's a wolf, but we recently e-mailed her picture to a wolf rescue, and based just on her looks, their opinion was that she was NOT a wolf. She does howl when she is in distress, but we also have a Husky/Lab who howls. She has quickly become a volunteer favorite, she walks very nicely on a leash, is well mannered, usually waits patiently in her kennel until it's her turn to walk, takes treats nicely, and has shown us just a glimpse of playfulness. She did live with other dogs, and gets along with some of our other dogs, but not all of them.

Del Norte County Animal Control is located in rural Crescent City, CA (a tiny coastal city on the OR/CA border). We have a very small shelter with small indoor 3x6 kennel runs, low foot traffic, odd adoption hours and it rains a lot which means the dogs can’t come outside and play. Please consider making a difference in a dog’s life and adopt from our shelter!

We are open Monday – Friday from 8am to 5pm.
We are closed Saturday and Sunday.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Damsel, a Crescent City Husky/Alaskan Malamute dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Husky/Alaskan Malamute for sale in Crescent City, or seeking a Husky/Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Crescent City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Crescent City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Crescent City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Husky/Alaskan Malamute breeders who help with Husky/Alaskan Malamute rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Crescent City paves the way for another one to be saved.
