09/22/17 My name is Levi and I hope my Adoption Day will be celebrated with you! I’m a 4-year-old Shepherd/Lab mix boy. At 45 pounds, I’m neither too big or too small – I’m just right! I’ve been told I’m one of the best-trained dogs at the shelter – I sit, stay and lay down on command and I walk well on a leash. I play with other dogs and I also entertain myself with toys. A home with a fenced-yard would be great and, if you are a walker or jogger, I would be a swell companion on trails and in the neighborhood.

I’m looking for a dog-savvy owner who knows how to be the leader. Please give me clear boundaries, rules and limits. Reward me for good behavior. If I cannot look to you as my leader, I will try to be the boss. If you assert yourself, however, I will completely trust you and be the most obedient boy. It’s what I truly want, to just be a dog and let you take on the duties of protection and direction. In return, you will have my loyalty, love and absolute respect.

My Adoption Day would be the happiest day of my life. It would mean that I finally belong, after three years of waiting in a shelter. It would mean that I am finally loved, after seeing so many people walk past my kennel door. And it would mean that I can finally just enjoy being a dog, because I will have found a friend I can trust and rely on.

We accept cash or check payments for adoption fees. There will be a $25 fee for returned checks.

When you are ready to adopt a new friend, we’ll ask you to complete our friendly screening process, which ensures safe and successful adoptions!
•Fill out an Adoption Application.
•We’ll have a brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience with pets.
•If applicable, we’ll call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for.
•For renters, we’ll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog that you’re adopting wouldn’t violate any size or breed restrictions.
•Lastly, we’ll visit your home to see the environment where the dog will live and answer your questions. This is a great opportunity for you to get valuable input on how to integrate your new pet into your home.


This process typically takes less than a week and then you are ready to take your pet home!
