Meet Lexus! She arrived at the shelter on April 28, 2016 with her 9 puppies! She is about 3 years old and now current on her vaccines. Most of her puppies have found their forever homes, now it is her turn! She has the sweetest disposition and loves all the attention she gets at the shelter! Her and her puppies arrived at the shelter covered in mange, with fleas and skin infections... all that has been treated and she is looking great for her forever family! Come meet her today!

If you have another dog and are interested in meeting another potential new furry member please bring him or her to the shelter and meet on neutral ground before adopting. No need to shuffle the animals around any more than necessary. Please know that 1 mosquito bite can create heart worms and they can be fatal if not treated. It is VERY important to keep your pets healthy and protected by keeping them on a once a month heart worm and flea/tick prevention. These animals are counting on you as their owner to provide them with lots a love and the proper health care so PLEASE make sure you are aware and prepared before adopting. Owning a pet is an extra expense and responsibility but is so worth every minute and penny you invest in them. They will add lots of joy and unconditional love if given a fair chance.
The shelter is open Mon.-Fri. 10-1, 2-5, Sat. 10-4. Adopt a homeless pet and save a life. If you can not adopt right now come out and volunteer and make a difference in the lives of these animals while they await their FOREVER home.
In order to adopt any of our "bully breeds" there is special paper work that will need to be collected and approved prior to the adoption. We love all of our dogs and want to make sure to place our "bully babies" in homes best suited for them.

Act quickly to adopt Lexus. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
