Most of the dogs that end up in shelters are mixed breeds that can have 2 to 10 different breeds in their DNA. All of them deserve the chance to be loved for their individual personalities, sociability and how they will be with their new owners and other family pets and not judged by a specific breed. The breed listed is only the best guess of the shelter volunteers.

The dogs/puppies that are posted are available, unless it is stated 'adopted'. If one is 'pending' you still may submit an application in case the adoption does not go through.

To apply, please send an email to: or fill out our online application here:
