Hello everyone,

My name is Missy and I've definitely had quite the adventure this fall season. I was found wandering around the streets by a kind Uber driver and then, taken in by a very nice lady. She and her friend made sure that I received all of the vetting that I need, including helping to repair a cut on my lip. You can just barely see the scar that is left from my adventure.

According to everyone who meets me, I am a very sweet girl. I'm fairly young at 1.5 yrs old and I enjoy being active. Walks, jogs, doggy playdates (I get along splendidly with my two foster K9 siblings), and other activities to stimulate my brain and stretch my muscles. I bet you I'd be great a nose-work classes, if I get the chance. Or I'll probably excel at obedience classes, because I'm quite interested whenever there are treats involved. If you're interested in a fun, eager companion...look no further. I'm available and would love to be that companion to you.

I am a svelte 55 lbs. I am very affectionate. Kisses and being your shadow are two things I excel at doing. I am hw negative, spayed, microchipped, and have had all of my vaccinations. I'm all ready to go. If you'd like to meet me, please contact and ask for Missy.

Our Adoption Process...


We work hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:

1. Fill out and return our adoption application form. 

2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or 
previous animals. 

3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in 

4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family 
member. We may suggest you bring your other pets to this meeting. 

5. If the initial meeting goes well and both parties agree to move forward with the 
adoption, we will make an appt and bring the pet to your home to meet all family 
members - human and furry 

6. If, at the home visit, both parties agree that the home is good match for the adoptable 
pet, we will move forward with the adoption. (Please note, some dogs may require several “visits” to the home in order to feel comfortable and transition smoothly into their new environment.) 

7. We ask the new family to have a crate, food, toys, treats, etc. ready before the home visit. 

8. At the home visit we will review the Home Visit Checklist and Adoption Checklist, review and sign the adoption contract, collect the adoption fee ($200) and take the Happy Tail photo. 

9. That same volunteer will check in either by phone or email to make sure things are going well and to answer any questions you might have. Please respond in a timely manner (1-2 days) 

10. 7-14 days after the adoption, we will collect the medical records for your adopted pet and send them to you. We will also update the pet’s microchip record with your information.
