Harley's Story...

Meet Harley! He is a 4-year-old, 58-pound, stunning Dalmatian in search of a forever home. He was recently surrendered to a county shelter, but we can't understand why because he's an amazing dog! Harley likes other dogs - big and small. He is a very loving dog and enjoys lots of cuddles. He walks nicely on a leash and loves to sniff out the world around him! He greets children nicely and accepts friendly pets anytime!! Harley is great in the car too. He sits like a gentleman, but may try to make a pillow out of your lap if you sit with him. Harley is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly prevention. If you would like to meet Harley fill out an application! He's a great dog and is going to make a lucky family very happy. Adoption fee: $75.

Adoption and Foster Care Application:

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.


Adoption Process:
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harley, a Troy Dalmatian/Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dalmatian/Great Dane for sale in Troy, or seeking a Dalmatian/Great Dane dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Dalmatian/Great Dane breeders who help with Dalmatian/Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
