My story

Princess Buttercup was found dragging a leash in deplorable conditions back in October of 2021. She was emaciated, dehydrated, weak and was covered in urine stains up to her elbows. Today, she is a healthy 59 lb. bull in a china shop. She has been spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. She is working on training and manners. She has learned sit and drop. She still needs a patient and active home. She has a lot of energy and that can interfere with her concentration on tasks. She would do best in a home without children and other pets.

More about this shelter

We are a municipal based Animal Control facility. We work directly for a Police Department as law enforcement officers. Not only do we enforce state/ local animal laws, but we are responsible for the care and adoption of the animals that are impounded. Although we are a small facility with a small staff, we usually have many animals in need of homes at one time. We strive for the best possible match for both adopters and adoptable pets. We believe that matching the adopters needs with the needs of the animal is a recipe for a long lasting relationship.
