My story

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jooolllleeeenne...

Now that we have that song stuck in your head, meet Jolene! She won't steal your man, but she will steal you heart! 

Jolene is about 2 years old and full of bouncy energy! Jolene is a believed to be a hound/heeler mix! She loves to sniff around in the yard, so she needs a good fenced yard where she can safely burn energy! Once she got settled, she would thrive with training as she loves pleasing people. Her forever home must be ready to give her lots of exercise to avoid problems later! She seems to do well with dogs she was tested with, and we are unsure about cats at this time (we will test.) 

If you would like to add Jolene to your family., fill out an application at


The shelter software system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at the dog's predominant breed or breed mix. We strongly encourage you to select your new pet by looking at each dog's individual personality and pet qualities rather than relying on a breed label that is only our best guess. 


Our adoption fees vary from $150 and up.  All of our dogs are up to date on vaccines, heart worm preventives, and flea/tick medication, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Portions of your adoption fee also help care for the sick and injured animals that we take in.  Thank you for supporting us and considering a rescue dog!
