My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Rico 6655
Rico is a very handsome canine who enjoys looking at you with eyes that are invitingly whimsical and playfully alert. He has a quiet, calm nature and interacts wonderfully with other doggies, especially Mikey, Patriot and Punkin who all share the same exercise yard. Rico enjoys going for long walks and shows his respect for his human as he gently accepts well-deserved treats.

It isn’t often that you find a dog who will show off his skills in the backyard version of Bocce Ball. The game is recommended for ages three and up…. but being a canine, 1-year-old Rico will qualify in doggy years. He is hoping to be adopted into a family who will include him in playful activities. Rico promised that he would let others win occasionally. Probably not much to worry about…. he is not very good at Spocking and prefers to use the softer tennis balls in place of the usual rock-hard Bocce ball. At the end of the session, Rico came up to the human and gave a number of gentle touches to his hand, not so subtly asking for another round of canine Bocce Ball. The photographer politely turned down the opportunity for a playoff, knowing full well that the human was going to come in last place for the second time in one afternoon. Rico invites your challenge and welcomes your friendship.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption fee is $70 which covers all the basic shots and worming medications appropriate for the age of the animal as well as the required spaying or neutering. If the animal is too young to be neutered, a voucher is presented to the adopter to cover the process at a participating vet. Rabies shots are not included. We have an application process in which we ask basic questions to insure that you and the chosen pet are a good match for each other. We do require a vet reference. If you have been arrested and convicted of animal abuse or neglect, you will not be considered for adoption. If you do not own your home, a letter from the landlord giving permission to have a pet is required. Local ordinances regarding maximum numbers of pets shall be observed. All other household pets must be spayed or neutered. All pets are adopted "as is." Should the pet not work out after you take it home, we ask that you return the animal to us for re-homing. We want each animal to find a loving forever home and reserve the right to refuse any application should the individual needs of the chosen animal not be in that dog's best interest. Contact our office for inquiries and applications.

Our facility at 1st and Nursery Rd. was built in 1980 and continuously houses a total of around 85 dogs and 20 cats. Most of our cats and dogs are strays that have been dumped or abandoned.
