Story
Hi! Please meet Lola, our petite 8 month Kelpie/German Shepherd mix! She is up to date on all medical, including spay, and completely healthy. I love cats, dogs (big and small) and kids. While in the shelter, Lola missed out on some of her prime puppy months, so she is making up for them now with lots of zoomies and a big smile on her face. She plays hard and then falls asleep snoring even harder. Even on the shelter, Lola continued to make friends with everyone she met. Her best friends were Melody and Ariel, when they got adopted Lola was left alone on the euthanasia list. Luckily, with a foster offer, we were able to pull Lola and give her a fair chance to find her forever family! Could that be you?

Story
Hi there! Please meet Opal, a 2 year old Kelpie/Staffy mix. She might even have some black panther in her😂. Opal is a sweet girl, who gets along with dogs and kids of all ages and sizes. Right now, she is living with a Great Dane puppy, a teeny 3.5 pound Chihuahua, and an 8 year old boy. All of whom she loves to cuddle and do zoomies for. When Opal is not enjoying the great outdoors, she is quietly entertaining herself while her foster mom works. Opal was picked up by animal control as a stray. While at the shelter, she was constantly overlooked. Her beautiful eyes weren’t enough to get people to look past her color. With that said, she was past by day by day until the shelter said she had no more days left. Before she was euthanized, we were able to pull her and place her in a wonderful foster home where she is blossoming.

Story
Jellybean is a happy, energetic, extremely smart pup looking for a FURever family! Jellybean was rescued in August of 2023 after she was put on the euthanasia list for being at the shelter too long. She’s currently about a year old, spayed, and up to date on shots. Although timid at first, once she warms up to you, she loves getting endless pets. She’ll most likely need a doggy companion because she will play for hours with her current German Shepherd sister. She does well with other dogs and has been with dogs in group settings many times — at the dog park, daycare, and training classes. She is very high energy and will require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation! She does become destructive when left alone, so she will most likely need someone experienced with destructive dogs. We love jellybean, but due to unexpected financial reasons, we unfortunately have to find a new home for her.

Story
Roo, short for Kangaroo, is a 9 year old dog with lots of love and affection to give. He’s potty trained, very obedient, and loyal. My parents have had him since he was a puppy, and still watch over him currently. He has a history of being anxious and aggressive around other dogs, particularly bigger dogs. He gets along with my sister’s small dogs. Last month he bit a two year old toddler, unprompted. I am unable to take him into my home, and so need to find him a new home as my sister just had a baby, and is uncomfortable having her child around Roo. I know he is a good dog, and isn’t aggressive by nature, rather he has issues with anxiety and socialization that my family is unable to handle. I am hoping to find him a good home where he will get the care and dedication he deserves.
