Animals Currently Available for Adoption
Below is a list of dogs currently available at our shelter. The adoption list is updated daily, and may only be a partial listing of the animals that need a loving home. For more information, please call or visit the Animal Shelter.
All stray dogs at our shelter are scanned for micro-chips, but a dog license is always the sure ticket home. All of the dogs listed are current on DHPP, Bordetella, and dewormed.
