Adoption Basic Information
We are an all volunteer organization and the majority of dogs are kept in foster home and we ask that if you are interested meeting and/or adopting in any of our dogs, PLEASE fill out an application. Once an application is received, a volunteer will be in touch via email and/or phone to speak with you more.
Our adoption process consists of an application, reference checks, interview, and home visit prior to placing any of our dogs into a home. We do our very best to be efficient and quickly process application, but we strive to ensure the best match for each rescue dog and also for you family.
We realize that people are looking for a predominant breed or breed mixture, but visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
Each and every pet is vet checked, started on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and started on their flea/tick/heartworm preventatives. Upon approval of your application, an adoption donation fee as noted is due to help us cover these expenses and to ensure that we are able to help the next one in need.
Thelma - Perfect Partner in Crime
I’m Thelma, a 2-3 year old female Shepherd/Heeler type mix. I weigh approximately 50 or so pounds and stand just above your knees tall.
I do well with most dogs my size or larger. I tend to be bossy and overly energetic when playing.
I am not a fan of cats and need a home without.
I do wonderful with people of all ages! I do prefer a less chaotic household than one that is super busy with LOTS of kids (one/two are fine!)
I am kennel trained, but prefer not to be. I am house trained but need a regular schedule. I am extremely high energy and need long runs every day or a couple times a day!
I LOVE playing with toys, running like crazy around the dog park, and being with my people as much as possible! I know basic commands and enjoy the mental challenge of learning new ones. I pull on the leash when we start off, but settle down after we get going and I have a chance to work off some extra energy! I’m extremely loyal and tend to bond with one or two people in the family.
An anonymous donor has covered part of Thelma's adoption fee! Her adoption donation fee is now $150.00
Aspen - Mischievous & Energetic
Aspen is approximately 7-9 months old and beleived to be a Spitz type (Samoyed /Husky / Eskimo) mixture. She currently weighs 40-45 pounds and is predicted to be approximately 50-70 pounds full grown.
Aspen loves other dogs and just wants to play! She does enjoy rough housing and wrestling and sometimes can play too much for certain dogs. She has a very in your face play style, not unusual for this type of breed mixture. She can quickly overwhelm a dog who is smaller/older and would do best with a dog who likes to play and wrestle. Aspen regularly visits the dog park a few times a week and does well with most dogs there. Aspen has also been around cats before and did pretty well with them and stopped trying to play with them after the cats swiped her.
Aspen loves people and receiving attention. She is still young and working on her manners, but overall does great with an occasional reminder not to jump and to be gentle. Continued work on basic manners, she will do well with children of all ages (please remember that as she's learning she may accidentally knock younger ones over).
Aspen is working on kennel and house training and off to a great start! She is used to going out every 4-6 hours and will hold it overnight in the kennel. She will need her forever family to help her adjust and continue learning in her new home. She will cry in the kennel initially, but does quit as she begins to know the schedule better.
Aspen is a medium to high energy gal and needs daily exercise. A good LONG walk or a run is perfect! She also attends the dog park during the week to burn some extra energy off. Aspen is started on basic commands and manners - she is treat motivated. She is also working on walking nice on the leash.
Aspen's forever family should be prepared for typical puppy behaviors and be committed to training and working with Aspen as she learns how to be a well behaved dog. An obedience class would be an excellent start to help her bond and get the basics down!
Note: Aspen's adoption fee is $350.
Odin - Loyal & Dependable Friend
Meet Odin! He's approximately 4 years old and looking for a home who understands his breed. He weighs in at about 85 pounds and is very athletic.
Odin does well with most other dogs, but requires slower introductions. He does prefer female companionship over other males. I have been around cats and paid no mind to them.
Odin is cautious when meeting new people and tends to need slower introductions, especially to men. He does awesome with children of all ages and seems to warm up to them much faster than adults.
I am kennel trained and believed to be house trained. I initially did have a couple accidents in my foster home while I was learning their schedule, but have been good since! I am a smart boy and like to learn new things - I already know how to come, sit, down (most of the times) and kennel up. I'm working on walk (no pulling on the leash) and shake. I'm a high energy level and need daily exercise of a LONG walk or a run.
I love treats and pleasing my person(s), however, I'm stubborn and will try to get away with doing things my way. I need an owner who is firm and patient, but will not let me get away with things. Once I've chosen my person(s), I'm very loyal.
Odin's adoption donation fee is $250.00
Reggie - Dignified & Happy Gentleman
Piglet - Our Silly Piggy
My name is Piglet and I'm approximately 1-2 years old and believed to be a bully breed mixture. I'm shorter in stature, but I weigh approximately 6-70 pounds.
I love people and enjoy making new friends out on walks! I have been around children some and do pretty well, but sometimes I forget that I’m bigger than what I am and can be a little clumsy, but with continued training I would do awesome with all ages!
I get along with most dogs with proper introductions. I do better with female companions or submissive males. I have been around cats off and on and overall do not seem to concerned about cats and would do okay with them.
I have a low to medium energy level and require a good walk or romp around the yard to be content. I’m a big fan of lounging around and relaxing. I do still have some puppy chewing, so I do best if you provide me strong durable toys and bones to keep me busy.
I am kennel trained and I’m believed to be house trained as I haven’t had any accidents in my foster for awhile now. When I first adjust to a place, I may mark, but with guidance, I stop this quickly as I learn the schedule and rules!
I LOVE attention, especially belly rubs. I also give lots and lots of kisses! I can be a bit clumsy (I’m still outgrowing my klutzy puppy antics) but my silly clown antics are sure to make you laugh!
I have been working hard on basic commands and I have figured out to come when called and how to sit. I’m working on lay down and not jumping when over excited. I do pull on the leash some, but after a little bit I walk very nicely! I’m stubborn and will test my handler to see if I can get away with not doing what I’m being asked to do.
Piglet's adoption donation fee is $250.00
Wiggles - Energetic & Loving Pup!
Hiya friend! My name is Wiggles
and I’m a lab type mix. I weigh about
65-70 pounds and I’m 1-2 years old!
I have lots of puppy energy and love people! I especially love people who will walk me, run with me, and play with me! I try very hard to be gentle with everyone, but sometimes I’m a little too over excited for young children.
I get along with most dogs and love to play. My favorite thing to do at the dog park is play chase. Sometimes, I can be too much puppy and too in the face for some pups, so maybe I should meet yours first? I’ve met some cats and I tend to be too playful with them.
I do have a high energy level, so I need daily run time. I do calm down after I’ve had a chance to burn my energy off and I’m content hanging out and chewing on a good bone. I love toys and balls too! I do still have the puppy chewing habits and will need help to make sure I make good choices.
I’ve been working hard on basic obedience and leash manners – I’m getting better everyday! I know how to come, sit, kennel up, and shake. I’m working on lie down too. I am kennel trained and willing go into my kennel (as long as I have had enough exercise). I am believed to be house trained, but I need a schedule and time to adjust to it.
Wiggles adoption donation fee is $250.00
Shiloh - Handsome Adventurer
Say Hello to Shiloh! This handsome boy didn’t have the best start in life, but he’s now learned what the good life is. He lived his younger days chained in a yard until a kind person took pity on him and took him to a shelter for a chance at a better life. Shiloh was adopted from the shelter as an outside farm dog – he had the run of the farm and stay contained with their wireless fence system. He had kids to play with, lots of treats, and freedom to run. However, his family had to move, and unfortunately could not take Shiloh with. Thus, begins his journey with the rescue. Upon arriving, he was petrified of the inside floor and his foster home worked with him lots to show him that it was okay. He’s learned that being inside is way better than always being outside and that the floor is really not that scary.
Shiloh is kennel trained and is used to kenneling when no one is home and overnights. He is house trained, but needs to be watched at first for marking (greatly reduced since his neuter!) and as he adjusts to a new schedule. He enjoys attention and especially loves ear scratches. He will give kisses and cuddle near you, especially if you are on the couch!
Shiloh is independent, but doesn’t mind the company of the other dogs. He’s easy going and has gotten along with any dog he’s met. He loves to visit the dog park and run – he does play some, but seems to explore and run more than play. He’s also been exposed to cats and doesn’t care less about them – just sniffs and moves on. Shiloh is fantastic with people of all ages – he loves kids and doesn’t jump on them. He’s regularly around children as young as 2 and enjoys when they come visiting.
Shiloh is very smart – he can also be an escape artist if the opportunity presents itself. He will need a family who understands the husky breed and can keep him leashed always or in a securely fenced in area. He loves to go for walks (we think he’d love runs too if you’re a runner) and after his initial start of excited pulling, he settles down and walks very nice on the leash! He has learned how to kennel up, sit, and come (most times – he is a husky after all!). Shiloh is working on lay down and will do so about half the time you ask. He is treat motivated but a good ear scratching works just as well!
Shiloh has been brought up to date on all his vaccinations, neutered, heartworm tested negative, microchipped, and is current on his flea/tick/heartworm preventatives. He weighs between 40-45 pounds and is considered full grown at 4-5 years of age.
Shiloh’s adoption fee is $250.00
