Look out Santana fans, here comes Carlos! A natural musician, this little guy is all about having fun, making people smile and tap their toes. We're not sure if he's more proficient singing or playing the guitar, either one is sure to make you fall in love!


​Big puppy breath, big puppy belly & big puppy antics! This playful girl is all about the fun & laughter. She's a happy little girl looking for a family to share all this excitement with.


I am puppy that needs the attention of everyone I see. I do have some manners but need a family that will teach me right from wrong. I love playing with other dogs and kids, but because I'm so excited to do so, bigger & older would be better.


​He's a handsome, very smart little min pin mix with lots of attitude. He needs calm people in his life as he is wary of strangers, although we are seeing signs that he's improving on that level. It doesn't take long to earn his affections with a little patience and training treats, you just have to let him come to you. He knows several commands (sit, stay, wait, come). Once in a home, he blossoms and is a very affectionate fellow and very loyal. He is great on car rides and loves to go for walks. This boy would be best in a dog savvy home without children.


Poor little Jasper needed to come back to the shelter due to changes in his humans life. He's a playful little guy, has a whole lot of clown in his itty bitty self and really misses an audience to perform in front of. Could your family be his circus?


Big puppy breath, big puppy belly & big puppy antics! This playful girl is all about the fun & laughter. She's a happy little girl looking for a family to share all this excitement with.


Like her namesake Laverne DeFazio of Happy Days fame, this energetic pup is inquisitive, friendly and just a little bit of a tomboy. Her ideal home would include a family that can dance down the street singing Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated.


Look at those legs! This girl should have gone into modeling. She not only has the body, but the temperment as well. Lexi can be a loving and affectionate girl, but she does have some insecurity issues and would prefer her home to be quiet and without children.


​This adorable Chunky-Monkey needed to come to us after her owner passed away. She's a social girl, but can be a bit of a lap-loafer (hence her heftiness). Mimi's ideal home would include both social movement and cuddletime.


Everyone has that one friend, you know, the one who walks into the house all prim & proper with their nose in the air and as soon as you shut the door to the outside world is all "Let's Party!!". Well, that's Penske, all 7 lbs of him, snooty as can be and 2 minutes later is playing the air guitar & slurping margaritas. Sound like your kind of pup? Well, come on down & meet this handsome fella!


This handsome little guy's life has been turned upside down, but you wouldn't know it from his demeanor. A happy go lucky pup with a prance in his step and twinkle in his eye.


This little spitfire is the Queen of the Kennels and let's all the little boys know it. She's great at getting all the other little dogs to do her bidding without fuss or muss, they all just seem to admire & respect her royalty. Reina's looking for a family that can provide the perfect throne to go with her crown!


Don't let the wrinkled brow on this young lady fool you - the only thing Riley's concerned about is finding a new family. A mellow, kinda shy girl, this is one dog who's going to fit in almost any family. How about giving her a try?


Sammy is just a smooch away from being your perfect companion. He was about a year old in 2006 when he came to live with us. Although, he's a big boy, his energy keeps his weight down to about 50 lbs. He's a fence patroler, a great watch dog, and a fabulous cuddler.


​Look out gentlemen, there's a new Ladies Man in the house. Yep, that would be Scooter, giving the old wink, flirting up a storm and kissing all those pretty necks. This little guy has all the girls wanting to hug & hold him and he's eating up every single bit of it! Someone, please stop this nonsense, take him home before he ends up becoming a cad and playboy!


​Scout is looking for a quiet home, maybe with a single human, perhaps a couple with a calm lifestyle. He gets along well with dogs and cats. He'd probably do best with an experienced owner, one who could teach him that the world is not as scary as he thinks and that he's allowed to just chill.


Lively young lady looking for a family to run & play with. Still has a lot of puppy antics in her, her ideal family would include sturdy kids (she's ALL about the running & playing!), a yard to enjoy or plenty of time at the dog park. Maybe a running partner who'd also like the beach. But then again, Serena would really love one of her new family member to have a soft lap to lay her head on while watching NetFlix.


This energetic guy would love to be the Ray-Of-Sunshine in your family's life. He loves the romping and rolling with other dogs and the hiking and camping with humans.


​A conversation with Skipper goes something like this: "Pick me, Pick me, Pick me", "I'm the cute one!", "Wanna play? Do ya? Please?!?!". Yep, this guy is going to demand some attention from you, and then settle in for some ear rubs, belly scratching and soft kisses. A delightful little boy!


​Like her Happy Days namesake, this girl is waiting for her Dreams to Come True. Those dreams include a soft bed, a few treats and a couple of humans to walk down the street and go to the park with.

Tina Turner

Tina Turner hasn't been able to sing a happy tune for a long time. This shy, sweet girl is a tad anxious, a little nervous and really scared of thunder. She has made huge progress with several of our staff & volunteers alike and now enjoys her walks, play time and most importantly, cuddle time!! She would do best in a quiet house with stable routines and laps that she can snuggle down into.


Stripes is a sweet and loving puppy.  He loves to set beside you and is a wonderful cuddle bug.  He takes on the energy level of the environment and is best in a calm atmosphere.  He is house broken,  kennel trained, never meets a stranger, and gets along with both cats and dogs.  Stripes would be happy in a home with adults and/or older children.

Stripes is currently in foster care where he is learning new things.  If you would like to meet him, please contact the shelter.  


What? You want me to make you smile? Well, please, just show me what you want! This high energy girl will do must anything for a treat or a praise, she already knows a couple of the basics and can't wait to learn more. Trinity gets along with most other dogs, so having a 4 legged playmate to show her the ropes is a definite yes!


Bertha is a bundle of hugs waiting for your arms, when she see's someone coming out to walk her, she squeaks - it's really cute! She was about a year old when she came to us in 2008. This 60 lb sweetie is very attached to Billy, it would be wonderful if the two could be adopted together.


Billy, such a love bug. All he wants is a lap to hang out on. He's a bit of a special needs pup, but his seizures have been kept under control with medication. No reason he can't be the love of your life. He came to us 2006. Billy is good with other dogs - especially his bonded pen mate Bertha (it would be great to see the two together forever), he has no interest in kitties and would probably be good with kids over 8 years old.
