Adoption Corner!

Lilac is a great girl who loves people and enjoys flopping on her back to look for belly rubs. She plays with toys and enjoys her time outside. She needs a yard with a high fence, and shouldn't be unsupervised outside, because she will try to go explore. She's about 4 years old and has lots of love to give. She needs a home without cats.
Please share Lilac - she's very sad in the shelter. Let's find her the home she deserves.

Blu is a 7yr old purebred Weimaraner
who is an absolute pleasure to be with. He loves long walks  and belly rubs. He thinks cats are annoying and would love a home with older children or adults. He gets along well with other dogs.
He is struggling in the shelter environment, so it is important we find this handsome guy a home as soon as we can.

Huck is a five-year-old Lab Mix. He is an amazingly loving and loyal companion who always does all he can to please his person. While he may have a serious look about him, he is a goofy and playful guy, always up for an adventure. Sit down on the floor and this over-sized lap dog will plop right down on top of you. House broken and trained in basic obedience, Huck has spent too many days in the shelter. He desperately wants and needs a home and companion to call his very own.
