Information about our cats and dogs which are currently available for pet adoptions can be found at the following links. Please visit these sites (petfinder or adopt-a-pet), then contact us to make an appoint to meet our furry friends at the animal shelter.
You may also speed up the process by filling out and submitting either our on-line CAT ADOPTION QUESTIONNAIRE/APPLICATION or our DOG ADOPTION QUESTIONNAIRE/APPLICATION prior to arranging an appointment to meet the animal. Click on the appropriate link above for the type of animal you are interested in. You can complete the questionnaire using your computer or mobile device (phone, tablet, etc). When you finish the questionnaire, BE SURE TO SUBMIT THE QUESTIONNAIRE/APPLICATION by selecting the SUBMIT button at the end of the document. You will receive a confirmation message that the questionnaire has been received. At that point your information is sent immediately to our volunteer in charge of cat or dog adoptions. That person will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
Please check back because our list keeps changing with adoptions and new arrivals.
Petfinder is an online, searchable database of animals who need homes. It is also a directory of nearly 11,000 animal shelters and adoption organizations across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Organizations maintain their own home pages and available-pet databases.
Adopt-a-Pet.com is North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website. We help over 17,000 animal shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies advertise their homeless pets to millions of adopters a month, for free. We're all about getting homeless pets into homes.
Chirrut is a gorgeous, blue and red brindle, 1-2 year old, Staffordshire bull terrier mix, stray girlie that was never claimed by her owners. Their loss!!
She had her foster mom in stitches with her “Little Miss Sunshine” demeanor and she is chock full o’ personality to boot. She loves, loves, loves PEOPLE, followed by TOYS as a close second. She does full body wags if she spies anyone at the other end of the street while out on a walk.
She is a smarty pants!! “CC” (her foster mama’s nickname for this sweetie pie) quickly learned sit and “step” to help you put on her harness for walkies. She pulls some, but she is improving when walked on a no-pull harness. She can be mouthy when excited but was a quick study learning that calm demeanor and sitting is rewarded with petting, meals or walks. She is crate trained and house trained. She knows how to fetch and loves to chase down balls and bring them back for another toss (most of the time).
Chirrut loves to snuggle and receive belly rubs. Couch time with you is a must! She is very comfortable in a home and at some point she clearly was somebody’s precious baby girl. With regular exercise she settles nicely indoors. A fence yard is preferred or a family committed to daily walks. She was introduced to the wading pool, and we found out she has a new favorite activity!!
We think she would do well with children ages 10 yrs old and up, who are comfortable with larger dogs and considerate of animals. At times she can be too strong and bouncy for little ones.
She was appropriate and wanted to play with the male dog that she was introduced to.
Although she would enjoy being your diva princess pupper, we think she would also do well with a compatible dog, and we will help with introductions to your dog(s).
She is not ok with cats or small dogs.
She was named after the blind Jedi warrior monk Chirrut Imwe. She was picked up as a stray and already had a cloudy right eye that appeared to be an older injury. She was seen by a canine eye specialist. Good news!! Although she is blind in that right eye, she is not in pain and doesn’t need treatment. You would never guess she can’t see in that eye, as she gets around without a hitch.
