Pixel- safe

lab; stray; 4 yrs old; 32lbs; 6/3; HW+; She is an absolute love bug! She is so sweet and friendly, and loves attention and treats. She could use a little more work with walking on a leash, but does pretty well at it. She also did great during her intake. 

Ransom was brought in earlier this morning by AC. very sweet. shep mix; 4/30; stray; male;  HW-; 2 yrs old;  58lbs.  June 6:  Walking on a leash and lovely with other dogs.  Excellent at our off site adoption event on June 5.

Friendly face ready to take you to friendly places!  Howdy, my name is Rizzo and I'm ready to go and do and would love to take you along for my fun, happy ride of life.   I had the best time running around and meeting folks during my photo outing. It was my first time outside of my kennel since my arrival, so as you can imagine I had some built of energy which I happily burned off and then I began my search for a playmate.  My first friend was a cute little youth volunteer.  She giggled and laughed as I gave her face a full cleaning.  Next up,  I met 3 males dogs, all of which I wound running off leash with.  They were all my immediate best friends and we ran, shoulder butted and really had a grand time. I also met a female dog who was a bit meek/shy and I was a little pushy with her...not sure if I was hoping to find someone with the same level of confidence and or if it was a female thing.   My gut tells me I MIGHT prefer the guys but I'm open to trying other females.   I'm a smart, active lady who loves to be a part of the action and would be well suited in a home where I can hang out with slightly more sturdy kids and other playmates.   Affectionate and very appealing with my sleek black coat with white accents,  I'm a smile maker ready to make your day just a little bit better/brighter.   Note: HW-; stray; bully mix; 1 yr old; 3/22; 49lbs; Rizzo is a very sweet girl, walks well on a leash, and did great during her intake.   Note: HW-; stray; bully mix; 1 yr old; 3/22; 49lbs; Rizzo is a very sweet girl, walks well on a leash, and did great during her intake. 

Cool Kid on the Block!  You'll not find a more pleasant and appealing fellow than our fluffy friend, Romeo.  Everyone loves this dog and it's easy to see why.  We had him out with a good mix of male and female dogs and he was really awesome with all.  In a gentle way, he may have tried to get "fresh" with a couple of the females, but hey, he's not been fixed yet and can you blame him as we had him around some real cutie pies!!  LOL.   Perhaps, this behavior also ties into his name, Romeo??  Moving on though,  Romeo is loaded with curb appeal and so pleasant to hang out with.  He's social, friendly, happy and ready to make and meet more friends.    His deep golden colored, thick coat and bouncy arched over tail surely make him stand out in any crowd.  This guy is well mannered and would easily fit into most environments.  He's really quite the lovebug and yes, catch! Note: retriever; hw-; stray; hw-; 6/3;55lbs; 4 yrs old.  Romeo is a playful, happy dog. He will walk on a leash.  He knows the command sit, and loves treats. 


hound; 29lbs; 1 yr; hw-; 6/3- stray

Sammy is one good looking dog.  He has no idea just how handsome he is and is a truly down to earth kind of guy.   We could not get enough watching his coiled tail go bounce bounce over his back as he effortlessly ran after and caught balls and rope toys in our play yard.  For all we knew,  Sammy might have been part gazelle with his incredible lengthy stride and agility!   Sammy did an excellent job in meeting both male and female dogs.  He is extremely polite in meeting them and within just minutes he happily trots alongside off leash with his new found friends and even stretches out flat on the ground right by them.  Sammy is a loving, interactive, affectionate guy.  I think if he had his druthers he would opt to roll over for endless sessions of belly rubs.  He could not have been smiling any broader when he was getting this level of attention.   We enjoyed Sammy's huggy, doting personality and kept coming back for extra helpings of him as we made our rounds in testing dogs and snapping pics of them.   Sammy welcomes you to please consider him for your new companion pet.   Note: 53lbs; 2 yrs old; male; lab mix; 2/4; HW-; Sammy was originally adopted from us back in 2019 as a puppy.  Note: He tested very well with male and female dogs today, 2/28.  nice disposition, walked nicely on the leash.

Sansa was surrendered to the shelter after her owners had to move out of state. Sansa is accustomed to being a part of a family. She is an affectionate girl who longs for her own family again. Sansa is eager to please and easy to train; she needs an experienced dog owner who will give her guidelines and structure. Sansa does get along with other dogs but would prefer to be the lead dog in her home.  Note: O/S- moving. HW-; 4.5yrs old;  54lbs; 11/18/2020;  Shep mix. Given name is Nala.


stray; 38lbs; HW+; 3 yrs old; 5/24; lab mix

Serenity - RIP

Serenity was brought in by AC. She has had a hard time before coming to us.  She is infested with fleas, underweight, and terrified of people. She does not walk on a leash, and does not respond to touch. She will not try to bite you, she simply just shuts down.  hw-; lab mix; 4 yrs old; 30lbs (thin); 3/9

Slim Pickens was an emaciated stray when he arrived last December, skin and bones, weighing in at 35 lbs.  He was rushed to the vet to be checked out and then moved to the Bridge Facility to be cared for and help get some weight back on him.  Slim is now a healthy 53 lbs and is looking for his forever home.  Volunteers say he is a super sweet boy, he has tested very well with both male and females, greets every dog as a friend and wants to prance and play.    Slim is a 5-6 year old, heart worm negative Walker Hound mix.  Walks well on a leash and is a laid back boy.   Note: 12/30 -emaciated stray;  35lbs; Pics from April 3.  No further intake info.  super sweet boy; tested very well with males and females; greets every dog as a friend and wants to prance and play


Snoop was surrendered to us earlier today by his previous owners. They stated that they had too many animals. Snoop is sweet, but a little nervous and needs some time to warm up to you.  terrier mix; 38lbs; HW+; 2yrs old; 6/3

Splash was brought in yesterday by his previous owner.  Splash is a very sweet boy and walks well on a leash.  Given name is Cash; blue tick hound; 85lbs; HW+; 5-6 lbs; 4/8;  Reportedly good with other dogs, kids and cats.

More about me April 13: Splash is the perfect name for me as I make a grand entrance wherever I go!  I'm a more full figure fellow (folks say perhaps I have a few pounds to lose!) who loves to go and do and working a crowd of people and or other dogs is a skill set at which I really excel.  There is no shyness in me, only steady tail wags and endless smiles.   I had the best time exploring around my play space but my exercise time was surely enhanced when I had a partner in crime either human and or doggy to keep me company.  I tested well with both male and females dogs.  I am a strikingly good looking guy with my multicolored coat and big floppy ears.   At best I am a moderate energy guy who prefers to be wherever the activity might be.    Hanging out with kids makes me happy so if you have some in stock, we could be best friends.   I'm a pleasant, appealing fellow who is rather accepting and unflappable and perfectly suited for a family that is in need of  a happy hound!  Please ask for me, Splash today!

Stanley was brought in on Saturday by AC. He is a very sweet older gentleman. He is limping on his back left leg, has a cracked upper right canine, and has demodex.  He also has happy tail, so watch where he's wagging his tail when you say hello to him!  He walks very well on a leash, and did well during his intake also. Please ignore the blood on his back hips, that is a result of his happy tail.   Hw-; stray; 7 yrs old; 2/20 48lbs.  Med Update:  Rear femur leg shattered. 2/26.  When Stanley was well enough,  he went in for amputation surgery however Stanley had a lot of bone regrowth and seemed better suited in keeping his leg vs having it removed.  

Update March 24: What a good sport!  No, a GREAT sport.  Stanley is just the best.  This easy going, happy,  good natured, friendly fellow was really awesome in meeting dogs and people the other day.  Happily trotting around with a large toy hanging out of his mouth,  he proudly carried it around and even met other dogs while it was still in his mouth.   Stanley arrived as a stray looking pretty thin, bedraggled and sporting a broken femur leg (it's an old break).  Despite his obvious state of neglect and suffering, still from day one he has been SO WONDERFUL!   Stanley's tail goes non-stop, so much so that the tip of it is worn thin of hair from beating it against his kennel wall.   Aged at 7, Stanley has such an acceptable, agreeable feel about him.  This guy wants to run and play, interact with other dogs and people (equally) and is softly huggy and affectionate.   Folks of all ages would really enjoy the sunshine that Stanley carries with him day in day out.   If having a loving, super sweet, attentive friend who is welcoming of other dogs in his world sounds like your kind of new friend, please ask for Stanley today. 


Stunna was brought in with Bella, and is Bella's son.  Stunna was surrendered over to us on Monday. His previous owner explained to us that his job requires him to travel for work, and he is not home with them anymore. He wants them to have a better life, and a family that can spend time with them.  Stunna is a little shy when you first meet him, so give him some time to warm up to you. He will walk on a leash, and after he trusts you, will take treats from you also. 6/7; lab; male; 54lbs; 1 yr old; HW-

Sylas - Recent Mom

Sylas is the mother to the GX5 puppies. The neighbors started taking care of her after her owners passed away, but can not take care of her and her puppies anymore.  Sylas is nervous, but sweet. She needs some work with walking on a leash. HW-; 4 yrs old; shep mix; 5/27; 40lbs

More about me June 7: Oh my goodness, these eyes are killing me!  Meet Miss Sylas.  This pretty lady with the big ol' puppy eyes and frowny face really wants to just slink away, get super tiny and go unnoticed.  Poor girl!  Despite her best efforts,  she still slipped on her brave boots and joined us for a photo outing in our front field.  Sylas is shy and timid however she did a lovely job walking to and from her kennel for picture time!  Good girl!  Sylas is an appealing little lady in person with her short little legs, slightly elongated body and nose and yes, those big brown eyes.  She is soft and quiet and desires patience, calm and quiet to be at her best.   For now,  Sylas is feeling uncertain around other dogs as well, so her most comforting environment is with humans understanding her need to settle in and those who will give her space and time.  Sylas is not snippy just pretty overwhelmed.  Did I mention how super cute she is???   Think about helping this down and out girl, won't you please?

Meet Mr. Wonderful, aka Tabor! This awesome guy is a favorite of many people and it's no wonder why.  He's such a good boy and described as being a total love. He walks nicely on the leash and is handsome as he is charming. Tabor has met both male and female dogs and been friendly with one and all. He also enjoys getting love and affection from people and is happy to be petted and told what a good boy he is. Tabor found himself at the shelter when his previous owner surrendered him because of not having enough time to care for him. Tabor hasn't allowed that change of circumstances to dim his happy spirit though, and he stays hopeful that there is a new home out there for him with plenty of time. He only asks for a chance to show you what a nice boy he is. If you have a friendly resident dog who'd enjoy having a buddy, check out our guy Tabor!  Note: male, 53lbs, 5 years old, Bully blend, HW+ .  Returned April 20, 2021 due to relapsing anus which we are treating.

More about me Sept 16, 2019: Mr Congeniality! Volunteers and staff alike LOVE spending time with me as everyone finds me so pleasing and agreeable and yes, simply awesome. I've met several doggies during my time here and I'm always welcoming to all. Never pushy or in their face, I'm a polite fellow who is more gingerly in my approach to life and making new friends. Although physically more muscular than many dogs you might meet, still I am pretty easy to manage and not one to throw around my weight or muscle! Graced with a big ol' blocky head, it's filled with visions of laps to snuggle up in, kids to tend to and perhaps a doggy friend to share my life with. With so many "endorsements" on how wonderful I am from the nice folks at the shelter, surely there must be something to all the fuss and the fuss is all about me. Stop on by and let me show you why I am the perfect one to hang close by your side. My name is Tabor and I'll hope to hear from you soon.

Foster update May 10: "Tabor has been doing wonderfully in foster. He has met all of the cats and dogs and everyone gets along. He is the epitome of a sweet boy and gentle being. I can’t look at his face too long because then I just melt and no housework gets done."

Thora Senior

Thora was brought to us by a worker at the bread company up the hill. He told us that someone dropped her off there around 2:30 in the morning. When she arrived, she was infested with fleas, and had extremely goopy eyes. We took her to AAH and have already started her treatment. While she was there, they also discovered that she had an anemic murmur.  Thora is an extremely sweet affectionate older girl. Originally we had her estimated at a younger age, but she is probably closer to around 8 years old. She will walk on a leash, but please take it slow. She is sometimes wobbly when she walks, and will fall over.  6/7; 75lbs; no hw info; rottie mix; 8 yrs old

Let our good friend Tucker, Tucker YOU out....and have a blast all the while!  Tucker is one super fun and friendly, happy, playful fellow.  He is everything you would expect to find in teen lab mix who knows the joy in mixing and mingling and making new friends with humans and other dogs.  Tucker had a blast off leash with a male and female dog.  He ran and played and engaged in some wonderful bowing down and wrestling antics.  Great with our youth volunteer,  Tucker is ready to set up shop in almost any type of home environment.  Do yourself a favor and ask for Tucker today!  Note: retriever; hw-; 37lbs; 5/25; 10 mos; stray

Wyatt- Oh, so handsome in my new tie! VideoWithZoey

July 2017 Pictures- So cool in my shades!

Chasing dragon flies in a field on a warm sunny day, Wyatt wouldn't have it any other way.  Sweet as can be, and a gentleman to his furry roommates.  He's developed a small crush on his roommate Cleopatra.  They romped and rolled in the oasis today, taking advantage of the bright sunshine. Wyatt adores children, and loves going out to adoption events to meet new people. Wyatt gets along well with everyone he meets. Wyatt is a real catch! hw-; male; 5/2014; 2-3 yrs old.  Note:  Shown with
Cleopatra (black dog).

More about me Sept 2017: Sweet Wyatt … I would so love to give him better than what I have for him right now.  He is a great dog, but he is strong and full of energy.  There is no denying he is a pit with his big head and jaw, but to me it only makes him look like he’s smiling all the time.  He is a gorgeous boy and I love him.  In his play he means me no harm, but he often scratches or bruises me just from his sheer strength and eagerness to play.  He has had more than 15 female kennel mates since we’ve had him and never a moment of problem.  He plays hard, but there is no aggression … just the joy of a teenage boy.  He gets overwhelmed with my crowd of dogs and is why I keep him in his kennel.  He does great one on  one.  He gets free time 2 to 3 times a day to run.  He has food allergies and a grain free diet is best for him.  I have had him around children before and he did well.  He doesn’t know his strength, so I had to watch him closely with them but he loved all the attention.   He does great and minds me well on the leash.  I know the odds of getting him out with so many wonderful pits at the shelter are slim.
