Dogs that are spayed, neutered, microchipped and vaccinated tend to find new homes sooner. If you are low income, please reach out to us for support on this. 

Sample Write-Up:

Lance is a 3-year-old Lab, American Pit-bull terrier mix. He is current on vaccines, neutered, house trained, crate trained and fun loving!


Lance enjoys tug-a-war, chase, and all outdoor activities. He is great with children, appears respectful and curious of dogs,unknown with cats but with his personality he would most likely adjust well. He currently resides with a senior dog and does well with him.


Lance is believed to be fully deaf, and as such does need special consideration for his safety. He does need a bit more training, and is known to chew if left unattended too long. His current owner is no longer able to properly care for him, and would love to find him a safe, loving environment where he can thrive.

Unfortunately, we don't always have space to be able to help your pet. We would more than happy to courtesy post on social media. Please send a write up and 4-6 photos to
