We have orientations every 2nd Saturday from 10:30am-12:00pm and 4th Monday from 6:00p-7:30p. To be able to volunteer with us, we now ask that people do the orientations so we can give them a quick “dos and don’ts” of the shelter. This program is going to be head up by one of our animal caretakers, Danielle Parker.  People who are interested In volunteering can contact Danielle at or they can also contact Brittany Rambo at

·         Age: 7y Gender: Male
·         Color: Black
·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
·         Size: Large


“Jack would make a wonderful companion for anyone who enjoys the lake life. His playful personality really shines through the moment you turn on the water hose. He is no longer in the puppy stage and has a wonderful laid back disposition. He walks well on a leash and knows simple commands. Jack is housetrained and ready to come home with you!”

“Peanut is a 3 year old female. She has been here since the start of October. She is so very loving and sweet! One thing that makes Peanut unique is her size, she still looks like a baby! Although Peanut may be reluctant at times, she loves to play and socialize. Peanut was found as a stray and is looking for a good home with a family that will love her for the rest of her life!”



Pets of the Week, Oct. 19: Bianca, Luna

 Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

  •         Age: 8y 6m Gender: Female
  •         Color: Black / White
  •         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  •         Size: Medium


“Blanca is a tender little girl. She absolutely delights in belly rubs and will even flop onto her back when you approach her kennel. She walks very well on a leash. She is selective about her treats, but will gobble them up when given the right ones. She is an easy going mature girl that would prefer to be the only pet in the house!”




  •        Breed: Domestic Shorthair / Mix
  •        Age: 2y Gender: Female
  •        Color: Brown / Orange
  •        Spayed/Neutered: No

Week of Oct. 15


Marlon- Breed: Boxer / Mix

  • ·         Age: 3y 1m Gender: Male
  • ·         Color: White
  • ·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • ·         Size: Medium

“Like most of our guests, Marlon can be enthusiastic at the prospect of getting his turn to romp through the play yard. Once he is outside, his leash manners improve and he is very playful. His tail wags continuously when he meets new friends to play with, both human and canine. If a dog buddy isn't so happy to meet him, he simply turns and walks away without incident. His favorite toy is a knotted rope and he enjoys a friendly game of tug, never concerning himself with who wins. Marlon can be fairly picky about his treats but has found hot dogs to be to his liking. He is a small little chap and is sure to leave plenty of room on the couch for others to join him!”




Rascal- Breed: Domestic Shorthair / Mix

  • ·         Age: 5y 4m Gender: Male
  • ·         Color: Blue / Black
  • ·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • ·         Size: Small
  • ·         Declawed: Yes


“Rascal is a great cat! He is declawed so he would make a fantastic indoor pet. He gets a little nervous around small children, but loves to be petted and shown affection. He loves bouncing back and forth between his cat trees. This little fella would make a great addition to any feline loving home!”
