072217 Journey1

Journey

When this sweet 5-6 yr old lab  mix came to us heartworm positive,  we knew she had a journey to complete,  so we named her Journey.  She has completed her heartworm treatment and is ready to find her forever home. Journey is looking for a home with older children and a fenced yard. She loves to play fetch with tennis balls and will probably do best in a home as the only pet. Journey would like to remind everyone how important heartworm preventative is and to please make sure your dogs are kept on it, so they don't have to ...

070617 Macie1

Macie

Are you looking for an adventure buddy? If so, Macie is the girl for you. She's up for everything and anything exciting you want to do. Macie is about 3 years old and we believe that she is a Terrier mix (maybe with a Whippet or some other Sighthound). She is incredibly fast and loves to run like the wind. A fenced yard is a must for this active girl. Macie loves to play with our volunteers and she will happily chase the balls that they throw… even though she is not quite sure that she should bring them back ...

Chirp

Chirp

Chirp is an affectionate little Chihuahua fellow who has come a long way in overcoming some early obstacles. He will need annual vet checks for a heart murmur. He has had a dental and is eating a regular diet that should keep his teeth healthy. He has some issues with his knees, which the vet doesn't seem to think will be a problem for a dog of such small stature. He chases after his foster siblings in the yard and has no trouble whatsoever getting around.  He is playful and loving. His two favorite places are running around the yard and in ...

070617 Opossum3

Opossum

Opossum is a Shepherd mix of about 7-8 years old. He originally came to us from another shelter and it was thought by them that he had a knee injury that needed repaired because of the way he walked and moved around. After some testing by our Vet, it was determined he was in need of a lot more medical attention. He does have bad knees but they were already healing from old injuries and his hips are not so great either. Opossum is currently on a nice cocktail of pain management medicines, glucosamine and is currently going to underwater treadmill ...

062217 Twinkie1

Twinkie

Like big mutts? Then look no further! This adorable freckle-faced girl can’t wait to find her own forever home. Twinkie is an approximately 5-year-old Mastiff-Bulldog mix. She has an old knee injury, but that doesn’t slow her down very much. If she wants to go somewhere, you better brace yourself – at well over 100 pounds, Twinkie is quite strong. We require a fenced yard for her and we believe that she would do best without young children. She has done great with all of our female volunteers, but is leery of men - so she will need continued socialization ...

052717 Heidi1

Heidi

This cute little Labrador mix only weighs about 50 pounds and should be almost fully grown at 10 months old. Heidi is a little bundle of energy and enjoys playing fetch (even though she is hilariously clumsy as she is trying to catch her toys). She is an enthusiastic player and, like most teenage pups, she enjoys jumping up on you. Heidi will need some continued training and a fenced-in yard to burn off her puppy energy. Heidi is a great girl and can’t wait to snuggle up with her new family. We have also started introducing Heidi to other ...

Kasey's foster mom is working closely with the vet, Kasey has significant food and environmental allergies. Kasey is really hoping this winter gives her skin a nice break although she's not looking forward to the cold part! It's not fun being itchy all the time. Kasey is on a prescription dog food and medication to help her body heal.  Once she is all better she will be available for adoption.  (*)(female) (85 pounds) Would ...

042716 Lyla3

Lyla

Lyla came to us via another shelter who requested our help.  She needed a lot of medical treatment and time to allow her skin to heal.  Her severe skin condition was due to untreated demodex mange with secondary infection.  She required medicated baths about 3 times a week and continues to eat a special food. As you can tell from the pictures, she looks like a different dog these days. After many months of treatment, we started to see a much happier and more playful side come out. Lyla is only 2.5 years old and, true to her breed, she LOVES to ...

082516 SHiloh 1

Shiloh

Shiloh is a handsome little Beagle boy with one blue and one brown eye. He is about 5 years old and arrived at Pet Refuge with a painful ear infection. He is feeling a lot better now and is ready to find his very own forever home. Shiloh is in many way your typical Beagle. He likes to follow his nose and will need a secure fence to keep him and his hunting instincts safe. When he is in the mood, he likes to play fetch for a while, but he is generally a medium energy dog. We also recently ...

072816 Jackson1

Jackson

Even though Jackson is technically a senior, he has quite a bit of energy and his favorite pastime is playing fetch. He was adopted as a puppy and returned 11 years later when he didn’t like the child in the home. Yet despite the shock of finding himself in a shelter after so many years, Jackson has adjusted well and loves entertaining our volunteers and getting belly rubs. In his new home, Jackson would prefer to be your one and only as he has not done so well around other dogs and cats. We would love for him to have ...

Chip

My name is Chip. I am 2 years old.  I am a speedy little Chihuahua mix that loves to run in the yard just as fast as I can.  I can be a little shy when I meet you and I don't kiss on the first date.  In fact I am not a big kisser but I do like to sit next to you and enjoy being petted.  Looking for that one special person to share a forever home. (*)(male)(under 15 pounds)   ...

041016 Dee Dee 1

Dee Dee

Dee Dee thinks that it’s a really silly idea that people want to contain little houndy girls. Chain link fences? No problem for this determined canine athlete! A friendly dog in the kennel next to her at the vet’s office? Why not stop by and say hello (after an impressive climb over the wall that divides the kennels). If you like dogs with a lot of personality and a sense of humor, Dee Dee is the girl for you! Dee Dee is about 3 years old, active and playful.  (~50 pounds) Update (July 2016): Dee Dee recently had a few ...

022317 Turkey7b

Turkey

Turkey is a big, silly 2-year-old Terrier-Hound mix looking for someone to show him how great life in a forever home can be. He warms up quickly and becomes a wiggly love bug. Turkey loves to explore the world and go on adventures. He'll make a great companion for an active person, but he still needs to work on his doggie manners and would not be a good fit with another dog or a cat. He loves to play fetch and does a great job entertaining himself with toys. If you take him home, he promises to entertain you with his ...

072216 Grammy1

Grammy

Grammy is a 9 1/2-year-old Labrador mix who was returned to Pet Refuge after spending her entire life in the same home. Needless to say, Grammy is confused about this dramatic change in her life, but she is beginning to make new friends with our volunteers. Grammy has a protective nature about her and will need some time to get to know you. She will have to be an only dog in a quiet home without young children. However, if you are willing to give Grammy a chance, she would love to be your one and only. (60 pounds) Read More
071316 Nacho

Nacho

When you see Nacho hopping through the yard with a twinkle in his eye, you just know that this is a dog with a sense of humor. Nacho is a big 4 year old mutt who still has his puppy moments. Nacho loves to play, jump and will happily put his paws on your shoulders to give you a big, slobbery kiss. Not the best habit for an 80-pound dog, but still endearing when you see Nacho in action. Nacho is a big, high-energy boy who will require a fenced-in-yard. He has also done well around some dogs, but can be ...

Zack

Zack

When I came to Pet Refuge I was afraid of everything and everyone.  Someone had not been very nice to me and left me at an area shelter and I was so very scared that I tried to show everyone how tough I was by smiling with my teeth. My foster mom has tried to reassure me that not all people are scary and that it is ok to be nice to them.  I am still not sure so sometimes and I go back to my old ways. I do love to play with my canine buddies and I am ...

031216 Daisy

Daisy

Daisy is a 9 year old Jack Russell who is looking for that right person who enjoys receiving lots of kisses and a poochie on their lap because that is where she really likes to be!  She is 99% housebroken (occasionally will have an accident), has nice house manners in general. She lived with her brother, Bubba, and enjoys his company but does not seem to like too many other dogs.  True to this breed, even with her age, she is still very active and would appreciate having a fenced yard to run in or would need several, good daily ...

072716 Pooh1

Pooh

Pooh is a 3 year old, Terrier mix who is awaiting just the right person to come in and provide him a special home.  He has a spunky-ness about him that we know someone will just adore.  Little Pooh needs time to get to know you and trust you.  For our cleaning volunteers, many have won him over with patience and lots of praise and of course...treats!  Pooh would do best in a home with teenage or older children and a fenced yard.  He was in a home with other dogs and did ok with some.  He might do best ...
