Looking for a big, bouncy bundle of fun and energy? Meet Zappa! This 11-month-old Yellow Lab is brand new to our shelter and we doubt that it will take him very long to find his perfect forever home.

Willow – adopted

Willow is an 8 year old Corgi or Cattle dog mix gal that came to us from another shelter.  She has been with us for a little while as she has been recovering from being hit-by-a-car.  This was quite an ordeal because when she first arrived and went to be seen by our Vet, we found that both hips were dislocated.  Ouch!!!  How this gal still managed to be able to move around is quite the story.  One hip easily went back into place and the other hip healed just slightly off but nice enough that she gets around fine and outside ...

Winnie – adopted

Hey, all you girls looking for the magic weight loss plan Pet Refuge has the answer!!  On June 24th I found myself tipping the scales at 64lbs.  Now mind you that is a big number for many medium size dogs but for a standard Dachshund it was not a pretty sight.  I can't help it if this girl loves her food but that same food was going to make me not such a healthy girl.  So, here I am at Pet Refuge thinking all my prayers were answered until someone said the four letter word, you know the one "DIET".  That's right this girl was ...

My name is Oscar and when I came to Pet Refuge I was a rather large boy weighing in at 62 lbs.

I'm approximately 4 years old, housebroken, crate trained, and know some words like sit and stay.  I don't come very well when I'm in the backyard chasing squirrels and ...

I'm approximately two years old and a miniature poodle (8 lbs).  I am housebroken and I love to jump all the time because I want you to pick me up.  Don't try to leave me in the house because I'm really speedy at slipping through the door.  I'm also very noisy.  ...

This big, lanky boy might still need some time to grow into his long legs and his big paws. Booker is an approximately 1-year-old Shepherd mix. He is full of energy and loves to run around as fast as he can. What makes that particularly adorable is the fact that he can be rather awkward at times.

012516 Figgy 1

Figgy – Adopted!

Figgy was pretty sure that he would much rather sit in the photographer’s lap and cuddle than get his picture taken. Figgy is a sweet little Terrier mix of about 2 years old. He was transferred to us from another shelter, so we don’t know much about his previous life. However, from what we can tell so far, Figgy would love to be a lap dog and spend these long winter nights close to his special person. He can be a bit hand-shy when you first meet him (and we would thus prefer a home without young children), but he ...

Medical Hold Hi, I'm Oden.  I was recently returned to Pet Refuge when I was found wandering the streets by the friendly police officers.  My original foster mommy came right away to pick me up.  She took me to see a nice lady, although the poked me a few times and that hurt.  They gave my foster mommy some bad news as they said I was heart worm positive, whatever that means.  A few days later I went back to see the nice lady and they gave me something that hurt for a few days but my foster mommy says ...

Patch is one of the happiest dogs that you will ever meet! She is a fun, energetic and playful 2-year-old Terrier mix who can jump 3 feet in the air when she is excited (or when she is trying to catch a ball). She requires a fenced-in yard so she can have a safe outlet for her energy. Patch has never met a stranger and is quickly becoming a volunteer favorite. We have not had a chance yet to try her with other dogs, but we believe that she might do well with dogs that match her energy level. Read More

Chica – Adopted!

Chica is a gorgeous long-haired German Shepherd. She is only about 2 years old and still a puppy at heart. She originally came from a home with a Chihuahua and we strongly suspect that she had no problem letting the little guy be the boss. When we introduced her to a cat, she had no idea what to make of the hissy little creature and decided that avoiding the cat was her safest option. Chica would benefit from continued socialization and leash training. She is a very sweet girl who clearly want to please. She enjoys affection and likes being ...

With his gorgeous markings and his big, soulful eyes, Scooby is about as handsome as they come.

Scooby loves to play fetch (even though he is not always the most coordinated pup when he chases the ball) and he promises to bring lots of energy and laughter to someone's life.Since he is 92-pounds of puppy energy, he should not go to a home with young children and he does require a ...

If you're looking for a constant companion or even a jogging partner, she's your gal. She is potty trained and has excellent house manners. She protests a bit from her crate, yet doesn't seem to do damage when she is out of the crate, so perhaps she doesn't need one. She is jealous of attention given to her canine companions, so she is best as an only dog. She is a fairly calm, not a particularly rowdy dog ...

Dodger is happiest when he has a soccer ball that he can carry around and throw in the air. He loves playing with people, but he does a great job entertaining himself with a ball.

Rosie (one of the Fab 5)

We are VERY happy to say that Rosie has been adopted! Big Rosie had a huge mammary tumor which was removed and she had 20 teeth removed because they were being worn down and causing her pain.  I can honestly say that besides Bear, she was one of the hardest dogs to try to work with in the beginning.  I can only compare her to an alligator whenever you tried to touch her, she just started snapping.  Oh, and Big Rosie also has limited vision.  Not totally blind like Archie but probably 50% loss of eye-site.

Elmer needs a home with a fenced-in yard and older children. He can be picky about his doggy friends, so we believe that he would do best as an only dog in the home. Elmer knows all of his basic commands and has excellent leash manners.  He is a very smart, food-motivated boy and is having a great time on our brand new agility equipment. And don’t let his short legs fool you, this ...

Ellie – Adopted!

Meet Ellie! Ellie is a 2.5-year-old Terrier mix (maybe mixed with an Italian Greyhound). Ellie is a sweetheart of a dog who has never met a stranger and loves attention. She likes other dogs and would do well with a playmate that matches her energy level. Ellie sure has energy to spare! Ellie requires a fenced-in yard in her new home. At our shelter, you can usually see her running laps through the yard – just for the pure joy of running. Unfortunately, if you’re not careful, she is just as happy to dart out the front door and make ...

Bear (one of the Fab 5) – Adopted!

After 4 years with us Bear was ADOPTED!!!! Bear is a 7-year-old Chow mix with a rough past. He was rescued from a hoarding situation in which he was kept in deplorable conditions. He still has huge scars on his beautiful face. He has come a long way since his first days in our shelter, but he still needs an adoptive parent with time and patience for him. He is shy with new people and seems to only be comfortable being petted if he feels entirely secure. He likes to "check" on his people to see what they are doing ...

Stanley – adopted!

Stanley is a Hound mix of about 5 years old.  After having to recover from a terrible break in his back leg and having it amputated, he has recovered fully and loves nothing more than chasing his soccer ball through the Pet Refuge yard. Stanley is a sweet pup who loves belly rubs and sleeping in, but he does not always show his best when he is in a kennel. All Stanley needs is an understanding family with a fenced-in yard who is willing to give him the sense of security he craves. He can be reserved at first, but ...

Jake – adopted!

Jake is feeling like a new pup after his dramatic makeover. Jake came to us as a matted filthy mess. He was visibly uncomfortable and initially distrustful of people. However, after our groomer shaved off his mats and gave him a much needed bath, a new, beautiful dog emerged. Jake is a 9-year-old Shih Tzu who requires a little time to adjust to new people. However, he is starting to enjoy human attention and interacting with our volunteers. He will most likely have to be on eye meds for the rest of his life, but he is otherwise in good ...

Sugar – Adopted!

Sugar has lots of stories to tell!  She is a Lab mix of about 7-8 years old.  She is looking for that special someone that she can bond with and will give her lots of attention.  She prefers to be the only dog in the home and has done well around children.  Sugar is a gal that will need a lot of exercise because sometimes she gets anxious and needs to have some release of energy.  We have done a lot of diagnostic work up through our Vet and one issue that Sugar does have is that sometimes, she cannot ...

Hamlet – Adopted!

Hamlet is an active little 7-year-old Miniature Pinscher who is looking for a family that will love him for who he is. His previous owners told us that he can be a bit leery of new people and would do best in a home without young children. However, he was a very affectionate boy with them and liked to follow them around. He also enjoys his walks and will get excited as soon as he sees his harness. Unfortunately, Hamlet does not always let you know when he has to go outside and he will need someone that is patient ...

Candy – adopted

Candy, the bull terrier, is one sweet dog and we are guessing her age to be about six. She came to us with an unknown past and we are learning more about her every day. Recently she had surgery for her spay and to have a mammary tumor removed, which was benign. Surprisingly they found she had objects in her stomach and they appeared to be chewed up plastic toys, none of which are missing from her foster home. In her foster home she doesn't chew things up, though she is watched carefully. Candy has recovered from her surgery and doing ...

Rogo – adopted!

Hi, my name is Rogo and I am so excited to meet you! I hope that you are here to adopt me! I am still a young dog of about one and a half years and I can’t believe that I have already found myself homeless. I am bursting with energy and my favorite hobby is running through the yard and playing with the volunteers here. I would love to have a big fenced-in yard in my new home (preferably a privacy fence since I am quite the athletic little guy). I am eager to learn and definitely still need ...
