Featured Pet: Indy

Indy is a handsome 4-year-old pup who is whip-smart and eager to please! Before entering our care, this adventurous guy never had a home indoors, so he'd love to find an owner who will have the time, patience, and experience to help him adjust to the new lifestyle of a spoiled indoor dog. He would prefer a home with older respectful children and has never lived with other pets before, so we'd recommend giving him a slow introduction to any new family members. Could this beautiful boy be the pup for you? If you're interested in adopting Indy, please visit

Doggy Backpacks

You have helped our Foster and Dog's Day Out programs grow exponentially during COVID, and our dogs are now getting more exposure than ever, which is so exciting! However, many people who see our adoptable dogs out and about assume they already have loving homes, so we'd like to fix that by arming our volunteers with a few of these cute, trendy backpacks!

Please consider purchasing and sending us one of these 'doggy packs' through the link below to help identify our adoptable pets while they're out on adventures, and also give our volunteers an easy way to carry essentials like toys, treats, water, and potty bags.
