We think it takes an extraordinary person to work at an animal shelter. There are good reasons and wrong reasons to surrender a pet, and you will see it all. You will always be tempted to bring them all home. You will bond with then and become happy and heartbroken at the same time when they're adopted. Yes, those who work in shelters are unsung heroes in our book. Thank You!

Our featured photo is of Madison, and yes, she is up for adoption.

This happy girl is Madison, she is a 7-month-old Lab mix that needs a new home. Madison is very active so she will need a home where she gets a lot of exercise and playtime. She may be a little overwhelming for young children. Madison does get along with other dogs and cats. If you are looking for a new pup to add to your family please come meet Madison.

Madison is spayed, current on vaccines, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $120. Applications can be submitted in person after you meet the dog.
