Where to Find Us

At this time, we do not have a location open to the public.  All dogs are in loving foster care homes.  If interested in seeing one of our dogs, please complete an application or visit us at one of our adoption events  and we will gladly arrange for you to have a meet and greet.  

Featured Dog

Available for adoption

This is Bentley. He is a 1 and a half year old Pitbull.  Bentley is great with kids, has been fine around other dogs and doesn't seem to mind his foster mom's cats. He is very sweet, loves to run around and play tug of war. He is energetic and will need a family that would enjoy playtime and exercising him. Are you the human for Bently?
