Ireland is a big puppy and is our youngest dog this week. She did not show well in the kennel and appeared to be very upset. That said, once outside of the kennel, she was a lovely little dog, eager to please and wanted to interact with us. She warmed up quickly took treats and gave kisses. She will do fine in a better environment and is, no doubt, used to a house and a couch. Let's get our beautiful Ireland back into a home. Might that home be yours?"

Though it's best to visit in person, when calling to check the availability of a pet, please use the ID#, not the pet's name. This is the fastest way for staff to give you the most accurate information on a pet's status possible
Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy (or kitty). Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
