The CRD Animal Shelter has wonderful pets waiting to be welcomed into a good home. If you are looking to adopt a new best friend, please visit the Shelter or fill out an application for one of the animals listed for adoption.

Dogs for Adoption 

This is the handsome Tsarlis! No idea what breed mix he is but looks maybe Akita/lab with his two-tone brown, wooly undercoat and curled tail! He is approximately one year old, gets along well with people and is not shy with strangers. Not a fan of male dogs but he was just neutered, so we will give him some time on that one. Loves the girls and not a fan of cats. Active but not crazy high energy. Someone is going to love this dude! He is approximately 75lbs.

Maggie is a two-year-old spayed female mix breed, likely Bully/Rotti type. She is approx 55lbs and very sweet and outgoing.

Cats for Adoption

Rowin is a very sweet 3-5 year-old neutered male tuxedo cat. He is very laid back and friendly but not a big fan of the other cats. He would make a nice family cat for a single cat household.



Ben and Midnight are two very friendly DMH black cats who can be adopted together or separately.

Other Animals for Adoption

Lacy is a little gerbil looking for a forever family.
