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   

Phil is a six-month-old Rottweiler Cane Corso mix pup. He can be a bit shy but knows all his basics now and is coming along nicely. He is ready for a family who can continue on with his care. He should be fine with other animals and respectful children.

Raphael is a German Shepherd mix breed pup, approximately five months old. He is a bit on the small side but no less active or smart! He would be good for an active home with some dog experience as he's a bit too smart and cheeky for a first timer. Come and check him and his friends out at the shelter. Adoption fees includes the neuter, chip, first shots and deworm/deflea.

Leo is a handsome, sweet and energetic six-month-old hound mix. He's not as loud as some of his counterparts but does like to chat. Leo loves to play with other pups, but needs a family to teach him the ropes on how to be a good house companion


Looking to add some spice into your life? Meet the lovely Remi. This girl is ready for whatever adventure you can throw her way, even if it's just a ball. Higher energy, needs more training, and best for an active home with dog experience.


River is a one-year-old mix breed, likely hound/lab. He is very sweet and cuddly but has no formal training at this time. He loves to play with his buddy Raya and would do best with another buddy as he's not a fan of being on his own. He is a needy fellow and loves to be with you.

Raya is a young mix breed, likely rotti/hound. She is sweet, medium energy but has no formal training at this time. She loves to play with her buddy River but walk time is still a bit overwhelming for her. She is learning to navigate this new life and needs someone to help her along.

Cats for Adoption 

Lucy is the cutest little 12-week-old floofy black and white kitten. She is a very fearful kitten and needs someone committed to helping her be brave. Another friendly social cat to show her the ropes would be much appreciated for this wee girl. In foster care, please call ahead.

Cinder is a 10-week-old DSH grey kitten. She is quite fearful and would be best suited as a companion for another cat or to someone committed to socializing her. In foster care, please call ahead.

Jazzy is a 10-week-old shy kitten. She is sweet but best suited to a calmer household with another friendly cat to learn from. In foster care, please call ahead

Other Animals for Adoption

Dipper is a lovely little Holland lops who is new neutered and ready to find his forever family. He is a lovely, friendly, mellow little guy who will make a great indoor pet.
