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.

Cats for Adoption

Dimitri is a 2 year old DMH Bob tail black neutered male cat. He is outgoing, fun and gets along with the other playful cats. He ignores the dogs but keeps his distance so should integrate into a home with dogs over time. He might be a bit to much of a  rough player for small children. 

Jupiter is a 4 year old DSH grey and white neutered male cat. He is a pretty laid back fellow who would prefer to be the only feline in the family. He is a nice boy and should do well in most households. 

is a DLH Black and white neutered male approx 3 years old. He is a shy fellow so needs a quiet indoor home and we suspect he would do well with other cats especially if they young and playful. 

Nix is a senior chubby DSH black spayed female. She is looking for someone to love her despite the fact she is a senior, black and a little over weight. She needs someone who will help her trim down so she can reach her back to scratch and groom herself. Right now she is over sensitive to being touched on her back because of this and needs someone who will help her groom until she can do it on her own. Best no small kids at this time and when it comes to other pets she would just like to not be bothered but will likely do okay. 

Other Animals For Adoption

Holly is an adult blonde Hamster looking for a home after she was dumped outside a pet store. Please contact the shelter if you would like to meet her!

Justice is a young Turquoise budgie looking for a place to call home. She was found at a local bird feeder and was not claimed. She is looking for a second chance at a place called home. 

Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Kaitlyn are 4 adult female Siamese Rats. They were left in a box outside a local pet store and are hoping that someone will find a place in their hearts to give them their final home. They can be adopted together or in pairs. 

River is an adult pastel colour morph (maybe coral glow?) ball python. Please do your research before allying to adopt river as we would like to make sure this is her last home. 

is a young adult black eyed white female ferret. She has been well handled so nice and friendly. Please do your research before applying for Brooklyn as ferrets are not easy pets to keep and are not great pets for young children. 

Casey is a young adult Coturnix quail looking for a place to call home.
