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

We currently have no dogs available for adoption. Please check back!

Cats for Adoption

Meet Sailor!sailor He is a young, neutered, male exotic mix Polydactyl cat. He is super chatty with a big voice and lots of presence to go along with it. He is a big fella at a lean 5.8 kg. He is super friendly and affectionate for someone wanting something a bit different. Sailor would likely be best suited to a home without small children.

Other Animals for Adoption

Myramyra is just hanging out waiting for a new family. She is a young, spayed, female ferret and would love a home with another companion to romp and play with. If you have never owned a ferret please do your research! These lovable little bandits are not for everyone.

Thank You
