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

Astro is an eight-month-old black male Shepherd mix. He is a blank slate and needs to learn all there is to learn. Astro will be a great dog for an active family! Best suited to a home who has some dog experience and will likely do fine with other pets if taught properly, but would likely chase a cat that wanted to run. He is currently about 50lbs. Probably not for small children at this time but older kids should be fine.

Cats for Adoption

Newman is a five-year-old DSH neutered male cat. He is lovely, friendly and easy going, and should do well in most households.

Victor is a big, handsome fluffy grey tabby who is super chill and friendly. He is approximately three years old.

Please contact the shelter to set up a time to meet the adoptable pets 250.658.5745.
