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

Mayamaya1 is a young female bully breed mix. She is super wiggly and outgoing, and gets along with all people and most dogs. She seems to ignore the cat but will need proper introductions to make sure she will get along. 

MindyMindy1 is a 1 year old female mid-sized mix-breed. She is super sweet but you better be ready to run! She is always on the go and would make a super little sporting dog. She is approximately 45 lbs and super active. She is good with dogs who can handle her energy. She gives a wide berth to the cats here but will likely chase ones who run. 

MojoMojo1 is a neutered male Bully breed mix. He can be a bit shy to start but is super sweet. He seems to get on fine with the other dogs but does have a high prey drive so should be monitored closely with little dogs and no cats for this fellow. 

Cats for Adoption

Owl is a 4 year old neutered male grey tabby cat. He is handsome, laid back and will fit into most households.


Barn Cats!Barn Cat1 We currently have three barn cats available for farm properties. These cats come spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They are wild cats so keep their distance from people but do make the best ratters for farm properties. If interested please contact the shelter. Adoption fee is by donation.

Other Animals for Adoption

DotDot1 is a young adult spayed female bunny looking for a place to call home. She has been vaccinated for the Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease.
