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

Jake is a 2 year old neutered male German short-haired Pointer. He is a high energy guy who loves everyone! He gets along great with the dogs he lives with but needs proper introductions to strange dogs so not an off leash or dog park guy. Great with kids, needs a fenced yard and someone who is familiar with working type dogs.

Cats for Adoption

Polo is a 1.5 year old fluffy tuxedo neutered male. He is very social and friendly and gets along with the other cats. He is best suited to an indoor/outdoor home in a safe area. He would love to have a farm to roam and people to visit!

Hank is a DLH grey male tabby cat. He is a big fellow! He is quite shy still here at the shelter but will likely be quite the ham once out of here. He came in very matted so has had a lionshave so is looking a tad naked. Best suited to a home without small children at this time.

Kenny is an 8 year old DSH black neutered male. He is calm and has lower energy which is great for the quiet life. He does get along with the other cats but mostly keeps to himself.

Other Animals for Adoption

Willow is an adult female California Doe rabbit looking to find a forever home.
