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

Walk? Run? Ball? Ringo is up for anything that comes his way. Looking for a goofy, fun, outgoing dog for tons of adventures? This is your guy. Ringo has had no formal training but is willing to jump through hoops for a cookie. This guy may not be suited to the relaxed type but if you love adventure as much as him you wont be disappointed. Ringo is one of those in-your-face type fellows so gets along with other bouncy, rude dogs but the more reserved types may find him a bit much. He is respectful but doesn't know when to lay off the charm. Ringo is a 1 year old husky/bully type mix breed neutered male, approximately 65 lbs. We are assuming that fluffy felines would be too much temptation for Ringo but will test him a bit more to see. If you want to set up a play date with this handsome fellow please call the shelter at 250.658.5745.

Cats for Adoption

Charlotte is a lovely long haired, diluted ginger girl who came in with her little kitten. She is now ready to move on to a family of her own. She is calm and sweet and would prefer a calmer household.

Frost is Charlotte's little dilute tortoiseshell kitten who is now old enough for a home of her own. She can be adopted to a home with other pets or if you are looking for a very cute pair she can be adopted with her mother. Frost is shy and will need a home willing to spend time with her to get her used to being handled. She would do best in a mature household.

Other Animals For Adoption

Sam and Wheat are two adult male pet rats hoping to find a home of their own. They are quite friendly and easily handled.

Tomtom is an adult black Muscovy drake who needs a place to call home. If you have a place for this big handsome duck please call the shelter.
