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   

This handsome dude is Toby. He is a 6 year old neutered male German shepherd. He has lived with other dogs in his previous home but can be unsure meeting them when out and about and should get proper intros. He has never lived with cats. Toby is best in a home with older kids only as he can be a bit nervous. He’s had a complicated first half of his life and would love to settle in with a savvy family who will fulfill his needs.

Adoption Pending! Sweet Sunny has lost his family and is hoping to find a new one. He is a 1.5 year old neutered male Catahoula X. He’s a bit reserved with strangers which is breed typical but he’s very sweet. These dogs make excellent farm dogs and back country hiking dogs. He has lived with other dogs and cats so should be fine in a multi pet household. If you are an active person with the time to train and socialize a young dog, this may be your guy. In Foster care, please call ahead to meet him

is a 5 year old Frenchie/Boston/Bulldog type mix. She is lovely and friendly and wants to say hello to all humans, Dogs not so much, she is selective in her dog friends so would prefer to be an only canine child and not visit dog parks. 

Cats for Adoption

Blink is a pretty little brown tabby spayed female. She is quite shy but loves other cats. Shes best suited to an indoor home with another social cat to teach her how to be social. She is under a year old. 

Mason is a 3 year old neutered male Ragdoll type cat. He is mellow, likes attention and seems okay around the other cats. Not tolerant of small children. 

is a 10 year old DLH black spayed female. She came came in matted and unkept with a mouthful of rotten teeth. We had to removed all her teeth but she is feeling much better and is hoping someone without other cats will take her home. 

is a 4 year old neutered male DLH ginger and white cat.  He is a lovely easy going cat that gets along with other cats and will fit into most households.
