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   

Alan is ready to find a family that can continue on with his training and socializing. He is very sweet and loves his people but is reserved with strangers. He had a rough start and is getting better by the day but needs a family to show him how to be a happy family member. He is eight months old and is half Rottweiler and half Cane Corso. In foster care, please call ahead to meet him. 

Phil is an eight-month-old Rottweiler Cane Corso X pup. He can be a bit shy but knows all his basics now and is coming along nicely. He is ready for a family who can continue on with his care. He should be fine with other animals and respectful children.  In foster care, please call ahead to meet him. 

Finn is a 16 week old Bully mix puppy. He is very active and friendly and would be a great addition to most households. He has been around big dogs, small dogs and cats. 

Nova is a 5-6 month old spayed female Collie/Aussie mix. She is active and outgoing and a wee bit sassy. She will need an active family where she can learn all the things puppies need to know. 

Cats for Adoption

Reggie is a six-month-old DSH ginger and white neutered male. He is still shy but very sweet and loves the other cats. He would make a great companion for a household with an existing cat.

Lasagne is an eight-month-old very shy neutered male ginger tabby. He is best suited to a calmer household with a friendly cat who can teach him how to be a content companion cat.

Linguini is an eight-month-old DSH neutered male tabby. He is still very shy and is best suited to a quiet home with another friendly cat to show him the ropes.

Tortellini is an eight-month-old shy spayed female tabby. She is best suited to a calmer household with another friendly cat.

Other Animals for Adoption

Bart is a male adult Californian rabbit looking for a family of his own. He was found dumped at the road side and brought to the shelter hoping to find a second chance.

Theo is an adult European domestic rabbit who was dumped out in local farmland. Luckily, he escaped the resident dog and was brought to the shelter. He is hoping someone will take him in and keep him safe.
