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

Hugo1Hugo is a 14 week old large mix breed puppy. He is active, friendly and outgoing and will require a family who can teach him all he needs to know. Best suited to a family with dog experience.

London1London is a 1.5 year old neutered male German Shepherd X. He is a goofy young active dog needing someone who can get him out and show him the world. He can be nervous with strange men but warms up once he knows and trusts them. London likes other dogs and would likely enjoy having a playmate. He will chase and harass cats so a cat free home is best for him. Since London is a bit shy a home with kids over the age or 12 would likely suit him best.  

torres1 Torres (Adoption pending) is a big, bouncy shepherd lab mix. He is a big goofy guy but needs some training and socializing. He is approximately 90 lbs, young, rambunctious and not trained so can be quite the handful but if you are big dog savvy you will probably adore him. No first time dog owners for this guy please and he is likely going to be too much for small children.

Cats for Adoption

Clancey is a 10 month old DMH Flame Point neutered male. He is quite timid and would do best in a home with another friendly cat to help him come out of his shell. He sure is a looker!

Polka is an 8 year old DSH neutered male ginger cat. He is very friendly and gets along well with the other cats. He is good friends with Dot and they can be adopted together.

Dot is a DLH Calico spayed female approximately 5 years old. She is a sweet, friendly girl who gets along with the other cats. She can be adopted with her pal Polka for a complete family.

Ash is a 1 year old DSH Dilute Calico spayed female. She is a tad shy to start but very sweet. She would love to be adopted with her sister Ember.

Ember is a 1 year old DSH Calico spayed female. She can be a tad shy to start but is very sweet.

ReenaReena1 is a 1 year old spayed female DSH Calico. She is a lovely little lady and would love a home with another young friendly cat.
