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 (Adoption Pending) 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 of 12 would likely suit him best.

Cats for Adoption

We currently have no adoptable cats at this time. Please check back!

Barn Cats looking for working homes. They are considered unadoptable due to their fearful nature but make the best ratters! They come spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They do need to be fed and have a barn or shop for shelter and will need to be contained in a secure area for the first month. Adoption fee is by donation to our program to help end the over population of homeless cats. Please consider providing a home for a pair of these beautiful wild souls, with Victoria's worst year for rats you wont regret it!

Other Animals for Adoption

We currently have no small animals available for adoption. Please check back!
