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 is the handsome Tsarlis! No idea what breed mix he is but looks maybe Akita/lab with his two-tone brown, wooly undercoat and curled tail! He is approximately one year old, gets along well with people and is not shy with strangers. Not a fan of male dogs but he was just neutered, so we will give him some time on that one. Loves the girls and not a fan of cats. Active but not crazy high energy. Someone is going to love this dude! He is approximately 75lbs.

Hazel is a two-year-old spayed female Cane Corso X. She is reserved with strangers but adores her humans. She is good with male dogs and has lived with cats. 




Ruth and Ruby are two four-month-old Redbone Coon-hounds who are ready to find homes of their own. Please do your research! They are a very sweet but active breed who bay instead of bark and when their nose is on, their ears turn off, so best for leash walks and fenced yards.

Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug are four-month-old Cane Corso Rottweiler puppies looking for their forever families. These will be big dogs and need confident owners who are not intimidated by their breed or size once grown. 

Cats for Adoption 

Shelby is a 12-year-old long haired grey spayed female. She is mellow and friendly and has lived with other cats.

Jora is a two-year-old spayed female DSH black and white mother cat who has raised her kittens and is ready to move on to her new life of being spoiled.

Libra is a lovely young sassy little dilute torti. She may be a bit too spunky for small children but would do well with room to roam and trouble to find.




Venus and Serena are two lovely little white and grey kittens about 14 weeks old. They are friendly, outgoing and social and can be adopted together or on their own.

Pippa is a little nine-month-old DSH grey kitty who is shy to start but very sweet once she settles in.

Other Animals for Adoption

Mable and Dipper are two lovely little Holland lops who are now neutered and ready to find their forever families. They can be adopted together or on their own.
