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

Torres (Adoption pending) torres1is 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

Avalon (adoption pending) is a 1 year-old, soon-to-be-spayed female torbi. She is a sassy girl who would prefer a home without other cats but some fun loving humans to keep her busy!

Charlie is a senior DSH black neutered male. He is in early stage kidney failure but is doing well and would like to spend his day snuggling with a new family not locked up here at the shelter. He does fine with the other cats and is very friendly. Do you have space in your home for a lovely senior? He needs to be on the renal diet to support his kidneys but is so lovely he deserves a second chance.

Other Animals for Adoption

Dazzle is a young, male budgie looking for a place to call home.
