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

MangoMango1 is a 1.5 year old neutered male Rotti mix breed. He has a lot to learn in life but has come a long way since coming here. Mango was not socialized as a puppy so is just learning what life is about. He is still very shy but tries so hard and has such a sweet, loving personality. Everyone who meets him adores him and if a family is willing to commit to showing him the ropes they are going to get a very special dog. Mango does need a home with a fenced yard and would benefit from having another social dog he can learn from. No cats at this point for him as he has not been tested. He would be best suited to a home without children under 10 as he doesn't know his manners yet. Mango is currently in a foster home learning all he needs to know. Please call ahead if you would like to meet him.

HoneyHoney1 Adoption Pending!  is a 1 year old spayed female Pit Bull Terrier Bulldog X. She is a sweet, rambunctious girl who is looking for a breed savvy home. She would be best suited to a home on her own or with a male dog and no cats.Honey loves everyone! She is very much a social butterfly. Sadly she has not learned leash manners and is reactive to other dogs on leash so will require proper introductions to other dogs.

Piperpiper is a middle aged mix breed female approximately 45lbs. She is sweet and outgoing and gets along with the other dogs. If you are interested in meeting Piper please come to the shelter.

Ursaursa is a senior bully breed mix female who lost her family and in need of a new one. She is very sweet and has lived with other dogs. She is supposed to be 8 years old but we suspect she is more like 10+ although still active and outgoing. She is a bit anxious here but we suspect she will settle in quickly with a new family. Ursa would be a good companion for an active retiree who has the time to spend with her. Please come to the shelter to meet Ursa and see if she would be a good fit for your family.

Bella is a 1 year old black female Chihuahua mix. She is full of energy and loves her people. She does fine with the other dogs although wary of the big ones. She would love another small dog as a playmate! She can be a bit wary of some strangers but warms up quickly.

Cats for Adoption

Bow1Have rats? Will work for food! We currently have two pairs of young adult feral cats looking for working homes. They are considered un-adoptable 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 few weeks. 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

Foghorn Leghornfoghorn is looking to fly the coop here and find a new roost. If you have some ladies looking for company please consider giving this fellow a place to call home.
