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

Ryderryder (Adoption Pending) is a 3 year old neutered male Catahoula. He is a bit shy to start but is very social and outgoing after a quick introduction. Ryder seems to do well with the other dogs and is likely fine with cats. He is approximately 60 lbs.

Kaseykoda is a 2 year old spayed female Rottweiler mix. She is a big, friendly girl who has her basic training but has not had much socializing and exercise so needs some work while out and about! Kasey is currently in a foster home getting some training and socializing so please call ahead to arrange a meet!

Cats for Adoption

opal-gala1Opal and Gala are two 16 week old shy kittens.

Ambrosiaambrosia1 is a sweet 8 year old female tabby looking for her forever home.
