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 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 big young adult male German Shepherd mix. He is a still a bit unsure of his world so needs a kid free home where he can learn the ropes of being a regular household pet. London's history is unknown as he was dropped off as a stray dog at a local vet clinic and we have no more info than that. He seems to enjoy the company of other dogs and would probably like to learn from another pup how to manage this new world. He is medium energy and aside from leash skills he has basic manners and training. He is not a shy dog just is unsure what his human companion expect from him. For more information please come to the shelter and meet London to see if he is a fit for your household.

torres1 Torres (Adoption pending)is 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

Seymour is a DMH Dilute ginger approx 5 months old. He is a shy boy to start but warms up quickly. He would love a friendly feline companion to help him gain confidence!

Preah is a young adult Bengal/Pixie Bob mix cat. She is a bit skittish so will need some time to settle in. Best suited as an indoor only cat without young children. She would probably do best with another cat in the household.

Nelson is a young adult ginger male Rex X cat. He would like to be adopted with his brother Bromley as they adore each other. They are very friendly but a bit skittish and a bit unsure about being picked up.

Hobbs is an 8 month old DSH ginger tabby who is a tad shy but sweet! He would love another feline companion to teach him to be brave and for a playmate!

Misty11Misty is a beautiful DSH blue/grey female approximately 8 months old. She is very sweet, loves the other cats and would like a calmer household with her sister Reena or another cat to keep her company.

Reena is a very pretty 8 month old DSH Calico female. She is still a little shy so would do best in a calmer indoor home with a friendly cat to keep her company. She can be adopted with her sister Misty or on her own.

griffinGriffin is a 6 month old DSH Ginger and white neutered male kitten looking for his forever home. He is currently in foster care so please call ahead to meet him.
