Please fill out the adoption application (below) if you would like to meet one of our secondhand hounds!
Disclosure: MANY of our dogs are mixed breeds. Our staff, the shelter staff they came from, and a veterinarian all might have different opinions on breed. We make our best guess, but we CANNOT make guarantees on breeds.
***Meeting one of our dogs/puppies does not guarantee adoption. We often have many applications for the same dog, and must make a determination on what home is best for the specific dog. Unfortunately, this means that sometimes we have to turn down great people for adoption – please don’t take that personally!***
