Dogs In Care


This page reflects the dogs we currently have in care and are or will be available for adoption.  If you are interested, you can find the application on the menu above under the tab “Application”.  Please print the application and fill it out carefully.  It must be mailed in with your original signature on it. 

Should you have questions and want to talk to someone, please keep in mind that many of our volunteers also have full time jobs as well as fostering responsibilities.  They would appreciate it very much if you would make sure to call before 8pm.  If you leave a message for them, they will return it as soon as possible but on rare occasion, it may take a day or two.  We try never to take more than 48 hours.  Phone numbers are in the banner above.

Toby, age almost 11, came into foster care because the grandchildren came to live in his home.  The children are toddlers and do things that toddlers do and it just wasn’t going to work out.  Toby has been a nice dog with humans although a bit headstrong.  He has not done well with other dogs.  We have been working on behavior issues with Toby and he is progressing nicely.

Hope came to us at 6 months of age.  She had been a “failure to thrive” puppy and was very small for her age.  She wasn’t developing normally and so was surrendered to us.  We did extensive work with vets including an MRI, spinal tap, etc.  The diagnosis was that she had likely been deprived of oxygen at some point and that caused brain damage.  Hope is now fostering in a home that plans to adopt her after she is spayed.  At this time she is learning to be as normal a dog as she can be.  Her pupils are pinpoints which likely impacts her sight.  She can hear but doesn’t seem to connect to sounds in a certain range which includes human voices.  She licks like a cat but doesn’t pick up food on her own so she has to be hand fed or fully supervised to get food and water.  Over time with lots of attention, she has improved in many ways and we hope that this improvement will continue.  Because she is so small, we expect it will be some time before we will spay her but when that happens, she will already be living in her forever home.
