Got Treats?!?! Donut loves them. A two time offender of our local shelter, once heartworm positive (and treated) came back as a stray with a broken front leg. She has spent many months of rehab to heal and she is now ready to transition to her forever home.  Donut is not fond of passing cars (we probably know why) and take a moment to warm up to people. She is a sweet girl that would make a great companion in your home. The outside w...

Frank is an amazing guy! He is happy, friendly and an all around typical boxer. He loves his people, will follow you around the house and walks well on a leash.  Frank is housebroken, crate trained and up to date on his shots. He is about 5 years old and 56 lbs. We are looking for a home for Frank that has strong boxer experience. He is a little rough around the edges and will need some training to fine tune this guy. ...

Norah - eager to please and full of life. She was found by some nice people and turned into the shelter. Once she was vetted and no owner came forward, we scooped her up. Norah is about a year old, maybe a little older. She is 50lbs, fully vetted, HW negative and spayed.  This beautiful mix is energetic and loves to run. She loves bones and is learning about toys. We would like her to go to a home with another equally energetic pup that c...
Dogo Argentino
Dog /Male
 Sticking with this years book theme, he has been named after Oliver Twist; a young, good-hearted, and kind--but mistreated--orphan from a Charles Dickens novel. He is a friendly and quiet 2 year old boy from Florida who recently came into the rescue when we saved him with just hours of notice from being put down! We are happy that Oliver is safe now, will no longer be mistreated, and we can help him find his forever home! O...
