It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every
new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all
the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving and they are.

"To a dog the whole world is a smell"
- Unknown -
Nelson was rescued when his time was about to run out, and he was brought to Animal Aid.
He needs to get to know people to feel safe with them. He's a very nice hound,
at his best when running with canine friends. There is a home for this
shy, friendly boy somewhere out there. Won't you consider him?

This dog has separation anxiety and needs to have another dog in the family.

Did you ever notice when you blow in a dog's face he gets mad at you?
But when you take him in a car he sticks his head out the window.

This handsome lad is easy-going, energetic, housetrained, and loves people. He loves to play
and will happily play with any toy you throw for him. He gets along well with other dogs.
This young pup is ready to go home!

Lab mix / Female
Weight: 55 lbs.
Age: 2 years
September 21, 2017
Many of the qualities that come effortlessly to dogs - loyalty, devotion, selflessness,
unflagging optimism, unqualified love - can be elusive to humans.
- John Grogan -
Ashlee came to us from another shelter, and now she has another chance to find a
loving home. She's a nice young girl who is active and really enjoys attention.
Come and see if she is the right one for you!

A dog is one of the remaining reasons why some people
can be persuaded to go for a walk.
- O.A. Battista -
Bucky would love to have a back yard where he could run and play and going on walks with
you would be even better. He is very friendly and has been described as a social butterfly.
He has a beautiful brindle coat and a cute little curly tail
which makes him quite unique looking!

Mix / Female
Weight: 80 lbs.
Age: 3 years
DOB: 2/31/13

Adoption Pending
"She had no particular breed in mind, no unusual requirements. Except the
special sense of mutual recognition that tells dog and human they
have both come to the right place."
- Lloyd Alexander -
Stella finds herself in need of new home due to no fault of her own. In her
previous home she was housetrained and has been around children and
cats. She's a happy, active girl, so walks and outings would be perfect.
Come soon. She'll be waiting for you!

"It is my experience that in some areas, Charley is more intelligent than I am."
- John Steinbeck -
This older boy was found wandering on his own and taken in by a compassionate
person. Beau is hard of hearing and may be totally deaf but has great eye sight
and sense of smell to find his way around. He seems to love everyone
and promises not to disappoint the family that takes him home!

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
~Vivian Greene ~
Sweet Tanner embodies this quotation. He has been at the shelter far toolong and
yet he makes everyone smile on a daily basis. Tanner does amazing tricks with
his special ball. He is truly an All-Star soccer player! He knows several
obedience commands, waits nicely for treats, and loves going for walks
and car rides. Tanner would thrive in an adult household. He is
sensitive if someone grabs his collar or neck leading us to think that
there were some traumatic moments in his past. He would also
love to be an only dog or selectivelychoose his canine siblings.
Tanner is such a favorite pup that he qualifies for our Senior Special
Program. Call us for additional information about his program.
