Meet the members of our

Secret Crush Club

Many of our shelter pets' adoption fees have been paid by a secret admirer. So, use the money you save to buy them the best bed they've ever had - to match your home, the nicest home they'll ever have.

If you find yourself falling in love with any of these secret crush club members, you can find more information about each animal under the Adoptable Dogs and Cats tabs. 


Atreyu is a staff favorite: playful, fun, eager to get his game on. With his long legs, he may be the fastest runner and ball chaser in the shelter. Atreyu loves going for walks, and really enjoys ANY kind of exercise.
Blaze is a big sweetheart. She loves to rub against and be next to you at all times. Her favorite activities are sitting on the couch, talking to you, lying in the sun beams, being brushed, chasing lasers/lights, and she can't wait for bedtime!
Brandy may only have three legs, but that doesn’t bring down this 5 year old Bulldog, American/Boxer. She’s easy-going, patient, and loyally protective.
Buffalo Bill
Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, and meet Buffalo Bill, our high-spirited, prancing showman. This one-year-old Labrador retriever mix sports a gorgeous chocolate coat, a proud and fluffy tail, white socks, and a head large enough to fill a ten-gallon hat. Like his namesake, Buffalo Bill adapts to his surroundings. He can't be kept down for long. If you love to walk, hike, or jog, Buffalo Bill would make an excellent companion. Come meet him.
Butter is a 3 year old Retriever, Labrador/Mix who’s energetic, but gentle and affectionate. He would do best in a quiet home without children or other dogs so he can have all the attention! Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@ if you are interested.
Carmelo is a 6 year old Catahoula Leopard mix. His personality is mellow but he still enjoys playing and going for walks. While he's not a fan of other dogs, he is perfect for a stable family who is looking for a low maintenance dog.
Daydream’s always happy and loves everyone she meets. This 7 year old Shepherd/Mix is very shy, so she needs someone patient and a home without children or other pets.
Demelza, 5, is a beautiful leash manners and is quite sprightly for 5. Demelza falls in love quickly and will remain loyal to you for life. She is deaf, so we've worked with her on some basic sign.
Ebbie is almost four years, he's also in his prime. This American Staffordshire terrier mix came from Animal Control, so we don't know much about him. He's handsome-his white coat displays muted black spots here and there.
Patsy and Edina came to us together. A family found them out on their own and took them in, asking us to help them find a loving home. These two sisters are just good to the bone. They are polite, lowkey and affectionate.
Elektra spent her early life outside on a thick chain. Since we rescued her, she's been loving on everyone she meets. Elektra does need a little extra help in the manners department, but no one will love you like this.
Henry is a big 8 year old Mastiff/Mix full of love and happiness. He enjoys taking leisurely walks and then snuggling up for cuddles. He was recently diagnosed with Cushing’s disease, a chronic medical condition.
Jacey came to us from a feral community of dogs. Adjusting to life as a shelter dog has required a lot of courage and strength of this small shepherd-mix girl. She needs someone who can see beyond her fear and really see HER.
Jasmine is a 5 year old Chinese Shar-Pei/Mix you will ever come across. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body but she’s so shy, so she needs to find a quiet, home with no children.
Mischief is friendly with other dogs and would probably love to have a dog companion. Most of all, he would love to be back in a home with someone he can love and watch over. He seems housetrained and very used to being around people.
Mother Gothel
Mother Gothel is a sweet 7 year old Shepard/Mix who would love to spend every minute of every day cuddling with you if she could. She loves people of all ages, but isn’t a huge fan of other dogs.
When Oakley smiles, the world seems a little brighter. At 7, she is one of our longest-tenured shelter guests. She's not a fan of crowds or commotion. Instead, she would love a quieter, comfortable life, where the two of you have a routine.
This 2 year old mystery mix girl is the queen of the sharp noses and will take her sweet time smelling all the interesting smells around her. She is on the bigger side, but is considerate enough to walk pretty well on leash. She shows lots of enthusiam when you walk up to her, but calms down quickly for rubs. Panda would love to find her furever home as an only pup with an active family, preferably with older kids.
Patsy and Edina came to us together. A family found them out on their own and took them in, asking us to help them find a loving home. These two sisters are just good to the bone. They are polite, lowkey and affectionate.
Puffin has everything going for him except a home. Intelligent, athletic, sweet, and well behaved, he is nearly perfect in every way. This exuberant nine-month-old runs like the wind! He loves to play with people and dogs alike.
Sailor Mars
Sailor Mars is one smart girl, and she is in foster with a trainer so she is getting smarter every day. She came to us shut down, scared, and unsure of everyone. At home, she is playful and happy. She loves to learn and is eager to please. Unfortunately, she will likely always be wary of new and novel things, but her confidence is building every day. She would do best in a home without children or other dogs because of this.
Spirit came to us emaciated and under-socialized, but is now ready for the best life can offer. She adores nice walks, car rides, and fluffy beds. She’s a bit over eager with cats and would do best in a home with older children or just adults.
Stitch is mellow and low-maintenance. She enjoys being close to you, but does well on her own. She loves exercise and play, but is a homebody, and would do best in a home without children.
