The CRD Animal Shelter has wonderful pets waiting to be welcomed into a good home. If you are looking to adopt a new best friend, please visit the Shelter or fill out an application for one of the animals listed for adoption.

Dogs for Adoption

Billie (Adoption Pending) is a 4 year old spayed female Catahoula. She is a sweet girl who is a bit shy but friendly. She appears to be fine with cats and good with other dogs but a bit reserved at first. She is approximately 60 lbs.

Ryderryder is a 3 year old neutered male Catahoula. He is a bit shy to start but is very social and outgoing after a quick introduction. Ryder seems to do well with the other dogs and is likely fine with cats. He is approximately 60 lbs.

Lexi (Adoption Pending) is a bundle of bounce! She is a 10 month old spayed female Kelpie mix. Lexi is good with other dogs but maybe no cats at this time. She is very sweet and friendly but is still a puppy with no training so probably not ideal for small children and she will likely knock them over. She is approximately 50lbs.

Koda kodais a 2 year old spayed female Rottweiler mix. She is a big, friendly girl who has her basic training but has not had much socializing and exercise so needs some work while out and about!

Cats for Adoption

Arnold is a 1 year old DSH black and white neutered male kitty. He came in as a feral kitten but has come around nicely. He is still a bit timid but loves to be rubbed and patted. He would be best as an indoor only cat in a quiet household with another friendly cat or as an indoor/outdoor cat on a large, safe property with other cats.

Bridgette and Burnadette are two 10 week old kittens who came to us as ferals. They are coming around nicely and although they are a bit timid still they can be handled no problem. They would be best suited to a quiet indoor only home with another cat to keep them company or as indoor/outdoor pets on a large, safe farm. They would be happy to go to a home together or with another cat to keep them company and show them how great people are.

Matilda is a little DMH black spayed female who had been fending for herself for some time. She is a bit stressed at the busy shelter here but is quite sweet and petite. She is a lovely little girl who needs a quiet home.
