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

Harmonypup1 is a 16 week old spayed female German Shepherd mix puppy. She will be a big girl and will need puppy classes, housebreaking and someone to spend the time socializing and showing her all the world has to offer.

Little lively LucyLucy11 is looking for a lasting love. Lucy is a 5 year old Miniature Pinscher X. She loves her humans but take a short time to warm up to new ones. She gets along with other dogs but would prefer to be the only princess in the house so she doesn't have to share her favorite things!

Adoption Pending! Meet Marco! Marco1He is a 1 year old German Shepherd Labrador mix. He is super sweet, full of energy and needs some training. With work this guy will be such an awesome dog, he has a nice temperament but has never had the opportunity for a normal life. Marco has been bounced around and spent way too much time in a kennel in his short life. He needs someone wanting a nice friendly active big dog and willing to spend the time going to classes. He gets along with other dogs but is reactive on a leash, otherwise his leash manners are coming along nicely. This guy is ball crazy, he loves toys so much he would make a great working dog. He would probably be okay with a big dog or savvy cat but will chase if they run, unless you have a ball of course.

Cats for Adoption


Barn Cats!Barn Cat1 We currently have three barn cats available for farm properties. These cats come spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They are wild cats so keep their distance from people but do make the best ratters for farm properties. If interested please contact the shelter. Adoption fee is by donation.

Other Animals for Adoption

DotDot1 is a young adult spayed female bunny looking for a place to call home.
