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

Bruno (Adoption Pending)bruno1 is a 10 month old black and tan German Shepherd. He is a big, handsome fellow looking for a shepherd-savvy home. He is good with dogs with proper intros but can be reactive on leash. He lives with a dog savvy cat and is good with people. If you are interested in meeting this fellow please fill out the application and we can set up a time to meet as he is in a foster home and not at the shelter.

Kasey (Adoption Pending)koda is 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! Kasey is currently in a foster home getting some training and socializing so please call ahead to arrange a meet!

Cats for Adoption

Ambrosiaambrosia1 is a sweet 10 year old female tabby looking for her forever home. She is very sweet and cuddly but does have a thyroid condition which requires daily medication. If you are interested in giving this lovely senior a home please contact the shelter.

Barn Cats! 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

We currently have no small animals up for adoption. Please check back!
