Our Featured Pet
Hi there. My name is Peanut. Don't let the name fool you...I am a good size boy, weighing in at 80 pounds. I am a strong boy and will pull at times on the leash to explore, but that is because I am blind and want to know what that smell is! I am an older gentleman, around 11 years old per the shelter. I was surrendered to the shelter by my owners due to a lifestyle/household change, along with my brother Miget. I am a very pleasant, calm boy, content to sit by your side, take a nap, chew a bone, take a nap...can you tell I like to nap! My favorite napping spot is in the chair with my foster mom...its a squeeze to get in there, but I make it work. I am housebroken and crate trained. I am good with other dogs...don't really pay them much mind. I would do best in a home with older children -I'm a bigger boy and I may knock the wiggly children over. As for being blind, my foster mom says that I amaze her with my ability to navigate the house and find things like the back door and water dish. My foster mom also says that I am a pleasure to have around!
Please read our adoption information if you’re interested in adding Peanut to your family.
We regularly hold Meet & Greet events throughout each month. This is a chance for you to come out and meet our adoptable dogs and fill out an application to adopt or foster. The times and locations are always available on the left side at the top of this page, so be sure to check there frequently to see where we’ll be!
Please note that not all of our dogs attend each Meet & Greet. If you are planning on coming out to see a particular dog, it is best to check our Facebook page the morning of the event to view the list of dogs scheduled to be attending.
As a growing rescue group, we are in constant need of volunteers who can assist us in saving dogs. If you are able to provide a foster home for dogs until they are adopted, please e-mail us for more information. Fostering is such a rewarding experience and is vital to our goal of placing rescued dogs into new permanent homes.
Think that buying a puppy from a pet store isn’t such a big deal? THINK AGAIN.
That cute little puppy you want to buy is from a puppy mill and yes, pet stores WILL and DO lie to you and will tell you whatever you want to hear to make the sale. It happens ALL of the time! In buying a puppy, you’re helping to keep puppy mills in business. Don’t believe me? Educate yourself.
