*******SPECIAL NOTICE*******

06/27/2019 - Our 06/22 project was a success.  We didn't get much in volunteers, but we got a long way in the project.  As of today the south awning is complete (minus a few screws LOL).  This is pretty amazing as we got it done just in time for a couple of rainy days.  What a relief not to have to worry about wet dogs.  We will be adding some lighting, but that will come on a later day.
Here are the next building event dates and some idea of what will be going on.

  • 07/06 - Shed Ground Prep - This is the beginning of one of the "mini projects".   We are building two sheds for storage.  This bit will entail brush removal, ground leveling, gravel spreading and some base framework for the sheds.  What this day will entail will depend on what we get done before this day.

  • 07/13 - Shed 1 Build - Construction for the first of the two sheds.

  • 08/10 - Shed 2 Build - construction for the second of the two sheds and the completion of this "mini project" - we hope LOL.

  • 09/07 - North Awning.  This awning will complete the North Run "mini project".  The awnings provide about 80% coverage and there is tree coverage for most of the rest.

Please join our Facebook group to follow all the changes as we go through this process.

Adoption Application
The adoption application is required prior to setting up an appointment to meet the dogs.
Meetings are done by appointment only after a complete application is received and approved.  The application is a key part to the interview process so please give me thoughtful answers as yes/no responses may be eliminated for lack of detail.

Please be patient while the pictures load.
We currently have quite a few dogs available so it may take a bit of time.

Chicky is a special case.  She has received some pretty intense abuse in her past.   We are seeing a lot of improvement, but she still had a long way to go.  She is looking for a home without children or other pets.  She needs someone who has some knowledge and experience in working with abused and defensive aggressive dogs.  She is in our kitchen where we walk through all the time.  Every time we pass her we engage her with a treat and command.  She is, at times, allowing us to pick her up, but startles very easily.  We see so much potential there.  She really wants to be a loved and loving pet, and is working hard to get past her fears.  Chicky's placement will require multiple visits to ensure she knows the people she is going home with.  They will also be required to continue training with an in -home behavioral trainer or have experience with defensive aggression abused dog training.

This little man has a bit of naughty mixed in with his sweet.  He is searching for a quiet home with one or two adults who have dog experience and no children.  He needs some structure and verbal correction.  He is responding well to leash corrections while walking.  He is doing well with the other dogs two or three at a time.  We have also discovered he has some skills with a very dependable sit and down.  Momo's coat has been shaved, but it is growing out nicely so I don't believe there will be any long term damage from it.  He is not a fan of a busy crazy environment.  Our impression of him is that he was never socialized well and has some self guarding instincts that are going to need structure to control, so a home with someone who has some training experience is going to be essential with this little man.  Because of his sensitivity to new people we are require multiple visits with him prior to going home. We want to make sure that he knows you and that you are able to handle him confidently prior to heading off to another new environment.

Spike is a super sweet senior guy.  He loves people, is affectionate and engaged.  Right now he has a bit of a naked butt as he is recovering from a tail amputation.  The shelter records do not specifically say, but we suspect he was hit by a car as he appears to have some stiffness in his hips. He is taking it easy hanging out under my feel helping me keep things under control.  His coat was shaved at the shelter and is is growing out nicely.  He has done great with the other dogs and will make a very affectionate companion.

Katie is a very special little girl.  She is totally blind.  The vet indicates likely injury, but possibly congenital.  She arrived at the shelter with acid burns along her back. She is doing very well and the burns are healing.  I am not showing the bad pictures here as it can be difficult for some to see.  She is super sweet and affectionate.  She needs a pretty quiet home where she can learn her way around.  We are working on getting her a halo to make navigating her space an easier process and to help build her confidence.

Juno would like to have a home without other dog competition.  He loves his people and can be a people guarder.  For this reason we are also looking for a home without young children.  He is a sweet fun little guy with a prance for a walk.  Juno is a fun and silly guy who would thrive working with obedience training.

Willow is super sweet and affectionate.  She had a pretty major tummy surgery removing several memory masses, but non of which was concerning.  She is recovering well and is super sweet and affectionate.

Riley has a mix of good and naughty.  He was never well socialized so needs some work there.  He is a young guy that just needs some proper training.  He can be reactive to some dogs, so we are wanting a home without other dogs.  He is quite a character and needs someone who is able to manage structured training.
Our Vet is a bit backed up so he isn't scheduled for his neuter until the 18th.

Tracy is just as sweet as can be.  She loves hanging in a lap and did wonderfully for her bath and grooming. 
Such a pretty little girl that loves to be petted.

Moogie came back to us.  The home we found just wasn't the right combination.  Moogie needs someone who has experience working with dogs that need a firm alpha leader.  He does very well here where we catch the dominate expressions and keep them curbed, but in an environment that he is allowed to get away with those dominate behaviors he will quickly take control.  He is 90% sweet love of a little man, with 10% super smart boss that thinks he needs to be in charge.  Moogie will go to an adult only home.
