Meet Matilda.
This pretty dog has been let down by quite a few people in her life. She was found as a stray and taken in by some kindhearted people. She slept in a bed every night with a young girl and loved her time with them but the landlord kicked her out and she ended up at a crowded shelter. Long story short – she made her way to us and is now doing great.
Matilda is a very smart, athletic dog. She will thrive with a structured environment and lots of exercise. Matilda is a rough player and and loves playing hard with other dogs. Her play style is a bit much for most dogs and for that reason we think she would do best as an only dog.
She is crate trained, house trained and walks well on leash. Wed like to find a family with breed experience for Matilda.
Please email us for more information:
Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.

Adoptable Dogs


Meet Rocky. This 4 year old shepherd mix is only 40 lbs and has been described as one of the sweetest dogs of all times. Hes gentle and quiet and good with all dogs – we think he would do fine with a cat as well. He is house trained and walks well on leash. […]


Meet Myla. She is a 10 month old, Malinois mix who was surrendered to us when her former family no longer wanted to take care of her. As is typical with the breed – she’s smart and athletic and eager to please. She would benefit from a family that would like to do some training […]


Meet Daphne with the dapples. This gorgeous pup was brought to us from Tijuana. We are not sure what her breed mix is but she is on the smaller side and we think she will be around 30 lbs at maturity. She’s a playful, sweet, well socialized puppy who someone will be so lucky to […]

Meet Louie. He is a three-year-old, 23 pound, purebred #havanese He was surrendered to us by a family that loves him very much.

We saw Turducken’s photo at the Lancaster shelter.  She was emaciated and totally shut down.  It was clear her former life had been one of neglect and sadness.  We wanted to turn things around for her. After we got her the required medical care – she began to put weight on.  Her gentle, loving personality […]
