Meet Flynn. This beautiful soul has been at the shelter since September. He’s been patiently waiting for SIX MONTHS. People passed him by because he is 8 years old and has a wonky eye (birth defect and doesn’t bother him at all).
SIX months without a soft bed, some good treats, a walk around the block, or scratch behind the ears. And yet, that did not change his sweet and easy-going demeanor. Many dogs would’ve become severely stressed under those circumstances — but not him. Now he is out and safe with us and grateful for everything that he has. His foster says he is one of the nicest dogs she has ever met (and she’s fostered A LOT of dogs). Dog and cat friendly, house trained and an all around great guy. We’re looking for a loving forever home for this kind hearted dog.

Meet Leo.
This handsome bluenose boy has been patiently waiting at the shelter for 8 months. With a name like Leo – we knew he had to join our rescue family. He has had basic training and is now crate trained, house trained and walks great on leash. He does well with other dogs but would do best with laid back dog who is not very pushy (not a fan of dogs in his face). He has a nice, mellow energy but does enjoy long walks and hikes. He is a great dog and so deserving of a forever home to call his own.

Meet Theodore. This big beautiful teddy bear was turned into the shelter on Christmas Day with a badly broken elbow. He sat and waited… and waited for someone to save him – but nobody came. We knew he was in a lot of pain – but he stayed brave and happy despite the stress he was under. So – we decided to give him a second chance.
He now had surgery to repair his elbow and he is recovering well. The staff at the hospital was quickly won over by his sweet temperament and happy go lucky attitude. He’s a gentle, happy boy who does well with other dogs. He always has a wagging tail and an ear to ear smile. Hes about 55 lbs and 5 years old.

Meet Norman.  He is a 3 year old pitbull we rescued from a neglectful situation.  His former owner adopted him from the shelter and then abandoned him at an elderly relatives house who was not equipped to care for him.  He spent his days and nights outside with no medical care.  We stepped in and sent food and toys and paid for a trip to the vet to have an irritation on his leg looked at.  Finally we agreed to take over his care and had him join our rescue.
Turns our Norman was a diamond in the rough – a real gem of a dog. Norman is as sweet as he looks.  He is good with all dogs big and small – medium energy and an all around great guy. He is currently in a cage free doggy day care and does great there. He is truly a breed ambassador.

Misa

Meet Misa. She is a mature female lab/pit mix who spent over a month at the very busy Riverside shelter. We think she is about 8 years old. She came into the shelter in rough shape, emaciated, with major hair loss and some old wounds. It is clear her previous life was a tough one. […]

Meet Misa. She is a mature female lab/pit mix who spent over a month at the very busy Riverside shelter. We think she is about 8 years old. She came into the shelter in rough shape, emaciated, with major hair loss and some old wounds. It is clear her previous life was a tough one. When we told the staff there we wanted to rescue her they were over the moon. During her time there she had won over the hearts of volunteers and staff and they all really wanted to see her make it out of the shelter to safety.

She was kenneled with other dogs at the shelter but now that she is feeling better she has shown some signs that she would do best as an only dog. She loves going for walks and laying on her bed in the sun. She is so grateful for all the love and affection she is receiving out of the shelter. She would be an easy dog to please, a soft scratch behind her ears, a bully stick every once in a while and a stroll around the block. She would be forever grateful to have the life that eluded her during her first 8 years.

Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.

Flora

Meet Flora. She was turned into the shelter after she was attacked by two German Shepherds. She was badly injured but – instead of getting her proper medical care – her owners took her to the shelter. She is a 10 month old pitbull mix. We expect she will be around 55 lbs at maturity. […]

Meet Flora. She was turned into the shelter after she was attacked by two German Shepherds. She was badly injured but – instead of getting her proper medical care – her owners took her to the shelter. She is a 10 month old pitbull mix. We expect she will be around 55 lbs at maturity. She is smart, gentle and eager to please. She does well with other dogs and has a good amount of puppy energy so she will need an active family to keep her well exercised.

We rescued him almost a year ago. We had gone to the shelter for another dog who was tragically euthanized while we were on hold waiting to confirm a pick up time. We wanted to turn that tragic situation into a positive so we rescued Pickles on the spot.
He loves swimming and would be totally jazzed for a home that has a pool. He’s an active guy so he needs a family that enjoys hiking or running and someone that will take him for long walks. He’s good with other dogs but would probably annoy a senior so another playful dog would be a good match. He likes to rough house so needs an experience adopter that can manage his play style. Do you like to run or hike? This could be an awesome match for you.
He is now patiently waiting for his forever family. It would be a beautiful thing to see this dog and his forever home.
