ABOUT DAPHNE: Hi, I'm Daphne. If I could have any career, it would probably be as a doggy model. Everyone oohs and ahhs over my gorgeous red coat, beautiful amber eyes, adorable pink nose, and stoic expression. I was rescued from a cruelty case in October of 2019 and was SO SHY at first, but have made great strides and make progress in little ways every day. FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "Daphne is so low maintenance and she is gentle and sweet. We haven't had any issues with accidents inside and she gets along great with my dogs!" She also reported that I do well when left alone. LIKES: My favorite treats are canned chicken and hot dogs! I enjoy looking out the window and watching the world go by, but my favorite thing to do is play with other dogs.IDEAL HOME: I need a calm and quiet environment and require a home with a securely fenced yard. Walking on leash in the neighborhood still makes me nervous. Please bring everyone in the household to meet me. DOGS: Absolutely yes! Having another friendly dog in the home is a requirement. I get along with calm, independent dogs, but I really love playing with puppies. KIDS: No, thank you. Adults Only for me, please.COPY/PASTE this link into your browser to see more cute photos/videos of Daphne: https://bit.ly/2UDlOrfAPPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled.

Winston is a gorgeous boy with a smile as big as his heart! He is a quiet and thoughtful pup who, that once he gets to know you, will cuddle with you and enjoy a soft spot to chew on a bone. He is shy when meeting new people, but comes around with some TLC. He is a rock star with dogs and quite the lady's man. He is looking for a quiet, caring, and compassionate home that will help him continue to build his confidence and understand he is shy when meeting visitors. He would do best with another confident dog to help him continue to build his own confidence. Got cats? That's cool! He lives with dogs in his foster home and ignores them. So if you're looking for a sweet boy, who would love a four-legged sibling, is a well-behaved fellow that loves to run around with friendly dogs in your securely fenced backyard, and doesn't even mind cats, then Winston is your perfect match!

ABOUT ME: My name is Tanner Rose and if you need a little sass in your life, you've got the right gal! I love playing with my toys and getting affection from my favorite humans, but prefer when people take their time getting to know me. I do best in an environment that is structured and routine - if you take me on my daily walks or play tug-o-war with me, I am totally content. I'm not much of a cuddle bug, but prefer to snooze around the house, on my bed, or in my crate (which I love!). I'm a low-key dog just looking for my best friends. My foster says I'm a big goof and a total joy to have around.I'm also very treat motivated, so I'm pretty quick to learn new things! You might not notice this at first, but I am deaf. It's not a huge deal but I may startle easily if I can't see something coming. SPECIAL SKILLS: My owner will have to learn to train me using visual cues instead of audible ones - but don't fret, I seem to pick things up pretty quickly! My foster parent says I know sit and am both crate and leash trained. DOGS: I want to be the star of the show!KIDS: 12 and up, please! APPOINTMENT TYPE: I am in a foster home right now, so please schedule an appointment to meet me!Copy and paste this URL into your favorite browser to see more cute photos/videos: https://bit.ly/34uzJBdWe also have Seniors for Seniors - If you are 65 or older and adopt a dog or cat over the age of 7 years, the adoption is free!
ABOUT ME: Won't you take a Chance on me? I'm the goofiest and most lovable pup you'll ever meet. I'm always up for a run in the sun, especially if it involves my favorite stuffed toys, but when I've tired myself out, there's nothing I love more than curling up on my human friends' laps for some well-deserved cuddles. Who says I'm too big to be a lap dog?! I am a staff and volunteer favorite!FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "Chance loaded in to car very easily before & after hike. He does pull on leash, but as he tired during the hike, he did better. Chance enjoyed all the new smells, but when I said ‘come' or ‘let's go Chance', he started walking again."LIKES: Well, snacks of course! I also love zoomin' around the play yards with my human friends. KIDS: I'm lookin' for a home with kiddos 7+ please. If possible, I'd love to meet whole family before I go home!DOGS: I love being in doggie playgroups and I'd love to meet your dog too!Copy/Paste the following link to your browser to view more photos/videos of me: https://bit.ly/3xr5t88APPOINTMENT TYPE: Fill out an inquiry form today if you're interested in taking a "Chance" on me!

ABOUT ME: Hello, I'm Leo! Don't let my regal name fool you, I'm quite the goof! I'm a big boy who loves other dogs, and I love to snuggle with the people who know me best! I came to the SPCA from a pretty tough situation with my sister and we've both been through a lot, but she's already found a new home. Now it's my turn! If you want a sweet, goofy boy with all the love to give, just ask for Leo! I can't wait to meet you!FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "Leo is such a sweet, wiggly, chunky guy! He walked very well on the leash and was great with our resident dog. He responded to his name and even knew how to sit. He caught on to house training after only one accident. He slept well in a kennel and did not make a peep all night. Leo was very loyal to me and he treated me like a queen, never leaving my side and listening to my every command. He stayed a little weary of any man that approached me.Over all, he was super sweet and will be a great dog once he learns that not all men are scary.PS. he gives the wettest kisses!!"Dogs: Sure! I can be a bit much for some of my other canine pals, but the staff can always introduce me to potential pup siblings before going home!KIDS: 5+ please!APPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled due to location - fill out the adoption form on my page to meet me!Current Special - Dogs over 6 months are only $25 to adopt!
