We are a very dedicated group of volunteers trying to place dogs and puppies into their forever homes or with rescue groups. Our county dog pound is very small and due to this limited space, dogs and puppies will have to face being euthanized unless we can find them loving homes. There are many purebred dogs and puppies, along with some great mixed breeds, that would make great additions to any family. Won't you please consider adopting or rescuing from our county pound and give these great furry friends a second chance?

Adoption Fees
Adoption Fees for dogs and puppies are only $45.00 plus $12.00 for a dog license. For $57.00 you can add a great pet to your family. Additionally, as funds are available, $75 spay/neuter certificates are sometimes available. Pull fees for rescues are $10 per dog or $20 per litter.

Donate a Bed
Our dogs love to sleep on Kuranda Dog beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda dog bed.
