PLEASE NOTE – our adoptable dogs are not Assistance, Service or Therapy Dogs. The dogs listed here are wonderful dogs who are happy and healthy but are just not suited to the working dog life in any of our programs.
We call these dogs CAREER CHANGE DOGS because they’ve chosen a different “career” path of fun and leisure as a pet. Yes, PET is a valid career choice. After all, when you think of all the responsibility our pets have for our happiness and well being, how they cheer us up when we’re down, make us laugh… and someone needs to sit in that special sunny place on the living room floor… it takes a special dog to be a family pet.
These dogs make loving pets and companions and are looking for their forever homes.
If you are interested in adopting a Career Change Dog, please complete our application (see below) and our staff will contact you when we have a dog that might be right for you. Our primary concern is the find the most suitable match for both the dog and the new owner.
