Bella, 5 years old, female, Rottweiler

This past weekend we met a 5-year-old Rottweiler who needs a new home. Bella was very sweet, calm and well-behaved. She even showed us some of her tricks—sit, down, and giving her paw. We were impressed with her demeanor and, as you can see, she is very cute.

The family fostering her says she is true to her breed and is "smart, sweet and stubborn." They say she enjoys playing tug but will "drop it" on command.

We are helping Bella find a new home. We are told an ideal home for her would be a family experienced with larger breeds. Bella does not realize her size, so a home without younger children or smaller dogs would be best. (She is currently in a home with a small dog and is not aggressive.)

The foster family says she is treat-motivated and so learns quickly. While she is interested in the rabbits she sees on walks, they say she just watches them run away and does not chase.

If you are interested in meeting Bella, she will at the shelter on Saturday from 10 AM to noon and will also be at our open house on Sunday.

Join Us For Our Open House

Rain or shine (let's hope for no rain!) we will be holding our open house on Sunday, May 20, from 2 to 4 PM. It is a great time to visit the shelter, get a tour, meet our volunteers and the animal control officers, and learn about our adoption program.

We are raffling off some dog-themed gift baskets and will have a 50-50 raffle as well. There will be complimentary refreshments. If your dogs are good in crowds (and around other dogs), then you are welcome to bring them. They must be on leash, of course. There will also be some fun contests for your dog to participate in.

A reminder: if you have never been to the shelter, check this map, as it can be tricky to find us.

Alumni Welcome!

We hope to see a lot of alumni dogs at our open house. If you adopted from us, please stop by and say hello. If we have several alumni there at the same time, we can try for a group photo.


The shelter is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to noon, Sunday from 3 to 5 PM and also on Monday and Thursday from 4 to 6 PM.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have several shifts that could use more volunteers. If you have experience with dogs of any size and are 18 or older, please consider volunteering with us. It is very rewarding being able to help the dogs.

In addition to the hours listed above, we have shifts that are not open to the public. We invite you to visit the shelter and learn more about our program.
