Forrest, 7 years old, male, 35-pound mix

The delightful Forrest is quite happy at the shelter enjoying the attention of all the volunteers. The volunteers, however, are wondering when that perfect family will come along because this terrific dog deserves to be in a loving home.

Forrest walks well on a leash, rides well in a car, will happily take a walk with you, will happily cuddle with you and will enjoy hanging out with you. What more could you ask for from a dog?

Forrest is a mix of several dog breeds, with apparently Boston terrier as one. He is 7 years old and weighs about 45 pounds.

Weighing in at about one-quarter Forrest's size are Oscar and Autumn.

Oscar, 14 years old, male, dachshund. Autumn, 12 years old, female, dachshund mix

Oscar is a 15-year-old black-and-tan dachshund who does sleep a lot but seems to be in great shape all the same. Like the rest of us, he is ready for spring, so he can spend more time exploring the outdoors. His tail is different from most dachshunds. Some have described it as a corkscrew and others as a helix. One thing is for certain: it is always wagging.

Autumn is a 12-year-old dachshund mix. She takes some medicine for a cough and does seem to have more old-age joint pain than Oscar—but she does not let that stop her. Autumn, too, loves to explore outdoors. She is very sweet and enjoys climbing onto a lap.

We are looking for one family to adopt both Oscar and Autumn, as they are well bonded and have been together for a long time. They are currently in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting them, give us a call.

Ebony, young puppy, female, dachshund/Yorkie mix

New to us is a 14-week-old dachshund/Yorkshire terrier mix named Ebony. She is also in a foster home and can be seen by prior arrangement. Like Forrest, Ebony has some interesting ears—one sticks straight up and the other flops down!

Ebony is currently living with other dogs. Her foster family describes her as "adorable and full of beans." Because she is so young, we are looking for a family that will have someone home most of the time.

Adoption Announcement

J.D. was adopted last week. Also adopted was one of the beagle/hound puppies we mentioned in our last column.


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.
