Available Dogs for Adoption

We visit the local SPCA on an ongoing basis and select dogs that are scheduled for euthanasia, but would make a wonderful pet. All of our dogs are current on their shots and have been neutered.

To fill out an application for one of our dogs, please go to the Adoption Policies page.

Adoption fees are $150 - 200, which pays for spay/neuter and up-to-date vaccinations. We accept cash and checks only.

Paws for Life is located on private property, and is a completely volunteer-run facility, so appointments must be made in order to meet our dogs or see our facilities.
If you cannot keep an appointment for any reason, please let us know. We are volunteers and work our schedules with our families and jobs around the appointments you make with us.

Betsy

Betsy is a 5 year old black lab whose owner passed away. She is good with other dogs, kids and cats.

Betsy was intimidated by the camera, so we tried inside - but she was unsure of the tile floor (many dogs are!) She is THE sweetest dog! Even being scared her tail never stopped wagging and she really didn't want to be afraid. She has a beautiful ear set when the camera isn't pointed in her direction.

We will try for better pictures once she is comfortable, but we both really hope she will be in a home soon - she is seriously a special girl. Don't wait on better pictures - come meet her or you may lose out!
