Dogs for Adoption

Dogs for Adoption

There are always dozens of dogs in the shelter looking for a second chance and a loving home, so it is  impossible to show them all. 

Below are some of the dogs that have been here a long time but are fairly representative of the breeds and ages that are always here.

 

You may not find the dog for you straight away, as dogs are often brought into us because they don't like other dogs, can't be homed with cats, don't like children, need an extremely active home or are very strong and independent.
Please visit the shelter to meet more dogs and please do keep visiting us, as you just never know when the dog for you may turn up!
