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, mirochip 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.

Bear

Bear is an 11 year old male black lab.  He is good with kids, other dogs and cats.  Bear is housebroken and used to living in a home.  Bear is a very special dog with a lot of wisdom and love to give.

Six years ago next month we received a beautiful black lab who had been badly burned.  No idea if it was something that was used on the yard or something else. 

Despite all he had been through, this was one of the happiest and most loving dogs ever.  He was so thrilled to have attention and to be in a place with companionship. We adopted Bear into a home and his new owner worked with Middletown Vet and Dr. South to get Bear healed. 

Yesterday Bear came back to us through no fault of his own.  His owner no longer had time for him.  Bear is now elderly and is extremely sad and unhappy in our kennel.  Even though we have him in the office, he’s miserable and becoming quite depressed.

We would love to get Bear into a good home asap so that he can live out the rest of his life being doted on and know that he will never again have to worry about being left behind.

If you are willing to open your home to Bear, please email Ginny right away.  This has devastated us as much as it has Bear and we want to do everything we can to give him a safe and secure home in his last years.  ginny@pawsforlife.org
