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.
