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.

PG

PG is an 8 year old female Chihuahua mix weighing about 13lbs. She is good with other dogs, cats and children. Unfortunately, PG's owner passed away and that is why she has found herself with us. This is your typical lap dog and shot gun rider! She most of the time does her own thing, but is willing to be with you too! She loves to lay in her bed and just be the couch potato of the house!

Socks

Socks is a 3 year old male hound mix weighing about 60lbs. Socks loves to play with other dogs, and older children! He takes a little bit to warm up to you, but once he does he wants all of your attention! He loves to romp around in the play yards and would thrive in a home where he would get plenty of exercise.

Moose

Moose is a 3 1/2 year old male lab mix weighing about 55lbs. Moose has had a rough start to life and may look a bit rough around the edges; but that doesn't stop him from being the most friendliest guy around!

Nova

Nova is a 6 year old male beagle mix weighing about 30lbs. Nova is good with other dogs and cats. Nova has the sweetest disposition and will follow you around like a little duckling. He always wants to be loved on and will sit for any treat! Nova does have a mild case of resource guarding with his bed and bones. He has never shown any type of resource guarding when it comes to giving and taking his meals from him. We have had Nova with multiple different energy dogs and people and have never found anyone or anything that he doesn't like. With this being said, we do not recommend him being in a home with children

Update:

Nova has the sweetest disposition and always wants to be with you! He gets along with other dogs and cats, but would rather have a quieter household where he can be the center of attention (or a quieter buddy to share the space with.) He ADORES car rides and going for walks! He does have a small case of resource guarding (bones,and such but without those things he is golden!)

Cash

Cash is a male 11 month old lab mix weighing about 40lbs. He is good with other dogs and children. Cash would do well with an active family to take him on hikes as he walks well on a leash. With Cash still being young, exercise is very important with him.

Update:

Why is this sweet boy still here?
Afternoon out! Yesterday, Taylor took cash out for some one on one out of the kennel! He rode like a perfect gentlemen in the car, went to Lowe’s and walked around wanting to greet everyone he saw (which he was determined to do so!) Cash absolutely adores all people and children! He would be best suited as the only animal in the home, but he has enough love to give that is worth 5 animals!

Think you are seeing double! Kind of, Luca and Owen are brothers! How can you tell them apart? Luca has the cutest stubby tail as Owen has the majestic long tail! Luca is a 1 year old male Corgi mix weighing about 40lbs. Luca like his brother is a happy go lucky guy who is good with other dogs, cats and children. He would benefit from an active household to give him tons of mental and physical stimulation!

Carolina

Carolina is a 1 year old female golden retriever mix weighing about 40lbs. Carolina is a very shyl gal, but is so willing to open up. Once your trust is gained we believe she is going to be such an outgoing dog. When out in the play yard, she enjoys laying under the tree and sometimes romping around to her own beat. She is good with other dogs and cats. She would need a quieter household for her personality to blossom! Children are not completely out of her future, but possibly older children to help boost her confidence.
