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.

Deuce

Deuce is 9 month old male lab weighing about 60lbs. Deuce is your typical young lab that wants to play and romp around all day! He is good with other dogs, cats and children. He is a ball full of energy, so he would need a ton of mental stimulation and physical activity. He would benefit from a family to take him on a ton of hikes. He rides very well in a car and likes to wade in water, but we think with a little more experience he will be an awesome swimmer!
