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 - 250, 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.

He is now housebroken, loves to lay on the couch and is a completely different dog than when he first arrived!

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!)
