 . Marti .
 . Marti .  . Marti .  . Marti .
  • Border Collie
  • Spayed/Neutered
Marti is a lovable and friendly guy. He walks well on leash and is a delight to watch as he gets a case of the puppy zoomies in the yard. Marti's ideal adopters will be experienced and can include kids 12 and older. Marti will need a dog and cat free home to call his own. He is manageable on leash when other dogs are at an appropriate distance but is not comfortable in close proximity. Dog parks and other off leash areas are not recommended.

 . Alec .
 . Alec .  . Alec .  . Alec .
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
If you like your friends goofy, ready for adventure and with a good sense of humor, Alec might be the one for you. Alec is an energetic, adolescent dog who would love an active family to go on adventures with. Toys? Fun training games? yes please! Alec's family should have prior dog experience and kids 10 and older that can handle his exuberant nature. Adolescence is a key part of a dog's life where they depend on their families for guidance and training. Alec is social with other dogs but as a young, dorky guy, will need work on his play manners. His dog friends will need to be carefully chosen to keep him out of trouble. This pup would do best in a kitty-free home. Sign up for one of our classes (agility and tricks!) to teach your new buddy all the skills to be the best dog ever. Primary Color: Blonde Weight: 44.6 Age: 0yrs 10mths 1wks Animal has been Neutered

Pippy can live with another mature, easy going canine. She loves to chase and play.

 . Coal .
 . Coal .  . Coal .  . Coal .
  • Dachshund, Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Coal is a very special dog, all he wants is lots of love and attention. He's an energetic dog that loves to run and play and going for walks. He's very smart and needs someone that will engage him on a regular basis. He responds well to clicker training and enjoys being able to communicate. He tends to find his one person and that becomes his person, the one he gives all his love and attention to. Coal also loves belly rubs (who doesn't?!) and snuggling under a blanket, he's a very good foot warmer. Coal enjoys interacting with other dogs but can also get overwhelmed so his interactions need to be closely monitored. It's very important to reinforce some basic commands with him before getting into social situations. He can be apprehensive at first to strangers but if he's allowed to approach someone on his own then he makes friends much faster. He doesn't like to be pushed too hard into situations he's not comfortable with but with a little encouragement and reassurance he puts down his guard quickly. Coal will need an adult only home. He's well worth the effort!Coal is available in foster - please see or call the Adoptions Department to schedule a time to meet this sweet boy! 707-542-0882 Primary Color: Black Weight: 18.9 Age: 1yrs 7mths 3wks Animal has been Neutered

  • Dachshund
  • Spayed/Neutered
Pele is an energetic young dog that loves his people and toys! He can self entertain with his favorite stuffed animals and will delight with his antics. Pele is a little reserved with introductions to people and dogs but engages readily once he is comfortable. A companion dog 1 class would be an excellent way to get Pele up to speed on his basic training and to build his confidence. He is learning to trust those that handle him and a home with a gentle owner with prior dog experience and children 12 and older would be best. He has co-housed successfully with other dogs and would likely be fine in a home with another confident dog with appropriate introduction. Given his tendency to chase, a home with cats is not recommended. If you are looking for a dog with character and enthusiasm, please come in to meet Pele!

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
All right I have a confession to make. I'm not exactly perfect. So my vision isn't 20-20 and I don't always catch everything you have to say the first time. I'm not exactly a social hit with other dogs either. But I've got quite the fan club here in the shelter who are rooting for me and have convinced me there's someone out there who can appreciate my quirkiness and silly ways. Someone who's not into super long walks or being a social butterfly. Someone who enjoys a dog to hang around the house with and cuddle with on cold nights. Someone who can see how great I am even with my imperfections. That someone will dote on me as the only pet and can include teens 14 and up. Sound good? Come meet me!

Sponsorships like yours help bring attention to pets at the shelter, which increases the pet's chances of finding a "forever home". While there are no time limits on how long an animal stays at SHS, animals benefit by being placed in a new home as quickly as possible.

Your sponsorship gift helps all the pets who come to SHS by providing food, shelter, spay/neuter surgery and veterinary care services as our adoption fees cover only a fraction of our animal care costs. Click here and let us know which animal you'd like to sponsor.
