Adopt a Special Needs Dog

We offer the Buddy Program to help some of our dogs that have special behavioral needs or have been in our care longer than others.

This program pairs these dogs with Animal League associates and managers to help the dogs with various issues such as housebreaking, socializing, manners, and even just to give them extra exercise. Associates and managers try to bond emotionally with each and every one of the Buddy Dogs to further support the improvement process.

What’s a Mutt-i-gree®?

Adoptable animals are often mixed breed pets, animals that we call Mutt-i-grees®, and when it comes time to obtain a pet, unique, healthy shelter animals are an amazing choice.
