German Shepherd Dog (X?) female, 4 years old and about 75 pounds.

Moonlight's loaded with energy, and she's also LOTS of fun! She's got a soft, gentle manner taking treats. During her meet & greet/evaluation, we introduced Moonlight to Harrison--our guest whose motto is IT'S ALL ABOUT PLAY! Moonlight has a rough and rowdy play style which might be off-putting for some dogs, and great for others! We'll update Moonlight's bio as we get to know her. Please check back, and be sure to bookmark our webpage!

LULU and LAYLA need your help! These two wonderful Lab girls are looking for either a temporary foster home for one to two weeks, or a permanent placement.

LULU is 17 years old! She's semi-active and in very good health. She's a super-sweet dog and she's up-to-date on all of her medical/health checks and vaccines.

LAYLA is two years old and a sweet young Lab. She's an active girl and up to date on medical checkups and vaccines.

BOTH of these sweethearts are spayed. Their guardian is unable to care for them for several weeks. We want them to be safe and warm! If you can help Lulu and Layla, please call Niki at 707-972-4370.


St Bernard and ???? SPAYED female, 10 years young and 75 pounds.

MEET CALI--the shelter's Grande Dame! This senior dog is just WONDERFUL--she's so sweet and yes, adorable! We look her for a photo shoot and off leash romp, and fell in love. This gentle giant is a fan of belly scratches, and she rolls over and gives you the "look," and, well, that's it! You're under the spell of Cali! If you love big dogs, and have a special place in your heart for the older dogs--please come to the shelter and spend time with Cali. We're pretty sure you will be smitten, like all of us!

Cali tested positive for heartworm, and we've begun her treatment. We would be overjoyed if she could find a forever home, or a temporary foster home, during her treatment.

Tulip is an affectionate girl who likes to be close to people. During her meet and greet/evaluation, Tulip was introduced to Harrsion, an active, very playful dog, and she was interested in gettng to know him! Tulip tested postitive for heartworm, and we will be treating her at the shelter. We would love to find a foster home (or a forever home!) for Tulip during her treatment. Look here for updates about Tulip as we spend time with her and get to know her.


Mixed Breed SPAYED female, 3 years old and 70 pounds.

UPDATE: Billy, our wonderful and dedicated volunteer, took Nellie out, and gave us these observations: "Nellie is very easy going. She is easy to leash and walks very well. The only time she pulled is when we were going back and she got close to the shelter. She doesn’t care for any treats and just wants to explore and get pets!. She would be happy to sit on a bench or in the shade and be petted. She likes her face and ears scratched and rubbed. She is very sweet and would be a good FIDO Field trip dog if she can load and unload in a vehicle."

Whoa Nellie! What a sweet and easy-going girl! Nellie was surrendered to the shelter when her former people realized there were too many dogs in the house. During her meet and greet and evaluation, Miss Nellie met Clint and was a bit uncomfortable. We'll update Nellie's information as we get to spend time with her, so please check back!


Mixed Breed SPAYED female, 1 year old and 60 pounds.

Honey is a honey--she is sweet and affectionate. Honey just loves people! This adorable young girl is easy going and affectionate. In her past home, Honey lived with two other dogs. During her meet and greet/evaluation, we introduced Honey to a little Chihuahua, and Honey acted appropriately and was well mannered. HONEY CANNOT LIVE WITH OR NEAR LIVESTOCK. As we get to know Honey we will update her bio, so watch this space!

Blackberry was found by a person who kept her safe and warm for two weeks, while looking for her people. We therefore have more information than we usually do for a "lost her way" dog. Blackberry's interim guardian told us that her home includes three dogs and a child, and that Blackberry did well with all of them. She said Blackberry was comfortable in a crate. Watch this space for updates about Blackberry, as shelter staff and volunteers spend time with her.

Mixed Breed SPAYED female, 1 year old and 31 pounds.

UPDATE: Our great volunteer, Billy, gave us his observations about Swirl, after the two spent time together: Don’t judge Swirl by her behavior in her kennel where she can be a bit wild and rambunctious. Taking her through the hallway is also an adventure as she likes to bark and try to get to the other dogs. Once you get her out, her true colors start to shine! Swirl walks pretty good on leash, though she does pull a little. She loves the play yard and playing with the tennis ball. She will bring it back. She won’t drop it but will let you take it from her mouth. She loves affection and will give it back to you. She did really well when Rodeo came up to the fence. She greeted him with her tail wagging and was not aggressive. She is two different dogs in and out of the shelter. Take her out and you will see her good side. She showed me who she really is, which is a sweet girl looking for someone to love her."

Ms. Swirl is a delightful girl, who LOVES to toss her toys way up in the air. She's active, very people-friendly, and an all-around joyful dog. Swirl met Sombra, another female shelter guest, and they did well together. Check back soon (and often!) As we get to know Swirl, we'll be updating her bio.
