I need a foster! Please apply today!

  • Animal ID#: A298692
  • Dog Name: Marco
  • Dog Sex: Neutered Male
  • Approximate Age: 3 years
  • Marco is house- and crate-trained and has lived with a cat. He’s a very sweet, soft boy who had a rough life before coming to the shelter. He’s fearful of men and prefers/enjoys female handlers. He’d be best in a home without young children (under 16) and he needs to be your only dog. This boy truly deserves a bright future as part of a family. Can you make his dreams come true?

Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process or to find out more about Marco.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
