Chevy - A2016111: Labrador Retriever Dog aged 4 years 2 months

Tiny Chevy was found in a box with 6 siblings at the nearby store by an employee. He was adopted with his sister, and was returned by adopter. They said that he had become aggressive with her. In the shelter, he is a sweetheart with humans, but doesn't care much for other dogs. He would do best as an only pup.

Daisy2 ( Gianna) - A2014199: German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow Dog aged 6 years 0 months

Daisy (shelter name Gianna) came into the shelter as part of a litter. They were found living under a mattress on the side of a road. They were very young and not social. Daisy was adopted in December of 2014, and returned in July of 2018. During that time, she was given to relatives and left outside to live. When she came back, it was very clear that she had had little to no socialization. Daisy very slowly came out of her shell and showed her sweet nature. She will need an understanding, patient adopter who is willing to work with her at her pace, with love and kindness. Because of her history, we feel she will need to be adopted by someone without children, definitely not young children.

Fitzgerald - D2020058: Husky/Shar Pei Dog aged 4 years 7 months

Fitzgerald came to us as an owner surrender. It wasn’t that his family didn’t love him, they definitely did. But Fitzgerald’s human sister had severe allergies that couldn’t be controlled and his family had to make the heartbreaking decision to give him up. Fitz is a good boy. He’s house trained, has great manners in the house, and he behaves well with other dogs. He’s also a very vocal dog, often making a growling type sound when he’s playing or being loved on. And did we mention how much he loves tennis balls? This sweet boy didn’t fare well the short time we had him in the shelter, therefore, he is in foster with a great human and his dog. His foster reports that he has some separation issues, which is not uncommon to see in a dog that has been surrendered and taken away from his home and family. We believe that in time when our boy gets into a stable, permanent home situation, a home that is committed to helping him to overcome it, that issue will fade. Fitzgerald is a Shar Pei mix, that breed loves very hard and gives everything they have, and they are also very emotional dogs. We feel that Fitz went through a pretty difficult time went the recent changes, but we also believe he would be a very good family dog and be more than willing to sink his heart into his people again. If interested in meeting this gentle soul, please let us know so that we can arrange a meet and greet through his foster.

Luigi - A2014027: Labrador Retriever/Chow Chow Dog aged 6 years 1 month

Luigi came in as part of a litter of five. They were stray and living under a mattress on the side of a road. The puppies were very young and not social. Most likely because of that, and the fact that he has lived his entire life in a shelter, Luigi is very timid and unsure of most people. He will need to be adopted by someone who is very patient and gentle, and willing to work with him at his pace. He is a sweet boy when around the few people that he knows and trusts. He had a volunteer who spent time with him for an many months. During that time, he came out of his shell and showed much promise, so we believe he would learn to trust again. Since he has no history of being around children, he cannot be adopted to a family with young children.

Melinda - A2011026: Labrador Retriever/American Shelter Dog Dog aged 9 years 3 months

MY ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN PAID by a Donor in Nov 2013! Please come meet me, take me to the dog park. My name is Melinda. I am an adult Lab/Collie Mix. I've been here at CARA since 2012. I'm told black dogs are passed on by so many and I can tell you for the most part we are. We are the most common too. Overall we are just as lovable I've had interest and was almost adopted in 2017 from a family who had just moved here from another country but sadly on my adoption day they received bad news that changed their course. They did come to the shelter and told me themselves. So here I sit waiting. While I love my CARA caretaker and volunteers we all want our own family and home. We are really just as neat and loving as any other dog here. I am looking for someone to be patient with me since I've lived a shelter life for so long. **Unfortunately I'm no longer interested in sharing so I will need to be the only pup in the family.

Meritt - A2015212: Hound Dog aged 6 years 9 months

This handsome boy is Meritt. And yes, he is just as sweet as he is handsome. Meritt was found as a stray in December of 2015 and brought to the shelter. He's about 3 years old, a perfect #LoveMebreed, and beyond ready to find his family. Our sweet boy is a big 'ol boy, with a heart bigger than he is. He still enjoys toys as much as he did when he came to us, and he is very entertained with toys. But his favorite activity is romping and playing outside on a beautiful day. He is still very puppy-like when he's outside in his play yard, running and playing with everything he has in him. Meritt is pure joy to be around and we can only imagine how awesome he would be if given the chance to live in a normal home with a loving family. Please consider coming to meet this special baby, chances are he is exactly what you are looking for. If you are interested in adopting this pet, please visit www.carams.org for information on our Adoption Process and to fill out an online adoption application. Breed identification by visual means is unreliable for most dogs. We are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. Each dog at CARA is an individual and we do our best to describe each animal based on personality, not by breed label.

Nathan - A2011027: Labrador Retriever/Crossbreed Dog aged 11 years 3 months

This good looking boy is still hoping his hero is out there. He's been overlooked by so many visitors to the shelter. He doesn't stand out like his lighter fluffy friends in the front so getting noticed amongst 125 other dogs is pretty hard. Despite it all, he hasn't given up and we know and believe Nathan's hero is out there! He's a great dog who would make some lucky individual an incredible, loyal best friend. With a little patience during his transition from shelter life and some basic training the sky is the limit for Nathan. We guarantee his lucky adopter will wonder in the end who rescued who. Come meet this fellow today. Adoption fee waived for Senior dogs.

Odell - A2012008: Shepherd Dog aged 9 years 8 months

Meet Odell. This pretty boy was found in a neighborhood wearing a harness back in 2012. After no one claimed him he was brought to CARA.

He's looking to be the one and only fur baby in his next home. Come by the shelter and meet Odell.

Peanut Butter - D2019047: Hound/Labrador Retriever Dog aged 1 year 10 months

Peanut Butter came from a city shelter extremely evacuated and with blunt force trauma to his head. Thankfully, he recovered well and is somehow still so sweet and loving. He gets along well with everyone, though he does like to chase kitties. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard and lots of love and patience, as he has separation anxiety.

Robin / Sparrow - D2012001: American Shelter Dog Dog aged 8 years 5 months

Meet Robin. She and her siblings came to CARA as small puppies in 2012. We rescued them from a bad part of town with little human contact. Robin is very shy and needs an adopter who will have patience with her as she transitions from shelter life into a forever home. She's the perfect size dog and we believe with a dedicated human by her side she will come out of her shell and make an awesome loyal companion. Come meet her at the shelter today. She is bonded with her sister, Sparrow.

Not good with small dogs or cats, but a sweetheart of a girl, otherwise. She absolutely cannot be around small animals.
