Adoptable Dogs

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please e-mail us at info@dogsforever.org. An application and a home visit are part of the adoption process. We have an all-volunteer staff and most of us have “day jobs” so it usually takes around one week to process an application. To learn more about our adoption application process and requirements, check out the application now!

You can also submit an inquiry using the form below. We will respond to all requests and applications as soon as possible.

Allie is a sweet, loving Staffordshire Terrier who is looking for a calm home to call her own. She is looking for an active family. She would do best in a home with teenage kids and no cats. She gets very attached to her people and just wants to be where you are. She will follow you around the house and cuddle with you on the couch just keeping you company. She is very sweet, affectionate and loyal. She LOVES to go for walks! Allie is a calm girl but still likes to be playful and chase tennis balls in the yard. Otherwise she always likes to be inside relaxing or with you. Allie is house trained, crate trained and walks well on a leash. She is dog selective and does not share her toys so a home where she is the only dog would be best. Once you meet Allie you will absolutely fall in love!

Sweet Scarlett is a 3 year old American bulldog looking for a new home. Scarlett weights aprrox 70 lb. She does good with cats and other dogs if introduced properly. Scarlett is crate trained and house trained as well. The only thing she is scared of is the vacuum and lawn mowers.

  • American Staffordshire Terrier

NOAH & CASEY NEED YOU!!? Noah and Casey are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together. Although they were strays in different counties, they met each other in their current foster home and have been best friends ever since. Due to their large size and zealous, rambunctious nature, it has been difficult to find them a home, so they have been in long-term foster care for a number of years. Potential adopters have inquired about one or the other, but no one has come forward to give them a home together. Are you the special person they have been waiting for? They need a forever home or long-term foster home by December 1. Although their foster parents dearly love this dynamic duo, their lives, health and home situation have changed greatly in recently months, preventing them from continuing to provide care. Noah and Casey are seniors (approximately 10 years old), but ssshhhh! Don’t tell them! They rollick and play together like kids and are always in a good mood; they never have a bad day. They each weigh 70+ lbs. Their needs: • A fenced yard (this is a must, since they are extremely strong dogs and difficult to safely walk on a leash). Must be a physical, 6-ft. fence, not underground. • A home without young children. • Need to be the only pets. Casey is dominant and needs to be the boss, which Noah does not mind. Noah does not get along with male dogs. So the best solution is a home without other dogs. • A safe, generous space where they can hang out when their new family leaves home for work, shopping, etc. Left alone and free to roam, Noah and Casey can be destructive. A reasonable solution would be to have chain link kennels in the basement—or other indoor area—which is used in their foster home. Their new family can purchase these kennels at a reasonable rate from the current foster parents. • Lots of love and one-on-one time. They love people and want and deserve a family of their own. Noah and Casey are neutered/spayed, current on vaccines and have been checked for heartworm and are on preventative. ARE YOU THE ANGEL THESE WONDERFUL DOGS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR?
