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.

Buster is a 13 year old senior boy. Bust came to us from Missouri when his owner had to go into hospital and could no longer care for him. Buster is so sweet and just want to lay around and maybe go for a short walk or better yet a nice car ride. Buster has cataracts and can't see all that well. He also need some teeth pulled and he will have that done in our care. We are looking for a foster or if your interested in adopting we would have you foster until he is healthy enough to be adopted. If you would like to meet Buster or any of our Dogs.

:Doberman Pinscher: 6 Years old: Female Sweet Sadie is looking for that perfect forever family. Sadie is a professional cuddlier who loves to give kisses, and loves to go on walks. Sadie may look intimidating at first glance, but that's not the case, she is a sweetie at heart. Unfortunately Sadie does have a few requirements for her perfect home. She will need a strong handler, someone who will understand her and her personality. She does not get along well with female dogs, however, she does get along well with some male dogs ( gets along better with male dogs who are more submissive.) She will need to be introduced correctly to other dogs, she doesn't like it when other dogs walk up to her. Also, she is not a fan of small children, she loves her space so she will need a home with no small children ( children who are teenagers and above.) Even though Sadie has some requirements for that perfect home, please do not have that steer you away from her. She is a sweet girl who would love a chance in someone's home.

*Female, American Staffordshire Terrier 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 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!

  • 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?
