Hi. My name is Sadie, and I am the cutest young mixed-breed female you have ever seen. It has been a long road for me here at the shelter. A new place, with new people and many barking dogs, can be pretty scary at first. But I have come leaps and bounds since I first got here. I used to spend my days curled up in the corner of my kennel, terrified of anyone and anything, not to mention the leash. Now I will greet anyone at my kennel with loads of kisses and a spinning tail.

Now that I have become more comfortable, I will even walk outside on my leash, and love to jump around in the yard and accept all your love, returning it with tons of kisses. While now and then I still might get spooked, I will play the princess card and have you carry me until I am comfortable. No place feels safer than in your arms. I cannot wait to find my family that can provide me a space to fully adjust and be the sweet, playful pup that I am.

Hello. My name is Kaia, and I am an adorable 6-year-old female mixed breed. I am calm-mannered and sweet as can be. I haven’t spent much time around other people or dogs, so I may be a little bit shy at first. But once I know I can trust you, and I won’t want to leave your side. I may even climb in your lap in hopes for some snuggles.

I spent my whole life with one person, and I’m looking for my next best friend and family. If you are looking for a loyal companion, I know that we could be a perfect match. I can’t wait to find my forever home where just you and I can conquer the world together or where you can show me what it’s like to be part of a big happy family. With you by my side, I am so excited to see what the world offers.

Sadie and Kaia will be fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped before they go home. Apply here: and visit us Monday-Friday between 1 and 4 p.m. Bring your kids and resident dogs for a meet and greet. If you’re unavailable during open hours, email to make an appointment.

Kitten season remains busy, and many felines need your help. Keep them safe and healthy until they get big enough to be adopted: donate wet kitten food, kitten milk, cat carriers, and non-clumping litter. DBCHS fosters will be grateful. The shelter can always use bleach and paper towels, too. Donate in person 1-4 pm Monday-Friday or visit DBCHS Amazon Wishlist It takes a village, and we’re grateful for ours.
