    1. Your request will be sent to the director along with your email address. If the HS gets a Brittany Spaniel we will let you know.
      In the meantime you can check out all dogs for adoption at Petango. Thanks for your interest in helping to adopt a shelter pet.

    1. I just clicked on the pdf link and the application appeared. I’m sorry I don’t know why it’s not appearing for you. The link is on the Adoption Process page in the first bullet.

  1. We were able to get Dixie a week ago and absolutely love her. She loves to play and is very smart. We were hesitant at first because it alerted that she was not good with cats but took the chance anyway. Being she is very smart and trainable just a quick command of no and be good is all it takes. She sleeps with my wife and I and is spoiled rotten. Thanks for taking great care of her while she was there we are absolutely blessed to have her.

    1. Please look at the Petango site and you can type in your zip code and the types of dogs you are looking to adopt. Sometimes we get boxers, however the City Shelter usually has many pits that need living homes and they don’t get adopted often. If you don’t see any dogs right now, please check back on Petango often as new dogs are added every week. Thank you so much for wanting to adopt instead of shopping from a breeder!
