Victor is one of those dogs you meet and can’t help but smile. This boy has a zest for life that doesn’t quit. His tail is always wagging and he strives to make friends with everyone he meets. •

Victor is a two year old brindle pit bull terrier mix and so striking, if we say so ourselves! He absolutely loves attention and is eager to please. He is gentle when taking treats and is a quick learner. He was introduced to another dog and did very well; playful and polite. He also met a cat that was in a cage and showed little to no interest. •

He came to AFHS as a stray with an injury to his front left paw. Because of this, one of his toes had to be amputated. Though his walk is a bit different, Victor couldn’t care less! It doesn’t bother him so he’s hoping it won’t bother you, either. We have included a small clip of Victor walking so you get an idea of what it looks like. •

We truly love Victor and believe what makes him different is what makes him special. •

If you are interested in meeting this happy-go-lucky boy, please stop by during our operating hours.

If you’ve ever considered volunteering at Animal Friends, now is the time to put that plan into action! We have a volunteer orientation coming up this Saturday, June 16th, and we would love to see you there!

Orientation begins at 9am and ends at 11am. We will go over everything you need to know before giving you a quick tour of the facility. Volunteers must be 16 years of age. •

Once you go through the orientation, you are free to set your own schedule and can come any time within volunteer hours (11am-4pm M, T, F, Sa, Su and 1pm-6:30pm W & T) to hang out with our cats and dogs! We only ask that you commit to a minimum of four hours per month. •

See ya Saturday!

Though he truly needs no introduction, meet Bruce! •

This big, handsome fella is a 5 year old Anatolian Shepherd/Mastiff who came to Animal Friends as a stray. He’s the definition of gentle giant: calm, friendly and loves attention. He has been quiet in his cage and loves to go for walks. After his walk, he is content to lay down at your feet (swipe to see Bruce’s unique way of laying down!) oh, and he LOVES belly rubs!

He has not shown aggression towards other dogs, though he was adopted from us before and was returned later that day because he was mounting their dog. Due to this, if you have dogs at home already and are interested in making Bruce a part of your family, we request that you bring them in to meet him prior to adopting. •

Please stop by during our operating hours to meet this majestic gentleman. You won’t regret it!

Radio signal less reliable than it used to be? Miss Roo and her magnificent radar ears can help with that! •

Based on that feature alone, we are left wondering if Roo has some Shepherd in her. But at two years old and only 27lbs, surely whatever she’s mixed with must be on the smaller side. This gal has energy for days! For those searching for a companion to join them on a multitude of outdoor activities, Roo is a truly solid choice. She loves to play with toys and is treat/food driven. She has met a few other dogs during her stay here at AFHS and though overall friendly, she seems a bit nervous, so we recommend bringing your dogs in to meet her if you already have furry friends at home. Roo is tolerant of just about everything, but she seems a little sensitive to having her ears touched. Because young kids may not fully understand boundaries of dogs and unknowingly tug on her ears, we think Roo would do best in a home without them. •

If you are interested in meeting Roo, drop by during our operating hours. She would love to meet you!

We need your help finding a home for Oscar!

Oscar is a 16 year old Shih Tzu and a total gentleman. He came to us as a stray and has been waiting for a family since. Despite his age, Oscar is very spry and his tail is always wagging. He absolutely loves attention and enjoys being held. He has met other dogs during his stay with us and has done well with them. His back end is a bit weak and we suspect arthritis, but he certainly doesn’t let this slow him down. Due to his age and his weakened back legs, we feel he may do best in a home without small children. •

If you feel that you can offer Oscar a loving home for his twilight years, please stop in during our operating hours to meet him. If you are unable to adopt at this time, please help us by sharing this post - it helps us so much!

Still dreaming about the royal wedding and wishing you had your very own piece of Kensington Palace? We’ve got just the thing...

Markle, a two year old shepherd mix, is waiting patiently for her very own prince (or princess, no discriminating here!). She came to Animal Friends as a stray and was never claimed by her owner. She’s a playful gal with loads of energy and even more love to give! She enjoys a nice game of tug-o-war and is driven by treats, so she’s sure to learn quickly at royal etiquette lessons. •

She thrives off of human companionship, but so far she’s been a little afraid of other dogs. She has not shown any aggression, but will bark at their presence and then try to hide behind her human when they approach. If you have dogs at home, we recommend bringing them to meet Markle before taking her back to your palace. •

If you think Markle, the Duchess of Animal Friends Humane Society, is the perfect fit for you and yours, please stop by during our operating hours to meet her!

We will be closed on Monday to spend quality time with our two-legged and four-legged family members. •

Thank you for your support!


Alex, Carlee and Ada recently had a yard sale and instead of keeping the profits for themselves, they selflessly used it to purchase new goodies for our furry residents!

We are so appreciative of your generosity, girls, and so are all of the cats and dogs! Thank you! •
