A 'long-stay' is any animal that has been at the shelter for six months or more. When you think of how short many dog's lifespans are, that many months really takes a toll on a dogs quality of life.

Whether they are older, and 'undesirable' color, or any other reason, many dogs go unnoticed in the shelter despite their potential to be amazing pets.

All of the dogs listed below are dog friendly, likely to be easy to potty train (if they aren't already), up to date on vaccines, fixed, have amazing personalities, and so much more. The most important thing is that they deserve a loving home and family to spend the rest of their lives with.

If you or someone you know is considering getting a dog, please consider one of these pups or another long-stay dog at a local rescue.

Even if you aren't able to adopt, you can go to the shelter and pick up one of these pups for a 'doggy day out' so they get to spend some time outside of the shelter for a change.

This list and photos were posted by the shelter on March 2nd, 2023, so some of these dogs might've been adopted by the time you see this. Please contact the shelter directly to check if the dog you are interested is still available.
