Featured Pet: Olani

Meet Olani!

Olani is a very sweet 1.5 year old female that appears to be a cattledog with maybe some boxer  or catahoula mixed in. She loves loves loves all people and is crate trained and uses a dog door without fail! She loves to go for walks and just trots along nicely. We suspect that she would love an active family that would play with her in the yard and take her for long walks:) She adores children and is very gentle with them. We have yet to see her jump. She would make a great only dog as she is far more interested in people than other dogs:) She loves riding in the car and is the perfect passenger, she just lays down and takes a nap!

The adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses incurred by the Rescue.

If you want to meet him, please fill out an online application at and we will contact you so that you can meet this handsome guy.

Education: How hot is too hot to leave your dog in the car?

It’s officially time to leave Fido at home when you’re out running errands. If you see a dog left in a car,  call 911 immediately; every minute counts.
