Meet Joey!

This handsome boy is currently living in a foster home, but his foster family has a prior commitment approaching and they are unable to keep him any longer. They are hoping to find a forever home for him ASAP so that he doesn’t have to return to the shelter. Joey’s foster family reports that he is: House trained, crate trained, loves belly rubs, head scratches, peanut butter and knows sit, stay, down and shake! He is not a fan of cats, so he will need to go to a cat free home, but he was previously housed with other dogs at the shelter and did well.

For more information about Joey, you can contact his foster family directly at

Please keep in mind that pets in our foster program are not on a first come, first served basis. The foster parent(s) may take several applications and meet with different applicants before they decide which would be the best fit for that particular animal.
