Name: Gilley
Age: 5 
years old
Animal ID: 
Pittie Mix
Spayed Female
Kennel 313

Gilley is our current longest stay dog at the shelter. She’s been with us for over 380 days without a single night away. And why? Well, we’re not really sure because she’s a doll! She was so happy when she got a chance to go on an outing with volunteer Peggy. Here’s what Peggy had to say:

“Our first outing to the park was a true joy. I’ve taken other dogs I’ve loved (now adopted) there, and they sometimes got pretty distracted. Not our Gilley! She was calm when she saw other dogs, running/playing kids, geese, a new friend in a wheelchair, food trailers, fountains, whatever. You name it, she rolled with it. She was happy to be a team of two and it made for a fun day. She also withstood a bath afterward. Love this girl!”


Come meet our Gilley girl and give her a chance. You might just fall for her too!

Meet your new sidekick, Bradley! He is so enthusiastic about, well, everything!


Bradley doesn’t want to watch the world go by; he wants to get out and go with it! He loves to go for car rides and seeks new adventures. He is thrilled to go walking or hiking, likes to run around and play in the yard, and finds games (especially games involving treats!) to be just his thing. His favorite pastimes are rolling in the tall, cool grass while making little snorting noises or splashing about in a baby pool to cool off in this blazing heat. These are his ideas of heaven on earth!
Don’t let that goofy personality fool you, though! Bradley has gone on overnights with a shelter volunteer and has been a fantastic house guest! He is extremely house-trained, respects items that are not his, and is hands down the best little snuggler at bedtime. And if that’s not enough, Bradley is GREAT with kids! He truly thrives outside of the stressful shelter environment and just wants a family in which he can play with people and feel loved, wanted, and needed.

Bradley is a participant with AAC partner group, Dogs Out Loud.  He comes with a fantastic adoption package!

  • A free take-home visit
  • Free post-adoption visits as needed
  • A free spot in our group class
  • A $100 training scholarship to one of our preferred, local trainers (once he graduates our class)
  • Free support for the life of the relationship with his new family

If you are looking for a new buddy to keep you company and remind you that life is a grand adventure that should be enjoyed, email DOL at  or come in and meet him in kennel 217!

It’s also kittypalooza this Saturday!
