Animal Browse

Please browse our available hounds.  Clicking on each picture will open up the web page for each hound.  Before you apply to adopt, please take the time to visit our adoption information page here

If you already know which hound you want to adopt... go straight to the adoption application form you will find on this page.  The form allows you the option to say which hound you are interested in, or (if they don't appear in the drop down choices) tell us in one of the comment fields. 

NOTE - there may be multiple applications for the same dog. Our adoption liaison officer will consider all applications and make the best match possible . We don't place dogs 'first come, first served'. Yours may be the best application! And if not, we know there will be another hound that is the right match.

If you haven't yet found the hound whose photo hits the spot... still fill in the application.  The information you can tell us will help our adoption coordinator suggest the best fit for you before they even get to the website.  Thank you SO MUCH for choosing to adopt - you won't regret it!!
