Our Adoptable Dogs

All of our dogs are up to date on vaccines, given dewormer, microchipped, heartworm tested, spayed/neutered, kept on Heartgard Plus & Frontline Plus monthly and are all fed Nature’s Select dog food. If you need more information on a particular dog please call or e-mail. Thank You!

If you are looking for a particular dog and perhaps do not see it here, please call, as we are always taking in new dogs and perhaps the one you want just hasn’t made it to the website yet.

We do not have a history on most of the animals up for adoption since we rescue them Animal Control and they are usually labeled as strays.  We can only tell you their behavior since they have been with us.  We do not know the specific breeds of each dog or the exact ages.  Once again, because they are rescued we have to guess as to what they MAY be a mix of and what age they appear to be.

DOGS ARE SOCIAL ANIMALS AND LOVE TO BE TOGETHER. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING ADOPTING TWO DOGS, WE CAN LET YOU KNOW WHO THEIR ‘BUDDY’ HAS BEEN WHILE AT AHS.

Directions to the Shelter

Please click on the picture of the dog that you are interested in to view their specific adoption date and adoption donation. 

Not all of the dogs are available for viewing or adoption right away so make sure to plan to come out when the dog you are interested in is available. 

We open at 9am Saturday mornings and we will be helping adoptions in the order of when they submitted an approved application to us. There will be a sign in sheet on the front door at 8:30 am so that we can pull applications for the people that arrive between 8:30-9am. Again the order in which adoptions will come in to the shelter to see any adoptable dogs or cats first thing on Saturday mornings will be as to when the application was submitted to Animal House Shelter so there is no need to come to the shelter any earlier than 8:30 to sign in. This will be the procedure for people that arrive between 8:30-9am.

After 9am on Saturdays mornings it will be first come, first serve after we help all of the adoptions that signed in between 8:30-9am. Most people submit general applications to us which do not specify a name or a particular pet they are interested in so there is no way for us to know until people arrive Saturday morning at 8:30 how many people are interested in a particular litter, puppy, kitten, cat or adult dog. We always have around 300 dogs & cats available for adoption and the adoption counselors will help you to find the right companion for your family! We look forward to meeting you!

We start helping adoptions at 9 am on Saturdays and 11 am Sundays through Fridays.  Please call us at 847-961-5541 if you have any questions!
