  2. *SENIOR ALERT*
    *VOLUNTEER FAVORITE* A1490106 SHADOW
    To watch a video of this sweet and soulful senior, please click here:http://youtu.be/yFR0X8r6dtE


    Shadow is somewhat of a mystery dog and it’s a mystery we’d like to close the case on…by finding her a forever home! This CALM 52-pound SPAYED 10 year-old female German Shepherd mix has a mostly black body with the beautiful white coloring old age tends to bring. Her SOULFUL brown eyes and salt-and-pepper face are quite mesmerizing, hiding the fact that she has a slight dent on the top right side of her head. (There were no medical notes about it.) Despite being an OWNER SURRENDER, we sadly have no information on Shadow’s past. Why anyone would give up this sweet girl up is a total mystery to us! The only thing not completely amazing about Shadow is that she has a slightly stiff gait. But what 10-year old doesn’t have a little joint pain? She doesn’t seem to be too bothered by it and walked very gently on her leash. We’re hoping Shadow can live out the rest of her years on a comfy bed. Here at the shelter she’s a little withdrawn and shy at first, but she quickly opens up to volunteers who get to know her, wagging her white-tipped tail and asking for belly rubs. Shadow didn’t seem bothered by the other dogs in the yard, so we think she might do well in a home where she shares the attention. Sweet Shadow doesn’t need much to make her happy – a little walk, a little play, and lots of love! The shelter is no place for a mature dog like Shadow, and she’s been here since July 2nd. Please come rescue or adopt this sweetheart today! All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

    To view a video of this amazing fellow please visit:http://youtu.be/f5drdpRxL3U


    Meet Vance! This 5 year old, 46 pound NEUTERED male brown and white Staffordshire Terrier is just about as sweet as they come. This guy may be small on size but he is BIG on personality. During our photo shoot, Vance was perfectly comfortable being toted around like a baby. Vance has a puppy-like exuberance and was not stingy with the kisses he showered our volunteers with. Vance had a POSSIBLE OWNER but no one came to claim him, and he has been waiting for someone to come for him since March 21st. Vance is such a cute guy with adorable markings and a white tipped tail. Vance seems good on a leash and non-reactive to other dogs so we think he would fit in just great with just about any family. If you are looking for a super friendly and loving guy with personality plus, then Vance is the perfect guy for you. Since he is neutered he can go home with you TODAY, so please rush down to the shelter and bring this amazing guy home! All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

During our photo shoot, Wiley saw another dog through the fence and she seemed just as happy as can be to greet her fellow canine. And while we are pretty sure that whoever named this sweet girl was thinking coyote, just about the only thing coyote like about her is that we’re pretty sure she would be thrilled to join your pack! If you are looking for a sweet, young and unique girl please come and meet Wiley today! She can go home with you IMMEDIATELY! Wiley has been at the shelter since May 6, 2014. All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

  5. A0589705 TOMMY

    NOW RESCUE ONLY! Tommy got scared of the blow dryer during grooming and bit the groomers elbow. Please, can’t we find a rescue to take him due to this unfortunate turn of events?

    *SENIOR ALERT* *VOLUNTEER FAVORITE* 

    To watch a video of this sweetie, click here:http://youtu.be/URpJHbUc29Y


    Where do we begin? Tommy is just the greatest guy! At 10 years old and only 55 lbs Tommy is the perfect dog for just about any home. He’s mellow and sweet and doesn’t require a lot of activity besides a daily walk. He’d be the perfect apartment dweller! Tommy is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix with the prettiest red coat and white markings. He was loving being out of his kennel on our photo shoot and soaking up all the affection he could get from his handler. He seems great around other dogs and loves people- what more can you ask for? Tommy came in as an OWNER SURRENDER when his owners lost their home. Owners say he’s great with dogs, cats, and kids. We can’t imagine why anyone would want to give this guy up! He’s been at the shelter since April 15 and would love to find his new forever home to spend his golden years in. Come down to the shelter and fall in love with Tommy today. All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

  6. A1467858 BO DIDDLEY

    To Watch a video of this BIg Hunk of Burning Love, please click here: http://youtu.be/VUVAKKxpyJs


    BO DIDDLEY is a big, strong, handsome, SUPER LOVE Machine and everyone who meets him just can’t getenough of! At 85 pounds, this 3-year-old male, American Pit Bull Terrier is a beefy hunk of BRINDLE love. He is solid and strong on the outside, but on the inside, his heart is as soft as a marshmallow!! His brown and white brindle coat makes him look quite dapper, and it just seems to go so well with his CALM DEMEANOR. If you watch his video, it is clear why Bo Diddley is a VOLUNTEER FAVORITE. He wants nothing more than to lay around and have his velvety-smooth belly rubbed and give big wet kisses in return. He was very non-reactive to other dogs…could not be the least bit bothered as he has more important things to think about, like how to get more LOVE! He is also highly treat motivated, so he will be very EASY TO TRAIN. He was very good on his leash, but he is a big brawny guy and will need someone strong to handle him. Most of all, Bo D. was very respectful to humans as well as the other dogs. This GENTLEMAN has been at the shelter since April 2, 2014, and we just know whoever takes him home will fall as in love with him as we have. All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

    Isabell is the bee’s knees! We just fell in love with this girl’s endearingly crooked little face. Isabell is a female, tan and white Pit Bull Terrier. She is 5 years old and weighs the perfect 50 pounds. In fact, everything about Isabell is perfect. She is calm, gentle and very affectionate. Plus she is cute as a button. Isabell tends to be a little on the shy side and really looks to connect with her handler. Her handler on the photo shoot fell in love with her and says she walks like the perfect lady on leash. Isabell seems to be good with other dogs. Another dog on the shoot walked by her and was very worked up but Isabell took it all in stride. We would love to see Isabell land in a home or with a rescue that can give her everything she deserves. She came into the shelter as a stray on March 23rd, 2014. Please come meet her today! All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

  8. A1468811 ROCKY

    *BLUE MEDICAL ALERT- demodex mange* 100% sweetheart

    To watch a video of ROCKY the ROCK STAR, click here:http://youtu.be/88_7GRyA2RQ
    When a dog walks out into the yard, and everyone stops to ooh and ahh over him, you know you have something special. That was the case at our photoshoot with ROCKY, a 4-year-old white, male BOXER. ROCKY was an instant rock star that has that look and sparkling personality that make people stop and take notice. It’s just incredible that he is an OWNER SURRENDER, whose owner had too many dogs!! And he gave this guy up?? He immediately became a VOLUNTEER FAVORITE when the handler went to get him from his kennel and he began dancing and twirling with excitement! Once in the yard, this 47-pound “lapdog” crawled right onto the lap of his handler and began giving non-stop kisses! Not only does this boy love human interaction, but he also seems very playful toward the other dogs and was completely non-reactive walking nicely on his leash through the kennels. What more can we say? He is pretty perfect and a SUPER SWEET dog. Rocky has been in the shelter since April 6, 2014 so please come in and see for yourself what a SUPERSTAR dog he is! All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

  9. A1468158 HENRY

    See how gentle Henry is at: http://youtu.be/bWtNHdTE7zQ
    Henry, a sweet 8-year old, 75-lb black male Pit Bull, has a sad story. This senior boy appears to have been well taken care of in his former home, until his previous owner passed away and Henry had to come to the shelter (on April 4th). According to Henry’s file, he was with his owner for 5 years and the notes say he is dog, cat, and kid friendly. It breaks our hearts that Henry knows what love and a home is, and is confused why he is at the shelter - he looks so sad when you walk by his kennel. Henry is such a gem! He was so happy to get out into the yard with one of our volunteers. He is great on a leash and we assume he is house broken. He is gentle, mild tempered and has great manners. He seems good with other dogs as well. We’d love to see Henry go to another loving, forever home. Please some meet Henry today! All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).

  10.  A1463869 BYRON


    To view Byron’s video go to: http://youtu.be/YVCCn9nFjeg
    Say hello to Byron, a 3 year old, 93 pound male red American Pit Bull terrier. Byron is a BIG boy with beautiful light green eyes and the cutest white paws we’ve ever seen. Byron will be best suited for an experienced and strong owner since he is such a big and powerful guy. Byron would greatly benefit from some training. We think that he would be fine around other dogs as he was not bothered by them during our photo shoot. This big, powerful boy needs someone willing to put in the time and energy to teaching him the ways of the world. If you are looking for someone to explore the hiking trails with this summer or go for runs on the beach, Byron might just be the guy for you! Byron has been in the shelter since March 17th and would love to be in his new home soon! All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).
