Military Mutt of the Month:
Some of our rescue dogs are available for members of the military community to save a life by honorably adopting homeless adult dogs.
A number of our adult shelter dogs, large dogs and special needs animals – those most in need of a loving, forever home – are available for adoption at no cost to our Service Members and Veterans, and Reservists. The medical bill for an adult dog in our care is $375. To help sponsor our military mutt, and allow us to continue to offer these dogs at no cost to service members, please donate here.  Every little bit helps!

Should the animal you sponsor get adopted, the money will be applied to the next sponsored dog.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13


Hi I’m Benjamin!  I love to go on hikes with my buddies in TOC’s Hike with the Pack program.   I am energetic and playful.  I am fixed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and more.  I am about 1 year old.  I am good with other dogs.  I could use some training and leash work but I do love to learn.  



Hi I’m Scout!  I am about 2 years old with great energy.  I am good with cats and other dogs.  I may be a bit strong around young kids but I do love them.  I am fixed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.  I am crate trained, but need some leash work for my manners.  


Hi I’m Gulliver!  I am about 1 year old.  I am good with other dogs, cats and kids.  I am crate trained, and pretty good on a leash.  I do like to walk myself with the leash.  I do need to learn not to jump up on people when I am excited.  I am fixed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
