If you are planning on adopting, here are a few facts and rants, that hold true on all of our available dogs:

  • We do not have a brick and mortar shelter.

    • Therefore we ask that you have an approved application before meeting with the pups. 

    • These guys will remain in boarding with a vets office due to extended care.

    • We will be interrupting their practice while individuals are meeting with them. 

  • Our application is electronic and equivalent to 4 pages long. 

  • We screen all applications.

  • We ask that all your current animals are spayed and neutered, for overpopulation and health reasons.

  • Our adoption fee for dogs is $85, you will also be asked to purchase heartworm preventative.

  • Our staff are all volunteers and work full time jobs, please be patient with us. 

  • These guys will not be house broke, due to the living conditions they were in.  You will have to be patient and understanding with them.

  • All pups will require regular professional grooming due to their breeds.  

The Mill Pups: 

All have been adopted

Sugar Boo is one of the critical cases.   She is heartworm positive.  Suffers from severe hip displysia, damaged back knees and has a wobble on her back legs (but that doesn't slow her down).  
She had multiple rotten teeth.   She will be undergoing a slow heartworm treatment after recovery from teeth extraction & spay.  She is a sweet girl and is a 5 year old Yorkie-Poo.  SugarBoo was adopted February '19
