Rescue/Adoption Candidates

This page offers a look at dogs available from local shelters.  These dogs are not in our possession, but could be if we can get a sponsoring rescue to accept them or if approved by our Adoption Placement Coordinator for adoption through PMFC.  This list will change frequently.  New dogs are added at the bottom.


A 65 pound German Shepherd at Newport Animal Control since Dec 23

History: Picked up as a stray.  Someone had tried to take Delilah in but they found that while she is fine with other dogs in the yard, she becomes aggressively territorial in the house.  She needs either someone experienced in dog training or a single pet home.


At Newport Animal Control

History: Picked up as a stray, she is fearful.  Not adoptable, rescue only.  Unfortunately when the shelter fills up and they need the room this girl will be at the top of the euthanasia list. She needs an angel!

Moo & Layla

At Newport Animal Control since Dec 4

History: Picked up as strays, these bonded siblings are young  Jack Russel Terrier mixes at City of Newport Animal Control.  Until they get to know you, Moo (black and white male) will defend his sister Layla from you.  Layla is laid back and sweet.  Once acquainted, both are friendly.


Currently at Friends Animal Shelter

Maggie is 10 years old. She needs to be the only dog in the home because she will attack another dog unprovoked. But she is great with cats. Power chewer. She has some incontinence issues that may be due to a UTI and is on antibiotics now. She is spayed and up to date on shots. Great with all people, though we haven’t tested her with kids yet.



Parker is being given up because his “mom” hasn’t got the time to care for him and he’s being neglected. He’s a poodle mix who looks much better when he’s been groomed – but that’s been a while.

Parker is not neutered but is housebroken.

Parker is living at home right now, but that’s not really a good place for him.
