Meet Our Featured Pet, Marley!

MarleyMarley is near and dear to our hearts. This handsome, friendly, social boy has been at the shelter for over a year. Some dogs suffer from such a long stay in a kennel environment but, though Marley deserves so much more, he's actually improved so much from the time he's spent with staff and volunteers. He has learned to walk better on leash and he's become more bonded and attentive to his human companions. He would do best in a dog-experienced adult household that's willing to further teach him manners. That said, we believe he's worth every second of those efforts. If you would like to learn more about Marley, please contact the shelter
