If you are interested in a specific dog we encourage you to drop off your application at the shelter. If you are submitting a request for a type of dog that we currently do not have in the shelter (breed, temperament) please still submit a form and we will store your information in our database and contact you when a dog comes into the shelter that we feel would be a good match.


Please note that all of our dogs will be spayed or neutered upon leaving the shelter and this is non-negotiable. We at the MHS believe very strongly in not increasing the already soaring pet population.


Look into these eyes, and  tell me that you can hurt her... You tell me that you would allow yourself as a human being to starve her, look past her as she walks down the street, disregard the bones sticking out of her, the way she walks... how her backbone is sticking out..... Tell me that you as an officer of the law, would look at this dog and not care!! not contact the appropriate people to assist... leave it with the person who has her.... and sleep at night!!

Bells is a sweet girl... an absolute doll! why she was treated in this manner just really hurts! Of course she was bred for her puppies. When i asked why the $$ made on this dog was not used to assist in caring for the mom,† i was told nothing useful. Only trying to find a way out of the confrontation with me that was taking place!
