Caramel's Story

Want a sweet treat? Look no further than Caramel! She is a a Catahoula Leopard dog mix who is looking for an owner who loves to run or walk daily to help him expel some of her excess energy! When she warms up, she will be your best buddy for life! But she is not the right dog for most people. She prefers home with adults and no other pets so that she can be the center of attention. 

Do you have a home with a yard? Caramel would love a moderately active home where she can come and go on walks without interacting with other dogs or strangers. She would thrive in the hands of an experienced and dedicated owner and strong handler who will continue training.

  • Squeak! Squeak! I love Squeaky chew toys!
  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all
  • I’m a people person! 
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day
  • I love to play and wrestle with other doggie friends


  • I’d love to find an adults-only home





Why Foster?

There are many animals that need us today. Each foster family allow us to save more homeless pets by opening their home to a pet or litter in need of love and care for a few weeks. When we are able to send a pet or litter to foster, it frees up space in our Medical Center to bring in more pets in need.

Last year, our foster families took in 3,467 pets. Some needed a peaceful place to recover from illness or injury. Puppies and kittens just needed a bit of time in a home environment with good socialization so they could grow big enough to have their spay/neuter surgery before adoption. Other pets needed a calm and relaxing break from the stress of shelter life.

Consider joining them in lifesaving. Sign up to become a foster today.
