Adopt a Dog!

Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog from Liberty Humane Society. Many of our available dogs are listed below, however we have many more at the shelter waiting for loving homes.

You will also notice that some animals have “Foster” listed next to their names. These animals are up for adoption, however, they reside in a home with an LHS volunteer instead of at the shelter. If you are interested in meeting any of these animals, please send an email to the foster parent’s address which is included in the dog or cat’s page. If one is not listed, then please send an email to to be put in touch with the LHS adoption counselors.

If you would like to adopt a Liberty Dog, please fill out a dog application (below).
