Skip is available for adoption from Friendship APL.



Skip is truly a miracle. When his mother was pregnant with him, she was shot by police. Skip was the only puppy in that litter to survive, and now as a result has a neurological condition, making him wobble when he walks. He can only go short distances, but according to a volunteer who loves him dearly, “he really enjoys being outside, having belly rubs, and will be a great companion for someone that will have lots of patience, and who will spend time with him.” Skip’s owner recently passed away, and now this 6 year old Boxer mix finds himself at Friendship. Skip would do best in a quiet home, with children over the age of 12. If other dogs are present in the home, they should only be female. Please help this special boy find a safe, patient, loving home to call his own.

Sissy is available for adoption from Friendship APL.



Sweet Sissy’s previous owners adopted her opting out of the meet and greet with their current dog. When they got home, their dog did not like her, so they chose to return her. Humane officers went to the home and found poor Sissy thin and tied outside. The owners said they had called us wanting to return her because she jumped on their children. Sissy will need some basic training. She is looking for a loving family who will give her kindness, patience, and the unconditional love that she deserves. Trust us, she is worth it!

Darla and Daisy is available for adoption from Friendship APL.


Daisy & Darla

Daisy and Darla were part of a group of dogs the Friendship Humane Officer confiscated from a home. They were not well cared for or socialized. They have been at the shelter for several months now gaining the trust of the staff and volunteers. They are super sweet dogs and not aggressive at all. They need to continue to gain confidence and trust. Older kids are recommended for these two dogs. They do not seem to be bothered by other dogs. It will be a slow process, but Daisy and Darla are ready to find out what a real loving home is supposed to be like. If you’re willing to work with either dog, they will give you a lifetime of loyalty and love. They are very bonded, but can be adopted separately.
