To meet Tadpole, please email

Tadpole is a handsome dude who is looking for his forever home. He recently got to go on a sleepover with one of our amazing volunteers. The volunteer reports the following: He's a happy and energetic dog that loves to sniff his way down the trail. He slept well in a crate and didn't have any accidents in the house. He likes to play tug-of-war. He played well with the older children in the home. Inside the house, Tadpole didn't bark and loved to chew on a bone. He is reported to be dog friendly too! If you would like to meet Tadpole, please bring your family and any other dogs in the home for a meet.
