If you are looking for a dog who absolutely loves people and playing catch…look no further! Gemma is a 2-4 year old lab mix who loves to go for walks, cuddling and playing with toys…especially a tennis ball! This 65 lb love bug tends to think she’s a lap dog and loves to give kisses! Gemma has been professionally trained and has mastered healing, staying, placing and many other commands. Her forever family will have free access to her trainers for life. She would love to be part of a family where she could take part of their daily activities and whom she could spend a lot of time with.

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $200.
