Stanley is a year old German Shepherd mix. He’s not too big at 44 lbs. He has recently learned to swim! How else can you cool off when it’s 90 plus degrees outside ?
Stanley loves kids! He also loves other dogs to frolic with. He’s not really sure but he may not like cats. He’s learning to play catch ,along with other games. He walks well on a leash. He also loves to cuddle. He can’t resist a good belly rub either!
He is also housebroken ! What more could you want?
Fill out a application to meet and adopt Stanley the Swimmer!

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.


  • Puppy and Adult dog adoption fees are variable.
