Heroes Needed

Animal shelters are extremely stressful places for pets.  This stress can sometimes bring out behaviors we wouldn't normally see when the pet is home in a familiar, comfortable environment. Thier needs just cannot be met in a shelter environment because a shelter is not a home, no matter how nice the facility may be. ACC is having difficulty finding placement for some dogs we believe can be successful in a home with the right support and behavior modification, but who do not qualify for public adoption. Warehousing dogs who are deteriorating to the point of self-harm and have become a danger to themselves or others is not the answer.

So, we are asking the community for help. The dogs on this page desperately need a place to go outside the shelter, with someone who understands their challenges and the support they will need to recover and find success as family pets. If you are looking for dogs with the greatest need for a home, please consider the urgent cases on this page.

Status updates for previous emergency placement dogs can be found here.
