Are you looking for a sweet-and-spicy girl to be your new sidekick? Meet Kayla! Kayla is a people-lover at heart and loves to shower her favorite humans with kisses and affection. This extroverted gal wiggles her little body all over the place when she meets new people and is just excited to be included in the party.

As much as Kayla loves to cuddle on the couch with you while you catch up on your favorite shows, she also loves to ZOOM! She'll whip her tail around like crazy when she finds a toy she likes and will play fetch with you until the sun comes up. Kayla is also extremely smart and loves to show off her skills to anyone who asks. She picks up new commands quickly but already knows quite a lot of them, like "sit," "shake," "down," "kiss," and go to "place."

Sometimes Kayla's zest for life and people can be a little too much for certain environments so she would do best in a home with older kids and will need a set-up where she can have her zoomies and outside playtime away from other furry friends. Kayla needs a quiet, fenced-in backyard so she can relax by herself.

Kayla is a special, warmhearted girl who has so much love to give and is looking for the right home to thrive in. She'll want to be your friend the second she meets you! Why not give her a chance to win you over?

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
