Shelter Puppies was founded in 2010 by Karen Lutz and Barb Darbey with the idea that puppies will have a better chance at finding a forever home if they are vetted, spayed/neutered, and already have some obedience training.
Puppies are rescued from private homes, shelters, and the local dog pound, and provided with veterinary care, spay/neuter, and beginning obedience training, then placed in a forever home.
Karen oversees puppy training, making sure each puppy is ready to go to it’s forever home.
The very first litter of puppies completed training in March 2011. Pictured from left: Rosie, Cole, Tigger, Max, Gator, and Tasha. Missing from the photo: Nike.
