courtesy posts

Courtesy post animals are NOT Mountains’ Humane Society animals. Mountains’ Humane Society is not liable for anything that may occur from the adoption of a courtesy post animal. The adoptions that come from courtesy posts are between the owner and adopter. Mountains’ Humane Society is not responsible for spay/neuter, any and all medical, behavior issues, etc. Mountains’ Humane Society accepts no liability, financial or legal responsibility for courtesy post animals. It is the adopters obligation to discuss the animals temperament and health with the owner. 

A courtesy post is a way that we assist people in our community that need to re-home their animal. We will also try to help by networking to other rescues and give the owner places to contact as well. In order for us to courtesy post a pet we MUST have the following:

  • Four or more good clear pictures (body shot, front view, face, etc.)
  • Video of animal proving that they get along with other animals. If re-homing a dog, we need video with another dog that doesn’t live in the same house.
  • All information on animal (name, age, weight, if spayed/neutered, if vaccinated, if good with other animals, if good with kids, if house trained, etc.)
  • Bio of animals personality 
  • Name of owner and contact phone number
  • What kind of home do you want for your animal (fenced yard, no kids, a quiet home, active home, no other animals, etc.)
  • Any bad behaviors or warnings.

Along with posting your animal here, we will also post on our Facebook page and we may choose to post your pet on Petfinder and Adopt A Pet. We may offer you the choice for any potential adopters to fill out a courtesy post application and screen them for you to help you ensure that your pet goes to a safe loving home. There is no cost to you, but donations are always welcome. 

It is the adopter’s responsibility to ask owner any questions and information regarding the animal. It is also the adopter’s responsibility to get any medical records from owner. 

We highly recommend that the owner write up a basic contract between owner and new adoptive owner regarding the adoption. Basically just stating that you are adopting said animal to name of new adopter, date, description of animal and that if new adopter can no longer keep animal, they must return them to you and signature of new adopter. 

*** We do not support breeding and will not courtesy post breeders. We do not allow the sale or the exchange of any money for any of the courtesy posting animals. Please do not give owner any money for the adoption of a courtesy post animal, it is illegal without a license to sell an animal. 

If you have found our services to be of assistance, please donate to Mountains’ Humane Society.


We love dogs with underbites! ❤️

Gizmos dad passed away and his mom works 12-14 hour days. He isn’t used to being left alone that long and she wants a better life for him and has asked us to help.

He is 6 years old, weighs 20 lbs., neutered, house trained and pee pad trained and will be up to date on shots. He is good with cats and small to medium sized dogs.

Gizmo is a little shy at first but warms up once he knows you.

Gizmo loves going on walks, cuddling and playing with his toys. Since he is used to being with his dad all the time he has had some separation anxiety. He would do best in a home where someone was there more often or that works from home. Also, he seems to get scared around toddlers and children, but a home with older kids is ok.

So if you are looking for a little buddy and Gizmo seems like your guy, please fill out our K9 Courtesy Post Application from our website


This stunning guy is looking for a new home. His family is not able to provide him with the care he needs any longer. They are heartbroken, but want was is best for him. Please no negative comments.

Axle is a 6 year old Great Dane, up to date on vaccines except is due for rabies, will be getting neutered and is housetrained. He is not compatible with cats, but is great with other submissive dogs. If a dog is aggressive or has an alpha personality, he will not do well.

Axle is a calm gentle dog who is very loving, affectionate and adores spending time with his humans. He walks well on a leash and enjoys his walks. He needs a secure fenced in yard to be able to go out in and be safe.

Experience with his breed is also required along with financial stability to be able to care for him.
If you are interested in adopting Axle, please fill out our Courtesy Post K9 Adoption Application on our website.
