Please note: We do our best to respond to every application, but we are all volunteers. Thank you for your understanding.

**SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: After much consideration, the decision has been made to fully move Gray Face Acres to where the founder is now located in Idaho. We are no longer taking in new dogs in the DC area. We stay committed to the dogs still in our care and will make sure all east coast dogs are adopted or otherwise provided for, after which GFA will no longer have a presence on the east coast.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of our supporters, donors, volunteers, and fosters for helping us save, take care of, and find forever homes for so many dogs!**

Mylo, 10 yr old male Bichon/Jack Russell Terrier mix, 21 lbs

Adoption Fee $350

Mylo is loving and friendly and still has a good amount of energy for his age and is quite agile! He has some anxiety and needs a special home that will give him plenty of time and space to adjust to a new home. He needs someone who will be patient with him but will also be a confident leader to help him feel secure. He benefits from structure and boundaries and knowing what is expected of him. He is generally friendly with other dogs but would do best as the only dog in the home. He needs a home without kids.

He loves affection and attention and will nudge his humans for pets and belly rubs. He also loves going on walks and playing with toys. He is house trained and crate trained.

Mylo was surrendered to us when his elderly owner became too ill to continue to care for him. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.



Abe, 8 yr old male chihuahua mix, 11 lbs

Available for adoption through Canines & Kitties Rescue

Hi, I’m Abe! I’ve just been rescued from the shelter and I’m settling into my foster home. I’m a very sweet gentleman. I get along well with the other dogs in my foster home. My favorite activity is cuddling! I love laying on laps or right up against anyone who will love me. I’m a teeny fella and I love curling up in blankets. In fact, it’s a requirement that you give me lots of cozy blankets if you adopt me! I am doing well with my housetraining and I’m good boy inside the home. I’m the total package! If you are looking for the perfect lap dog that is calm and sweet and quiet, I’m the one!

Tucker, 8 yr old male terrier mix, 18 lbs

Available for adoption through HART

Tucker loves lying outside in the sun, being near his human, getting head and butt scratches, and occasionally playing with toys. He is fine living with other dogs that give him space and he tested well with cats. He is good in his crate and will go in it for meals and bedtime. He startles easily and needs someone that will take the time to understand him.
