Update Us!


If you have recently adopted from SLS and are a first time pet owner- or if you just gained an SLS dog as a new member of your happy pack, we would love an update! We are always curious about how our dogs are doing in their new homes or what each puppy looks like now.

If you would like to keep us in the loop and show off your dog, we encourage you to fill out the Pupdate form and send us a picture! Maybe your dog will make our front page!

If you can’t find what you are looking for, please feel free to reach out to us at and we will do our best to help.
