Pet Adoptions

We rescue and re-home more than 300 pets each year. 60% from kill shelters and 40% are local relinquishments. We believe that all pets deserve a chance at a loving home. 

There is no appointment necessary to come in and see our adoptable pets, unless they are in foster care. Please come by any time during our normal business hours and a volunteer will be happy to show you around. 

Our available pets can also be viewed on our Facebook page or Petfinder.

Please contact Emily, our Animal Welfare Director for more infomation.

  • Three non-family references must be supplied and will be contacted.  We cannot accept any relatives, including in-laws, as references.

    • Up to date on vaccinations, including rabies.  A letter from your Veterinarian must be supplied for medical exceptions.
    • Spayed or Neutered.  A letter from your Veterinarian must be supplied for medical exceptions.

What to Expect

To continue with the adoption process, we encourage interested adopters to fill out the adoption application.  

 

Upon receipt of your application, an adoption counselor will review and contact you with any questions.  Typically, applications can be processed within a few business days. 

 

Please allow at least 24 hours before contacting us about the status of your application.

 

If you are looking to adopt a dog and already have a dog...

Upon completion & approval of your application, we will require a "meet & greet" between your current dog and your (hopefully) new addition, to ensure everyone gets along.  This will be scheduled with you and be conducted at our adoption center.

We want to hear from you!
