Please note that at this time, we have a limited number of animals in our shelter due to the support of our community to find forever families and foster homes. It is our goal to continue responding to shelters that require our assistance to ensure no animals are euthanized due to space. With this is in mind, the animals available for adoption will fluctuate and change on a daily basis. Please continue to watch our “Dogs for Adoption”“Cats for Adoption”, and our Facebook Page for animals available for adoption.

What to bring when adopting

When visiting our shelter with the intent of adoption, there are a few suggested things to bring with you:

  • If you rent, please bring either the paperwork that states it is ok for you to have a pet, or the information for us to contact your landlord.
  • If you are interested in adopting and already have pets at home, please bring your vet records that show your pet is up-to-date on their vaccines (especially on the weekends) or the information for us to contact your veterinarian.
  • When adopting a dog, we will require that you complete a meet and greet with your existing dog(s). We do not complete meet and greets with cats.
  • Please have your drivers license with you at time of adoption.
  • Free time! When adopting, please plan to stay for at least an hour and a half. Depending on the circumstances, adoptions can take more or less time. Especially on the weekends, our busiest time of adoptions, the process may take more time.
