Adoption

We are no longer accepting adoption applications online or via fax. If interested in adoption, we ask that you please come by the shelter so you can spend time with the pet, and we can familiarize you with our adoption process.

All pet adoptions include the following:

All adopted pets are surgically sterilized. Any animal that is too young or otherwise unable to be spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter, will go into foster care with the adopter until the surgery is performed. Once the pet is sterilized, the adoption can be finalized.

Please keep in mind, children and four-legged friends should be included in the final decision to adopt.

Adoption applications are “first come, first served.” We cannot place pets on hold. We ask that you are prepared to take your pet home the same day as the adoption however in some cases they may need to stay until spay/neuter surgery is completed.

Be aware: There is no guarantee that you will be approved for the particular pet for which you have applied. We are looking for the best fit for the pet and potential adopter. You may be encouraged to meet a different pet that may be a better fit.

Our counselors and expert staff spend a lot of time helping you make a good decision about bringing home a new family member. We encourage you to be certain about your decision before finalizing your adoption. Adoption fees are non-refundable however an exchange may be honored within the first 30 days if a different pet is a better match.
