What do I do to Adopt?

Our spacious greeting rooms allow yourself, your family, and current pets to interact with your new family member. It is important to us that all pets in the household get along.  Adoption applications can be completed and printed off our website or can be filled out at the shelter. Any adopter who is renting will be required to have a landlord approval. When application is completed you will proceed to the Adoption Agreement and pay your adoption fee. Arrangements will be made for any veterinary services that are needed prior to going home.   Calling ahead to see if a pet is still available is encouraged

** At time of adoption pick up, please bring a leash and collar with you to help ensure your pets safety.
The shelter has a very limited number of leashes and collars available. **
