Can’t adopt?

As a non-profit organization, we rely on financial gifts from the community. Your donations help us to rescue animals each week, provide essential medical care and behavioral training, and find them forever homes. You can save lives by making a donation. Consider giving today.


Important adoption information

  • To expedite the adoption process, make sure to fulfill all adoption requirements before you visit our shelters.

    • If you are planning to adopt a dog, everyone in your household, including any dogs who currently live with you, must be at the shelter to meet the dog.

    • If you are planning to adopt a cat, rabbit, or small animal, everyone in your household must agree to adopting a new pet.

    • If you rent your home, please bring a copy of your lease agreement so that we can verify the property owner’s pet policy. We cannot adopt to you unless your lease agreement allows for the pet.

  • No holds can be placed on an animal on Friday, August 16 or Saturday, August 17.

  • Refundable $75 canine training deposit will still be required for all dog adoptions.
