As of June 15, 2021, our adoption process has changed thanks to the lifting restrictions of COVID. Please read our Adoption Process thoroughly.
Any adoptable animals for which we are accepting applications from the public will be on the Available Dogs and Available Cats pages. Please read through our Application & Pre-Approved Adopter Policies carefully.
We encourage anyone interested in adopting a rescued pet CURRENTLY in our care that is looking for a home to submit an application! We do NOT accept applications to adopt pets from us in the future as we cannot save animals in danger of being needlessly euthanized in other shelters until adopters bring home the pets we already promised to find families for.
We appreciate you wanting to bring a rescued pet into your home. In order for us to understand your expectations so we can guide you to best matches, we need you to submit an adoption application.
Social Coordinators (SC) will reach out to introduce themselves VIA TEXT MESSAGE to schedule your Adoption Discussion. The purpose of this is to discuss your family’s needs/wants in a pet and so your SC can offer guidance/education topics for best practices and pet considerations to ensure your expectations can be met with as little stress as possible for both your family and your new pet.
Once you are Pre-Approved, an Adoption Coordinator will discuss available pets with you based on your preferences and provide you with details on each to ensure your expectations match with the individual pets’ personality and behavioral needs. At that time you can commit to adopt or request to meet eligible pets.
Once you have committed to a pet that matches your wants and expectations, you will be scheduled to meet (and hopefully adopt) as soon as possible! We have Adopter Days every Saturday and Adoption by Appointment for special cases.
