Our goal is to facilitate the best match for you and your new canine or feline best friend. During the adoption counseling process we will ask questions about your previous animal experience, your lifestyle, and your expectations for a new pet, in order to try to help you find the animal of your dreams.



If you find an animal that you are interested in adopting, please complete a survey/application. If you are unsure which animal you would like to adopt, that is fine, simply leave that portion blank or note that you would like to choose from available pets.  Our wonderful staff and volunteers will assist you in the process!

Once we receive the application, you will be contacted via email or phone to let you know the next steps and set up a visitation appointments.  Plan on at least one hour for the full adoption process in order to give enough time for a visit, discussion with an adoption counselor, and adoption paperwork.

If you are flexible in the animal you would like to adopt consider setting up a visit during one of our open appointment slots.  At the time of your appointment, you will be able to visit and adopt animals that do not already have applications as of that morning. Please note that with this option there may not be any animals that can go home with you the day that you visit, due to other applications.  If you are interested in a specific animal on our website, the best route its to apply for that animal and wait for our call. 

The Animal Shelter is open for visitations by appointment  Sun, Mon, Tues, Thurs, Sat.  The shelter is open on Friday's for walk-ins from 12 - 4pm.  We continue to manage the numbers of individuals in our kennels on Fridays, so if it is busy there may be a wait.  Our kennels and visitation rooms are narrow so we strongly encourage continuing to mask during your visit.
