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. For more information on things to consider prior to adoption and what to expect after adoption, check out the free e-book "Adopting a Shelter Dog".

You can view adoptable animals online, at the shelter or at one of our adoption events. Once you find an animal that you are interested in adopting, please complete a survey/application (for animals other than cats and dogs, please use the cat application).

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.
