COVID-19 Protocol as of 5/18/2020

The Animal Shelter is closed for visitation at this time.  We continue to operate by appointment and offer phone assistance.

Thank you for helping us keep our staff, volunteers and members of the public safe and healthy during this time. 

If you are interested in adopting an animal, we encourage you to fill out an online application. We plan to offer over the phone adoption counseling and will move forward with setting up an appointment to complete the adoption and pick up your new pet. Adoptable animals can be viewed here.

We understand the importance of maintaining as many of our services as possible and are currently able to assist with lost and found animals. Photos and other information can be sent to us directly at

At this time our animal control officers are working at full operation. 

As always, we are grateful for your continued support during such trying times.
