Please note that our building is currently open by appointment only. Click the button below to submit your application and begin the adoption process. If you have questions about a specific animal, we kindly ask that you submit an application before calling so we can have an informed conversation. 

On the Laptop

1. View Animals & Submit an Application 

The first step in the adoption process is viewing our adoptable animals by clicking the links above. All available animals will have pictures posted. If you don't see a good match at this time, please continue to check the website regularly or visit www.petfinder.com and adoptapet.com to broaden your search to other shelters and rescues. 

If you find an animal, or several, that you would like to meet, please submit an adoption application by clicking the button above. After submission, please allow 48 hours for your application to be reviewed. We will then speak via phone or email to discuss your preferences and to schedule your visit.

2. Meet & Make Preparations

An adoption counselor will schedule a time for you to visit our facility to meet potential pets and get to know their personalities and activity levels. Don't forget to discuss your plans to adopt with any family members, roommates, or landlords. Adopting a pet is a big commitment and everyone in your household should be on board for the journey. 

In most cases, when an adopter is adding an additional dog to their home, we will schedule a dog-to-dog meeting to ensure the pets can safely live with one another.

3. Finalize the Adoption

Once you've found your perfect pet we will complete some brief paperwork and review your pet's medical history. You will receive an adoption bag containing your pet's medical records and a sample bag of food to help with the transition. 

Most adoptions can be completed on the day of your first visit if all preparations have been taken care of and the animal is medically ready. In some circumstances an animal may need more medical care before going home, or the potential adopter may choose to schedule a second visit to ensure the pet is a good match.

4. Welcome Home

Transitioning from a shelter environment to a home setting is a major lifestyle change and it is very common for animals to behave out of character for the first few days, weeks, or even months. Keep in mind that your household will want to exercise patience and understanding during this period. Please talk to our experienced staff or visit our behavior resource page if you have any questions about introducing a new animal into your home.
