Our Adoption Requirements:

We require that your current/past pets are taken yearly to the vet for vaccinations, and dogs are on a monthly heartworm preventative 12 months out of the year. We do not approve applications based on a first-come-first-serve basis, we choose based on what home is going to be best suited for each animal.

Our Adoption Process

You may be surprised to find that adopting a pet is a more involved process than you’d imagined. Our intent is not to frustrate you. Rather, everything we do is in the best interest of the pets in our care. Our goal is to give them the best possible chance of finding a permanent, safe, and loving home that meets their individual needs, and to help you to find your perfect match. Our adoption policies are based on our experience and the experience of many other pet adoption organizations.

Our No-Kill Policy

We care for those who are cast aside, forgotten, lost, sick, or injured. We do not euthanize pets for space at our shelter. Once an animal enters our care, they are with us until they are adopted, or until they pass away. Pets are examined by a veterinarian upon arrival and treated for any medical problems they may have while at our shelter.


Our Shelter

Opened in 1971, we keep our emphasis on comfort and cleanliness for the dogs and cats waiting to find homes. We also provide an accommodating environment for you to get to know our pets.

Windows let in sunshine. Most of our cats do not live in cages – they are free to lounge and play in rooms filled with cat furniture and toys. Our dogs have indoor/outdoor dog kennels with play yards. They receive enrichment at night to help keep their minds sharp and their boredom down.

Adoption Resources

Whether this is your first time adopting a companion or your a seasoned pet professional, we have some resources to help you and your pet.

Thinking About Adopting a Cat?

MEOW! Look at those cute whiskers! To dog people, taking on a cat seems like no big deal – no house training, numerous daily walks or obedience classes. But if you are a novice at animal care-taking, hair on the furniture, paw prints on countertops and kitty games at 3 A.M. — not to mention litter box training and daily maintenance — can take some getting used to. Here is an article from Pet Finder that goes over how to decide which feline friend is right for you.

Tips for Bringing Home a Rescue Dog

Dogs truly make the best of friends. If you care for them right, you will have a loyal companion. While shelter dogs come from various backgrounds and experiences, they all share one important fact: they are dogs, and the dog you choose needs to be understood and treated as such. Just like us, dogs need order and leadership. They seek structure, structure which you must provide. Your dog needs to know that you that you have a set of house rules. This makes the transition from the shelter to your home easier, faster and more rewarding. View this list of tips from Adopt a Pet all about adopting rescue or shelter dogs.
