How To Adopt a Pet
Congratulations on taking the first step towards adoption! We’re committed to matching adopters with pets that are suitable to their situation and needs. Because of this, please be prepared to answer questions about your life, your home, and how you plan to care for your pet. Your answers to these questions will help us match you with the right pet for you. The care of a pet is more than just providing food, water, and shelter – It is a commitment for the lifetime of that animal.

The COVID-19 pandemic, for the time being, has forced us to change the way we conduct certain aspects of our business. The Adoption Center remains closed to drop-in visitors and is open by appointment only. The process to schedule an appointment begins with the submission of an application. Once the application is approved, we will reach out to you to schedule an appointment. Please bear with us, the new process has slowed our response time.
If you do not see an animal that would fit into your home, we highly recommend to check our website weekly as new animals may become available! We do not offer a waitlist for specific breeds, types, etc. As always, adoptions are first come, first serve, meaning the applicant who is approved first gets their choice of available appointment times and thus his/her choice of animals to meet and adopt. We are not able to extend holds on any animals at this time, so we ask interested adopters to make their adoption decision during their appointment and be prepared to take their new pet with home with you.
The easiest way to communicate with us with any questions is via email – [email protected]
