Adoption Procedure and Hours

Can you make room for one more?

We have some amazing animals available for adoption. All pets come spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, so rescue a pet today and bring happiness to your life!

PLEASE NOTE: Dog adoption specials only apply to adoptions at the shelter and do not extend to off-site adoption locations.

Adoption Hours:
12:00pm – 5:00pm (Weekdays)
10:00am – 5:00pm (Weekends)

We have adjusted our hours and operations in a way to help our team and community to remain safe and healthy by minimizing people-to-people contact risking exposure to Covid-19. We will be limiting the number of people allowed in the shelter at any given time, to help with social distancing. We appreciate your patience when you arrive to look at our animals and adopt.

For the safety of you and our staff, everyone entering the shelter will be required to wear a face mask.

Looking for a new family member? Our animals for adoption are all listed in real-time on our website! If you don’t see an animal you are interested in, please bookmark the adopt a dog/cat page and check it often. (It changes daily and by the hour as pets are cleared for adoption). Animals that are listed at this moment in time are what we have available for adoption. Once an animal is adopted they are automatically taken off of the website (with the exception of animals located at offsite locations).
