Do you see a pet on our list that you are interested in? Please call the shelter or better yet visit to make sure they are still there. If they are not there we are sure you will still fall in love with a new four legged family member!

Please note that while we update the site as often as possible this is done by the help of volunteers and a shelter employee who volunteers their time to help. If a pet is a stray we often have very little information about them and cannot include much in the line of descriptions unless we really know the information to be true. We do not want to mislead or post inaccurate information about any animal. If you are interested in more detailed information about one of our listed pets, please call or visit the shelter and an adoption counselor will be happy to assist you. And as always, thank you for your support!

Adopting A Friend.......Come Visit Us!

Please help us make your adoption experience not only pleasant, but quicker and easier by providing us with the following:

  1. Legal ID with your current address
  2. Verification of home ownership; for example a tax bill
  3. A letter of permission from your landlord, along with a contact phone number
  4. Veterinary records or a letter of recommendation from your veterinarian

  5. Please understand we cannot place a hold on any adoptable animal without the above documentation.

    In the best interest of your pet's health and well being, and to stop the misery of overpopulation, all companion animals will be spayed or neutered before you welcome them in to their "Forever Home." This surgery, included in the adoption fee, may cause a delay of several days between the actual adoption and the time you can pick up your new best friend. We will advise you the best we can of our veterinarian's schedule at the time of adoption. Thanks!
