Adoption Event

Your New Best Friend Is Waiting for You!

There is no denying that pets bring endless joy and unconditional love into any home. But owning a pet is a lifetime commitment. Our adoption program is designed to ensure the placement of our animals into permanent, responsible, loving homes.

We encourage you to visit our shelter during business hours to meet and adopt your new pet! We appreciate that you may have a busy schedule or may even be driving quite a long distance to visit. For your convenience, we do offer an online application.

However, completing an application does not hold a pet for you. If there’s a pet that you are interested in, please complete the application and come into the shelter to put a hold on the animal.

  • Altering of animal (spay or neuter)

  • Distemper vaccination (Puppies and kittens may require a vaccination and then a booster in the future. We only require the first vaccination to adopt)

*There will be some animals that may have already been vaccinated and or spay/neutered, so please ask to find out exactly what you will need to bring in on adoption day.

Please phone the shelter on the day of adoption prior to picking up the animal to review all adoption procedures. You may go to ANY veterinarian or clinic that you choose, below is a list of veterinarians & clinics in the area:
