Adoption Hours

IMPORTANT Covid-19 Update

Currently we are CLOSED to the public and will not be open for adoption hours. We will schedule individual appointments for those only with Approved applications. 

We need to limit the traffic in the shelter to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and the public.

Thank you to all of fantastic volunteers and supporters!

To expedite the adoption process and to help us help you, please complete the on-line adoption application. You must fill out the application completely.  One of our dedicated adoption team members will contact you only if you are approved.

  • If you are unable to visit during our normal adoption hours we can schedule a time for you to visit.
  • Pets are family members and we encourage the entire family to be a part of the adoption process. Children must be 12 years old or older to go into our dog kennel area, but we do have acquaintance rooms available for children to meet with specific dogs.
  • If you currently have no pets please consider adopting two, a better adoption experience for you and them. Single pets also get lonely when you are away for several         hours.
  • If you are adopting a dog or puppy and currently have another dog please bring them for a meet and greet. Include them in the adoption selection process.
