Our Adoption Center, dedicated in 1991, is open 365 days of the year. This 17,000 square foot building houses, on average, 350 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. Forty-two indoor dog runs surround a bright and spacious atrium where potential adopters can become acquainted with possible new family members.

Nearby, two other sun-filled rooms and a wide alcove house the pets who eagerly await loving homes. To ensure successful, caring adoptions, there is an area reserved for counselors and prospective adopters to complete the application process, as well as a family waiting room.

Behind the scenes, the adoption center contains a nursery area, medical examination room and a grooming area where new admissions are health checked, vaccinated, bathed and groomed.

Visitors are reminded that adoption is a lifelong commitment.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
