Please remember that adding a new companion animal to your family is a major decision, one that requires plenty of thought and planning. It can be a long-term commitment of 10 to 15 years. Think before you adopt.
Sharing your life with a companion animal can bring incredible rewards when you're willing to make the necessary commitments of time, money, responsibility, and love—for the life of the pet. When your family is ready to add a new companion to your household, please visit our kennels to meet your new best friend! We have a wide variety of wonderful dogs and cats available for adoption.

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.
