Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are available online all the time at We do not have people meet the dog in person until they have been approved and discussed one particular dog with its foster home.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an online application process where the potential adopter completes the application and provides information for reference checking, vetinary reference and personal contact information. A phone interview is conducted with the applicant while all other aspects of the application are being checked out. Finally, we have one of our volunteers come meet the applicant in their home. When that is all completed (maybe 2-3 weeks) the Executive Director does all the placements.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
