-If you currently have a pet(s), please make sure that they are healthy and up-to-date on vaccines with your veterinarian. You must also bring a copy of your most recent vet records or have a contact number for your veterinarian.

Special Adoption Programs
They may not be twins, but these animals go together like peas ‘n’ carrots. And we just can’t bear to see them separated! These pets have a special bond and must be adopted together and stay together.

They say two’s better than one. So it’s in this spirit that we offer our Twice as Nice program! Adopt one animal and get 50% off the adoption fee of a second (pets must get along; second adoption must take place within 30 days of the first).
ALS Program (Animals Love Seniors)
Qualifying adopters aged 60 and older can adopt a cat aged 2 years or older for $25 or a dog aged 2 years or older for a mere $25!
The Love Me Club
Ever get picked last or next-to-last to play in school games? That’s kind of how these fur babies feel. As members of The Love Me Club , these pets have been awaiting adoption longer than they should. So to help them find their forever home, we’ve reduced their adoption fee. (Dogs - $50; Cats $50; rabbits/ferrets - $25)
**Did you know that many wonderful dogs are overlooked at shelters across the nation every day simply because of the color of their fur? Black is the most common color of dog that you’ll find at any shelter or rescue. Most shelters & rescues find that black dogs, especially large ones, are often the most difficult to place into forever homes. As an adopter, you have the power to make a real difference in the life of a black shelter dog--a dog often slighted by other adopters in favor of a more colorful companion.
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.
